Conversation From A Marriage

Me: I hope they don't draw my blood tomorrow at the dr's appointment.
H (husband): Why? It doesn't bother you.
Me: Well, it won't be particularly fun with a baby. I mean, after the dr's appointment, then you have to go to another place for the blood draw, wait in line, and then get your blood drawn---all with a baby.
H: Well, other women seem to do it.


...and he wonders why I'm not making dinner tonight.

(oh wait...the reason why I'm not making dinner is because...I don't really make anything...except maybe jello...and cereal.)

But seriously....he knows that I've been trying to make other arrangements for Gage during my OB exam tomorrow. He knows that I don't want him to go. Not only will it be weird to have my son in the room while my legs are up in stirrups...but the last time he went to the dr with me, and it was just for a blood draw....he was not very well behaved. So, I am just not looking forward to the appt. tomorrow & Gage being there.
...and you know, I may be cleared to have sex again at the OB appt. tomorrow. You'd THINK he would be on his best & sweetest behavior. MORON.

Yes, you would think he would be on his best behaviour but you're forgetting that the male sex does not think like us. (Which is always the right way...)

Good luck with the appointment. Don't think I ever had to have a child accompany me to an OB exam. Yuck.

I have to take all three of my kidlets with me to the OB every visit! Luckily, my dr. doesn't do anything that requires me to put my feet up in stirrups except for the first visit and right near the end. I've got one, maybe two more visits before I have to start finding someone to watch the younglings for my appointments. I wouldn't mind so much if I only had to bring my youngest. After all, she's always following me into the bathroom whether I'm going potty or taking a shower. But my almost 4 year old or almost 6 year old? Awkward!

Yeah, those males are wired differently than we are.

I remember bringing my kids to my OBGYN appointments at times..most times. They were ok - thank goodness the nurse kept them busy at times. I do have firm memories of the baby being put on my chest while the doc did her thing down THERE. I had 3 kids in 3 years, so my kids were younggggggggggg.

I wish you an uneventful appointment, my dear!

Yes. Men just don't think that way...I guess. I don't really know how that think.

I didn't make dinner either.


I never make dinner.

Men are atupid. I think he doesn't care, because he doesn't have to actually do it. I have to take Porgie to my next OB appointment and to have blood drawn too. Because I am going to a new doctor's office, where the poeple aren't familiar with her, I am sure she'll be a pain in the ass.

You'd think he would be on his best behavior, but he is a man after all.

I have been trying to find someone to babysit River when I go to get my eye exam and I'm not having much luck, it looks like I might have to cancel the appointment again. I think my OB/Gyn is more understanding of having kids running around than my Optometrist.

Oh, having blood drawn is the worst! I'm taking it that your dr's office doesn't do it in the office? Mine doesn't, and the Qwest clinic was always so SLOW! I hope you don't have to have any drawn either. And I'm right there with you on the dinner. hmph!

Men don't think that far in advance. I mean, that's TOMORROW!!
I have had to do all those things and it sucks. I think for one weekend they should have to take the kids EVERYWHERE they go. And we should not go and not do anything for them so they can see how exhausting it is. I do girls getaway weekends, but that doesn't give them the true experience because I was always sure to clear the calendar and make arrangements for everything for the kids before I left. I don't do that anymore [evil laugh]

Men! Jeez! That's all I gotta say!

LOL! He probably THOUGHT he was being helpful. You know men (no offense to any male readers, here). They always want to make things right, but sometimes they're just, well, I dunno. Men!

At 1:04 PM , Blogger Beenzzz said...

That would have pissed me off too! Good luck though and I'll keep my fingers crossed that they don't draw your blood!

Wow husbands can be SO sensitive sometimes... Um NOT.
