After the nurse took my vitals and asked me a slew of medical history questions, I was left alone to change in the examination room. It was my first appointment for my first pregnancy, which, as most of you know, is "THE check-up."
Soon, the nurse returned with the doctor, who said, "Well, let's begin the exam. I have a student doctor with me. Is it okay if he comes in to observe?"
"Sure," I said.
As the student doctor walked into the room, a series of flashbacks played in my mind within a matter of seconds...
...college, freshman year.
...young man in one of my classes.
...sat next to me every day.
...regularly walked me to my next class.
...studied with me.
...mentioned he wanted to be an OB/GYN.
