Wow. Fewer than 1 in a million of these babies survive. That really is a miracle.

That is certainly a Jaclyn-approved usage of caesarean delivery.

I liked this line
Quote:
I knew I was going to have a caesarean, but I didn't know it would be that difficult," she said.
So much for the "I'll have a csection it'll be easier" way of thinking.

I'm just a bit confused. She knew she was going to have the c/s? at what point? Did she know something was up? she just showed up at hospital with pain. How did the u/s not show the position of the baby? very weird, but I'm happy both mom and baby came out of it ok. Also weird that the article said she did'nt want to be photgraphed but there was a pic of her at the top.

Am I in a mood today, or what? :LOL

I assumed the pic was of a nurse, holding the baby. They don't actually identify her.

Maybe the doctors looked at the ultrasound showing an "abnormal placental insertion," whatever that is, and told her she needed a c-section?

Wow. Just wow.

It says she was a visitor to Canada -- perhaps she showed up at an ER? Maybe they didn't really know what was going on, yk?

A family from my church has a daughter who recently had a baby grow outside of the uterus -- IIRC, she doesn't have a uterus, so they weren't expecting to be able to have kids. Near the end of the pgcy, she was on bedrest. The baby was really taxing her body, and I believe her blood pressure was very low. They were leaving the baby there for as long as they could so it could be as developed as possible, but had to balance that against keeping the mom alive. The baby was at church a few weeks ago, being doted on by a very happy family.

"When an egg is fertilised, it normally travels down the fallopian tube to the womb, where it implants and grows.

But sometimes, the embryo implants in the fallopian tube, a standard ectopic pregnancy

In some cases - around one in 100,000 pregnancies - it falls out of the fallopian tube and can implant anywhere in the abdomen."
That is so CRAZY!!








I was just thinking about this the other day while in anatomy class and had realized while studying some diagrams that there's a space between my ovaries and fallopian tubes. All I could think was "WTF?!?" I know it's stupid I didn't know but I didn't! :

Mooooom! to  guitar.gifDS (1/05) and whistling.gifDSS (11/05).  TTC fingersx.gifour "ours" after VR on 10/12.

Yep.. I read it in TCOYF.. That the fallopian tubes little finger like things REACH for the egg if it strays.. Most of the time they(the little finger-y parts) catch them (the eggs)!!! How freakin' cool is that!!!
