Lindsey Bever, The Washington Post Published 4:58 pm PDT, Tuesday, March 19, 2019 In the final weeks of her pregnancy, Joy Buckley had been sleeping on the couch to avoid climbing the stairs to the bedroom. It had become harder to breathe. Her bladder was being squished. And, she said, she had to eat eight small meals a day because she could not fit much food in her stomach at one time. She knew her soon-to-be born daughter, Harper, was going to be large - the baby had run out of room, and Buckley had no more to give her. "The both of us were very, very uncomfortable," she said. Buckley said in a phone interview Tuesday with The Washington Post that by 38 weeks, her doctor saw no reason to make her continue to wait. So hours before sunrise March 12, the 31-year-old from Corning, New York, went to deliver the baby through a planned C-section, she said. She said it took two doctors at Arnot Ogden Medical Center - one pushing down on Buckley and one pulling Harper out from … [Read more...] about A mom gave birth to a 15-pound baby and ‘felt like I had been hit by two tractor-trailers’

(Reuters) - Following are five big themes likely to dominate thinking of investors and traders in the coming week and the Reuters stories related to them.1/A (BREXIT) RECKONING Prime Minister Theresa May's long-awaited Brexit deal triggered a wave of ministerial resignations that has rocked her government and financial markets and raised chances of a snap election. gi The pound took the hardest beating. Traders who had hung back from big sterling bets for much of 2018 rushed to sell it, fuelling its biggest daily drop against the euro since 2016. Gilt yields tumbled too and the FTSE index, which usually rises when sterling falls, lost that inverse correlation and closed flat after Thursday's mayhem. One-month implied volatility on sterling -- basically a gauge of how much traders expect it to swing in a given period -- has climbed to over 15 percent. Not only is that double the volatility of the euro and almost triple yen and Swiss franc levels, it has now entered territory reserved … [Read more...] about Take Five: Black Friday shoppers to Brexit wreckage, world markets themes for the week ahead

Mr. Kemp had been expected to meet Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate, in a Sunday evening debate that was to be broadcast live. But the fate of the 5 p.m. debate in Atlanta was cast into doubt when Mr. Trump’s campaign set a rally in Macon, about 100 miles to the southeast, for 4 p.m. WSB-TV, the Atlanta station organizing the debate, which had been scheduled since at least mid-September, said Wednesday that Mr. Kemp’s campaign “informed us they are unable to make” the original time. The station said that it was seeking an alternative time for the debate, the second and final forum … [Read more...] about Trump’s Georgia Visit Scrambles Plans for Final Debate

Riding in the back of an S.U.V. last month, he was responding to criticism raised by both Democrats and Republicans that his swift rise made him a political opportunist who was looking ahead to a Senate bid when he ran for attorney general two years ago. “That’s a hard no,’’ he said, as he headed to a campaign stop at a factory in Springfield. “It was not anything — no, that was not on the brain.” It is a sensitive subject for Mr. Hawley, who … [Read more...] about Republicans Had a Plan for Josh Hawley in Missouri.
