Introducing…The Elves

Amelia

One month ago today I was 35 weeks pregnant and headed to the hospital for a non-stress test and ultrasound to check on “Baby A” due to concerns about restricted growth. At my appointment I was swollen like a balloon and had a blood pressure of 180/110 and “3+ protein” in my urine (in other words, I would have made a super easy USMLE question on classic presentation of pre-eclampsia).  I was sent straight to Labor […]

The Reply-All Button Ruins Lives

hate

I like to give people the benefit of the doubt and assume that in 2012 everyone who has an email address understands the difference between a “reply-all” button and a “reply” button. Unfortunately, I am discovering this is not the case and, as such, feel it is my moral duty to inform you all that reply-all can ruin your life (and annoy the snot out of me) when used incorrectly. So, what’s the difference? Reply: […]

A Little Red Change

Red Hair

Do you ever feel like you just need to make a change? Not a big change. I never get the urge to auction my life off on Ebay (all yours for one low price – a Mazda, stressful medical exams, & crazy dogs! BUY NOW)…that’s going too far…especially for someone who gets palpitations thinking about changing blog headers and profile pictures. Just little things. I’m pretty good at neglecting my hair – last year I went […]

Of Flaming Ovens & Paula Deen

Oops...

When the mood strikes I occasionally like to pretend I’m Paula Deen and dress up in a collared shirt, lay on the thick(er) Southern drawl and cook up a little storm in our kitchen…and by “cook up a little storm” I literally mean become a human baking cloud and rain down flour all over my clothing, floor and iPad recipe app while attempting to concoct something edible. Sometimes I get really lucky and produce pure […]

Trip To Betty Ford Institute In My Future

    I was three and she was 24 when we left – for years the alcohol and drugs precipitated the fighting, which brought on the feelings of guilt, which inevitably lead to more drinking. It was a vicious cycle that had to be broken and, no matter how much my he begged my mom not to leave with me, she knew we couldn’t stay.    He’s a good man, my dad – a smart, […]

First: Do No Harm…Even To Colleagues?

Like many others I recently read a New York Times Op Ed piece entitled “Don’t Quit This Day Job,” written by Dr. Karen Sibert and I was immediately taken aback by what she had to say. I wanted to write this several days ago, but as anyone who has spent half a second perusing my blog or Twitter knows, I’ve been severely busy losing my mind for the past several weeks.The first thing that struck me […]

About The Author

I’m an Ob/Gyn resident (that means I went to medical school to become a doctor) and now I'm working like a crazy person to learn my trade before I'm on my own in the wild. Once upon a time I birthed a couple of babies of my own, they're friggin' adorable twin toddlers now. 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 only started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit medicine and move to Hollywood, 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.
