day one of obstetrics and i’ve had a barrage of emotions run through me.
first: panic, because i hadn’t finished studying about today’s presentation topics. after that came bewilderment, at all the work we had to do. third: anticipation, because obstetrics seems pretty exciting and i wanna leap right in and kena marah straight away. then i felt lost during my first night at the wards since i had absolutely NO IDEA what to do. and finally, satisfaction…because i managed to clerk (incompletely, no doubt) a patient with gestational diabetes mellitus and watched 2 deliveries tonight.
next time, i’ll assist. tomorrow, i’ll clerk at least 3 more patients.
i guess stress and pressure is good for me, after all!
