I’ve encountered some terribly awkward situations as a pregnant woman/mother. But the thing that haunts me the most, to this very day is my trip to asda at 5 days post partum.. For you guessed it… Anusol.
At that moment in time, I had no shame. I’d just given birth to my first baby, I was no longer a ‘prude’… around 15 different people had witnessed the mess that was my lady garden.
Purchasing hemorrhoid cream was the least of my worries.. Or so I thought.
I needed relief desperately. I had my anusol in hand and off I waddled to the checkout (that ‘oh god yeah she’s just had a baby, kinda walk). Slammed it down on the checkout with my frozen pizza and nappies… The look the young male cashier gave me, to this very day. . Almost 4 years later, actually makes me want to swallow my own head…
That was embarrassing.
Bet he’ll always remember that… Probably scarred the poor lad for life.
Next time perhaps, I ought to go to tesco and use scan as you shop…. Lesson learnt eh.
