500th post & pediatrician

Here's my 500th post. 3 1/2 years of blogging later and I finally might be a mom in a few weeks. It's pretty weird to imagine.

We went to visit a pediatrician today. We liked him. He was very soft spoken and laid back. The nurse in the waiting room asked noted I must not be due for a while (we were there without a child) and so I had to explain.

The doctor said he sees a lot of adopted babies. We reviewed the health history of the birth parents and he said that unless the expectant mom was drinking heavily or doing hard core drugs, then there was really no significance in it. He thought things sounded good.

We picked out some crib sheets that we like and think will go with the room. My mom is going to buy them for us.

We have to move the bed and a bookshelf out of that room. We have to organize the garage a bit because it's too crowded in there.

I'm leaving for the Boca area on Sunday for work until Tuesday. I work Wednesday through Friday. Saturday we're going on vacation to Vermont away from cell phone coverage and internet. We plan to read and knit a lot. Well, I plan to knit. T is just going to read. And walk and hike and sleep and generally laze about. I'm looking forward to it very much.

When we come back it will be August 8. That leaves about a week until the due date.

Also regarding your pediatrician.. Call and find out how long it takes to get an appointment for a wellness check (how far out they schedule) and how long it takes to get sick appointments.

I had an old pediatrician that I LOVED but the office staff was such a nightmare that I changed.

Best of luck!! Enjoy your vacation..
