Call Your Doctor!

This morning I called my doctor and set up my annual physical. I've been in and out with babies and colds, but it's been 3 years since my last complete physical. I am not exactly looking forward to it, but I know it's very important, especially as I age. It also serves as a good goal for me - to be a healthier me by October!

How long has it been since you had a physical?

Physical? What's a physical? HA! Well, I'm in the same boat with you - I've been in and out with baby visits, and then I go monthly to one of my specialists and get lab work every 4 weeks, so does that count? Otherwise, it's been probably 3 years!

The thing I really need is a pap test - I refused one in the last pregnancy as the hormones can skew the results, so I need to get in there!! :-)

I had that kind of physical just about a month ago. I've been in & out of the general practice dr's office a lot over the last 9 months (tonsilitis, stomach virus x2, strep throat x2). Lots of blood work every time b/c they thought there was a serious problem but it seems that my immune system just doesn't stand up well to my crammed schedule:-) High five to you though for taking good care of yourself. It's important to keep track of things! Let's all pray for a healthy, bug-free fall!

8 months or so. I love to get blood work and see what it says!

I go every April because that is my birthday month, I also set up my mammogram and my dentist appointments the same week. That way I don't forget

I"ve only seen an OB doc for the past 8 years of my life. (no family doctor yet- bad Kara!)

And before that... no clue.
