Birth Story Me and my husband had just gotten married and start throwing up. I must be sick or something, we convince our selfs. After a couple of day of this and the nagging voice of my bestfriend in my ear "your pregnant, watch". I get a pregnancy test. The longest 5 minutes ever, I take a deep breath and look "its positive". We are haveing our second baby. After a breaf freak out we get excited. We both grab a phone and start calling and telling all our family. I loved being pregnant, feeling her kick and move all around. It was just an amazing experience. This was my second baby but my husband first. He was so cute. He would talk to her and sing to her. He would get mad in the beginning because he couldn't feel her kick. The first time he felt her kick was so precious, he had the biggest smile on his face. The first ultrasound was amazing. When we got to hear her little heart for the first time his face lit up with joy. The prenancy went pretty smooth after i got over the horrible morning sickness that lasted into my second trimester. This pregnancy was quiet different from my first. I had idegestion from hell, and everything was so swollen. I didn't have any of that with my first. Her due date was April 14th 2013. On April 8th I start have contractions. I waited untill they got pretty bad and we headed to the hospital. We get there and the nurse checks everything. She says im only 2 centimeters dialated and the contractions have stopped so she sends us home. The contractions come and go for another couple days. Mid afternoon my mucus plug comes out and the contractions start worse than befor. Back to the hospital we go. The nurse checks...only 3 centimeters. She suggests we stay and walk the halls to see if we can keep it moving. Again it stops. She says go home and keep walking. For the next day or so i walk and walk. I wake up at 4 in the morning…...

...would never walk again. Yet he refused to be depressed. Instead, Morrie had become a lightning rod of ideas. He jotted down his thoughts on yellow pads, envelopes, folders, scrap paper. He wrote bite-sized philosophies about living with death’s shadow: “Accept what you are able to do and what you are not able to do”; “Accept the past as past, without denying it or discarding it”; “Learn to forgive yourself and to forgive others”; “Don’t assume that it’s too late to get involved.” After a while, he had more than fifty of these “aphorisms,” which he shared with his friends. One friend, a fellow Brandeis professor named Maurie Stein, was so taken with the words that he sent them to a Boston Globe reporter, who came out and wrote a long feature story on Morrie. The headline read: A Professor’s Final Course: His Own Death The article caught the eye of a producer from the “Nightline” show, who brought it to Koppel in Washington, D. C. “Take a look at this,” the producer said. Next thing you knew, there were cameramen in Morrie’s living room and Koppel’s limousine was in front of the house. Several of Morrie’s friends and family members had gathered to meet Koppel, and when the famous man entered the house, they buzzed with excitement—all except Morrie, who wheeled himself forward, raised his eyebrows, and interrupted the clamor with his high, singsong voice. “Ted, I need to check you out before I agree to do this interview.” There was an awkward moment of silence, then the......

Home Birth vs. Hospital Birth

...Home Birth vs. Hospital Birth Delivering a baby in the home and in the hospital both provide comfort to some, but homebirth offers decreased cost and hospital births offer more options. Some women have different birthing methods in mind when it comes to delivering a child. Some women feel that it is more convenient to stay home to deliver their child. Mothers-to-be will choose to have a hospital birth because they may feel safer or more secure knowing that if something is not right or if she has had complications, the doctor is there and she is in a hospital and everything will be okay. Are you a mother-to-be? Are you having trouble trying to figure out whether to have a homebirth or a hospital birth? I sure hope that this paper will help you make your final decision. The reason women choose to have a homebirth is because it is more convenient to stay home. She has no bags to pack, long and uncomfortable rides to the nearest hospital, and she does not have any paperwork or registration. Her chosen midwife (a person trained to assist women during childbirth) comes to her when she is ready for her. Of course, it is more convenient after the baby is born as well. She will have all of her own baby items there and there would be no need for her husband to drive home to get the baby clothes or anything. The reason women choose to have a hospital birth is because it is usually more convenient for them. They feel as though all they have to do is pack a few things and head to the...

Birth Control

...Brittany Davis J. Myers Essay #4 Birth Control for Teens We have all heard stories about teenage pregnancies. There are girls that have to drop out of school to take care of their newborn and now get jobs to support their unexpected new family. Then there are the guys who think they need to marry that girl just because she had his baby. Very often that marriage will lead into a divorce because they were rushed into it. Even worse, some men up and leave that girl because he doesn’t want to be tied down with a baby. There are so many controversies with having a baby while in your teens. There are parents raising their children’s baby, too many teens having babies and sometimes more babies directly after, and Television Reality shows such as, Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant, making teens think it’s not so bad. When you’re a parent, the last thing you want to hear is your sixteen year old daughter is pregnant. For one, sixteen is nowhere near ready for a baby of their own. That’s the age where you start hanging out with your friends and staying out a little more. That’s also the age where you get your driver’s license. Music cranked up, windows down, hair flowing in the wind, your best girlfriends riding around with you in your new car; so why mess all that up and throw a baby in the mix? There are too many teens having babies in this generation because of unprotected sex. Condoms and birth control are highly effective ways to help prevent unwanted pregnancies to happen.......

