I had a whole post composed -- it was the last in the "random moments from labor and birth" series, but I've somehow lost it. Part of me thinks that it is for the best, as it was probably the strangest to date, but that is still not stopping me from re-creating it.* * * * *
Here's the scene: The baby had been born and the OB was in a rush to get the placenta birthed too. He was pushing on my abdomen, rather roughly, in an effort to speed up the process. After a few minutes, he says loudly, "AAAAAAAND WE HAVE A PLACENTA BURGER!"
