More Green in the world!

            This next spring we will be expanding our family once again! This baby (we think) is due sometime in March. Which is about the time we will be in the States anyway. The more I know about Russian medicine the less I want to have a baby here. A baby was just born to some friends in Minsk. She had a 8 lb 5 ounce baby. It was her first so she was having a little trouble getting it out so the nurses, in an attempt to help, pushed on the woman's stomach, and caused the baby nerve damage in his shoulder.

            Prenatal visits are about as much as I can put up with.  Visits to the doctor when I was pregnant with Adele' were a culture shock everytime I went. There is no concept of privacy no attempt at preserving a woman's dignity. The bathroom doesn't have a door on it the door to the doctors observation (?) room (whatever you would call it) didn't close and it was open to another room where people were free to walk in and out as they pleased.  And actually Russian people really don't care. Once a woman stood up in the waiting room and began to undress herself. They would kind of chuckle at me when I asked them to close the door, I can't imagine what having a baby would be like but I would really rather not try it.

You think it's a baby? That would be pretty amazing if you gave birth to a bicycle.
