I forgot it was set in a different hospital. It seemed more graphic this time round.
I was getting upset about the young guy who missed the birth, but then he started carrying on like a pork chop and I stopped feeling as sorry for him. i would have wanted my mum there as well I think.

Ah missed it.  Is this a new series?

I didn't notice it was a different hospital...

The young guy was such a ......hmmm..... dunno...... he kept saying how he had needed to grow up....yes, well you still do A LOT!  Poor baby, getting smooched by someone who was smoking heaps of cigarettes. His carry on was atrocious.

Loved the army guy's smile. Glad he got to meet his little girl before he left for Afghanistan.

Looking forward to next week's show too.....

I always cry when the babies are born.... always. Well actually thats not true, didn't feel much when watching the US version. In fact the US version was too weird for me and only watched two episodes.

I blubbed like a baby as usual whilst watching this. Every time I watch an episode I am in awe of what a woman's body does when birthing. Cluck, cluck, cluck! Time for baby number two me thinks!

I love this show!

Although I may still have issues re DS birth last year - I was getting so angry when they mentioned the forceps....

DP was squirming and covering his eyes when the second couples daughter was birthed, whereas I was watching and swooning and weeping with happiness and cluckiness happy.gif

Totally agree, that young bloke was being such a goose!

He was quite emotional but there was no one giving him accurate information. He didn't realise he was going to miss the actual birth so he was upset about that and then he just had the mother come back to tell him that something went wrong and he was totally left in the dark. I don't blame him for being upset.
I thought he was wonderfully supportive.

I couldn't figure out how he didn't realise that by not choosing to go into theatre that he would miss the birth. He was quite clear when he said, I don't mind who you choose.

He punched two walls and then screamed about needing a drink and was about to head off the nearest pub except his parents talked him back.

I don't call that supportive.

#18 purplekishi

Posted 11 October 2012 - 10:28 PM

I'd be concerned that he might punch other things than walls in the future.

He flew off the handle and walked out before the baby's grandmother had finished explaining to him what was happening with the baby - because it was ALL about him - not his girlfriend and not the baby - him.  Selfish, violent little git that he was.

Oh Katrina, I'm so sorry. It must have bought back so many painful memories. I'm sure Colter is looking down at you right now wishing you love and light.

I haven't watched it yet  but the story about the guy punching walls is familiar, is this a repeated series?


#23 Marchioness Flea

Posted 12 October 2012 - 07:21 AM

I agree Fancie, i wonder how he'll react when the baby breaks something of his, or won't sleep through the night for months...
