I asked my doctor if a fetus could do any real damage. He paused and then said, "Well, yeah." Then he sort of mubmled, like he didn't want to tell us the rest. But he finally said, "They can break ribs, bruise your internal organs, cause internal bleeding . . ."
I said, "Um . . . is there anything you can do?"
He said, "No, not really. But if you think she's broken one of your ribs, let us know."
I told him he was a wicked, wicked, man.
