I Love Doctors?

Do I love going to the doctor? No, I really don't. But I was quite shocked what I found when I was looking at my calendar a few days ago.

I have gone to some kind of doctor's office or clinic at least once a week for the last 22 weeks! That's 5 months! And a lot of weeks I went more than once. I'm pretty sure I've had more appointments in the last 5 months than in the whole rest of my life combined.

Before Kaitlyn was born I was going to my Obstetritian's office to see my doctor, have ultrasounds, get non-stress tests, and have blood work done. I also went to a specialist for gestational diabetes and a physical therapist for my lower back pain.

Since Kaitlyn has been born I have gone back to my OB's office for a check up, had more blood work done and gone back to the diabetes specialist, taken Kaitlyn to her Pediatritian several times, and gone to the Breastfeeding Clinic at the hospital a few times.

And after 22 weeks of going to those places - this week we finally have no doctor appointments scheduled! We actually don't have any scheduled until 2 months from now, when we take Kaitlyn back to her Pediatritian for her 4 month check up and shots. Hopefully we won't need to take her in for anything before then.

Wow, that's a lot of doctor visits! Hooray for finally having some time away from it all! :-)

I am not fond of doctors either! But we are headed there tomorrow! ;o(
