The weird things you learn when you are having a baby

First, the fact that there seems to be a lot of quiet in the pre-natal scan waiting room, despite it being full. I guess this is the crossroads or meeting point of all the various complications and difficulties that come with pregnancy. The difficulty of the whole process, the pains, changes, insecurities, dangers, unwanted pregnancies, fathers who didn't want to be: these all help to keep the noise levels oddly, to my mind, low. Eerily low. Eve's "difficulty in childbirth" remains to this day.

Second: who would have thought that pram theft is estimated at £60 million per year in the UK? Sure, some setups cost close to £1000, but £60mill/annum for a population of 60 million?
