Lives of Doctor Wives: Hello From The Wife Of A Practicing OB/GYN!

Hello From The Wife Of A Practicing OB/GYN!

Hi! My name is Amanda, and I'm married to an OB/GYN. He started practicing medicine about six months ago, so we're both new to the idea that he's actually "working" (though, I know that residency is a very BIG job!). We moved back to our home state of Indiana after my husband finished his four year OB/GYN residency in Columbus, Ohio. Prior to residency, he went to medical school at Indiana University. We met each other WAY back in 1996 in undergrad at Marian College (soon to be Marian University) in Indianapolis, Indiana. He studied biology/chemistry, and I studied early childhood education. We got married in 2001, in between his first and second years of medical school. Although I tried to teach after college, we moved around a lot, so I ended up leaving the field and working as a receptionist while he studied in medical school and, later, while he did his residency. In August of 2006 and at the beginning of his third year, I gave birth to our son. My husband started moonlighting at another hospital while doing his residency, so I could become a stay-at-home-mom. We moved to our current home town last July, and he started practicing as a general OB/GYN at the beginning of August. It's been a wild ride, full of ups and downs, but, as I say on my new blog "Ask The OB's Wife!", it's all been worth it! I'm so happy to have found this great blog. I understand what most of you are going through right now, and I hope I can help answer any questions you may have, especially about residency, since it's still so fresh in our minds!
Good luck to you and your spouses, and I can't wait to get to know all of you!

I'm so excited that you have joined us! My hubby is just about to start his OB/GYN residency this July and it will be so nice to hear from someone who has been there and that there is light at the end of the tunnel! I'm going to go check out your blog now!!!

So was there a light at the end of the tunnel? My aunt's an OB and she spends so much time working (I know she makes bank, but I'd prefer my hubby to money). Does he have more time for you and your family? I like the blog (and the disclaimers)!

Ahh! Another Hoosier!! :)

R and I are both from different parts of the state.

And Columbus for residency? I would love that - so many fashion jobs there!

Anyway, nice to meet you!
