I Ask My Doctor The Craziest Questions

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Gooooood morning!


Yesterday started bright and early with a delicious breakfast: a brown rice wrap with sliced banana, almond butter, and marmalade with a glass of green juice. Easy, nutritious, and delicious.

After breakfast, I did a little work and then took this funny creature for his morning walk:

That face. It gets me every time.

After that, I got ready for the day and then drove to my 26-week doctor’s appointment. When I arrived, I somehow scored an open meter spot in Brookline with 1.5 hours of time on it. Finding an empty meter spot in Brookline is definitely lucky, so finding one with time on it was like winning the lottery! Hey, it’s the little things in life, right?

Things at my doctor’s appointment went well. My doctor listened to Baby Haupert’s heartbeat (strong) and measured my stomach (large). And then I asked her a bunch of random questions””about painting the nursery, my abs separating, doing headstands”¦ I swear, I always have the craziest questions to ask her, but she’s really nice and never makes me feel dumb when I ask them. Plus, I always try to think she’s probably heard worse! Haha!


When I got home, I was more than ready for lunch. Thankfully, we had a bunch of leftover in the refrigerator, so I just had to reheat them: Trader Joe’s Pizza Burger with homemade guacamole, sweet potato tots, and steamed spinach.

A little while later, I broke into the guacamole again. (I mixed some peas in for some added nutrients!) This time, I ate it with cucumber slices and tortilla chips.

A few hours later, I headed to CrossFit. We did the “Healthy Living Challenge Baseline” workout from January to see if we had improved. I ended up finishing 54 seconds slower that my first time, but I’m 9 pounds heavier now and still managed to do all the pull-ups, so I was happy.

After CrossFit, I ran a few quick errands and then headed home for dinner. I made a couple of homemade pizzas earlier that afternoon (recipe coming soon), so all we had to do was reheat them for dinner.

After dinner, I ate, not one, but two containers of Greek yogurt with chocolate sprinkles mixed in. The cool, creamy yogurt just tasted so good and, hey, Baby Haupert probably needed the extra protein and calcium, right?

I spent the rest of the evening watching TV and cuddling with Murphy on the couch. As you can see, things are working out great with his bed. #fail. Haha!

Questions of the Day

What’s your doctor like? Are you comfortable asking him/her “crazy” questions? What’s the most usual question you’ve ever asked your doctor?



  1. I always ask the most random questions! they usually aren’t even health related :D! One time I asked my doctor if before Hens lay eggs, do they mate with roosters like we do or what happens! ( I was little okay, don’t judge!) 😀 she was a bit baffled but answered anyways, funniest moment!

  2. At my postpartum 6 week appt after my second baby, I was CONVINCED things were “off” with my, er, lady parts, and totally made the classic mistake of going google -search crazy… I self-diagnosed myself as having uterine prolapse (basically the uterus is descending out of you, like down and out the only way it could possibly get out) and I was explaining my fears to my midwife knowing that I sounded like a madwoman…. she kept a totally straight face while I babbled, took a look, and said “yep! Looks totally normal for 6 weeks post-baby #2!” I felt like such a fool. Leaned my lesson about internet self-diagnosing haha.

  3. You seem to have great luck finding nice doctors! 🙂 I can’t find one who gives me the attention or care I want for anything! Good job asking all your questions. You deserve to ask.

  4. When I was pregnant with my twins I had a bit of a “leaking” problem and rushed into my OB afraid I was leaking amniotic fluid. While checking me out, she asked me to clear my throat and when I did, I peed ALL OVER her!! She then told me the boys were smashing my bladder…. so I asked her to draw me a picture of what she thought it looked like. I really don’t know why I asked, but once you pee on a person how much more awkward can it get? The picture is in my twins’ baby book and I plan on showing it to their prom dates 😉

  5. Awww… “Tina+1” at Crossfit. How cute is that??

    BTW: Congrats for knocking out 15 pull-ups. Pregnant or not, that ROCKS!! (I can’t do a single one, but I want to get strong enough to do 10 one day!)
