Finally rested enough to get up the energy to submit a blog post.
Takes me two full days to recover from night shift and then its almost time to go back to work! Cest la vie.
Noah and I went to our new doctor today, Katina Martin. Besides her office being in a beautiful, rural yellow, Vermont farm house made over into perfect green pottery barn-esque amazingness, a copy of the newest Mothering magazine sat in the lobby/solarium.
It's "Verhemian" - a term Bryan just coined in a moment of genius. Defined as follows :
Verhemian : "Vermont agro-hip bohemia meets classic americana, something or rather "
Obviously, I'm in love.
She did have a lovely painting of the Hindu goddess of fertility, Lakshmi -- or at least maybe thats who it was. I have no idea if she follows any sort of religious belief but it was a gorgeous painting.
She mentioned they are trying to start a free standing birth center in Vermont- currently they aren't allowed by law to be free-standing..only affiliated with a hospital. That would be very cool if she was able to do that. I don't know of any birth centers near me. Right now she only does home births, of course if you are transferred to a hospital, they would go with you but they don't have Dr. privileges there....which is a bit ridiculous. But again, the only reason you would transfer would be if something went wrong and you needed an OB for surgery or whatnot.
We had a good time though..... Noah weighs 23 lbs...and around 32 inches I think.amazing.!
He kept busy the whole time- we are currently dealing with a bout of thrush but its slowly resolving itself.
Now onto a night with the hubby...finally!
