My Husband is an Expert in Reproductive Health

Catie- I owe you a big thanks for your additions to my list. (Readers- they're in the last entry's comments). And you are so right about all of them. I'd like to elaborate on the family history. Not only do people tell me about what their spouse has (hopefully NOT genetically related) or their brother-in-law/neighbor/friend, but they also name things that are so not genetic. Such as back pain. Especially the young drug seekers. "Oh, my dad has this same bad back. He has to take morphine."

Also funny is the patient who comes in for minor pain and says that they tried a friend's morphine/oxycodone/etc. and it worked really well. Ummm... yeah, it should have. I should be able to cut your flippin' arm off in clinic after taking that stuff. But you aren't getting it for your papercut. And taking someone else's narcotics is considered I-L-L-E-G-A-L.

I also wanted to share a funny Aaron story. Last night I was talking to a friend on the phone about her infertility and her current cycle. When I got off the phone, Aaron asked if she's ovulated yet this month and if they were able to do the IUI. Not only did he remember what she's having done currently, but he was able to calculate exactly what cycle day she is on based on where I am. He figured she would be ovulating in the next day or so... It's a mixture of sad and extremely cute. When your husband not only knows everything about your cycles, but also those of your infertile friends... I think this couple needs a baby, STAT!!!


  1. My favorite is when I am taking a new ob patient intake and EVERYONE says that it is their generations turn for twins. Just because your great aunt husband's sister had twins does NOT mean that you are next in line. (What makes it really bad is when they are 16 and say that they are hoping it is their turn for twins!)

  2. I think I know which patient your talking about and I havent worked there in 5 months.. LOL.. Yes I'd like some Morphine please...

  3. This is pretty funny :) I really think our husbands need to get together and compare. I would love to be in on that conversation. Especially if other people are around and are like what the heck are these boys talking about and how in the world do they know their sperm count. hahahahahah

  4. Hahaha...that is funny! God bless husbands who are in tune to your cycle!

  5. Aaron is so cute! It is sad that he knows that but so sweet! He is such a keeper!

  6. Hey Amber,

    I love the little story about your husband. What a great devoted father he will be, he's already so devoted to your future baby's creation. :)

    Wanted to let you know also, that tomorrow on my blog you are getting a blog award! Stop on over and check it out.
