That happened during your c-section?

Something that surprised me the second time was that my husband was the only guy in there. The attending OB, her two residents, all the nurses and the anesthesiologist were all women. Pretty cool, when you think about it.

I had a couple of things.

One was that they forgot to cath me, and I peed on the table! LOL I shared this in another post so I know that's a repeat for some. But they forgot to cath because I asked them to wait until after my spinal and that was out of sequence for my hospital. And so during the surgery, I heard one nurse say, "Ooohhh, she's peeing!" And the other nurse said, "Ooops! I forgot to cath her!" LOL


Another different thing was they had a high school student there that day job shadowing. And they were allowing her to observe a surgery that day. And so, they let her stand in the doorway and watch my c-section.

Well, the girl didn't last no time. She ended up backing out to the hallway, and popped her head in one time after the baby was out and looked at her, but that was it. LOL

I don't know what she saw, but it obviously freaked her out. But, then that got the doctor and the nurses talking about their first experiences in the O.R., and they were all talking about nearly passing out and such. I wasn't sure I wanted to hear all of that, so I started tuning them out at that point. LOL But, it was funny to me about the high school girl that obviously couldn't handle the scene. Might be a new method of teenage birth control to consider!! LOL
