Transcript of discussion with my obstetrician, Dr. NeitherOneOfThoseGuys, on Monday:

"OK - so you should know that with each successive section, it takes a little longer. This is what number for you?"


"Right. So while the baby will be delivered very quickly, it'll probably take more time to finish and close you up. There's a lot more scar tissue to deal with and we have to do our best to cut that all out so you'll heal evenly and cleanly."

"Maybe you could throw in a little tummy tuck - I mean... as long as you're in there anyway?" (yeah, I'm sure she's never heard that one before)

"Ha ha ha. You know, a lot of people ask me that. But you probably wouldn't want me to do it for you. Unfortunately, I lack the training for that procedure."

"Well, you should get it... because it'd be a really nice service to offer."
