I survived my first week of medical school, and the white coat ceremony is complete. I got my master’s degree diploma in the mail the other day also. Last night after the ceremony, we saw Jurassic World and ate lobster. The dean of the school and a lot of the other students ended up going to the same restaurant. I kept running in to other students for the rest of the night. In the morning, we went to see our state capitol building and to an automobile museum. My mom watched the kids for us. Thank you so much. We really needed to get out of the house!
I really like the school so far. Everyone is so friendly from staff to the students. However, they have scared us pretty good during orientation so I am freaked out about the summer ahead of me. Talking to returning students during orientation that failed out of anatomy or the fall semester also didn’t help my nerves, lol.
The baby is doing well. We are 30 weeks pregnant, and I’m definitely feeling huge. I could only button up the top notch of my coat for my school picture, and I’m afraid that I might have waddled a little bit going across the stage, lol. The week after next, I’ll start non-stress tests weekly to better monitor the baby. Also, a second year medical student drew on my belly the other day to see if the position of the baby could be determined.
All the kids are doing great. They are all out of school now. Next year, I’ll have a third grader, a first grader, and a kindergartener! D3 (5) can now also write her last name which is kind of a difficult one. The girls got some shots to help them get caught up. We don’t have the best insurance through my work so it has been difficult being compliant in this area.
