Ugh, how awkward. It’s SO awkward that I just have to laugh about it. Yesterday I was at the gyno (which in itself is torture) and I’m laying there spread eagle while the Dr and Nurse are doing the exam and I hear HOLY MOLY LOOK AT THAT RING!!!. They both stopped, grabbed my hand and oogled, then went back to business.
Then he told me to let him know when I’m trying to make babies. Ring=babies, apparently haha!
Most awkward ring moment, ever.

Hahahaha, that’s funny!
@MASPA: My doctor and his nurse would always ask me about school while I was in the middle of a PAP. I think it was their way of making it less akward…:/

Hahaha mine definitely talked weddings with me while she was doing her stuff. To be honest, I kind of appreciated it, because it got my mind off what she was looking at.

Mine would always carry on a convo too, but I think that’s to try to keep your calm and distracted from the unpleasantness of a PAP.
Ok, so let’s see this “holy moly” ring!

I would have killed for my last gyno appointment to be that normal. As it was, I got this awesomly culture-shocking mix of Transformers, The Wizard of Oz, and my lady bits. I was scarred for life.

Mine once picked my foot up out of the stirrup to get a closer look at my toenail polish. “WOW! What colour is that???” YOINK.

ugh, I hate with GYNs try to talk! I’m like “okay, remove yourself from in me, then we can have a chat about what I’m up to at work”

Wow- so awkward! And pretty hilarious…thanks for sharing that story!

Yeah, I mean, I appreciate the chit chat too sometimes, but sometimes it’s just like “OMG stop and FINISH already! haha!
I can’t imagine getting my foot picked up to look at my toenail polish! That’s pretty funny/terrible!
And the Wizard of Oz and Transformers have NO place in a gyno appt. Ever. Oooh we’re off to see the cervix, the wonderful cervix of OZ.
For those who asked, here’re the holy moly ring…

@Eight6Eleven: Ooooh, it IS nice! Are the side stones colored?
I think I’m going to start a spin-off thread for awkward doctor’s appointments. My Wizard/Transformers story needs to be told, but I don’t want to hijack your thread.
