Actually, her doctor said afterwards that she had not given the OK, though Palin said she did check with her doctor. More of Palin's double speak?

    Palin was supposedly 4 weeks early with a Down's Syndrome baby, she claimed afterwards. Find a maternity doctor who would say it would be ok for a 44 year old, in that situation, to not get to a hospital asap, let alone to fly for 8 hours.

    Her judgement, if not her truthfulness, come into play whenever such a dolt judges someone else.
    I don't know. I don't have access to her medical records. I know when my own mother was pregnant with my sister, she went into labor and waited a good 12 hours until her contractions were a certain time apart and then she got her bag and went out the door with my dad.

    I'm really not inclined to judge a woman based on what she does with her own body and, as far as I recall, there hasn't been some issue raised with her child being damaged by her actions so...it's just you being completely irrelevant with your howling and crying about something that is not germane to this topic at all.

    Having contractions is not the same as your water breaking. The water is the amniotic fluid that protects the soon to be birthed baby. It is quite common for contractions to be underway for hours and hours before water breaks.

    As the poster said, broken water is serious.


    Water Breaking


    Bag of waters is another name for the amniotic sac, which is full of fluid that protects the baby. When the amniotic sac ruptures (your "water breaks"), the amniotic fluid flows out. Many times the water breaks shortly before labor begins. However, in most cases membranes are ruptured after the woman goes to the hospital and she is in labor.

    When your water breaks, you may feel a gush of fluid, followed by slow leaking, or you may just feel a slow leaking, without the gush of fluid. A sanitary pad helps absorb the slow leaking so you are not embarrassed by it. Contact your doctor as soon as your water breaks. You may be told to go to the hospital if labor is beginning. If you are not near term, you may be asked to go to your doctor's office for an examination. You may not be ready to deliver your baby yet, and your doctor wants to prevent you from getting an infection. The risk of infection increases when your water breaks.

    Despite what you may hear about a woman's water breaking when she is in public, it doesn't happen very often. If it happens to you, people will be very understanding and helpful. At that stage your pregnancy is very obvious!

    There's a big difference between labor contractions and a woman's water breaking. Once their water breaks they are now susceptible to infection and any doctor would tell her to get to a hospital asap. Taking into consideration the facts that she was 44, 4 weeks early and (she claimed) knew she was carrying a down's syndrom baby this makes her decisions and judgement very, very questionable.

    I'm really not inclined to judge a woman based on what she does with her own body
    How about what she could be doing to her about to be born baby?

    and, as far as I recall, there hasn't been some issue raised with her child being damaged by her actions
    Her baby has down's syndrome. If he was "damaged" we would never know. It's not like Palin would ever admit it.

    so...it's just you being completely irrelevant with your howling and crying about something that is not germane to this topic at all.
    Her judgement is very germane when she is "judging" anyone else.

    One person's howling is another's truth.

    Re: Palin Blasts Emanuel for Calling Dem Idea 'Retarded'

    Okay, having had firsthand (well, second-hand, it was firsthand for my wife) experience with both water breaking and a baby with Down syndrome, I have to weigh in.

    Water breaking can happen early, before labor. It is also a risk for infection, and most doctors err on the side of caution because that's what doctors do. On the other hand, it's quite possible to take simple precautions and walk around after the water breaks without infection. Sometimes the leak even plugs up and the amniotic fluid fills back up. It's a matter of concern, but it's not necessarily an emergency either.

    It would probably be quite easy to tell the difference between typical symptoms of DS and damage due to birth problems.

    yes you are.

    You're upset all over the place when discussing the unconstitutional forced sterilization of crack ho's to prevent crack babies.

    Let's face it, if someone DOESN"T judge a crack ho by what she's doing to her body, that someone is a god damned idiot, or a liar.

    Establish the date when she first heard of the comment. If it was a long time ago, your comment is relevant.

    Outside of that, though, it's good to watch liberal, socialists, and other unamerican types to drink from PC Apology Hemlock.

    True. However, in both cases any doctor would advise the mom to get to a hospital to either get ready for the birth, to determine if the sac did indeed break or to take care to prevent infection if the sac does reseal.

    Palin's doctor did say that she did NOT approve Palin to fly back to Alaska. So, if she was indeed pregnant then she went against her doctor's recommendations (and flew back to Alaska). That would show a severe lack of judgement.
