Doctor, doctor, doctor

Well, today was filled with appointments.

First, my 12 week checkup went great. We got to see the baby, but didn't get any print outs - sorry grandmas. It wasn't that great a picture anyway. I think I'm spoiled by the nice machine that my College Station OB had.

Then, since we were in and out of my 9 am OB appt in under 15 minutes - whoo hoo!! I took advantage of having Kevin with me to go get my blood drawn. Another in and out in 15 minutes.

Finally, I had to take Caroline to the pediatrician. She had a 103.9 temp at 4 am this morning. It was an hour long ordeal including a strep test, urine sample, and drawing blood (from her thumb). Oh, and news flash - Caroline has never needed a band aid, so a band aid at the end of the poke is no consolation. She wanted me to take it off right away, but I made her keep it on until we got home.

Oh, and can I just whine that her pediatrician's office is in the professional building of North Cypress Hospital and I had to stroll her in the rain from the far lot. It's such a pain!! I guess I need to make myself a cash stash so I have tip for the "free valet" the next time it's raining.

Do you guys go to Dr. Ramsey?

Who is your pedi? And you are right, keep a couple of dollars in your glove box, because valet is a life-saver with a sick little one!!! (Though usually my car is so messy and I am too embarrassed to valet! haha.)

Congrats on Baby! :)
