Actually, it's closer to 7 months than 6, but whatever. Life is going great!! I'm far enough in my OB training to where I can't go back now, haha. I'm NRP-certified, and have completed the required OB classes through work (refreshers, mostly, of the OB basics we learned in nursing school with more focus on the complications and what we can do about them), and next week I'll be taking a two-day class in on fetal monitoring. After that, I'll have all of my "classwork" completed and will just be waiting for some actual, real, hands-on learning! That's the downside of working in a small rural hospital -- last year we had 60 births. For the entire year. This could take a while . . .
But that's okay. I love learning new things, and I feel like the OB stuff just kinda comes naturally to me. People might think I don't "get" a lot of the OB/GYN stuff, because I've only birthed one child, but . . . no. I've been pregnant seven times. When I was pg with DS, I read every single thing about pregnancy and childbirth that I could get my hands on. I do consider myself pretty well-versed in OB/GYN matters, and having gone through the whole endo-fibroids->hysto thing just kinda cements that.
Not much else is going on, just trying to prepare for spring. We've had an unusually mild winter here in the upper Midwest, and even though I've already had to dig out my shorts and tank tops, this week it's supposed to be down in the 20's and 30's overnight again. It's weird, because the grass is green and the trees are budding, and DH even tried to mow the lawn this weekend (until the belt on my trusty ol' John Deere 316 snapped), but it's still early spring.
Healthwise, I'm feeling pretty good!! The "dropping" feeling is gone. I was having a gallbladder attack a few weeks ago, but that seems to have subsided for now, too. I'm just tired and nauseated all the time now. People keep joking that I must be pregnant . . . hahaha . . . it was funny the first four times.
Hope all is well!!
