The flu season is not over yet, and you can’t just dismiss it. You should always be prepared for flu like symptoms, and there are certain methods that can help you feel prepared as you try to recover from labor.
If you’re going into labor, the first thing you should be doing is having a full physical exam. If your labor isn’t progressing well, then you should see a doctor as soon as possible. In many instances, it’s important that doctors are prepared for labor and have the proper equipment to help you recover as quickly as possible.
Many times I’ve had to have my labs drawn. When you have an abnormal lab test, you need to have a doctor in the room with you when you’re waiting for the results, and a nurse or other staff member should be available to answer questions.
I have had the experience of sitting there and having a nurse give me a series of instructions on how to take care of myself. To be honest, when I get to this point its not fun. It can be difficult to think of new things to do, or even think that I am actually feeling pain.
When I initially had my lab drawn, they gave me a prescription, then gave me a new lab. In addition, they told me how to treat myself if I had a problem. But in all of this, I was still only allowed to eat whatever food I wanted, and only had the ability to stay home for a period of time. I don’t have any pain, but I am terrified in the moment.
Because I’m such a huge fan of the “fear” in labor pain, I was excited when I was allowed to go home to eat something I wanted to eat. It kind of makes no sense, but that’s how it was.
I don’t know how this is supposed to help moms, but I was really hoping that it would. I still feel like I’m going to have a terrible time with my labor, which I guess is understandable, but still really scary.
I know exactly how you feel. You felt that way before you got your baby out of you, and when you have labor pain, you are more likely to go to the hospital for help. But the worst part is that you get more of the pain than you did before. This is when you need your husband or boyfriend or friend to be a part of your support because you will not be able to do it alone.
I’ve seen plenty of women who were in labor during my pregnancy with our second son, but all I remember is that all the other women had such nice, relaxing and sweet labor, no, I’m not just making this up. You will feel your labor pain and you will feel like you are about to die.
That is what I got from my doctor in my pre-pregnancy book of medical experiences, and I had a lot of those symptoms. One of the biggest symptoms was that I would get very sick before labor – I would get chills, feel very weak and dizzy the whole time, then have a light headache and a very light fever. The second biggest symptom was that I was really tired the entire time, it was almost as if I just had a full-body fever.
