I must start this off by simply stating Hooray For Nurses! I have yet to encounter a doctor here who isn't a miserable, apathetic, and uncaring git (and only had two good ones in Canada in the 30ish years I lived there). I can say, without exaggeration, that every single nurse I've seen here has been excellent. They spend as much time with you as you need, offer friendly and reassuring advice, and actually look like they give a shit when you're talking to them. They are severely underpaid and yet they maintain this fantastic level of care. Hooray for nurses, I say.

I went to see the nurse yesterday afternoon to chat about various prepregnancy issues I was wondering about. On Monday morning, I'm getting tested to see if I'm immune to rubella (my Mom said I had a rubella shot when I was a toddler, but they tend to inoculate girls again at around 10-11 years old here). Otherwise, I seem to be doing all that I can in preparation.

Now to get back to the diet. After our big Valentine's dinner, of course.
