Things about Rescue Me, and the next few episodes. : LUSENET : ER Discussions : One Thread

I just watched Rescue Me, and boy, was it good. Just one problem at the end of it, Mark didn't tell Elizabeth about the tumor, and I checked NBC media village, adn it says that it's repeats for the next three weeks. If that's true, I don't think I'm gonna be able to go on :) NOOOOO, its not fair. After weeks of new episodes, now, of all the times, we have to go with the reruns. It just isn't fair :)

Oh Well


P.S Does anyone know if Ming=Na had her baby yet? I heard her duedate was November 10.

Actually only one repeat - AITF next week. Then two new episodes, and two more repeats. And according to her website, Ming-Na hasn't had her baby yet.

-- Lindsay (, November 23, 2000.

For those who may think that Ming-Na should have had her baby by now it's not uncommon to be pregnant for 9 and a half months or longer. I was two weeks late and my friend Kelly was a month late.

-- Cammie (, November 23, 2000.

Let me rephrase that. Sorry. What I meant to say was that I was born two weeks late and my friend Kelly was born a month late.

-- Cammie (, November 23, 2000.

That's nothing Cammie. My friend Sarah told me she was born two months late.

-- Andie (, November 23, 2000.

She was born two months late and not induced? Wow.

-- Mary (, November 23, 2000.

What, were her parents Christian Scientists or something? Or some other religion that doesn't allow for medical attention?

-- Cecelia (, November 23, 2000.

Andie, I think your friend Sarah may have pulled a fast one on you. 2 months? I have never heard of that. Sounds like she's just trying to be cool or something.

-- Cammie (, November 23, 2000.

What happened at the end of "Rescue Me?" My tape cut short right before Mark was going to say, "I love you too."

-- Kimberley (, November 24, 2000.

Hey guys just to let you know that a "normal" pregnacy lasts any where from 40- 42 weeks. which is around 10 months. Most people who go past their due date actually have miscalculated their last period and implantation. Anything past 2 weeks they would not allow because certain biological things can go wrong. So who ever told you that they were born 2 months overdue was seriously pulling your leg.

-- Heather (, November 24, 2000.

Kimberely, you didn't miss anything, really. Mark hugs Elizabeth and says "I love you, too." He then smiles and then makes this face somewhere between pained and saddened...and the screen goes black.

Don't you hate it when VCR's do that? Mine does that all the time! So I program the end time later and later...

-- Jen (, November 24, 2000.

Heather, could you explain more about the biological risk, or give an address with more about the subject, please? Thank you.

I was born 6 1/2 weeks early

-- Katie (, November 24, 2000.

Regarding going much past 42 weeks--there is a decrease in amniotic fluid. Obviously the baby cannot survive without enough fluid, so levels are watched carefully after 40 weeks. In addition, the baby may get too large . . . I've had two children at 42 weeks, and believe me, you are ready to sell your soul to the devil if he'd only put you into labor. Sometimes things do fail to progress, which would lead to an induction.

Just a sidenote--I'm currently expecting twins and my doctor has told me 35 weeks is the target. If we can get there, he'll determine the babies to be full term and ready for delivery ;-)


-- Kathy (, November 24, 2000.

Jen, you forgot about the last scene with Abby & Maggie exiting the ER and Maggie says "Happy Thanksgiving" to Carter.

-- abigail (, November 24, 2000.

My friend told me this tidbit.

After 40-42 weeks, sometimes mom's body decides baby is done and shuts off the oven before the door gets opened. Blood supply to the baby is cut off, and the baby could die. Result, stillbirth. My friend was monitored closely when her first baby was late and she was eventually induced. Her second baby was also induced. Apparently her body likes being pregnant. (That was our little joke anyway.)

-- S. Trelles (, November 24, 2000.

Somebody at the ER ng tipped us off--at Ming-na's official website she said she's expecting her baby "any minute." Maybe they'll induce if she hasn't had it yet? At her website she also mentioned her brother (I think) was getting married this weekend. What an eventful week she's having, onscreen and off :-) Good luck to the person here who said she's expecting twins. My niece has twins. That's a really special experience.


-- Amy (, November 24, 2000.

abigail, thanks! i always leave something out... (sigh) :)

-- Jen (, November 26, 2000.

Jen, you were right. ER ends with Mark saying "I love you too" to Elizabeth. The scene with Abby and Maggie preceded that one. Just in case you thought you were loosing your mind (brain tumor or something else... ;-))

-- Manon (, November 26, 2000.

Kathy: Expecting twins! Congratulations! Do you know the sex? Any names picked out (like, maybe, Kate and Tess?) We had our daughter two weeks early this July and named her Tessa. I watched Great Expectations while I was in labor! Good luck to you!

-- Stacy (, November 27, 2000.

Congrats Stacy on your new baby; Tessa is an adorable name. We're pretty confident that the babies are both girls, but at the most recent ultrasound it looked a little iffy ;-) Hopefully we'll get another peek soon! My full name is Kathryn, so mabye Kate for a middle name. I change my mind daily. Thanks for asking.

And Ming-Na must have had that kid by now . . .

-- Kathy (, November 28, 2000.

I know someone who went to 44 weeks with no problems. Many doctors are quick to intervene in normal pregnancies by induction, and in many, many instances it's totally uneccessary. If the baby is doing fine, let nature take it's course! Kathy, congrats on the twins-can I send you a newsletter? Nursing Family Magazine- email me!

-- Danette (, November 29, 2000.

44 weeks? Does anybody know what's the World's record for being pregnant? 44 weeks, wow, Nature can be sadic sometimes, I guess.
