I put on a nice demonstration of how to leave a urine sample in a tiny little pee cup at my last doc appt. I showed 'em all how it's done! I've got the skill and technique mastered, why not share?
Last Friday, I had my pregnancy checkup but forgot to arrange for a sitter or a sister to watch Princess Gracie. Oh, well, I'll take her with me. It's just a quick little checkup. So, silly me, I took along a 2 yr old to my ob appointment.
First thing you do at these checkups is leave a urine sample. No big deal, they have a nice little restroom between the waiting area and the exam rooms, so I just took the princess in with me. First off, she wanted the sharpie marker. Nooooo..... you do NOT get the sharpie marker! I wrote my name on the cup, which incidentally goes all the way around the cup cuz my name is so darn long and the cup is really small. Then I put the marker way up high on top of the towel dispenser. The next preggo woman is gonna wonder where the marker is. Ooops.
I take that back. First thing you do is shut and lock the door. That, I did.
So, I'm peeing in the little tiny cup, and Miss Gracie chooses that exact moment to figure out how to turn a doorknob and open a door. She did a wonderful job! Her first time opening a closed door all by herself! I can't reach the door from the toilet.... I'm peeing in the little tiny cup.... facing the open door.... people are following the nurse to an exam room and I'm screaming at Princess Gracie, so of course they all look. And more peek around to see what's going on too.
Yes, I put on a show for everyone at the clinic. If there were any people there not knowing how to piddle in the little cup they know now!
