A Question for the Ladies

This question has struck me a few times now, but I've always forgotten to write about it.

When going to the doctor for those wonderful yearly exams, or during all those OB appts when pregnant.....what do you do with your clothes?

Do you just throw them off and let them lay in a pile? Or do you fold them up neatly? Do you hide your undies inside your clothing?

I know, weird question. This came to me as I was getting ready for tanning the last couple times. (No shit about tanning please, I'm trying to even out last year's tan for the strapless bridesmaid dress I'm wearing in just over 2 months).

My answer: I'm more of a fold type at the doctors office. And yes, I hide my skivvies inside the folded clothes. I also shave my legs for my doc, which Jason thinks is extremely funny.

Good question. First, I usually dress in the gown really quickly, then, I hide my undies in my clothes and then fold them on the chair. Lastly, I try to situate myself on the table so that my but crack is showing when the doctor walks in. Oh, and try to think of something besides sitting on paper, trying not to make noise covered into only a sheet. I hate that. It feels, well, mortifying. To me, anyway. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog!

I meant to say so that my butt crack is NOT showing.

Great post!

I hide the undies too in my piled up /folded clothes. Doesn't it seem like you're sitting there bare-ass for an enormously long time before the Dr. walks in?

I also shave my legs, and "maintain other areas" to be completely presentable. I know... weird!

Well, I just kind of wad them up into a ball and throw them on the floor. It's always kind of embarrassed me that I do this, but I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.

Oh, I'm a fold and hide kind of person, too; which is rather strange considering said doctor is up close and personal with my who-ha and yet I'm too shy to share my drawers.

I'm with Dawn...fold up and hide the undies. I also makes sure that I've shaved my legs and other areas are good too :-) Your so funny D...

Dawn said...

It's like a beauty contest of the uglies! :)

I too fold the clothes and hide the undies inside. I am also guilty of shaving my legs and other aforementioned areas. My husband also gets a kick out of it...but it just feels wrong not to do it, KWIM?

I do a combination of both, fold pants but do hide undies. I hate the "gap sessions" but they are necessary.

I hang everything up on the hooks behind the changing screen and tuck my folded unmentionables into the pocket of my jeans. :smirk:

I also take the time to shave my legs and tidy up other areas of unchecked winter-growth. :p

I like to spice things up by wearing rainbow or leopard-print toe socks to my exams and I keep them on with my exam gown. :D My midwife always looks forward to seeing what surprise socks I have in store for her. :D
