...Actually, they did an extremely crappy job, to the extent that I actually screamed...and I hadn't screamed yet during the long posterior labor. The IV also infiltrated and my hand and arm were disgustingly bruised for at least a week afterwards. I assume the nurse hit a nerve, because I have tingling/numbness in a certain area of my arm and wrist to this day.
|I don't know if this happened because it actually is hard to get an IV into a laboring woman--has anyone else heard this?-- or because hospital staff are incompetent. My MW was visibly pissed at the nurse...|
