Julia´s birthstory

I went to my weekly appt. last monday, and basically complained to Dr. Uncle about all the stuff I had been whining to you… He laughed at me, and after all the routine controls told me that he thought the baby was coming "any day now".
We went to pick up Fede at my parents, and then headed home to have dinner.
At 2:30am I woke up because I needed to pee. As soon as I sat on the toilet, I felt my water breaking (you will have to admit that was convenient!). So I called Mati, and went to sit on the couch while he gathered all our bags and Fede who was completely asleep.
We left Fede at my MIL's and went to the hospital. On the way I called Dr. Uncle, who unfortunately was on call that night at another hospital, so he said to go to the hospital, labor with the m/w and that they would call him when things were closer to delivery.
Just like last time, they checked me and confirmed that my water was broken, I was dilated 3 cm,

Christine- It was the same hospital, it was even the same m/w. I think that's what was so disappointing… she had been so nice to me last time, and I couldn't believe she practically ignored me this time. As for typical of argentinean hospitals…. I´ve heard lots of similar stories but always about public hospitals… this was a private clinic, and the attention is usually a lot better.

You did an amazing job, Mari! I'm so sad the way they treated you - you have every right to feel upset. Laboring women need to vocalize and deal with pain in many different ways! It is not something to be ashamed of. I'm so sorry they made you feel so awful. :( On a happier note, YAY to Julia being here and being healthy!!! Post some pictures, mama!!!

Grr, I hate that staff for you!! How dare they make snide remarks and scold you. Give those people some customer service classes.
