Right now it is Friday morning, the day after my two test drives. I got the mail that my license is ready to be picked up on Tuesday, my Grandpa went and got it for me on Wednesday. Already on Tuesday we called and made appointments for two test drives, one in a Renault Captur with 120 PS and the other one in the new Honda Jazz/Fit with 130 PS. 

First, driving was no problem at all. I felt much better than in the driving lessons. I had no problem using those new cars, took me about a minute and I was used to them. The Renault came first and it was a good drive. Great car, some minor negative things, but overall a good experience. The Honda Jazz was a bit more novel for me due to the CVT. I'm used to double clutches, so it feel a bit weird at the beginning. 

So, it is going to be the new Honda Jazz/Fit Dynamic with 130 PS. Driving felt a tiny bit better in the Renault, but judging by the bigger picture the Honda has more to offer. More practicability due to the Magic Seats, more stuff in it and at least in Germany Honda has a great reputation for being very reliable. With the 130 PS it is okay to drive and I need to hit the gas a bit more than in the car I drove during my classes. 

There are no used cars around, so thanks to my Grandpa and family I'm going to get a new one. Due to my disability card I get a pretty good discount (I had no idea that car companies offer that) and well, I have the full warranty and everything that comes with it. We told them we need the weekend to talk it all through and on Monday we will finish the contract and by then I need to decide on a colour. My Mum said that if we get a new one, I should pick the colour I want, even if it costs a bit more. 

I'll add a picture and the link to the description of the car on the British Honda site (note sure if the US model the same as in Europe) and I will keep you updated about the delivery/pick up date.

The Honda Jazz is not sold in the US. But it does look very similar to the Honda FIT. They may be the same. Cute car, no matter what.

      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.
