it's baby time!

No - I'm not pregnant! lol Today was my first day in OB rotation, I'm pretty excited! Some of today's lecture left me feeling shocked that I'd actually had 2 babies! It's just that medical terminology that when you're pregnant the dr's don't use with you, you know, laments terms! I'm sure I'll adjust and I'm so excited to continue with this 8 weeks. This week will be really busy and tomorrow I go into the city to work with inner-city kids at a YWCA (yes I typed that right, YWCA, not YMCA). I'm not sure what working with girls ages 9-12 has to do with OB, I mean if they were pregnant young girls I would maybe understand but just young girls? Hmmm..... According to my instructor we're going there to show these girls that there are many options out there for them other than what their families are able to show them. Seems like this would have been a better thing to do during my mental health rotation but whatever! :) I think I've narrowed down my choices to either working in the NICU or working in a pediatric cancer ward. Both are hard fields but my heart wants to be helping kids and their parents as much as I can.

So anyway, I hope everyone is having a fabulous start to their week. I'm looking forward the challenges of this week!

I hope you'll enjoy the rest of your time in OB. I think it's great that you want to work with sick children, it would be a hard job to do but I'm glad there are people out there like you that want to do it!
