- I bet you were the only one who has ever talked to her about their cervix!!!
I didn't go back for my 6 week checkup after DD2 (which was also a VBAC - just not at home, cause I is a wuss) but after DD1 I had already started taking classes at the hospital I delivered at (creighton model) and when I told my doc that he was actually kind of versed in it........although it was pretty funny - because he asked when my last period was and I was like.......ummmmm 11 months ago? and then he asked when I was expecting my NEXT period and I was like......ummmmmm?? I have no idea, is this a trick question??
He was actually surprised to learn that I knew I was going to possibly ovulate before my first period - but of course that didn't stop him from telling a story about a woman who got pregnant 2 times before her 6 week checkup........3 births in 2 years! yikes!
To this day I still don't know what that story had to do with me............I guess he was just trying to let me know that you CAN get pregnant without getting your period? I dunno.
It was also funny, because I told him I was taking the classes at the hospital he works at and he was like - "yeah, that is because they are a Catholic hospital" and I'm like.......uhhhhh, so am I!!
