It's official. I'm a woman.

Guess what I got to do today?

It's something special for just us ladies.

I got my boobies squished.

My mother is going to love that I just said that.

Yep, I got my first mammogram today.
When I walked in they handed me a list of things for me to check yes or no on.
  • Has anyone in your family had cancer? yes
  • Was it BREAST cancer? yes
  • WAS IT YOUR MOTHER?!?!?! ack! yes! I get it, I'm high risk! Stop shouting at me stupid questionaire!

So, there I was, high-risk patient, 32 years old, getting my first mammogram.

It wasn't bad at all.

But I did celebrate when it was over.

Cheetos were involved.

CB said...

I think that is awesome!! Good for you!! And Props too for using the term, "I got my boobies squished"! I feel like saying so much that I don't on my blog because my mom says I tell everybody everything..and my grandparents read it too. Go Danna!!

Ashleigh said...

Actually, squished boobies are less...ummmm...personal than I thought you were going with that title. I was bracing myself for a "Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret" moment there.

You should do something nice for your boobies today. Maybe one of those bras that Heidi Klum swears is "The One!"

Polly said...

Ashleigh....I just about wet my pant laughing so hard! Oh Margaret!

Awesome. Thanks for picking this day to blog about this topic. My CO-WORKERS are thrilled. Ya see, I was just bragging about my cute little nieces, and they wanted to see pictures. So I said "sure! my sister has a blog with pics of the little cuties!" And boom....I pull up the blog....to see "boobies" and "squished". As my co-workers lay around me on the floor, incapacitated by their peals of hysteric laughter, I thought to myself: "as embarassing as she is....I do love my sister and her crazy sense of humor."

Can't wait to get back and see you guys!

Seriously, how was it?? us "flattys" as your friend put it, well, we need to know. Not saying your a flatty..ok, just forget it.

Jenny said...

For those of you "flattys" who are wondering, I had heard it's worse for those with smaller boobs... and I have to say I agree...Ouch!!!

I got my first one last year at the age of 34, only because they found a funky lump. It turned out to be ok & the squishing part wasn't as bad as I thought it would be!
