Why the OB lifestyle sucks

Just finished a delivery...and can't fall back to sleep. It's 3:26 am. It was a good delivery, just at the wee hours of the night, when most normal people are out cold.

I admit, I have very poor sleeping habits. I have the day off, so I'll end up napping this afternoon. Hopefully that will reset the sleep clock.

And yet, I still love my job...

I totally know the feeling of which you speak. There is such an "adrenaline rush" after a good delivery. It takes me a good, long time to decompress after a birth and turn off my brain.

I never did need much sleep, so I suppose I am wired for this line of work. And, let's face it, if we weren't adrenaline junkies, would we really be in this field of medicine?? Hope you have a great weekend!

My problem is that I do need a lot of sleep...not so smart of me to pick this line of work.


Can't be any other type of doc though...this is waaaaaaaaaay too much fun
