The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
|I am just curious if this is a widespread problem--too big babies for women who are supposedly too small. When and how can you tell if this is an issue?|
The widespread problem is doctors, not us.
Or maybe she didnt want to get streched out down there like whoever is on with Regis.
With my first I went to a Dr for my first prenatal and when she heard I wanted to do a HB told me I was to small, the baby would never fit.:LOL : When I may be tiny framed but let me tell you the babes practically fall out of me. The peri is the only thing to small, tears each time.
And Ryder was a WHOPPING 8 lb. 11 ounces!
I'm 5'0", pre preg weight is 105 and I gave birth to an 8 lb 12 oz baby and a 9 lb. 1 oz. baby with no problem at all.
And in the same issue, they mentioned Debra Messing's belly is getting big and they speculated her baby would be born sooner than expected. What does one have to do with the other?
And..they showed a picture of Courteney Cox's little teeny buldge and they're asking about twins.
What is wrong with these people?!?!?!?!
We just don't matter in this world!: : :
I remember reading about the doctors telling Goldie that her babies were too big.
Are Caesarean Sections hereditary(?)
I guess they had the same inept doctor.

Medical Studies and statistics prove that large babies are the main cause of obstetrical distress in doctors.
IN re: to Courtney Cox....I'm *guessing* there will be specualtion about multips because she's been using fertility treatments. Not sure what they've been doing, but know they've made it public they've been using treatments and have had a hard time concieving.
that includes critical thinking and intelligence.
RE: baby's weight
All of you L&D nurses: how often are those scales in the delivery room calibrated?
Do doctors tell you to lie about the weight to gain and/or confirm the "lie" that the baby is too big for a vaginal delivery?
I do not expect any response here, but I do recall weighing my baby brother, a moose, born at home when I was 14 in 1968. He kept moving, and the scale, standard at the time. kept moving, and I weighed him with my Father and finally decided that he was eight lbs eleven ounces.
I know everything is computerized now, but those cold rooms do something to the machinery and to the airpressure.
With all of mine born at home, I know that those tired midwives were not all very careful about being precise with the weight. My youngest was weighed with a fishing scale. In three days at the pediatrician's office, there was a marked difference.
|Are Caesarean Sections hereditary(?)|
Women learn about birth from their mothers.
After over a century of having babies in institutions, most women have no concept of natural birth in their families.
HAHAHAHAHA!! Applejuice-Your hilarious!!! :LOL :LOL :LOL
ITA as well!! If it is "what my mother went through" it is "Familliar" and therefore "Safe"..... right??? :LOL
Yes, I think that C-sec for ANY other reasone that MEDICALY NESESARRY (and MY definition of this is pretty harsh & narrow) is a CROCK!!!
I am 5'1" with a very large frame and had a great deal of difficulty pushing out a 7 lb 7 oz baby. He was actually born with a vacuum thingy. You can't really tell by size of the outside, it has to do with the space in the middle of your pelvis. So while it's unlikely, it is possible that the baby was too big for her to push out. I think that the quickie tummy-tuck is more likely, though. How else do you explain the way celbrity moms don't seem to have a post-partum chubby period like the rest of us?
|[i]And in the same issue, they mentioned Debra Messing's belly is getting big and they speculated her baby would be born sooner than expected. What does one have to do with the other?
I was like YAAAAA!
Unless the pelvis is deformed, it has a lot more to do with the management of the pushing phase. For instance, squatting opens up the pelvic outlet by 30%. Honestly, I would be surprised if Kate Hudson could push out a nine-pound baby, given typical obstetrical management.
Remember, the pelvic ligaments stretch, and the baby's head molds...
