      I nursed all three of mine and each time it took real eforft in the beginning to make things work. I had also been told with my first how natural and easy it was and it was discouraging to realize that this is not always true. I had an honest friend who encouraged me telling me that it was hard in the beginning, but if I could just get through the first month it would be smooth sailing from then on. She was right and I really appreciated the encouragement.

    • That’s the best answer by far! Thanks for contributing.

    • Awesome you should think of something like that

      For me this is a relatively easy qitseuon, but has a pretty complex answer. The specialty I have actually looked forward to working with is OB/GYN. I find that the ability of a woman’s body to produce a child, endure the amount of abuse it takes during a pregnancy, and the amount of pain endured during delivery is amazing. The joy of being able to be present as life enters the world is truly one of the greatest moments in life. To me that would be the best possible option. I also would love working in the operating room with a surgeon. I have experienced the OR quite a few times, and have been on both sides of the table. I have to say I would love to work with any surgeon in the OR except for Orthopedics. The reason behind that is the surgery’s are pretty brutal when it comes to the skeletal system. Having been in the OR with an Orthopedic surgeon and seeing the use of the saws, hammers and other heavy equipment in order to perform the surgery just sends chills up my spine. I know that type of surgery is not for me. I think my favorite surgeries have to be that of the abdominal cavity. The specialties that I would least like to work for are few, and for simple reasons. Pediatrics is not a specialty for me since I have four children of my own. My Aunt is a neonatal nurse practitioner and I followed her in high school and saw the good, the bad, and the ugly so I can honestly say I could not emotionally handle that type of position. Podiatry is also an area I could not see myself working. The reason behind this is pretty silly, but here goes, I very much dislike other peoples feet especially if they are not well kept. I know in the medical field you will encounter feet on a daily basis, but I could not mainly work with feet on an everyday basis. My last specialty is Orthopedics for the reasons I noted above about the barbaric nature of the surgeries and treatments for the musculoskeletal system. Its just not for me.

      I had a rather hard time cionshog just one type of physician I would want to work for. So many of them fascinate me, and with me not really going into any medical field other than support, I never gave this any thought in the past. After reading the list, I am more favorable of working for a neonatologist. It is difficult to think about how neonatologist physicians sometimes have the most difficult job in the world, but I can only imagine how amazing it would be to be a part of saving a baby’s life. I had a coworker once whose baby was born at 36 weeks, and her baby had a lot of heart and lung problems. There were concerns about whether or not they would ever fully develop once she had him, but after many months in the NICU, and many scares that happened during it, the doctors were able to save him and he is now a very healthy 5 year old. It is because of that I have a higher interest in the neonatologist field.I hate to say which type of physician I would care less to work for, and it is because I worry that many will take it the wrong way. When I was 16, I used to help my mom at an assisted living home as a caregiver. We would get to work at 7:00 A.M. every morning to prepare breakfast for four of the elderly men and women that we were caring for. We would then make sure that all bedding was changed, rooms were cleaned, meals were prepared, and appointments were handled. We worked 12 hour days, and they were always grueling. The owner of the home made sure that everyone had their medicine and made it to their doctor appointments on time. However, she was more worried about getting paid for her services than actually helping the elderly. She would yell at them if they did something wrong, and even call them terrible names. My mom reported her and we both quit our job, but it has always left a sting in my heart since then. It is because of my experience with that situation that I do not think I could ever work for a gerontologist. I know that the situations would be much different, but ever since my experience with caring for elderly individuals it is very hard for me to think about assisting a physician in geriatrics because I worry that someone else might treat the elderly in the same way the owner of the home did. I am a firm believer that the elderly deserve the ultimate care and comfort when going through any treatment and aging in general, but I do not think I could ever work in that environment again.

      A psychiatrist is a phyasciin who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. I have a bachelor’s degree in the social services field. For several years, I have worked with children who have been diagnosed with mental disorders. It is upsetting to see children victimize at an early age and even more disturbing to see them as predators as early as 5 years of age, however knowing that I am doing my part to assist them in becoming functioning youths and adults is rewarding. The empathy, confidentiality and maturity of a medical assistant are definitely needed in this area. I enjoy establishing a rapport with these clients and helping them to find adequate coping skills to deal with their disorders, therefore I would like to work for a psychiatrist.I would not like to work for an emergency phyasciin for several reasons. I will explain a few. Patients who come to the emergency center typically have serious injuries or trauma. I would not like to have my mind constantly focused on who is coming thru the door and how sever the prognosis is. Knowing myself, I know that would be my focus and I would not be very productive. Also, in the emergency room the staff has to be prepared for anything, I would prefer an area that focuses on a particular specialty. Most importantly, I do not wish to see excessive amounts of blood loss on a regular basis. Actually, not even a minimal amount of blood loss on a regular basis. Giving my opinion and thoughts about this specialty, I would not be an effective employee.

