At the end of the last lesson as I parked the car I looked to my instructor and he sat there having a smile on his face. That should tell you how I'm doing. Automatic really changed my life. I now have five lessons or so with the automatic car and the difference is amazing. So I guess we are very slowly walking or rather driving towards the end phase. The nervousness before lessons is almost gone and I can talk while driving and I drive quite normal now. Which my instructor likes, but still I should stop at yellow traffic lights and not speed through... Difficult for him I guess, it shows me being very comfortable to drive and of course almost everyone drives like I do but I shouldn't drive like that during the exam.

The "100km/h race street" is my favourite part now. There is a traffic light at the beginning, and after that a long almost straight road with the speed limit of 100. Well, I tried out what my 200 PS car can do and how a "kick down" feels like. I loved it! 

My Grandpa is going to join us in the next lesson. I'm quite nervous having him as a passenger, so good practice for the final exam. 

Car wise we have found a model I really like and well, my instructor (who knows my Grandpa since a long long time) will support me in my "Grandpa buys his only Granddaughter a car"-project. :pb_smile: I have my eyes on a VW Up "high up" model. Not brand new like I wrote before, but not too old. Maybe a car that was used to show it to people or something like that. 

Plan B works!

Okay, screw the UP. It only has "Automated Manual Transmission" and not a "Direct Shift Gearbox". So back to the one I like the most, the VW Polo. (A bit more expensive though.)

      Well you inevitably have to get naked during some point of the birthing process...

      Even fundies have to - hell, Anna Duggar was filmed giving birth on a toilet - I challenge you to top that!

      But srsly just the pre surgery process - you can't be more exposed than that - luckily in that case we can knock people out.

      Bare chest for the 12 ECG, than the catheter insertion - which in males requires firmly holding the penis up with one hand at 90° - so honestly we are used to it.

      Childbirth is lots of things, it's amazing and magical, but it's also a very physical experience that can be quite raw and rough. I do think it's important to be able to ask these questions and get honest answers - after all, it's concerns many women share, and it's always better to have it all out in the open so we don't feel too embarrassed about things happening to our bodies that are natural and normal.

      sorry if I used women, I am a non-native speaker and unsure about the correct terminology to use "people who give birth"(?)

      I didn’t need a pregnancy test to know I was knocked up - my breasts were shouting it loud and clear from about a week before my period was due. I always did a test for confirmation anyway, but I didn’t really need to. Even my Dr used to joke about it. 
      I was stark naked during both labours because I was in the birthing tub. I will admit, I was shocked when my midwife helped me out of the tub to go to the bathroom and I started to walk to the door ... she said no, just stay there - and put one of those absorbent disposable mats under me. She told me just to pee on it and it was SO hard to do. Easier than getting dressed and walking down the hallway though 🤣

      I figure if it wasn’t okay, she wouldn’t have encouraged me to do it.

      they were all probably traumatized over the fat, naked lady.

      They definitely were not, a lot of what we do requires patients to be stark naked, that doesn't leave an impression on us. If staff are traumatized by people in their birth suits, they picked the wrong freaking job, cause that happens every 15 minutes. Srsly if somebody flashed me in a park i wouldn't even shrug my shoulders, business as usual.

      The only thing I'm concerned about is that it makes patients feel embarrased cause they think we might feel uneasy... rest assured we don't care.
