I thought of it as pregnancy being a volume overload state, which causes dilated cardiomyopathy.

Not sure if this was the correct reasoning, but other comments seem very detailed.

Falling on outstretched hand: scaphoid is most common one to be fractured, lunate is most common to be dislocated. Lunate dislocation can cause acute carpal tunnel syndrome.

Think of the mnemonic "Straight Line To Pinky, Here Comes The Thumb" for the bones of the palm, drawing a football shape starting below the thumb MCP joint adjacent to the radius, then moving to your medial wrist, and then back to the thumb.

Scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum, pisiform, hamate, capitate, trapezoid, trapezium. The lunate looks like it's posteriorly dislocated here.

sympathetikey  Yep. I didn't even look at the X-ray. +1  
dr.xx  loonies love lunate +1  
wes79  she landed on her "right hand", but the X-ray is showing a left hand?? +  
wes79  i legit have no idea whats going on in that xray lol +1  
nbme4unme  X-ray confused the hell out of me, I was going to put lunate based on Q stem but ended up putting Pisiform because it looks like that's what's messed up in the photo? Should have ignored the picture haha. +  
nwinkelmann  for @dr.xx, love your mnemonic. I added to it, or at least found an explanation on why it works. "loonies love lunate" and "loonies" are "dislocated" from reality. +1  
doctorevil  She Looks Too Pretty, Try To Catch Her is a mnemonic that works for me. +
