    While the nurse seemed rude you have to understand that medical people see a gigantic cross-section of the general population and thus may seem rude when they are actually a product of their environment. You are both very young and babies aren't cheap....most often such young couples with kids face a long tough financical struggle if they aren't realistic about it. My father was an engineer whose salary would never have supported 4 girls on its own so my mother worked as well. Nurses especially deal with a lot of harsh reality in hospitals...so forgive her bluntness as I'm sure she meant well in her own way since it's a damn difficult and unenviable job.

    • bah, people should just learn to think before they speak.

      on the cord note, the doctor asked me and I was like "whatever, just let me get back to my daughter already." it seemed strange to be focusing on the wrong side of the room once she was born.

      at any rate, congrats. fatherhood is wonderful.
      • That hasn't stopped geeks from saying dumb things or posting porn to mailing lists. It's no worse than people asking just marrieds if the bride is pregnant or asking singletons how their love life is....irritating but not worth getting your panties in a bunch over.
