Delivery Room experience --- whoa mama

First time vag delivery experience. whoa nelly... But it was such an awesome experience and I felt honored to be apart of it. My pt-mom was amazing :)

I quickly got over the whoa-is-that-what-I-think-it-is.. Everything happens so quickly.

Actually it felt like I'm always saying "whoa" (in my head of course) through out labor and delivery. I'm starting to sound like Joey from the show Blossoms.

I also got my first real time IV start --  with a freaking godzilla of needles.. 18-freaking-gauze needles are never fun.. for the pt or the student nurse.

I wasn't successful.. real bummer about that. I think they're were about to induce her, so I didn't even got a second try.  That's a snip in my ever so large ego.


I suck.

Not sure if I wanted to do anything OB for my preceptorship this summer( that is if I pass Med-surg in 2nd semester). But we'll see.. 

I definately like post-surgery/recovery a lot better.

In other weightloss news... my weight blows and I didn't get to workout yesterday. I'll try to make it up today and get a good workout

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week :)


  1. IVs are so hard at first. Of course I've only done them on animals which doesn't help because you can't really tell them to be still. My first one was a carotid cannula so at least it was a nice big vein but I still remember how hard it seemed palpating the vein and trying to get the angle right.

  2. I'm a hard stick so you'd hate me!

  3. LOL for the life of me, I thought I had the vein, but when I flushed the darn thing, it bubbled, so boo...:)

  4. I'm so glad you are still blogging! I came back from my break and was wondering where you went!

    Good luck with everything!

  5. Thanks Girl! :) I sorta backslided when I went missing from 3fc lol Trying to get back into the groove of things :)
