Yes I had to wake up at 2 in the morning on tuesday to shoot up the ovidrel for a 2pm insemination
Yes the team came in for me at 2 pm when they only usually work in the mornings and Yes I am very thankful to them.
But as a side effect to the odd timing I got to wait in the waiting room during the midwife clinic. Boy was that fun.
pregnant woman: "Excuse me . . . is that the blah blah blah diaper bag?"
postpartum woman: "well yes it is"
preggo: "oh my goodness - do you mind if I take a look inside? . .. wow its so wonderful"
preggo numero dos: "your baby is so cute"
grandmother: "oh thank you"
preggo #2: (baby talk insues and then preggo #3 gets in on it too)
receptionist: I'm sorry I don't see you in our system
rude preggo" well thats because I changed my name"
receptionist "Can you please go down the hall to get that changed with registration"
exceptionally rude preggo "I already did the last time I was here"
receptionist "well I don' think it went through so I am afraid I am going to have to ask you to go try again"
really rude preggo: "don't they know who they are dealing with? I am full of hormones right now and going to get angry"
You wanna talk about full of hormones ... yup thats me. And if only I didn't work there and could have potentially be delivering this woman's baby in the near future, I would have layed into her like hot knife into butter. There is no excuse to be rude to the receptionist - She is a nice woman who is jut doing her job. But I refrained.
I was so happy when they finally called my name to get out of that waiting room.
Unfortunately of course I was being led into a room and I almost ran into one of the perinatologists. He looked at me, recognized me and hurried out of the way like he wasn't supposed to see me . . .why? Because what ever reason would I have to be a patient during the midwife clinic.
The rumor about me being pregnant will spread before I even am.
thats okay - will all be worth it when I pee on a positive stick - and at least everyone else will know before I do.
