I loved the report I received from the off-going nurse my last shift. The patient was stabilizing after having preterm contractions at 24 week with twins.
“The babies are surprisingly easy to find,” my colleague said encouragingly.
“The first heartbeat can be found just above the butterfly tattoo on her right lower abdomen. And, the second is just north of the belly button ring.”
What a crack up.
But you know…twins can be hard to find. It was actually really helpful to have those great landmarks.
I can’t wait ‘til it's popular to tattoo entire grids on the tummy. You know, like the old Battleship game.
I’d love to hear that report.
“You’ll find the first twin at B-2 and the second at G-6.”
I’ll actually look forward to multiples!
(No offense mommies. But, oh my, those sweet little twins, trips, quads, quints…are often so hard to monitor!)
