I checked myself in at the gynaecologist clinic after a positive home test kit result. Little did I know it was the beginning of a series of comedy sketches.
#1 In about 15 seconds we saw the blip on the screen and we were done.
Gynae: Good! The foetus is in the right position.
Me: Oh great! So where is that?
Gynae: In the uterus…
#2 At the second visit.
Gynae: You see the blinking spot on the screen? That’s the heart.
Me, looking at the only blip on the screen: Oh wow.
Gynae, pointing at that same tiny blip: And that’s the foetus. Everything’s well.
Me: Oh that’s not the heart?
Gynae: No. The heart’s got to be smaller than the foetus.
#3 The 3rd time.
Besides learning to appear a little less bimbotic, thankfully the blip looks a lot more human and we can see clearly now the hands and the feet. Although there is no telling what other things I don’t really see. We are due for another visit in a week’s time!
