ZOMG, not a DEVIL BABY!


The sad thing is? In the US, she'd probably get her way.


ETA: Happy 34th birthday to Manny Ramirez!

To be fair, I'd be a bit nervous if my kid was due on 6-6-06, and I'm not even Christian. *shrugs*

Maybe she should have been a little more careful with the dates she chooses to fuck.

That's totally unfair, what if she were raped and chose to have the baby? Or had been trying for a very very long time and just happened to succeed that one time. And to be perfectly honest, I would never know my due date until a doctor's visit, I just would assume about nine months but that's why I am not a medical professional. I guess that just makes me ignorant in your book.

superstition and childbirth. *slaps forehead*
where did she get her license to parent?

There are actually some really cool superstitions around birth. One is that a baby born in the caul (born with an intact amniotic sac)will be have special powers or gifts. Not many babies are born that way anymore, what with artificial rupture of the membranes during birth, internal monitors, caesarean sections, etc. It's a v. cool superstition, though.

At least the hospital's being sensible about it.

People are crazy sometimes.

I guess this is just another issue that you and I will never agree on, then again I think that the only thing we do agree on most of the time is how incredible your oldest male son is, and sometimes that can depend on the exact moment you catch me.

You don't need to agree with me. All sorts of studies are out there to prove it, and I've really seen a baby almost die from it. It was a very scary situation.

Oh. Good heavens. *beats head repeatedly on desk* How many babies are going to be born on that day? Are ALL of them going to be evil/the Antichrist? If you're that worried about it, have the poor child baptized at birth, don't bloody induce labor just to avoid the date. *resists urge to smite woman with her Clue-by-Four*

I do like what the hospital people said: "There is little we can do to change them without a Caesarean or inducing the child, which we try to avoid,' the spokesman said. "We must let nature take its course. The baby will be born when ready, no matter what day it is.'"

Most American hospitals wouldn't have, IMO.

*beats head against wall*

You know, in Orthodox Jewish synagogues, boys who aren't old enough for bar mitzvah aren't allowed to read the Song of Songs. I think Christian churches -- Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox, all of 'em -- should institute some kind of restrictive policy about apocalyptic literature like Revelation and Daniel. Like, you can't read it if YOU'RE A COMPLETE IDIOT. *scowl*

Is there a theological test for idiocy?

How ridiculous. :/

I know someone who was induced because her due date was April 1. A bit silly, IMHO. *sighs*

More than silly, it can be downright dangerous.

That's a bit surprising, that she'd want to take a chance at an extended labor and delivery. Why not just schedule a caesarian? ;-)

Actually, I just recently heard a story on NPR about women choosing to schedule caesarian delivery. They work with the doctor, do the ultrasound thing to make sure the baby is fully 'cooked' and then they go for it. The story covered pros and cons for the women making this kind of choice. I wouldn't call myself an advocate, but it was interesting.

And yeah. Intelligence testing should be required for drivers licensing and spouting Bible quotes from questionable sources. ;-)

I would suppose if the baby was 'cooked', vaginal birth would be the safer way to do things (better for baby's lungs, and the fact that C-sections are major abdominal surgery, with all THOSE risks). The problem is, they get it wrong a lot.

When I was pregnant with mr_t00by, I had FOUR u/s and an amniocentesis (to determine 'lung maturity'). The amnio was what sent me into labour (which isn't uncommon). It was three days past my due date, so I wasn't worried. The results came back (after he'd already been born)that his lungs weren't ready, which was entirely false because he was breathing just fine and there were no respiratory complications. In this case he was 'cooked'(all 9 lbs. 9 oz. of him) despite the test results.

The problem with working against nature like that is that nature is usually way smarter than science. IMO, messing with mother nature is a tricky thing.
