Random Labor Memory
Anesthesiologist to the nurse, while preparing for my epidural: “Can you turn down the pitocin so I can insert the needle between contractions?
Nurse: “She doesn’t have a pitocin drip.”
Anesthesiologist: “Really? Wow. This is all natural?”
Anesthesiologist: “Wow. Um, well, we are going to have to do this during a contraction because they are just coming one right after another.”
Nurse: “And she is only 3 cm.”
NOTE TO SELF: It is never good to hear an anaesthesiologist say “wow.”
