Chapter 206 Feel the Pulse of Pregnancy in the Hospital!
In the next early morning, Fang Qiu came to the school gate at the appointed time and got on Xu Miaolin’s car.
“Which hospital are we going to?” asked Fang Qiu on the car.
“Now I have been fired by the First Affiliated Hospital and Chen Yinsheng was obviously directed against me. It is obviously impossible to study in the First Affiliated Hospital.”
“Moreover, we have made such huge waves in the challenge thing. Chen Yinsheng must be furious.”
Xu Miaolin smiled slightly as if he had known Fang Qiu’s worries and said, “I have talked to the leaders of Central Hospital in advance. We can go there directly.”
“Are we going to the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology?” Fang Qiu asked a little awkwardly.
Xu Miaolin gave him a look and said, “You are not going to deliver a baby. What are you afraid of?”
Fang Qiu was speechless.
“You only need to feel pulses for every pregnant woman this time. Nothing else.”
Xu Miaolin advised.
Fang Qiu nodded.
The two of them came to the Center Hospital and went to the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology led by a physician.
It was right the office time.
There were many pregnant women who were queuing up for examination.
Because Xu Miaolin had talked to the leaders in advance, Fang Qiu and Xu Miaolin were arranged to sit at the clinic table which was temporarily set in the examination room.
The first pregnant woman came over.
“You are a doctor?”
Walking to the clinic table, the pregnant woman asked while handing the number to Fang Qiu and Xu Miaolin, “I am here to do a four-dimensional color ultrasonic diagnostic. Are you collecting numbers here?”
Both of them were dumbfounded and then smiled at the same time.
“This is a special examination of Chinese Medicine launched by our hospital today.”
A physician of that hospital hurriedly walked forward to explain.
Hearing that, all the pregnant women who were lining up for the examination couldn’t help frowning.
They had come for examinations for many times. This was their first time to hear of the examination of Chinese Medicine and was also their first time to see Fang Qiu and Xu Miaolin, so they were inevitably worried and were afraid that they had to pay some extra fees and so on.
“Don’t worry. The two of them are both the awesome doctors of Chinese Medicine. They are here today for voluntary pulse diagnosis and they won’t charge any money. If you are in need, you can ask them to feel pulses for you. If not, give your numbers of diagnosis to me and line up here.”
The physician explained hurriedly.
Hearing that it was free and they were both very awesome doctors of Chinese Medicine, the worries on the faces of the pregnant women immediately dispersed a lot.
“Anyway, I have to queue up. Can I hand in my number first and then let them feel my pulse?” asked a pregnant woman.
Xu Miaolin nodded with a smile.
At the sound of this, the pregnant women all gathered around at once.
“Since it’s a free examination, why should I refuse it?”
“Besides, they are doctors of Chinese Medicine who will just feel my pulse.”
Seeing the long line in front of the clinic table, Xu Miaolin smiled slightly. He turned to Fang Qiu and asked, “After reading so many books, do you still remember what the pulse condition of a pregnant woman is?”
“It’s the slippery pulse.”
Fang Qiu nodded and said, “It is slippery while pressing it, smooth like a rolling ball.”
Xu Miaolin nodded and said, “Let’s start.”
Just like the free clinic in the shantytown.
Xu Miaolin felt the pulse for the first pregnant woman first.
After a minute…
After feeling the pulse, Xu Miaolin looked at the pregnant woman with a smile and said, “You are in good health and the baby is very healthy.”
“Great. Thank you, doctor.”
The pregnant woman was very happy.
“It’s your turn.”
Xu Miaolin said to Fang Qiu.
When the first pregnant woman was about to withdraw her hand, Fang Qiu suddenly reached out his hand.
Seeing this, the pregnant woman did not say anything but let Fang Qiu continue to feel her pulse.
“So this is the pulse of pregnancy?”
Shortly after he started, Fang Qiu clearly felt that the pulse of the pregnant woman was indeed like a ball rolling, which was a typical slippery pulse.
