why yes i do, lol#You, sir, live a complicated life. Sorry for the off topic comment but that begged for one! Oh, and congratulations on the birth of your child.
Wishful thinking but no my Mrs and Girlfriend are the same person, most people in the UK refer to their girlfriends as their Mrs', and to answer your question about the labour.....it's The UK for ya, the NHS is a great thing because it's free health care but unfortunately it can mean that doctors/midwife's aren't always as clued up as they should be, here's the full labour story:Just out of curiosity, are your "Mrs" and your "girlfriend" the same person or 2 different people?
But perhaps more importantly, why would the attending physicians allow a labor to continue for 44 hours before electing to use Caesarian section? You'd have thought a day and a smidge would be enough to convince them. I'm jus' sayin'.
After 44 hours of labour, including the waters being popped, 4 CTG's, 2 ECG's, lots of gas & air, a tenns machine (which the midwife *accidentally* turned Upton full power, instead of off when removing the pads, just before the epidural might I add), 3 different clips on the baby's head because none of the clips would work (apparently because the NHS had ordered a load of cheap cables due to Britian's spending cut's), the hormone drip to speed up the labour (because labour wasn't progressing naturally) and then eventually a c-section to get the baby out, my little man was finally born at 8.2lbs.
Also about 5days after the c-section a midwife came round to remove the external stitch, by putting pressure on the wound and pulling the stitch out, but the nylon came out 2cm and then snapped, leaving 70% of the stitch in my Mrs' stomach, which got infected, and the out of hours clinic prescribed her antibiotics containing amoxicillin.......which She is highly allergic to (goes into fits when she has it) so I started to loose my cool when I found that out. Anyway a consultant told us that we needed to go to the JR (local NHS hospital) to see if they could locate any of the remaining stitch and remove it as it could cause problems/irritation so we went up there last night, they had a poke around but couldn't not locate the stitch, then a senior doctor came in a said to leave the stitch in as it WOULDN'T do any harm and if my girlfriend had another c-section they would remove it then.........lol, Don't yea just love the NHS!!!!
