I guess it is time to let the world know that I officially passed my boards. It is a pretty good feeling, and I am glad I can put Step 1 behind me!
Now…on to rotations! My first rotation is going to be in family medicine. I am a little nervous for how things are going to go. I am schedule with one doctor for a week, and then another week with a different doctor. Then, if all goes according to plan, I will have my baby exactly on my due date, take four weeks off, and then return for two more weeks of rotations.
It sounds nice, in theory, but I have a feeling something will go wrong. I am at 37 weeks now, which is considered “full term,” meaning this baby could come ANY DAY. Pretty crazy. Hopefully she is a punctual baby, but I can’t really count on that. I have no idea what will happen if I go into labor really early or really late, but I am just crossing my fingers I don’t have to find out. So far my pregnancy has gone very well and things have worked out, so I am just hoping that my good luck continues.
I can’t believe it is almost July! Seems like just yesterday I had a little poppy seed inside me, and now I have a honeydew melon! I am ready to get rid of this giant belly, but I know I am going to miss all these little baby kicks.
I have been enjoying Arizona so far. I love sitting by our pool in the mornings and going for a little swim. I have also been taking lots of naps while I still can. Monday I start orientation, which is good. I am running out of things to occupy my time, so it will be nice to get busy again…instead of just sitting around waiting for this baby!
