I love technology - sometimes!

Today, I do.
My OB-GYN (in a hospital world, pronouce it "obee-jenn" so as not to say every letter...now you're in the 'know')...anyway, my obgyn's office is now 5 star in my eyes.

I get on their website, put in my username and password, and voila: instant access to all of my labwork, all of my reports, all of my appointments. From a nurse's perspective, this is awesome! I have the same access to my chart that my doc has - no waiting to hear from them. I can just look myself!

For instance, today I saw that my beta HCG level is 134729. The normal being less than 5, I am definately prego. I also saw I am slightly anemic (which I often am), but now I can start 'beefing' up on my red meats - so to speak. And my blood type is O positive - somehow I never knew this. This may mean nothing to you, but its pretty cool to me!

okay, dorky healthcare rave over.
much love

That is really cool. I am very interested in blood type stuff. I think it's the Chinese culture...maybe Japanese, they tell you personality types based on your blood type. Google it if you're ever bored.

It's so important to connect with and love your OB-GYN...this is an important time in your life!

Glad you are feeling better these days. That video you shared a few days ago was amazing (just got a chance to watch it).

I also agree with Barby "where are you hiding a 12 week lemon inside of you?" :) Little Miss Tiny! You are going to be the cutest pregnant thing ever!
