[Homestead] Sarah's Choice

I honestly can't believe this started on basically gossip and high
school kids' rumor..lol..I would have thought that some nurse or some
worker somewhere spilled the beans.
When I was in the 10th grade, I took World History. My WH teacher always
wrapped up in a blanket as it was cold in that part of the school. She
would sit at her desk, wrapped in a blanket, and lecture. She would
always pre-write proper names and places and important information on
the board, so she never got up. When Mrs. Dooley was out of work one
day, the big shocker was that she had a baby. Everyone was shocked. No
one, not even her coworkers, knew she was pregnant, and that was here in
the South! I can imagine that happening in the North much easier
because of the clothing people wear. Not everyone gains a huge amount
of weight. I gained 16 pounds with one and 21 pounds with my second.
My 'bump' was basketball sized and confined to my belly. I have also
known people who have had children literally 8 months apart. If Sarah
was pregnant and Trig is hers, then her behavior after going into labor
seems suspicious to me

Maybe she got pregnant twice and decided not to do this a second time?

At age 20, the risk is 1 in 2000
At age 40 the risk is 100.
It apparently can happen to younger women.

Maybe. If her water did break and she did fly back without getting
checked or without notifying the authorities, then I would say she was
irresponsible. If the baby is Bristol's, then I would say she is a
liar, but ultra responsible.
