Tips on how to choose a good gynae

First of all, don't expect that I would really give you a good tips on how to choose a good gynae, because this is a blog post, not a medical article.

Personally, after seeing my gynae for good 8 months, I've figured out probably I can at least share one good tips on how to choose a good gynae: Choose the one with great sense of humour.

As you know, pregnancy is full of excitement, frustration, worries, anticipation, uncertainties, pain, anger blah blah blah blah... It would be good if someone with good sense of humour could add some liveliness to your pregnancy experience.

On my previous regular visit to my gynae, doctor commented that my Siu Yip is pretty large for its 'age' (gestational age lah~). As I am all into natural delivery, big baby could spell challenges during delivery. So I asked my doctor: So if the baby is too large, does it mean that I cannot go for natural delivery?

My doctor just replied calmly in a matter-of-fact way: No, you still can try for natural delivery, just that the baby will get stuck during the delivery.

I was like -.-'!|... What kind of reply is this?

Today, another regular visit (as you are close to due date, you do visit your gynae more frequently than usual). I was pretty worried about my constant sharp stabbing pain in my vagina (the feeling is like someone just stabbed a sharp knife into it, sorry for TMI), so I asked doctor again, is that something that I should be worried about?

My doctor, suddenly get so excited about my question and said: You know what? You should ENJOY (he actually emphasized this word) these pains because during the delivery, it is going to be one million times more painful than these. So, enjoy them ya!

Mr.Yap and I both were like 'Walao...'
