Yesterday was my first time assisting in a delivery, but I didn't really do much, so I'm not gonna count that was my first one. Today I got to deliver my first placenta. IT WAS AWESOME. Lol... I don't know who gets excited about delivering a placenta, but I do. Anyway, I'm still loving OB/Gyn. I'm working on learning as much as I can so I will be a rockstar intern, working on my confidence in taking H&Ps and treating patients, and trying my hardest to balance being proactive with not getting in the way too much. All the interns and residents just seem to know what they are doing, and I can't wait until I get to that point. I think people are beginning to warm up to me :). It's just hard because when I get intimidated, I get very quiet and shy, so sometimes I come off stand-offish.
Something I realized about OB/Gyns that makes me giggle is how superstitious they are. They are always knocking on wood and saying, "Don't jinx me!!!" I think it's funny.
