So it would seem the old 'Could I be pregnant?' Has been replaced with something much more stupid.

Seriously, what's the deal with all these 'How do I break my waters safely' questions?!
It frightens me that people this stupid are creating lives.

  • Does anyone know of any person irl who has ever, ever asked that question? I personally don't. Yes, there were the old wives tales about how to help 'induce' labor, but never anything about breaking water. I don't get it.

  • Maybe we should send them a Chucky Doll to break their water! lol ;p

  • Some people should not be trusted with Chia Pets, much less children.

  • Imagine the ones that aren't asking,but actually DOING it....
    Remember all the "checking my own cervix" ones?

  • I don't know how any woman could think that reaching through her cervix to puncture the amniotic sac where her BABY lives could be safe in any way.

  • One doesn't have to be very intelligent to reproduce.

    One would think that even someone with less than average intelligence would have the common sense to NOT try to break the amniotic sac.

    Every time I think I've seen it all, someone surprises me. This was not a nice surprise.

  • I know, right? It's not a pleasant thought. If these soon-to-be moms are asking about rupturing their bags of waters, you don't like to think what plans they'll be contemplating when they get home with their innocent newborns.

    Answer by Ballad at 7:24 PM on Dec. 9, 2013

  • True that. I want to tell them to hand me the baby and quietly step away. I wouldn't want to go through diapers and midnight feedings and teething again, but I know that I'd rather do it and know the baby is safe than think that I know there is a baby in danger. Kwim?
