So yesterday was my booking appointment and i'm not sure it could have gone any more embarassingly...

first off we walk into the waiting room and the MW asks if I am Maria...I completely forgot my own name and stood there open mouthed untill my OH told her I wasn't maria. MW then gives me a pot to do my urine sample in while we're waiting so off I trot to the loo to do the deed.

I go into the toilet and try to find the light switch...end up accidentally pulling the emergency cord and cue 2 women rushing over and knocking on the door shouting if im okay...

then I sit on the loo and try not to pee all over my hand as I do the sample..finish the sample...hiccup and drop the sodding thing down the toilet. I had to fish it out and put it in the bin and go and explain to the MW that I had dropped the pot down the loo and I needed a new one. This caused alot of laughter from the OH

The actual bit in the office went alright apart from a bit of freaking out when she got the needle out for the blood test.

So there you go guys, laugh it up. I don't mind. grin

Don't worry I striped naked for my first smear test, no idea why and obviously wasn't pregnant at the time. Dr did the test without saying a word on the way out she said oh just for next time we only need your bottom half??? I was cringing big time

I thought the gown they gave me once was a wee towel thing to put over my lap once, so I was sitting on the bed starkers with a gown over my knee and the doctor walked in and went "would you mind putting the gown on?" Mortified!
