I will tell you how it went at the gyno today



In case you ever have to get an ultrasound because of painful periods, this is what you can expect. I had to drink 4 8 oz glasses of water before my appointment and HOLD IT while a woman pushed on my stomach with a cold plastic thing dripping of lube. That was the worst part since test 2, albeit weird at first, felt a lot better. Since she was a technician and not a nurse she couldn't insert anything inside of me, but rather handed me a VERY LARGE plastic, um, phallic shaped, long device ,for me to insert. This is test two. With which she then manipulated, very slowly, around my (cervix? These terms are not in my daily vocabulary and having never given birth I do not know my insides very well) looking to see if there are cysts and things that should not be there. This was not entirely unpleasant.

Big paintings! Bigger than me. This one is for a group gallery show I would very much like to get into. I cant say anything about it yet. just yet. Im making a video for it and will be finished tomorrow evening.

Here is tonights eBay auction

Suzi I love the new look and it loads faster on my poor ole G4.
I hope you get things all better below the belt. Gyno visits are never fun.
I'm so happy you're doing a large painting. It reminds me of one of my favorite dolls I had as a little girl. She was bigger than me with black yarn hair. Her name was Lucy.
Have fun Su
Kel

Hope you had good results!

Glad you didn't do a gyno cam for this! I think they call that thing a wand. I had to have it done during a second ultrasound while pregnant. And there's nothing magical about it being a wand. It's a turkey baster! Anyways, love the big size of the painting and hope you get into the show you want.

Charisse said...

Suzi, I love your art work. It really inspires me to art. I have one request though. As a black woman and mother of beautiful black girls, would you consider making a little brown girl or two. I would love to see the way you blend the colors to get a good consistent color. I have mixed one and it is ok but I would like to see what you would be able to come up with.

I hope you get a good result from your test honey. The BIG painting looks gorgeous!! Oh and your eBay link brings us to a blank page. Looking forward to the video!

my bladder was too full for my first ultrasound... so the tech tells me to go empty it "just a little" and come back.

Now,I know you've never experienced a fetus sitting directly on top of your bladder and prodding it with a foot, but it does not make "holding your pee" a feasible undertaking.

I didn't feel even a little bit bad when she got wet ;o)

Melanie said...

Yeah, my last two pregnancys I had an ultrasound at 8 weeks with 'the wand' - the thing is huge, isn't it? LOL!!!
But because she was a tech she couldn't insert it???? Sorry, but that sounds very weird to me since she has to be an ULTRASOUND tech, to do ultrasounds in the first place! She would have had to have training to perform it at all! Weird. Sending good vibes that all results come out all right!

michellesteeleart said...

Oh my gosh Suzi, you had to insert it yourself. I probably couldn't do that because I tense up on the gyno table. I hate periods, I want a hysterectomy already. I hope they fix your painful periods.

I love the big painting.

lol.... I had a similar experience except I was in a room with the doctor (a very, very old man) his assistant, a trainee and my husband. He handed me a large penis-like insert adorned with the latest latex protection... and I had to insert it in front of everyone. Then his had gripped the handle... and I swear this is how a joystick must feel... except I wasn't very joyful. Only then, after he pulled the thing out of me, was I allowed to go to the bathroom.

mesmeric..
the painting, i mean
enough 'chic chat' and talkin about your cupcake.. HA
i find your latest piece magical and enchanting! the colors are electric and the details are cool. i luv this one and i see some crazy, mad bidding going on! i'm in!

kizam said...

Hey Suzi you really have been busy!!! love all your new projects sweetie....painting big is fun..you go girl...hope the sun is shinning ..these winter storms and power outages really brought me to my knees but i am rallying and it's so great to see you've been so productive...have a good friday!

katybat said...

OMG i had this done TWICE first because they thought my ovary felt big during the pap. so i go in an am handed the non vibrating dildo and asked to insert it. what?! i started to laugh and i had drank enough water to fill the ocean ok a creek. so im trying to to pee while i insert this thing while someone is watching. i didnt know to laugh, to cry or to pee (i really wanted to pee:). so after the test, i get a call that they think im pregant after seeing the results. i break the news that uh im on my period do you still think im pregant. so i got a free ticket back to do it all over again. i was fine btw.

katybat said...

i meant trying not to pee. not pee. geez.
