So, first ante-natal class this week. And first real hit of 'culture shock' for us: At some point all the couples needed to agree on a Group Contract (obviously I wasn't the only one who had no idea what this should entail - we all sat around dumbly, while the instructor populated the list with things like "Start & Finish on time" and "You don't have to answer questions if you don't want to"). At some point, someone did volunteer a point about maybe keeping mobile phones on silent or switched off. Both hubs and I immediately reached into our pockets with a guilty grin, and switched ours off. But here's the thing. Out of 30 people in the room, we were the ONLY ONES. Obviously most people here just pull the string taut and yodel into a tin can when they need to get in touch with someone in a hurry.

We also went through an exercise involving matching terms to their definitions. "What's the large muscular organ that contains the baby, amniotic fluid & placenta?". Best answer: "The Female".
