The perfect wife? (football related) - Page 2

post #31 of 45
Well...I could care less about any sports game. As far as inducing the birth of a baby early, I really don't believe in it, unless it has gone way past it's due date.

I don't know if I want to accept Astrology, but when they induced this babies birth, they basically changed this childs destiny. They did change the babies Astrological sign. They changed the time this baby was supposed to come into this world. I know there is a famous saying that says something about "There is a Time to be born, and a Time to die", and what they have done is change the TIME this baby was supposed to be born, and I just don't believe it's right to mess with Destiny, especially when it's for something as trivial as a sports event.

I know and that's the scary part to me. But that is just my opinion. They're free to do what they please

I wouldn't induce a baby for any reason other than a medical necessity. If it wasn't ready to pop out it wasn't ready! I certainly wouldn't do it just so that the father could go to a football match.

Welll, you know, this is an odd one. Initially I thought when I read it that her husband played for the Bears, and then I thought well, yes, fair enough. This is his job and things need to be arranged! But then I realised he was just a fan - erm, not sure how I feel about that.

I think probably if this was their first child, they weren't to blame for not fully realising that the birth of a child is a LOT more profound than a Superbowl final - no matter how much of a fan you are. Also, they are not to blame for the fact that this baby's timing wasn't really the best in terms of their passion for the sport.

In her shoes, I might well have done the same thing - we had our engagement party the night of the World Cup final, and a lot of our guests stayed in the lounge watching it at our party! I was a little offended, to say the least. I would hate to think my husband wouldn't be all there if our baby came in the middle of the Superbowl!

However, I do feel that babies come before football - particularly the birth of a baby. I don't really agree with it, but if they decided together, the doctor was ok with it, and neither of them were upset and they both felt like it was the best of all worlds for everyone concerned, then I guess no harm done. I just hope they never tell their baby - because I think that would be a little hurtful to find out.

How would everyone feel about this if the football was taken out?

What if the husband was due to be deployed the day the baby was due so they induced a few days eariler so that he could be there for sure?

What they induced because they didn't want the 2am rush to the hospital just to find out it was false labor? So they set a due close to due day and induced.

What if they had other small children and they didn't want to have to rush the kids to a family members or friends house at 2am in the morning for false labor or the real thing? So they induce a few days before due date.

Or for another loop what if its not a simple induction what if they had a elective section. And what if its for any of the above reasons? Or what if its because the woman does not want to feel the pain of a vaginal delivery so she has a section a few days before the due date.

Are you still as upset or are you more upset now?

IMO the woman in this article probably wanted this induction for her own reasons tho she probably would not admit that.

That's precisely the situation I was thinking of, as I'm sure it's currently happening often enough.
You obviously can't compare attending a football game to being deployed, but the reason for the induction really doesn't play a medical role here.

Yeah I am not trying to compare a football game to being deployed. I am just trying show ,I guess, other reasons why someone would opted for an induction when not medically necessary. Truth is many woman get this none medical necessary inductions everyday. Some for no other reason than they are done and they want the baby here. But the general public just does not here about it as often. And I suspect this one made the paper simply because a football game was involved.

That's the only circumstance in which I'd say it was ok. And even then I'm a bit on the fence. I can see why someone would want to do that so that the father could see his child before going away, but in general I don't agree with messing with things like that unless it's to reduce medical risks for mother or baby. I don't think the birth of a baby is something you schedule into your diary like a visit to the cinema. It happens when it happens. I have known people induce the birth of their baby so that s/he can get into an earlier year at school (an ex colleague did that).

I don't see anything wrong with that, personally. I was fortunate to have been born two weeks before the cut-off for kindergarten, otherwise I would have been behind kids my own age. My nephews were born TWO months apart, and one of them is in a grade higher than the other. When they get older, it'll really change the dynamics of their friendship significantly.

If it doesn't endanger the baby, or the mother, I see nothing wrong with it. Maybe I'm crazy, lol.

Sorry, I was agreeing with you. The "you" was the generic one.
So many women choose to have "unnecessary" C-sections nowadays that I don't see how this is any different.

The article says NFC Championship game. Are we sure she didn't do it because she's a huge Bear's fan too? I know I my team was in a huge game I would look into it. I specificly choose a summer wedding because it won't conflict with my WVU Mountaineers football or basketball games.

I heard on the radio that the father went to the game, the mother stayed home with the baby.

I dont see how its different than a scheduled C-Section, they are just scheduled at the OB's convenience, this was done for hers. Her baby will NOT be induced prematurely, he/she will be large, healthy, and full-term:mom may be a little sick of being pregnant after so long. I didnt realize at first hubby was actually going to Superbowl, and was going to mention how a week old screaming infant wouldnt be a great addition to a superbowl party ...

Would I do that for my husband? yes
Would my husband even consider allowing me to do that? NO!
