LOL!  I worked in the library while in high school and spent years doing engineering.  It makes perfect sense to me.  If your wife is still pregnant, your wife could have a sign:  +3 2/3  or +3.666

Chinese families are arranged around birth order.  Everyone relates to everyone else based on their, and their parent’s birth order.  If you are the first born and have several siblings who have children, their children will have different names for you depending upon your sibling’s sex.  If those same children were to refer to your youngest sibling they would have different names again.  By comparison, we just call our parent’s siblings aunt or uncle depending on their sex.  The Chinese seem to be able to keep it straight but for anyone trying to learn, it is a pain.
