As many of you know, they check your lining using an internal ultrasound machine which I like to call Mr. Wandy. If you haven't had the pleasure of an appointment with him I will try to describe what he looks like.
He is long and skinny so he can fit just where he needs to go. He is white and plastic with a cord coming out of the bottom that attaches to the machine. He looks a bit like a curling iron without the metal barrel. He is usually covered with a condom and a bit of lube on the top. The first time I saw him I was a bit freaked out, but now I'm such a pro I hardly notice he's in the room.
The scan I had last week started off like any normal scan. I am called by the nurse and follow her to the exam room. She chats with me about the weather while I undress from the waist down and assume "the position." It's at this moment that I notice something is different about Mr Wandy.
Instead of being covered by a condom, he is being covered by a blue rubber glove. To be more specific, he is being covered by the middle finger of this blue rubber glove. There is a bit of lube squirted on top of the middle finger. The rest of the fingers and the thumb are flopping around limply while the middle finger stands at attention.
Now I'm assuming they used the glove because they were out of condoms. But I do have to say that it felt a bit strange being fingered by Mr. Wandy.