Birth Assessment

..."Birth Assessment" Throughout history there have been many ways medical and non-medical people have modified and enhanced the effectiveness of child birth. Some have made the experience more positive while others have caused physical and emotional harm to women. There are different ways that women can give birth: natural, cesarean, and hypno-birthing. Of these ways women can deliver I feel some of the most important aspects are in the advancement of men in the delivery room. It is wonderful to see the great accomplishments and improvements our culture has made through the years. In many years before men were not allowed to witness the birth of their child because it was considered inappropriate. Now men are allowed to be there in the room and most men chose to be there in the room to support their partner and witness the birth of their child. When a woman gives birth without the help of surgical or medical helped it is called natural childbirth. Many women chose to give birth this way and they do this to feel more in tune or at ease with the natural way. Just because a woman may give birth naturally it does not necessarily mean that they are not in a hospital or under the supervision of a medical professional. Any woman that chooses to go the natural childbirth route can choose where they give birth and what doctor they choose to be there for the event. Another positive is that a natural childbirth can allow the mother to be in control of every aspect of the labor......

Birth of a Nation

...Racism has been around since the beginning of time. Basically if you had a skin tone darker than the shade of white, you were inferior. Times have now changed, but there are remnants of this subject everywhere, even in film. The movie Birth of a Nation is considered one of the greatest films of all time, even with these themes. AMC’s Filmsite even has it listed within the 100 Greatest Films of All Time. Another movie with the some of the same themes is Blazing Saddles. Blazing Saddles does not have the same stature as Birth of a Nation, but it does deserve to be higher in the canon. I do believe that Blazing Saddles does not have the same stature because it is a comedy with crude humor and because it has a black sheriff as the protagonist. The D. W. Griffith film was considered controversial and is still considered controversial to this day. Basically it paints the story of the rise of the Ku Klux Klan. Of course the KKK members were the heroes of the story and saved everyone from harm. The film uses white actors painted in black face to portray freed slaves. It also portrays them as savages and rapists. There was not one “black” person in the film that wasn’t considered a villain. During the voting scene, blacks were seen taking over the polls while the whites had their votes taken away. One quote in the movie when talking about a village says, “In the villages the negroes were the office holders, men who knew none of the uses of authority.” The freed slaves were just......

Birth Defects

... Birth defects About one in every 33 babies (about 3%) is born with a birth defect. Birth defects are structural or functional abnormalities present at birth that cause physical or mental disability. There are two types of birth defects structure and functional. Structural birth defects are related to a problem with body parts. Some physical problems include cleft lip or cleft palate, heart defects, such as missing or misshaped valves, and abnormal limbs, such as a club foot. Functional birth defects are related to a problem with how a body part or body system works. No one is immune to birth defects, yet not everyone is equally susceptible. Birth defects are not merely a medical problem. They have profound effects on the social and psychological well being of their family and friends. In the normal course of fetal development, a cell migrates to their appropriate destination so that organs and limbs form where they should. Usually, the genes perform flawlessly, but mistakes can and do occur. Some of the most common birth defects results from the interaction between one or two abnormal genes out of 100,000 that make up who we are. This is caused by the genes parents pass on or affected by drugs and alcohol upon the fetus of a new born child. Down’s syndrome, the most common genetic disease formerly known as mongolism, "occurs one in every six hundred births throughout the world" ( Storm 102). It is caused by chromosomal error, where there is an extra chromosome 21. Instead......

Birth of a Civilization

...Birth of a Civilization An analysis of “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” by Langston Hughes 5/26/2008 American Literature 2328-8448 Deah N. Mitchell The violation of the African civilization that is known as slavery is defined as “a submission to a dominating influence” by Merriam-Webster. There are many accounts of this practice, and many more attempts to rectify its toll on African-Americans and its long-standing consequences. One such effort is the rhythmical reflection of ancestry through artistry- specifically poetry. During the Harlem Renaissance era several African American writers emerged. One of the most prominent and successful authors was James Mercer Langston Hughes. “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” was written by Hughes at the tender age of 19. This poem is reflective of four central topics: African-American ancestry, racial pride, slavery and spirituality. The most obvious use of literary art, symbolism, plays a tremendous role in this poem and is effortlessly laced throughout the seams of this intricate ode. “I've known rivers: I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins.” According to the most widely accepted theories on the origins of man, homo sapiens’ appear to have originated in Great Rift Valley in Africa. Above the “rivers” can be interpreted as ancient African ancestry. The writer knows from handed down accounts the story of his people’s lineage. If Africa is home to all of our births......

