Why OBs can't keep to a schedule:

Monday - multiple people walk in to the hospital in labor.

Tuesday - crash c-section in the middle of the day

Wednesday - my induction scheduled for Friday shows up (cool! don't have anything on Friday now!)

Friday - woke up thinking I could wander in at any point, since I don't have office hours today but nooooooooooo. Cross-coverage texts me : primp at 7 cm.


I counted - only 5 left due for this month.

You guys likely have the most unpredictable call and office hours out there. That sucks.

OB guy at my med-school (in the mid-west) told me he needed two cars to take call. A Jeep for Winter and a Corvette for Summer.

Yeah, tell me about it. Sometimes I wonder what the hell I was thinking.
