went to the doctor today: bladder infection.
pregnancy-safe antibiotics and lots of cranberry juice.
most memorable moment at the walkin clinic? the dr’s response to my “i might be pregnant” comment.
dr: anything else you need me to know?
h: did you tell him yet?
me: oh, i might be pregnant. 7-8 days pregnant.
dr: have you missed a period?
dr: have you been trying to get pregnant? trying really hard?
me [a little confused]: yes.
dr: ivf or what?
dr: [blank stare]
me: at home, you know, with a syringe.
dr: [pregnant pause.] oh, well, have you missed a period?
i had to shake my head at the whole thing. he totally assumed i was gay and not trying the “natural way”. i guess having my partner in the room was quite a tip off, but it was still the first time a doctor, without knowing that h and i are together, has made that assumption.
