things they don’t tell you about being pregnant #3

Doctors don’t believe in modesty. Daily occurances for them may be highly uncomforatable for you. It starts off with an oral history of your sexual and medical exploits and continually gets worse from there. Highlights include the internal ultrasound wand, gynecological exams, blood samples, pee samples, breast exams, belly measurements, monthly weigh-ins, all in various states of undress and potentially in front of one or more strangers and/or your significant other. Add in extra visits and examinations if you are labeled high-risk at any point or you develop a yeast infection (and you most likely will develop a yeast infection due to high hormone levels – another thing they don’t tell you about being pregnant). And all that is before you even get to the delivery room.
