Interesting rescue video. You may notice that after the car is raised to a certain point it starts to slide sideways instead of being raised further. SS

The driver-side door swings open as they lift the passenger side. That door prevents the car from being tilted more.

Edited to add article about the aftermath. Wear helmets, guys.

I came across this money saving suggestions for families dealing with young babies. It's worth posting if it is of any use. It's at lest worth looking into. Maybe someone will find it's BS or not the best deal. SS

Members of Amazon Mom, a free program aimed at parents and caregivers, get 30 percent off selected diapers and wipes when they use Amazon's Subscribe and Save purchase option. "That can make Amazon's price-per-diaper pretty hard to beat," says Angie Wynne, who tracks the best deals at BabyCheapSkate.com. Signing up for Subscribe and Save means you'll receive regular delivery of an item every one, two, three, or six months but you can cancel a shipment at any time. A 192-count package of Huggies Snug 'n' Dry for Size 1-2 recently cost $30.65 at Wal-Mart.com, but the Amazon Mom Subscribe and Save price was $20.90, with free shipping. Assuming you purchased about a dozen packages a year for a typical 1-year-old, you'd pay about $250 at Amazon Mom versus $367 at Wal-Mart over the course of a year.

Just something I found through FaceBook, I just had to share.
I bet there are enough nerds here to appreciate this as much as I do...

My second child, Eulabee Frida Wieland, born December 1st. 7 lb. 1 oz, 18 inches. I got home from the hospital yesterday. Both of us are healthy and recovery fine. *happy*

For those interested, here's the birth story summary: 12 hours of prelabor (mild contractions every 10 minutes. Started at 2am and I got no sleep that night.) 4 hours of more intense, frequent active labor at home, followed by trip to hospital. Epidural and 4 more hours of waiting for complete dilation. Pushing began around 10pm on Nov. 30. Tried for 2 and a half hours (with a break in the middle to recharge.) Baby's head was turned funny and couldn't get around part of my pelvic bone. Doctor came with the vacuum and we tried that, but no luck. Doc recommended c-section. During c-section, doc discovered that I'd had a uterine rupture (the scar on my uterus from the last c-section had completely opened up. EXTREMELY dangerous - can easily lead to death or brain damage of child and death or serious injury to mother.) Thankfully, baby's position prevented any damage to either of us. Had I successfully delivered her vaginally, my life and health would have been in critical danger. My recovery so far is very painful. However, I and Eulabee are both totally fine. And very lucky.

Marf:

Mazel tov, Marf! I'm so happy to hear that both mother and baby are doing fine. (The pain will pass.) And welcome to the world, Eubalee Frida!!!

You drive home that point that a home childbirth after a section is sheer insanity! I'm sure you will have more to say on that, that you haven't already said, later.

Thanks for the update. Take it easy. Sleep when you can. You know the drill!
