Prebirth appointment

Last Friday I went to the hospital for what's called a prebirth appointment. There, I preregistered so I won't have to register when D-day arrives, and then I had an appointment with a nurse to go over my medical history, learn infant CPR, share my birth plan, install the car seat, etc.

The nurse wasn't ready when for me when I arrived, so they sent me to the waiting room. You'll never believe it. There with her family was a woman in labor that very moment. She was awfully young. She and her baby-faced hubby were probably twenty or twenty-one. I think her belly was even smaller than mine! And her legs were so tanned and shaved. I thought there was some kind of rule that by the time you went into labor, you were supposed to be too fat to bend over to shave your legs.

Some moms get a total pedicure with flowers and designs on their toenails. But I don't think it will make a bit of difference in the big scheme of things.
FYI: I had Jon's Grandma help me struggle into pantyhose before I would go to the hospital. Who knows what I was thinking- I had to take them off to be checked!! Hormones were really kicking in.

Husband shaved her legs and she probably tanned nude on the back porch. LOL

Pantyhose. I love it!

And Sherri, you're probably right. That babyfaced husband must've shaved her legs. :)

I had Brooke Wax my legs during pregnancy cause there was no way I was going to be able to reach them.

Good lord. And here I was prepared to deliver in a hairy state. I wonder how Bob is going to feel about having to shave me legs... (Actually, I have to admit that I'm still able to shave my own legs. My real problem is that I can't find the charger to charge my electric razor!)
