The Three Most Offensive Words a Dr. Has Ever Said to Me
I made the appointment to see my doctor. With the holidays and everything else, I could only get an appointment in January. Now, since I have been told repeatedly since I was 19 that I would never get pregnant without hormonal help, I wasn't worried at all when my period never returned. I have gone years without one.
Three days ago I took two home pregnancy tests and ... SURPRISE!!! Both were positive. I called the doctor's office to change the nature of my appointment (ironic that it was for b.c. lol). When I went in to see her, she was wonderful. Very supportive and kind she was explaining all the things that I needed to know about this pregnancy (since she wasn't my doctor for the last one).
Then, she looks at my birthday and says, "Oh, I guess I won't be able to deliver for you. Since you will turn 35 before the delivery we have to consider you to have EXTREME MATERNAL AGE."
I like my young doctor. She is good. She didn't mean to make me feel like I am 50 and knocked up. But I have decided that those are the three most offensive words I have ever had a doctor say to me! I am hoping to recover my sense of humor about this sometime before retirement ... I mean, delivery. LOL
