40-some­thing preg­gers: So my moth­er in­sist­ed on com­ing in­to the room when I had my last pelvic ex­am.

40-some­thing preg­gers: What’s worse is that she was stand­ing near the doc­tor while he was do­ing the ex­am. She was watch­ing.
Oth­er pa­tient: What? No way!
40-some­thing preg­gers: Then she said to the doc­tor, ‘Can I hold some­thing for you?’
