Time for an Anatomy Lesson!

I'm a smart person but, not the smartest person when it comes to science/biology or even anotomy. I'd like to think that I have a basic understanding of some basic body parts... hands, feet, nose, hip, butt, ect. Aparently, I DON'T!

Today was the day we went for our glucose testing and Rh shot. I will updated you later on the glucose testing we wont know for a few days. However, I can update you on the Rh shot.

The nurse said, we give this shot in the hip. (See image of where I think my hips are -- except, I don't carry a flask in my pocket and mine don't look as nice).



Which hip do you want the shot in? "Um... the right?" I didn't really care but, since she asked.

I pulled my pants down a little. She told me how to stand -- which was a little weird and then said, "You will feel a pinch then it may sting a little".

Well, she proceded to pull my pants down a little (or a lot) more and gave me a shot.

Here!



The exact place to arrow lands. That is NOT MY HIP (and the shot DID burn.) I hope everyone is having a great day and that your nurses passed anotomy.

Hmm..I'm not that smart either, but I definitley am with you on where I thought the hip was too. Maybe she was afraid to use the word 'butt'?
good luck on your glucose test.

Seriously.. that's funny. Did I not get that far in my pregnancy? I didn't think I did any blood work, let alone an RhFactor test. Hum. Oh, and your cat is hilarious! It makes me sad that ours are outside. :(

Well your hip is connected to the butt...so at least she got in the same region.
