PSA the First

on 18 March 2008

Can I please make a public service announcement?

If you, oh Internets, happen to know a pregnant woman, and you happen to be in conversation with said pregnant woman about how far along she is and how the baby is doing--

Will you please REFRAIN from telling her that her baby is now VIABLE and then proceed to tell her what the chances are of SURVIVAL depending on medical care and then please also do NOT tell her all the things that could be wrong with said child if the child were born at this point?

PLEASE?!

We're all very impressed that you know this information--PLEASE KEEP IT TO YOURSELF.

Thank you.



We will now resume our regularly scheduled programming.

Oh dear. That is information I don't really need to know.

I've missed you.

The best is when they add in the potential disabilities they would have if born at this point. Thanks. A lot. Oh, and I was looking at my pregnancy book and it says a baby at 24 weeks weighs almost 2 pounds. I don't understand why they can't all agree but I always want to think the baby is bigger. Makes me feel better about my tummy. :)

Hey! I found your blog!
I love smart people who like to share everything they know! That is why I am a slacker...less knowledge = less ways to annoy people!
