When I was pregnant with the boys, my OB earned the nickname of "Dr. Tact". I know Ms. Goddess in Progress met him, and has some wonderful stories of her own about how he completely lacks any tact at all!
Anyway, that actually doesn't bother me, so I stuck with him for this pregnancy. And I've been surprised that he's not been overly un-tactful this time around. I was wondering if he took some kind of "be polite to patients" class in the past 4 years.
We were scheduling my appointment for next week, and I said, "The nurse told me I'd need to come in for a non-stress test."
His response: "Oh yeah, because you're SO old."
Thanks. Thanks a lot.
So this elderly mom refrained from punching him in the nose. See, age brings restraint, so it's not all bad!