Story

...happening to the immigrants, but they do care about what happens to them. Chavez told consumers they were eating poison and they started to listen. Chavez wanted the consumer to see and feel the dangers through his speech and facts he spoke about. He knew once they heard how the poison pesticides affect everyone, the farmers would finally stop using that poison because consumers would not buy a poisonous grape. Chavez used logos to strengthen his speech to the consumers. Logos is known as logical evidence, facts used to prove what is said. For example, Chavez talks about the five insecticides used on the grapes to keep insects off. Chavez lists the insecticides giving the poisonous effect of each. “Captan—a proven cancer causing and birth defects producing agent, Dinoseb—a highly toxic herbicide that has caused workers deaths, Methyl Bromide—a more potent mutagen than mustard gas and is highly poisonous and proven carinogen, Parathion and Phosdrin—are highly poisonous insecticids, similar to nerve gas” (Chavez par 16). Another example that Chavez uses is the Enionmental Protection Agency considers pesticide pollution its most urgent problem and noting that virtually everyone is exposed to pesticides reported by the New York Times (Chavez par. 5). Chavez knew that by naming the pesticides used in harvesting the grapes and defining what harm they do to the body people would join in on the protest to stop buying grapes. The knowledge Chavez had on the pesticides......

Birth Control

...Knepper Prof. Cousin ENGL 1613-8am class 13 October 2014 Birth Control Pills Birth control pills are used widely by women all over the world. On average, about 150 million women use birth control worldwide. Only five out of one hundred women each year who use this method are likely to get pregnant. In the United States, 62% of women use a form of contraception, and about 10.5 million of those women use birth control pills. Many women also use birth control pills to control and reduce cramping during the menstrual cycle, prevent acne, and develop stronger bones. Unfortunately, what many women do not realize is, is that birth control pills can also be very harmful to a women’s body. Birth control should be taken out of the general public to prevent women from becoming unhealthy. Birth control should be removed from public consumption because it can cause different kinds of cancer, blood clots, gall bladder disease, benign liver tumors, strokes, and high blood pressure. First off, birth control pills can cause a variety of cancers. Cancers such as breast cancer and cervical cancer may develop from taking the pill. Breast cancer is a major cancer that can develop from taking birth control pills. According to one article, “a 1996 analysis of epidemiologic data from more than 50 states worldwide by the Collaborative Group on Hormonal Factors in Breast Cancer found that women who were current or recent users of birth control pills had a slightly higher risk of......

The Birth of the Swatch

...For the exclusive use of B. Tu 9-504-096 REV: NOVEMBER 22, 2004 YOUNGME MOON The Birth of the Swatch Ten years ago, the people on the original Swatch team asked a crazy question: Why can’t we design a striking, low-cost, high-quality watch and build it in Switzerland? The bankers were skeptical. A few suppliers refused to sell us parts. They said we would ruin the industry with this crazy product. But the team overcame the resistance and got the job done. — Nicolas Hayek1 In 1993, Swatch was the best-selling watch in the history of the watch industry. In 1992 alone, it sold 27 million units, while cumulative sales surpassed 100 million units (see Exhibit 1). In addition, it was widely acknowledged that the entire Swiss watch industry had been on the brink of disaster when the Swatch had been introduced 10 years ago; the phenomenal success of the Swatch was considered by many to have been a key factor in its resurgence. At the management level, much of the credit for the turnaround had been directed toward Nicolas Hayek, CEO of the Societe Suisse de Microelectronique et d’Horlogerie (SMH), which controlled nine global Swiss brands including Swatch. Over the past 10 years, Hayek had led the way for the success of the Swatch by committing SMH to a business strategy that in many ways defied industry wisdom about how global watch companies should be run. This strategy was based on a strict commitment to vertical integration (the company assembled all of...

The Birth of a Nation

...The African Americans: The Birth of Equality after 1865 Leonard Stinson HIS204: American History Since 1865 Instructor John Durr December 5th, 2011 The African Americans: The Birth of Equality after 1865 This was a time when America was trying to find herself. These were the years known as the Reconstruction Period from 1865-1877. During this time period, the African-American people became free from slavery but one can only imagine what free really is. While the nation search for ways to establish true meaning of equality, African-American people continued to struggle to find out just what equality means and to have the same rights and freedom as the white people in the nation. Whether as slaves or free people, the political and social status of African Americans has always been to obtain the ability to participate in the nation’s economy. While many historians believe that slavery and politics can be attributed to the Civil War, more than 600,000 Americans died and with the help of the Emancipation Proclamation to start the motion to free the slaves, America became even more a divided country in 1865 than the previous earlier years (Bowles, 2011). Although freedom in the post-Civil War years did not guarantee equality, African Americans continued to struggle from racism, segregation and discrimination for many years, but the birth of equality is beginning to grow and show that all men and women are created equal.