“Doctor, how is it?”
Just when Fang Qiu was carefully feeling the pulse, the pregnant woman asked.
“Oh, very good.”
Fang Qiu came to himself and said with a smile, “Don’t worry.”
“Thank you. Thank you, doctor.”
The pregnant woman smiled happily and turned to leave.
Then there came a young couple in their twenties.
With the accompany of her husband, the pregnant woman walked over to the table and sat down.
Xu Miaolin said.
Fang Qiu also did not hesitate and started immediately.
Just now, he had clearly touched the slippery pulse and felt the pulse condition carefully. The next step was to accumulate experience and to feel the subtle differences in each pulse.
He reached out to feel the pulse.
Fang Qiu carefully felt for a while.
All of a sudden, his eyes lit up.
“If the pulse of the left hand is faster, it will be a boy. If the pulse of the right hand is faster, it will be a girl!”
A thought came to Fang Qiu’s mind. He smiled mysteriously and said, “Congratulations! Congratulations!”
Hearing that, the young couple was very happy. Then they looked at Fang Qiu and asked with concern, “Doctor, how is it?”
“The baby is very healthy.”
Fang Qiu nodded his head with a smile and asked, “But do you know if it’s a boy or a girl?”
The reason why he asked it was that he had already known it.
He remembered that according to a medical book, “if a doctor distinguishes the gender by the pulse, the pulses of a boy and a girl are the same. Only the cubit pulses are different. If it’s a boy, the cubit pulse will be weak. If it’s a girl, the cubit pulse will be strong. The pulse of the left hand is related to the spiritual changes and the pulse of the right hand is related to the physical changes. If the pulse of the left hand is bigger, it will a boy. If the pulse of the right hand is bigger, it will a girl.”
While feeling the pulse, Fang Qiu clearly diagnosed that the woman was pregnant with a boy.
However, there was a rule in the modern hospitals that a fetus’s gender should not be disclosed easily to prevent some traditional families from giving up their babies’ lives due to son preference.
Therefore, Fang Qiu did not say it out at first. He asked the couple instead.
“I have been pregnant with this baby for more than five months. Whenever we came to do an examination, the doctor has never told us.”
The pregnant woman said.
“Doctor, what about telling us? It is said that doctors of Chinese Medicine can feel whether it’s a boy or a girl.”
The husband said in a low voice as he leaned forward.
“This… is not appropriate.”
Fang Qiu hesitated.
At the side, Xu Miaolin was surprised. He looked at Fang Qiu and asked, “You have felt it?”
Fang Qiu nodded.
“Go ahead, just this one. It won’t happen again.”
Xu Miaolin said.
As a highly-skilled doctor, he naturally knew the rule of the hospital that the genders of fetuses were not allowed to reveal. Despite this rule, he was more curious about whether Fang Qiu could really tell the gender of the fetus by feeling the pulse.
“Yes, yes, doctor, just tell us first.”
The young couple looked at Fang Qiu expectantly and requested.
Fang Qiu thought for a while and whispered, “It’s a boy.”
The pregnant woman was delighted.
At the side, her husband was not excited. Instead, he muttered, “Why is it a boy? I like daughters.”
As a result, before he finished speaking, his wife immediately gave him a look. He could only shut his mouth immediately and hurriedly please his wife.
Hearing Fang Qiu’s answer, Xu Miaolin immediately said, “Let me see.”
As he said that, he immediately felt the pulse for the pregnant woman.
“Yes, it’s a boy.”
Xu Miaolin looked at Fang Qiu in surprise.
Although he knew that Fang Qiu was very talented, he did not expect that Fang Qiu was talented to this extent actually.
“This is just the second pregnant woman.”
“You can tell whether it’s a boy or a girl?”
“Of course, there is a premise condition for telling fetuses’ genders. Only when a pregnant woman has been pregnant for at least 5 months can we distinguish it based on the pulse diagnosis. If it’s less than 5 months, it doesn’t work.”
“Good boy. Not bad!”
