Poor babies. Lesson from the show - if your mama doesn't know she's pg or in labor -you will be born and (a) immediately be dropped into a toilet bowl or (b) fall onto the cement floor of a public bathroom and whack your head and have your umbilical cord rip. Loved the dad that sees his wife screaming in pain (standing in a public bathroom at the campground), glimpses something emerging from her vagina and assumes it's her INTESTINES and runs for a phone to call 911. Wouldn't a baby be the first thing you assume is coming out of your wife, versus seemingly spontaneous self-DISEMBOWLEMENT??? I guess I would just think that the former is a more likely scenerio than the latter, KWIM?
And none of the people around the women told them to LIE DOWN or decided to check and see. I think a birth would be my first assumption without that amount of abdominal pain.
I couldn't stand the dire, scare-mongering of the "experts" and voice-overs. As *we* obviously know here are PLENTY of women that do have safe homebirths and UCs. In normal pregnancies (which was the situation in at least a few of the stories) there really isn't that much need for medical intervention and that much prenatal monitoring. If you listened to the "advice" of the show, all preggos need be on restricted activity and under intense scrutiny of a team of OBs, for crying out loud, lest SOMETHING HAPPEN TO THE BABY!!!! It was so threatening, which was irritating.
|I couldn't BELIEVE her boyfriend didn't go to the hospital with her. WTF? So she ended up passed out on their lawn for who knows how long while doofus was just sleeping soundly in bed and waiting for her to call him when she arrived at the hospital? W...T....F????
ZOMG, YES!!!!!!!!! "Um, honey? I'm having horrible pain and discomfort, perhaps it's a heart attack. I'm just going to drive myself over to the ER. No worries, you enjoy your nap now, dear." Unbelievable.
I had carpal tunnel surgery last week and am finding all of these medical reinactment shows to be the best for insomnia!!
