One morning last summer I snuck into a little-used, windowless conference room. I had the phone number for my OBGYN of choice scribbled on a post-it note, and dialed it up. I kept peeking behind me at the door, scared my clandestine telephonic outreach would be discovered, and then,
"Doctor's office, can I help you?"
Oh, my cue!
"Yes, hi...I am calling because I..."
And I could not think! What words are used to communicate the fact that you need to see a doctor because a stick (or 5) is telling you you've got a poppy seed filled with human potential growing in your tummy?
"...I'm calling because I, uh....tested positive for...um...pregnancy?"
That works, right?
