I've been collecting my writings from years gone by as I find them. Each time I move - now 5 times in the last 3 years - I find more scraps, loose sheets, etc. with my thoughts from various times in my life. I've decided to copy as many of them as I can here to try and keep from losing them again, and to share with the world. Please feel free to comment as thoughts occur to you. Either send them to trekker9er@yahoo.com or use the comment links here. Thanks, and Enjoy!

 Doctor Doctor

I'm heading out in not too long for MA for Pat and Jen's wedding this weekend. Got a 1am train to catch in Toledo, OH. And a ton of stuff to do before I leave for that!

But I thought I'd leave y'all with an anecdote to read while I'm sans internet for 16 or so hours. (Pity me? Lol, nah. I'm looking forward to a nice relaxing ride through the US country side.)

So I had my yearly doctor's appointment on Monday. Not the physical, the other one. While there I told the doctor I had some questions. I told her I am seriously considering having a baby next year, and all my questions were relating to that.

On a side note, this is when I found out my PCP is not also a OBGYN, which surprises me since I'm there for a Pap!

Anyways, my doctor looks at me and goes "You want a kid?" I say yes. She asks me how old I am. I tell her 26. As she writes that on my chart, she tells me I'm still young. Then starts asking why I want a baby and whatnot. I give a couple of my reasons, the first ones that come to mind (about seeing my parents now, and seeing my GodMom now, and about having wanted one since I was about 14 - you know). She says to me that she has four children and... then she just stopped talking and moved on to other stuff. After all the doctor stuff was done, literally as she is walking out the door she says over her shoulder to me to think more about having a kid.


It was so weird! My doctor thinks I shouldn't have a baby next year. Good thing she wouldn't be my OBGYN.

But it has got me thinking again about how hard it will be if I have a baby alone. Still... I'm so close to being in a good financial place for having a child. I could probably even do it now. Though I'd rather save up some money for AI or adoption, depending on what I choose, as either will potentially cost thousands. And I'm in a good place emotionally now. I'd much prefer if Mom was around, but I guess I can't have everything, can I.
