Counting Down the Weeks

So it's been a while since my last blog but I have had a lot going on in the past couple of weeks. My doctor appointments are every two weeks now and I have been back and forth between Swansboro like every week. So here is a little recap of what's been going on in this Modern Mama's life.

So I had an appointment this week and it went really well. Skeletor is growing and moving and progressing along really well. I origninally had my appointment scheduled with the evil Dr. Vogel, but after hearing several horror stories from clients and my own previous experience with him I called and complained. The receptionist was very understanding. She must hear the same complaints from other patients. So my appointment this week and my following one are with different physicians who have a much nicer bed side manner. Unfortunately, Dr. Vogel could still possibly deliver my baby so I basically will have to pray that he will NOT be the delivering doctor.

Mama Mia and I started childbirth classes last week and will have one each week of November. Pretty interesting stuff even though I have been reading up on the "Baby Bible." At least I now know that it will cost $180 to circumcise my little man. Apparently Medicaid believes that this is a purely cosmetic procedure. I beg to differ, and I'm sure that any other man would agree with me. Now I know that in several countries and cultures they do not practice circumcisions, but there are reasons for doing them other than for looks. So, needless to say, my new tv fund is now "Skeletor's cosmetic surgery" fund.

I have so much to do in the next couple of weeks it's ridiculous. We have started working on the house, and hopefully will start painting this weekend. Dad has been working on a few things that needed to be patched up, but all in all I know we will get it done before the baby comes.

Finally, I think I have settled on a name for Skeletor. I figured since he looks less like a skeleton now, it's only fair I start calling him by his name. Now that's not to say it may or may not change when I see him. I was leaning towards Owen Kellum, but then I thought "Do I really want my child's initials to be O.K.?" I mean, that's just asking to be made fun of on the playground. So I'm thinking his name will be Ethan Kellum. However, I did just go see Due Date and Zach Galifinakis's character's name is Ethan. Maybe he will grow up to be a comedian.

  1. Girl, let me tell you... the one doctor who gave me a horrible experience before birth was the one who performed the c-section and I could not have asked for a better experience then. Maybe I was emotional because my son was almost here or because I couldn't feel below my neck and my guts were open and rearranged, I don't know but the way he talked to me and was good. Now that being said, I hope the evil dr is not your dr that day..that is too much stress on you.
    Also, it was @$250-300 when I got Grant circumcised just a little over 2 years happy to hear you get it cheaper. If you need anything, give me a shout.
