The women in my extended family have a tradition of getting together, known as the “Chapman Women Hoodalihoo”, about once a month and having dinner. Well my Aunt Jen decided to spice things up a bit and […]

So yesterday I job shadowed with my infertility specialist-and it went exceptionally well! From the beginning the doctor introduced me to the patients as “our new nurse practitioner”. They want me to manage the nursing staff, and then after training I will get to manage patient care including procedures. It sounds like its going to […]

Unfortunately, because of my illness this week I wasn’t able to job shadow on Thursday, so I’m going on Monday instead. I was thinking back to the last time I was this sick, and it was seven years ago. I was in college on Christmas break-which ironically was after a very stressful time. So my […]

Well, as you may have read in my last post I have been feeling like I needed to make a job change, and have been in the process of pursuing other opportunities. The doctor I have been working with has been increasingly more difficult, and was consistently yelling at me for asking questions. Well yesterday […]

My last post’s title was Life is always changing-but I never expanded on that, so here it goes. I have been working as a family nurse practitioner for the past 6 months, and lately I’m realizing that my current job isn’t a great fit. I enjoy what I’m doing, however the doctor I work with […]

So the past few days have been better. I’ve given myself time to cry and work through the process. This may sound silly to some, but I’m even working on a scrapbook for the baby. I was realizing that I really don’t have anything for this baby, so I thought what would I do normally-a […]

I must admit that yesterday was a difficult day. I realized that I had been busying myself the past 2 days, and I finally slowed down. I was taking Christmas decorations down, and somehow found myself extremely emotional. I’m sure there is some correlation between acknowledging Christmas as over and simultaneously acknowledging this pregnancy as […]
