    Oh my goodness how horrible!

    With my first c-section I could feel what they were doing. Not nearly as much as your wife could, but I felt pain. They actually tested me out to see what exactly I could feel (just pressure, vs. pain) and it was clear I felt the cutting, not just the touching. They wanted to stop and give me more anesthesia, but I had been in labor for nearly 3 days by then (didn't work, which is why I ended up with surgery) and I just wanted TO BE DONE with it all and I said no, finish. It got easier to take once the baby was out.

    Your wife is amazing. I'm not sure I could have withstood much more than I did, and I know I wasn't feeling the degree your wife was feeling!

    she is so tough, that I did not know that she was in that much pain, they only let me come in at the moment of birth, so I thought at first she was crying because of happiness for the baby.. She told me later that she put her strongest face on and tried not to cry so I would not worry. I did not find out the severity of everything until later.. they just tried to focus me on the baby.. and with my spanish not being perfect, I do not always understand technical or medical spanish, and there is sometimes miscommunication because I speak gringo, white people spanish.. so that definitely made it scarier.

    That is amazing how you toughed it out for so long.. mothers are incredible.. I definitely have more respect for what they go through to bring children into this world.. my wife was hospitalized three times in pregnancy.. but she never complained.. its incredible the sacrifice. some women get lucky and have easy pregnancies.. my wife has almost died in all three of her childbirths .. I doubt the whole third world country helps.. but I had her in one of the best clinics in the country a block from the American Embassy..

    How hard for you dads!

    I know my (now) ex didn't want to leave me once our daughter was out. He had been there the entire labor and for the surgery and let me wreck his hand with the pain (first fourty-two hours of labor I was unmedicated, after that much time I could not keep doing labor without painkillers...). After baby was out I had to convince him it was fine to leave me and go be with her. I can't imagine how hard it is to be torn in two like that between priorities.

    I know at that moment, while I was concerned for my daughter, I mostly felt relief that it was FINALLY FREAKING OVER and all I wanted the to do was finish sewing me up and let me sleep.

    Then I developed pre-eclampsia (yep, after the baby was out, awesome) but that is a whole different ugly story, that ended up ok!

    I got an email from this requester after he overturned the rejection because I said that the pay was unfair....

    So if I spent the LEAST time the pay must have really sucked for some poor turkers!

    They seemed to really want to get me out.. I was making them nervous I think.. I think they were worried about the consequences of killing an Americans wife .. considering the hospital has some extremely difficult international accreditation from a US organization that they just received like a year ago. The doctor was yelling at assistants, that's when I knew it was not going well.

    I'm always so so confused when this happens to average or slower paced workers. Like you don't think something's up when someone is taking 10~20 minutes to do your 3 minute survey?

    Lmao, I walked in on Wuzzy eating. When he realized I was there he got excited, looked at me and meowed, and three little kibbles of food came flying out.

    That's a rough one to do in one go. The first couple sections are hell, but the rest isn't as terrible. You can switch back and forth from mobile, too, for some variety. Good luck!
