what not to watch???lol

Yesterday, this channel (TLC I think) had a marathon of shows called Maternity Ward. Boy, was it scary!! babies were born with intestines on the outside, one died. Others were born 3 months early, with spina bifida, bowel obstructions, drug addictions, even AIDS!! Now, granted, they were focusing on public hospitals that service very very low income (to no income) families, but it was scary nonetheless. I have an ultrasound next week to see the baby for the first time and check for abnormalities (im 5 months along now) and this SOOOO did not ease my mind!!!!lol

<IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> I hear you. Another thing that doesn't ease your mind when you're pregnant is other woman who have been pregnant and go on to tell you about the horrible pain they had and how their birth must have been the worst one in history, how they were in labor for 75 hours or some such thing <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">

lol, I heard that with my first pregnancy--all the horror stories!!!! I would personally like to thank those jerks for trying to ruin my happiness-do they do that on purpose???!!! As for this pregnancy, I already know what Im in for, and have opted to do it again, so it wasnt THAT bad!

Re: what not to watch???lol

In regards to the TLC program, I know exactley what you are talking about with the children born with organs on the outside, actually my best friend was born like that, and I also did some voleentering in a hospital where I just job shawdowed a few doctors and stuff and I was up in the NICU. A boy was born with a few organs on the outside, they had him go thru surgery and then each day they pushed on his tummy to get them go back down. As for my best friend they did the same with her, but you would have never of know that she was born like that unless she told you. I learned a few things up in the NICU, and I don't mean to offend anyone, but I used to tear up a lot every time I saw a baby in NICU, but now it amazes me that a baby born so small or with so many difficulties can still survive, it's truley amazing how far technology has come.
