So how DID it go?

Got called when as I was rinsing the shampoo out yesterday for a drive-through (aka someone who walks in complete and ready to push).

Delivered her, looked at my list. I had 5 to round upon. As I'm sitting at the nurse's station, someone comes up and says "I think my water broke." I look up and recognize her as one of mine.

"Please put her in a room where I don't have to walk far."

She was right and dilated to 6. We kept her.

Then I had an induction due to postdates from the other practice (he's out of town).

Then an observation from yesterday...her urine labs came back. Another induction for pre-eclampsia at term.

Then the office called. I had them bring in someone...IUGR, oligo, hypertension, preterm. She's getting steroids and mag until I deliver her today.

Then the psych ward called with a GYN consult. Ohdeargodshootmenow!

And I stuck myself with a FSE while removing it from the head after delivery. Cut deep enough to draw blood. Sonofabitch, got to report it and get labs drawn.

Got home around 8:30 pm.

I missed this?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Yeah, that's how I feel after some time off, for any reason.

I missed this?!?

It's a living.

Hope you're okay.

So what if you have to do a C section, who delivers the babies while you do that?

Ahhh yes, of course you missed it! :-)

Hopefully there is no one actively laboring while I'm in the section room.
