An hour into the ordeal, Liz, the woman having the never-ending O, tried to get rid of it. She jumped up and down, took antihistamines, and drank a glass of wineÃ¢â‚¬”but nothing worked. After the second hour, her boyfriend took her to the hospital. Hoping to avoid embarrassment and receive immediate care, Liz told a nurse she was in laborÃ¢â‚¬”and then revealed her real issue behind closed doors.
