Little happens during pre-natal checkups. The doctor checks your vitals, your baby's heartbeat, and takes a look at your vagina to make sure you're not yet dilating especially if it's not yet your due date. It is often uneventful.
Expecting their fourth child, Chris and Rachel McQueen knew the drill, and they certainly didn't expect to leave their doctor's office one day with an unforgettable experience. According to their Facebook video post, everything was going great, the usual checkup, until things got a little "got" in the ultrasound room.
At this point in her storytelling, Rachel was ready to burst out laughing so she asked Chris to reenact her reaction.
"Whoa! Whoa! Whatever you put in there, that’s hot! You got to go!" Chris said, imitating his wife.
Apparently, when the doctor started to examine Rachel down there, he accidentally reached for the hand sanitizer instead of a lubricating gel to put inside her! Talk about ouch!
"Worst experience of my entire life," Rachel said, while trying to contain her laughter. "We were literally laughing from ultrasound room to video!" she told The Huffington Post.
We can only imagine what the hand sanitizer felt like -- well, we don't want to imagine! We have to admire Rachel, however, for taking the boo-boo in good spirit. After uploading the video, the couple, who are parents to three kids ages 4, 3, and 1, even had the humor to post a Facebook status: "feeling clean."
The doctor was concerned about the aftermath of his error, but Rachel assured him that she's okay as long as he never does it again. "There was never any concern about the hand sanitizer. With no side effects a week later, all was well," Rachel said. They didn't think their video would generate so much feedback that they're just happy to have brought laughter to everyone who watched the video.
Rachel and Chris, who have a YouTube channel called MotherHood Madness, where they post snippets of their funny, crazy parenting adventures, will welcome their fourth child by the end of January.
