today was my first appointment with my German OB. i had read a couple things that make me very excited to deliver here… aaaand, a couple things that made me a bit nervous.
for example, i had read that German OB’s tend to not care so much about privacy or modesty during exams. like, no gown, no doctor politely leaving the room while you strip down to your skivvies & then some, other docs walking in & out during your exam, etc. while I’ve never counted myself a prude, this was a bit disconcerting. i never realized how much i clung to what little dignity those thin paper gowns afforded me until I thought they would be taken away.
as captain & I walked to the office, i admitted i was nervous. like, sweaty palm nervous.
i’m pleased to report that my fears were unwarranted (as fears so often are) and the appointment, and doctor, were lovely. finding a new doc is officially crossed off the list – YES!
to celebrate seeing our little one perfectly healthy (and shockingly tall!) captain & i went out for a fine german feast. oh, german faire… where have you been all my life?
we started with pretzels. captain’s with an herbed creamed cheese; mine with whipped butter, since i’m off german cheese until little one arrives due to the lack of pasteurization.
next, came hubs salad. i taste tested, don’t you worry. it was wonderfully crisp & fresh. a pleasant prelude to what i knew would be a very heavy main course.
and then, the main event. captain ordered the Bayern-Pfännchen which consisted of grilled pork sausage, baked meat loaf, bacon and fried egg with fried potatoes. i’m bummed i forget to picture take, but it looked and tasted delicious.
i had Gebratene Rostbratwürste. or, grilled bratwurst with fresh sauerkraut & mashed potatoes. aka: pregnant woman HEAVEN.
my first foray into german cusine was a rousing success & overall, i must say… it was a pretty spectacular thursday. and tomorrow? moving day – yippee!!
good thursdays guys & dolls… bella.
