Anyways the hilarity began during the question portion of the exam when once again they first asked me my marital status - Married. Followed by asking me if I'm sexually active - My husband would certainly hope so! Then my favorite question which is how many sexual partners I have- ONE!!!!! Okay I know there are some skanky married chicks that probably have more than one but the question still cracks me up.
During the exam the doctor, knowing I'm recently married, of course asked me about our baby making plans. And since most of my knowledge of baby making comes from watching Teen Mom I did have a few questions. Ummm did you know that some women don't get their period again for up to 6 months after getting off the pill?!?! This was brand new information to me. So basically that would mean having to pretty much take a pregnancy test on a weekly basis to see if you're late because your pregs or because your body is just wonky. Good thing they sell those at the dollar store!
We then somehow transitioned to talking about those nutty women on TLC's "I didn't know I was pregnant" and my doctor said she's had patients like that! One went full term without knowing (obviously she hadn't been to the doctor in those 9 months). Another one found out at 6 months during her annual exam after insisting there was no way she was pregnant. I asked my doctor how on Earth it's possible to not know you're pregnant for 6-9 months. Her response "Denial". Hell, wouldn't you feel the baby kick after a while? Though I suppose they write that off to just being gas. I just don't get it.
Do any of you know someone who went more than 5 months not knowing they were pregnant??