After the young couple left, Xu Miaolin just praised Fang Qiu in surprise and said, “However, this is just the foundation. The most important things of feeling the pulse of pregnancy are the experience and touch.”
Fang Qiu nodded with understanding.
He continued to feel pulses.
Every time, Fang Qiu felt first and Xu Miaolin followed him.
After Fang Qiu felt a pulse, Xu Miaolin confirmed it.
For several women in a row, Fang Qiu felt pulses very accurately, which also made Xu Miaolin very satisfied.
At this time, another young woman came.
At first glance, she was in her twenties with a thin figure and a flat belly. She looked like an ordinary unmarried woman and didn’t look like pregnant at all.
She walked over to the table.
Without saying anything, she sat down directly and gave her hand to Fang Qiu.
Fang Qiu immediately started.
In a minute. “Hmm?”
After feeling the pulse, Fang Qiu looked at this woman puzzledly and asked, “Are you really pregnant?”
“Her pulse condition is not like the pulse of pregnancy at all and is the same as a normal pulse.”
The woman nodded affirmatively and said, “It’s been two weeks.”
At this time, Fang Qiu thought of something and looked at Xu Miaolin.
Xu Miaolin sighed unhurriedly and said, “In fact, pulse diagnosis for pregnancy is not applicable for every pregnant woman. The basic condition of pulse diagnosis for pregnancy is that she has to be pregnant for more than one month or two. Because only when a woman is pregnant for more than one month or two can she has the pulse of pregnancy. So it is very difficult to feel the pulse of pregnancy for a woman who is only pregnant for less than a month. Generally, it’s impossible.”
Fang Qiu was dumbfounded and hurriedly asked, “What should I do under this circumstance?”
The reason why he came to feel the pulse was to challenge Li Wenbo.
“Who knows what kind of pregnant women Li Wenbo will bring over?”
Moreover, Li Wenbo, as a doctor of Western Medicine, must have studied the skills of pulse diagnosis for pregnancy in the Chinese Medicine industry, so he dared to issue the challenge openly and wantonly.
“In this case.”
“Li Wenbo will certainly find some pregnant women, whose pulses are difficult to detect, as participants in the battle.”
“If what he finds are all the women who have only been pregnant for less than one or two months, how can we compete?”
“Well, it’s not absolute.”
Xu Miaolin thought for a while and said, “An absolute expert of Chinese Medicine can feel it. Or when your touch is strong enough to a certain extent, you can also detect a slight slippery pulse.”
Hearing that, a thought came to Fang Qiu’s mind.
“Others may lack the touch, but I never lack it.”
“My absolute touch is no kidding!”
“I’ll try again.”
Under Xu Miaolin’s reminder, Fang Qiu felt the pulse again.
This time, he directly used Absolute Touch.
With the Absolute Touch, Fang Qiu immediately detected a very subtle pulse, from which he could diagnose that the woman was indeed pregnant.
“I can feel it.”
After that, Fang Qiu immediately smiled.
Xu Miaolin, who was holding a cup to drink tea, almost squirted all the water out. He hurriedly held back and swallowed the tea. Then he turned to look at Fang Qiu and asked, “Are you serious?”
Fang Qiu nodded with absolute certainty.
“How did you do this?”
Xu Miaolin asked incredulously, “It’s really hard. ”
“I feel that my touch is pretty good.”
Fang Qiu replied with a smile.
Xu Miaolin was surprised. He immediately thought of Fang Qiu’s touch before when he touched mahjong. Under the circumstances that he had never touched mahjong, he could feel it accurately. “His touch is so awesome.”
“Well, it seems that we’re more confident this time.”
Xu Miaolin chuckled.
Fang Qiu speechlessly looked at Xu Miaolin and said, “Don’t tell me that you were not confident before.”
Xu Miaolin smiled awkwardly and said, “Go on. Go on.”
Fang Qiu: “…”
After informing the woman who was two weeks pregnant of some dos and don’ts, he continued to feel pulses for others.
