The 6-Week "Green Light"

Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.

I love my hubby but I don't love him enough yet. I knew I had to schedule my postpartum checkup so I finally called the office.

Me: I need to schedule my six-week postpartum visit
Office lady: Ok well we actually can get you in around four weeks so let me...
Me: NO!
Office lady: I'm sorry?
Me: I'm not coming in until six weeks. If she doesn't have an opening then I'll wait as long as it takes.
Office lady: Well I have a five week slot...
Me: I had a two hour labor and no time for meds so I deserve a six week or longer slot lady.
Office lady: I don't understand.
Me: Do you have children?
Office lady: No.
Me: Do you have a husband?
Office lady: No.
Me: *sigh* ok I'll take the five week appointment but I don't want any record of my attendance. I'm not going to disclose this appointment till I am ready, you got me?
Office lady: *mumbles* this is the strangest call I've ever gotten.
Me: You haven't worked there long enough.

So not only do I have ZERO estrogen, minimal sleep and the milk production of a dairy farm, I am now "cleared." Ugh. We will see how long I can keep it on the DL.


Happy Friday!
