top three [09.13.2015]

stripes, green necklaces, and looking at the ground...some things never change ;)

  • Dizygotic twins are twins that are formed when two eggs are fertilized by two sperm during the same cycle. Monozygotic twins are formed when a zygote splits into two embryos. Conjoined twins are monozygotic twins that split too late.
  • 6,000 women reach menopause every single day. 
  • My sister Viktoria is a med student in Germany. She has the biggest heart, and is fundraising money to help a young patient she met during her urology rotation. If you have a few extra dollars in your paypal account, and want to find out how you can help, read her latest post about it here (it's at the bottom)

  • This week I got to close my first c-section! I'm lucky that our attendings are such great teachers, and allow us to practice these skills under their watchful eye. Now I just need to work on not being so nervous!
  • This is my last week on OB. I can't believe how fast this rotation has gone by! I spent probably 14 hours at the hospital most days and I would have stayed longer. I have really loved my experience there this month, and am so happy that I am on the service again in March. 
  • The temperatures dropped this weekend and it was amazing. We spent Saturday cuddled up on the couch, watching football, and eating mac and cheese. The best :)
