He wasnt my dr, I was three weeks early and my dr. was picking up his kids from college. My dr. would have been there on time, had he been there at all. Damn doctors.

But the on call doctor's reason for being late? He couldn't find his car keys.

If it ever happens again (hopefully not), I will just give the nurses a big F-U and push the baby out.

With my first labor I didn't feel a huge urge to push, so I may have been able to hold off for a little bit (an hour seems like FOREVER though), but with this labor I felt my body pushing, without me even telling it to, so those nurses would have been outta luck.

I had the same thing happen when I had ds. He started coming out as soon as they laid me down from my intrathecal. They literally pushed against him to hold him in until the doc could come back up and get fully dressed. No wonder I hemorrhaged so badly...
