Twin Tuesday: Breastfeeding Twins

2013-03-30 14.21.36

We’re about to get real up in here and talk about something I think is so important to talk about publicly. So, if me talking about nursing my babies ain’t your thing feel free to exit now…otherwise, prepare yourself to get a tiny bit little personal. (P.S. Mind On Medicine could be abbreviated to M.O.M. Can we all take a moment to relish how ridiculously fitting that is?) I knew when I was pregnant that I wanted […]

Twin Tuesday – Questions People Ask Twin Moms

2013-01-11 15.47.30

From the moment you find out you’re having a baby people have questions – is it a boy or a girl, what are you naming it, how are you feeling? When they find out you’re having multiples, the questions increase exponentially by the number of babies gestating in your uterus. And, when those babies finally arrive and you take them out and about, people have even more questions! As A Twin Mom, Always Be Prepared […]

Medicine, Marriage, Family

Elves

I remember when I was considering applying to medical school being terrified that becoming a doctor meant I’d never be able to have a family. Every Google search led to horror stories about divorce, blogs berating physicians that chose to have children, and forums full of miserable doctors. I almost chose a different career path purely out of fear. As I’ve mentioned before I strive to make this blog a balance of medicine and other […]

Anatomy Scan

BabyB

21 weeks + 2 days Today we had our “anatomy scan” where they basically do a detailed ultrasound of the baby to look for various fetal anomalies or malformations. We got great news – everything is looking perfectly on track for both Little Elves*! Basically each appears to have a three vessel umbilical cord (which mean two arteries and one vein per cord), two kidneys, a cute little round stomach, a four-chambered heart with good outflow tracts, […]

About The Author

I'm an ObGyn. I started this blog as a medical student (some would call that doctor school) and now I'm working as an Ob/Gyn, which is seriously the coolest job ever. I'm a twin mom and recently added a baby brudder to the mix. My life story through November 2010 can be viewed here. The events in the many years following can be summed up as wedding bells, books, exams, babies, and doctoring. I started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit medicine and move to Hollywood, but that hasn't happened...so if you wouldn't take medical advice from Angelina Jolie, you shouldn't take it from me. I may not even be a real person. In fact, I'm probably a spambot. Or possibly a 15 yo boy blogging from a dingy basement. If you're really interested you can read more about me here. If you have any questions or want to guest post contact me.
