OMG these are so funny! i am getting very weird looks from the two male office members i work with trying not to burst out loud with laughter!
ive got a couple...
with the twins i had a planned c-section but afterwards the funnies came. it had been about 4 hours after having them and the midwife came to check on me.
MW: can you feel your legs yet?
ME (ever so proudly) : yep, i can move them and everything (proceeded to wobble my legs like jelly) SEE!!!!
MW: oh well thats not really movement is it its just shaking them.
ME: why do you hate me so much?
then at about 10pm (12 hours after having the twins) i buzzed the nurse and told her that i really really needed to pee. she said that i shouldnt feel like that as i was still cathaterised.
she toddled off but i still felt like i had this huge urge to pee. buzzed her back where she said well i can take the cathater out incase its irritation from this giving you the urge to pee but i can garuntee you dont need to actually pee.
so she took it out and off she went. with that i decided to relax knowing i needed to pee. and there the whole contents of my bladder went everywhere. called her back and said see told you i needed to pee!!! she then proceeded to give me a dose of morphine so i could get out of bed so she could clear up all red faced.
when i was labouring loosing my angel i loved loved loved the gas and air, i kept telling the doctor all this information i had read online, also telling him what his job was to do, i just could not stop talking. i also kept giggling to myself as i kept talking to myself. i loved it.
they gave me pethidine which i will never have again, mum and dad had just gone downstairs to get themselves some breakfast when it kicked in and it made me feel scuicidal! i kept trying to jump out the tiny 4 inch gap in the open window, and then walking round the room just screaming Oh My God over and over again. then when mum and dad came back i jumped on the bed and sat there as if nothing had happened!
I was in early labour for a couple of days, on off contractions, and i made FOB drive me to mcdonalds, for breakfast, i had a really strong contraction and started wailing in the passenger seat, the poor man in the drive thru didnt know what the hell was going on.
Another one, when i was at the pushing stage, FOB had a bottle of diet coke, and everytime i had a contraction id shout at him 'coke!' drink some then scream at him 'i fucking hate diet coke!' I also kept swearing at the midwives and then saying 'im so sorry i dont usualy swear, do you hate me now?' Oh and i kept pressing the buzzer every time the midwife left the room to ask her how much longer she thought it would be haha. I so wish i had it all recorded!x
my midwife came to check me when i was in labour and she said "lets go check your cervix" and i cried "but i havn't shaved" She said "it's ok, aslong as i don't have to whack through with a axe and a hachet it'll be fine"
Also have a video of me talking to penguins i was so out of it and singing about jetplanes
The gas and air made me talk and talk and i remember telling my midwife all about bnb
I find it strange reading about how crazy some of get on gas and air?!?! I was still holding normal conversations between ctx and while still feeling buzzy on the stuff.
With my first the pethadine did make me a little more silly but nothing mad just smiley and slurry for a little bit.
The morning after my EMCS I had morphine and again holding normal conversations.
So dont worry ladies not all painkillers make you go mental!
As for me hmmm with my 1st at the BC hubby left the room while I was having a VE, I sat up after had a huge ctx and felt sick so the MW handed my cardboard bowls...I filled 3 and then as I was finishing up a mouthful or 2 in the 4th bowl hubby strolls back in...MW says to him, 'she's just been a little sick but she's ok' I look at him, he looks at me and gives me that awwww sorry look (thinking it was only the bowl I was holding) then I catch the shock and revulsion on hi9s face when he clocks th3 other bowls brimming with my sick. Bless him.
With my 2nd I was hoping to HBAC but we transferred and the mean ambulance guys made me walk to the ambulance (I was 10cm and bleeding heavily my vans got ruined!) when we got close to the hospital I remember telling them I AM NOT WALKING ANYWHERE WHEN WE GET THERE!!!! 'its alright love we'll wheel you in on the bed' GOOD, I CANT WALK, I WONT WALK!!
Bless them the ambulance guys were lovely really -if any of you get transferred and the guys are good please write to their area office, letters of thanks are kept on their permanent record.
Really an after labor story, but one of my nurses- Nurse Chan, with a very heavy accent kept wanting to "clean my poo poo spot" after labor. I kept telling her I didn't poop. Then she kept chanting "You need pee, you call me!! You need pee, you call me!!"
Finally I had to call her for help to pee (had epidural) and she still insisted on "cleaning my poo poo spot" (her words exactly)
