Meksmama, yes, this is the first grandchild for both my parents and for ILs. Luckily they all live 3,000 miles away so won't actually be here much to deliver their advice.
Welcome and congratulations, peacemamalove!
I don't want to start a debate at all, but I'm genuinely curious about something, and I'd love to hear people's opinions. I've heard lots of women (not on MDC, just in general) saying that they are having a gender scan or that they want to find out the gender of their unborn baby. This makes no sense to me because I believe that sex is a biological characteristic and gender is a social construct. So I'm wondering if I'm overreacting and being nitpicky about word choice when people really don't mean anything by it. I'm totally willing to accept that this is my own personal issue (I am very particular about word choice and such generally), but I am wondering what other mamas think.
