The only thing lame here is this being on Lamebook. A woman can be in labor for a really long time. She most likely has friends and family anxiously waiting to hear news. And 8 centimeters is refering to how dialated her cervix is, not her vagina…
Wait, she has the urge to push and she is able to update her status on facebook? I give this woman a standing ovation. When I gave birth to mine all I could do was scream for drugs that never came and growl like satan when it was time to push.
On second thought, I bet she got drugs, damn all the lucky ones!
@Pooter: No one is saying it’s lame that she’s about ready to give birth or that people are excited for her. It’s lame because she’s ON FACEBOOK while trying to deliver a baby. It says, “I’m pushing,” and, last time I checked, women don’t push unless they want the baby to pop out.
@ pugged: I agree She must be getting the good drugs. OR she was high on meth etc when she got there. All I did in labour was yell at my husband, push the button for more drugs, (they didnt work) cry, beg for a cesarian/someone to kill me. I dont understand the need to post while on the toilet/in the delivery room. She must have vadge that seen a rough tour of duty to be able to update while pushing. She probably popped that baby clear across the room with that push too.
Is anyone else wondering why there’s a person named “Amberoni?” Is this a common name somewhere in the world that I’m just not aware of yet…? If it is, I apologize for my ignorance, but it sounds fucking goofy to me.
Women can take ages in getting from not dilated to 4-5 cm dilated. By the time you’re 8 cm dilated, there’s around 2-3 hours max before it’s all done. This woman’s pretty much finished, and should be having giant contractions every 2 minutes or so. Must be an epidural.
In Pain? YES! Want/Need/ON Drugs? YES! Need to update your facebook status right now? NO! That should not be a priority!!! (and what happened to no phone usage in hospitals?) But well done on the coherent sentence structure and correct spelling even with pushing pains – Go you lil addict you!
Yeah, if her epidural was as good as mine, she probably had no problem at all. There’s no concentration necessary or anything. It’s just a quick squeeze or two (or six?) and POOF, (squirt, really), BABY.
Modern medicine ftmfw.
And @45, in some hospitals, especially in labor and delivery, they allow cellphones and laptops. It /is/ kind of important to be able to contact to father and let them know the baby is coming, after all. It doesn’t make sense to me why they wouldn’t allow it.
