So this morning I had my annual gyno appointment, as I am lying there in the stirrups, my gyno (who I love and know was just trying to make conversation) was asking me about my SO and then said “So, wedding bells in the near future?”. Thanks, doctor, not an awkward time to ask THAT question or anything! haha I just told her, “I’m hoping!” and then she goes on about maybe we’ll elope on our planned Alaska cruise next May (which I told her about). I just said, no don’t think we’ll be eloping, geesh!
Any bees with similar awkward stories of THAT question? I get it enough from my mom, grandma, etc. I didn’t want to hear it from my doctor, especially when I’m in that position!

Wait! Hold up! she asked you while you had her feet in the stirrups?! *facepalm!* Gwaaah. Sorry dude. how unconfortable. My lady parts would have clenched up so quick. I think all my emotions flow through my lady parts cause i have reactions to everything. OMG My convos with my GYN do not go farther then the weather and which birth control i should be using.

@Sapphire-Dreamer: Exactly!! While she was doing her business down there she asked!! It was definitely a “Whaaaa??” moment.

@MsYankee: Bad Waiting Bee Joke:
You know you have been together too long w/o a ring when your GYN is asking you when you will get married.

HAH why do they ask these things?? The weirdest one I ever got was when I got in the stirrups and she starts poking around. There’s a few seconds of silence, then “So…been having some enthusiastic sex these days?” Apparently I had some slight “abrasions.” It made me laugh, but afterwards I was like wait a second…she probably shouldn’t have said that! My husband STILL jokes about it every time appointment-making time comes around.
And once I got engaged, she kept asking about when we were having kids. Because THAT doesn’t get old.

oh my goodness that’s so awkward.. sometimes it’s just best to be quiet LOL.
I work in a medical practice and all my patients were super excited that I was engaged. One patient in particular asked me every time he would see me.. “So, are you still engaged?” “Are you still in love with him?”
Uhm, yes!! Kind of made me frustrated and a little embarassed as well.

On a similar vein, I get my bikini waxed from an older Vietnamese woman who is recently engaged for her second marriage and her children are my age. She asks me EVERY TIME if I’m engaged yet, and always jokes that coming to see her for a wax should help. It’s both endearing and totally awkward that she has taken such an interest in my personal life, especially when I DO really want an engagement so bad!
