Doctor, doctor... I can't stop making jokes

So the nausea and sickness is finally easing off.  Yay!  I haven't been sick for a couple of weeks now, though I sometimes feel a bit icky, especially when I've just got up.

Today I had an appointment with the consultant, as I have a minor medical condition (hypermobility) that can interfere with pain relief during labour.

"It shouldn't be a problem," she said.  "We just need to make sure that when you're in labour, the midwives don't take advantage of your hypermobility to put you in positions that put stress on your joints."

"OK," I said.

"For example," she continued, "we wouldn't want you to have your legs wide open - one over here and one over here."

"No," I mused.  "That's how I got into this trouble in the first place."

  1. This made me laugh out loud!

    I like your spirit.

    I'm not upduffed yet, although very keen to be... but I too have hypermobility (7/8) - I never even THOUGHT of it as a problem during labour but it makes sense!!

    Love the blog - hilarious.
