Default Chuck Norris Baby

I have a friend who's due pretty much any day now, and her baby kicked her so hard that he gave her a hernia!

I never heard of that happening before.

Eh...I'm not buying that story. The pregnancy may have given her a hernia, but not a fetal kick. Fetuses don't kick hard enough to split through a muscle.

But the baby could break bone? Someone's baby on this board broke her rib.

In Jenny Mcarthy's book (AWFUL, btw, not nearly as funny as she thinks she is but how great does she look now?!?!), she talked about her ribs repeatedly dislocating.

I don't know that it has anything to do with this conversation, but it scared the poop out of me when I read it.

The rib could break due to constant pressure being applied though .... I don't know if one blow from the baby could do it. I think constant pressure could probably explain the hernia as well.

it felt like both my babies were trying to round-house my lower ribs!

it hurt like hell. so much so that i would grab my belly and shake it to get them to change positions. my husband hated when i did that. but those jabs were no joke!

i could have sworn that our son tried to punch or stomp a hole through my cervix! that was pain that would catch me, take my breath away, and make me bend over to collect myself. we had to leave a restaurant one night because it felt like our daughter was trying to assemble a tent by herself inside my uterus. we were in a booth, and my husband had to move the whole table to slide me out because i couldn't use any of my muscles to get up on my own.

but our babies were born strong and healthy. i only have residual twitching and stuttering as a result.

I guess I don't know how I ever managed to carry 4 babies without injuries. My babies were all 8 and 9 pounds at term, very healthy and normal. And I never got a single broken rib or hernia or even a damn bruise...I feel left out of the infirm club.

Seriously...that sounds a wee bit exaggerated...

I know someone that got a visible bruise near the ribs, but that's about it.

Well then clearly, the OP is just full of it. I mean, if it didn't happen to you then it just can not happen.

Is it a hard, being such an expert on everydamnthing?

No, it's not really hard. I just use common sense. Apparently it's not so common though...

The hyperbole from some women about the strength of fetuses is quite unbelievable. If a woman has no underlying medical conditions (like bleeding disorders or fragile bone diseases for instance), fetuses are not going to bruise her, break her ribs or kick through muscles and cause hernias. Fetuses simply aren't strong enough to do that. Discomfort, yes, it can be uncomfortable, but I don't think women who haven't yet had babies should be scared of injury from their future fetuses from reading this board.

well RCW, you certainly are the standard by which all women should be measured. i mean, by God, if you haven't experienced it, then it certainly is a falsehood or exaggeration, right?

maybe you have a higher tolerance for pain than the average woman so that you didn't notice certain movements or sensations that would have sent other women to the doctor or ER. have you never considered that? why is it easier for you to discredit what another person is sharing with you than it is to accept it?

my first baby was 7.8 lb, and my second was 9.4. both were very active and strong in-utero. and many of their sudden position changes and stretches did cause me the kind of pain that i described above.

i have no reason to lie or embellish.

In this case...yes, it sounds grossly exaggerated. Sorry...
