So here's the latest news on the kapgar 2.0 front.
Basically, there is no news as there is no baby. And there is no baby because there is zero dilation and zero effacing ("effacement"?). Because there is zero of those two very vital things, the doctor doesn't want to rush it with inducing the baby.
As a result of this situation, we won't be trying to induce Katie until, as the doctor says, "between weeks 41 and 42." Week 41 begins this coming Saturday. We have an appointment to have Katie induced on Sunday evening. When that happens, we will stay at the hospital in anticipation of it not really taking much time at all.
So, there will definitely be a baby either late on Sunday the 23rd or early Monday the 24th. Either of those situations, though, negate the cute little "Virgo" onesie we bought for the baby. Damn. And they no longer sell them so we can't get one for Libra.
This does not mean, however, that we can't still have one "the normal way" prior to that time. All we can do is wait and see.
The other night, Katie and I went out to dinner with my parents and my dad, being as strange as he is, threw this question out there (please don't ask for context as I cannot remember how it came up)...
If two same-sex people, who were first cousins, wanted to get married in a state where gay marriage was legal, could they?
Get past the ridiculousness of it all and think it through. The reason for banning first cousin marriages is because of the genetic issues that would arise from the breeding of two people with such similar DNA.
Two same-sex first cousins couldn't have children via intercourse with each other. So, taking that into consideration, could they legally get married?
Things that make you go hmmmm...
