So far, the hardest thing about interviewing for residencies was finding appropriate business attire that fits and looks good when you are 2 weeks postpartum. Yes, I went on an interview the day Curtis turned 2 weeks old. Thank goodness I have had practice leaving a newborn in another's care for an entire day, or that could have been a disaster!

After wrapping up the interview season, I will then rank my top residency choices. One of those programs will hopefully rank me. And then, in March, I will find out which programs match my rankings, thus revealing to me my location for the next 4 years. I cannot wait!

I have re-taken my board exam, and am awaiting scores for the next month or so. At this point, I just have 4 more rotations, then graduation in May. The end is totally, and completely in sight (after 5 years). A lot of hard work has gone into this degree, and I know it's worth it. I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of my OB/gyn rotations. I am ecstatic that is my future career, and overwhelmed by the positive response I have received from family and friends. I would love to deliver all your babies!

Even after accomplishing all of this, I still just take things a day at a time.