      RP DDW..My point in a previous post was not meant to spruopt or criticize Perry, texas or any acion he was taking.My point was looking at Texas and comparing to other states in the general area indicated that many had problems when the use of the quality indicators was used as a measure of healthcare in a state. Mnay had nothing to write home about.My position on states accepting Medicaid money is based on the knowledge that almost every state in the union is reducing Medicaid reimbursement to physicians and doctors. If the physicians can not cover their costs, most will not accept those patients. Nor would any businessman provide services to a customer if they receive less money for the service than the cost of time and supplies they supplied.Somehow in America we have come to the conclusion that everyone in business has a right to make money except doctors and hospitals. They are expected to provide services at or below cost and that is an unsustainable position to hold.We also look at the bills and comment about how much that doctor charged. No one gives much thought that it also covers the receptionist salary, the nurses salary, office cost and malpractice cost that can be close to 6 figures.The federal government will continue to reduce reimbursement, forcing more cost onto the states. There is no way the feds can continue for years to fund Medicaid and Medicare at its current level. When that happens, all the congress has to do is write legislation that funds medicaid at 75% and not 90% for the added covered lives and the states are then holding the bag.Not until we have one payor system with all healthcare workers paid by the federal government so they do not worry about reimbursement will we have a system where everyone can receive equal care. No one will have Cadillac plan, no benefits through retirement programs, no federal programs, just everyone on a Medicare type system. And the same Medicare law that makes it a crime for a doctor or hospital to receive any payment over the deducible from a Medicare patient will also apply to this system. Whats good for the goose is good for the gander.

      I was the exact same height and wehigt as your daughter when I was born!! How crazy! I’m glad the induction wasn’t that bad. It is good to know just in case I do have to be induced. The main reason I don’t want to be induced is because I really want to have him without an epidural. I am wanting to do the hypnobirthing for this birth to get through the labor, and I’m afraid if I’m induced the pain will be to great to do the hypnobirthing.

  • Inna says:

    This could be interesting especially to fist time moms!

    • Shus says:

      my daughter had lost too much wehigt. She was not getting enough. And even appointment after appointment with the lactation consultant, she still was not getting enough milk. I started pumping which yielded little supply and left me feeling miserable because I could not provide for my child.I eventually realized that switching to formula was not an admission of defeat. It wasn’t even about me at all!! It was all for the health and well being of my daughter. I continued to pump for the first few months, but was eventually hospitalized with gallstones (a side effect of my pregnancy it turned out) and was forced to stop due to the medications I was taking. The little that I was able to produce dried up quickly and I had no other choice but to remain on formula.My daughter has never suffered a day for it either. She is healthy ( only 1 sick-child visit to her pediatrician in 3.5 years) and she is smart too.Good Luck to Holly Madison and I hope it does eventually get better for her, but if not, it is ok!

    • Adrian says:

      It wasn’t difficult for me, but it was ienrcdibly PAINFUL at first. Everything I had read and everything that I heard in my breastfeeding class led me to believe that it would only hurt IF I were doing it wrong. So, naturally, I was convinced that I was holding the baby incorrectly or that she didn’t have a good latch. Fortunately, because I had a four-day stay in the hospital due to a surprise c-section, I had round-the-clock access to lactation coachs who encouraged me and assured me that I was doing it correctly.

      Although my doctor told me it is very ulkniely to get pregnant after the first 6 months of giving birth it does happen. Maybe you would feel tired? take a pregnancy test

    • Batbuyn says:

      Thanks! Yes, they usually don’t give epirduals to people that have low blood pressure. They said I was just barely within normal range so they did it, but I had a bad effect anyway. It doesn’t mean it will for sure happen to you. Just talk to your doctor! And it wasn’t that bad, it just didn’t numb me, that was the bad part. lol. And my account got all messed up . My videos got deleted so I had to re-upload everything.

    • Feel better soon Trixie!Congrats to Hannah! Get plenty of rest, and take lots of pictures, because time really does fly by; and it does get easier soon to take care of twins! I can’t believe my twins are 3 1/2 now; seems like just yesterday I was wondering if I would ever see my feet again
