Yesterday we had a little brownie-eating fest in the conference room for someone's birthday. As it was my due date, baby talk predominated the conversation. Here was one exchange:
My boss's boss: "So, are you dilated at all?"
Me: "Um, I'm not really sure I'm comfortable discussing the condition of my cervix with my boss's boss."
Boss's boss: "Ewwww."
Me: "Um, you're the one who asked if I was dilated."
Everyone is pretty much tripping that I'm refusing internal checks. My secretary said I shouldn't have stopped going to the doctor because the doctor would be able to tell me when I was going to have the baby based on my dilation.
Rofl at the thought of my midwife being stupid for not being able to do the same. People crack me up.
I try and educate, but every once in a while it's just easier and more fun to embarass.
Like when someone in my department asked "Have you and the midwife talked about what you're going to do in an emergency?" To which I replied "OMG NO! I guess we should start thinking about that, huh!
" I mean, seriously.
