Congratulations Scalpel! I will be finding out at my 20 week ultrasound on March 14 if the baby cooperates.

The nurse/teacher was very old-school and REPEATEDLY used the word "Dads." Over and over again. Like, "So, Dads, what would you do?" And "Now remember Dads, such and such is an important job!" After the 3rd or 4th time, I looked at DP and said "Should we just go? Because we are totally invisible in this room." We stayed, and we didn't say anything, and I don't know if either was the right choice.
I know I can't run away and quit every time someone tries to illegitimize our family. I know that at every PTA meeting, every soccer game, every chorus concert, there will be someone who doesn't believe our family is as good as theirs. But it hurts. And it sucks. And we have no other option but to go back to that sucky class because it's the only one that's offered and I have NO IDEA HOW TO GIVE BIRTH. I know the teacher wasn't doing it on purpose, and she was actually filling in for the "real" teacher. If the new one isn't any better, we will have to discuss the issue with her. Whew...
In more exciting news, our friends are throwing us a shower/brunch this weekend, and it should be really fun. Lots of friends from all over are coming in for the occasion, and we'll get to touch base and hang out and relax and have a nice time. Plus, there will be cake.
Re new thread manager (as I think Angela's away) - can we just keep using this thread, or do you have to have a new thread every month or something? Or for someone to take over thread keeping responsibilities from Angela a new thread needs to be started? Anyway, I'm the only one that volunteered so I guess I should start a new one? I'll do that tomorrow or something because I don't have time now...
