Some worrisome news out of Rays camp this morning as it was announced that Evan Longoria has left the team to be with his girlfriend, Jaime Edmondson, who is being induced into labor six weeks early. They originally had a due date of April 1 for their daughter.
There is no word yet on what may have caused the doctors to choose this route. But having gone through two pregnancies in our family, I can tell you a doctor would not induce this early unless there were complications.
From what I understand, the two most common reasons for inducing at this stage are Preeclampsia, which is a situation in which the mother has developed high-blood pressure, and intrauterine growth restriction, which just means the baby is not as big as the doctors would like.
I am not trying to speculate on what happened here. And really, it is none of our business. But there are a lot of Rays fans that are concerned and wondering what is going on. And I am just explaining some of the more common reasons why this might have happened.
So keep Longoria and Edmondson in your thoughts today and let’s hope everything is ok.
