How to Have Fun at Your Prenatal Visits

Having fun at your prenatal visits!

Have fun at your prenatal visits

If you’re pregnant and seeing an OBGYN – you, the doctor and nurses will soon become very familiar with each other.

You will reveal things you never thought you would have to tell someone.
You will be touched in places you never wanted to be touched.
You will have to be weighed regularly while you are at most likely the largest weight you ever will weigh.

Let’s just say this – those prenatal visits aren’t an event you will look forward to.

That being said, life should be fun. And what better way to make the best out of a bad situation then to have fun at your prenatal visits.

Before you think that I’m a crack smoker, here’s a journey of my last pregnancy, at the doctor’s office.

Yes, I bring my phone everywhere and I promise, I don’t make it a habit to bring my camera into the bathroom, outside of the OBGYN’s office that is.

Having Fun At Your Prenatal Visits


Yes, this is an IUD. This photo went to my circle of friends with the caption "If I had filled out the forms for this, I wouldn't be here right now." It's so true, but there is a reason for everything.

A few tips for having fun at your prenatal visits:

  • Make sure your OBGYN has a sense of humor
  • Find a group of friends that can laugh with you. At each visit I texted a group of my friends photos from the OBGYN office (hence what the above photos are from). It’s now become a tradition. We all know when each is at the OBGYN.

Live life fully. Even when you go to the OBGYN. Have fun.
