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?”

Me: “Yeeeeees.”

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.”
