In stark contrast
to my hideous shift on Sunday, yesterday was pretty good - a few of my friends were working, we had sweets AND I found a little happy baby inside a woman's belly. She was having some pains and the obstetrics doctor said if I could see hear the heartbeat, I could reassure her. We have an ultrasound in the ED but it's basic and we don't usually use it for baby scans!! I was very wary of my poor ultrasound skills but I found it!! Heartbeat, and little head, arms and legs, all wiggling about. I'm not sure who was more emotional - me or Mum & Dad!!! It reminded me of why I love my job, which I really needed after Sunday (which I do not want to share the details of on line sorry).
