Cheeky midwife

28 Jan

Just had another Midwife appointment and we went over my birth plan. Seemed most of it they would be doing anyways. There were only a few things we had to have a conversation over was her constantly using the word pain, I kept saying she could say intense, or uncomfortable but not pain. She just kept slipping back into the word when she was talking about procedures and such which would make us laugh. So that’s a positive at least.

I also told her I was fine with having them know how far along I am (without doing internals, more outer palpitations) but that I didn’t want to know. She didn’t quite understand this as she just assumed I would want to know that I’m 8cm, but I said if I’m only 4cm that could really set me back. I also truthfully wouldn’t want to know I’m 8cm because then I could see my brain thinking it’s almost over, but then what if it isn’t?! It would make me impatient. Anyways I tried to explain this to her, she just sometimes doesn’t get it.

As she was leaving she was saying she’d be back to check my blood pressure (she’d forgotten her stethoscope). Then she turns around and says “I can say check can’t I?” And then started cracking up. I just told her she’s getting too cheeky.
