I am not denying they know more about parenting through experience or some of the parts of labor that I can not experience as a nurse that has not had children, but they argue me on the medical points, like a family friend argued with me that I am going to have a baby at advanced maternal age because I am almost 30. I tried to tell her it is not until 35...but she just acted like I was stupid,.

    And of course..."Dilaudid IV makes me really nauseated but only if it's pushed slow. The faster it's pushed, the less nauseated I become. I still need my Phenergen though."
    Well, per a few of my pts, if you put the Dilaudid in as an IVPB rather than push, their MD told them that it metabolizes in their arm and never makes it to the rest of the body.

    And if they throw up within an hour of IV narcotics, they vomit out the drug and need a repeat dose.

    I must have missed that day in AP
