Thanks for the laughs girls! My face and belly are sore now. I know it shouldn't be funny- not like I haven't been through it all myself but I will have to add a few new ones:-
1. My sister was invited to bub No. 2's birth and I was so mad at her for telling my husband dirty jokes in the car en route to hospital while I am in extreme labour pain! In addition to that- I gave her my camera. It was the old type- analogue- so you couldn't see the photos B4 the chemist develops them.
So, imagine my horror when I picked up awful photos from our friendly,local chemist, of exhausted me holding our screaming newborn in the labour ward, with my gown up around my navel, EVERYTHING showing and blood to boot. I had to crop all the photos to put them in the baby album! I nearly died of embarrassment and was too scared to face the chemist ever again!
2. Having an general anaesthetic that afterwards made me vomit all night, and worst of all, the anaesthetic didn't wear off my bladder. So I could not pee and I was busting!! I actually begged for a catherta and if that's not bad enough, 2 nurses couldn't find my 'wee hole' to insert the catherta even after several tries. They were going to have to call the doctor, they said. That was the absolute worst, I think. I was so desperate to wee I thought my bladder would literally burst. I have been terrified of having a general ever since!
