As I said last time, I have my anatomy scan coming up this week, so I thought I’d poll those around me and see what they thought about the sex of my future baby. Here’s what they had to say:
Husband: Girl. He’s a radiation worker, and tells me most radiation workers tend to have girls. Some science thing. He’s sticking with girl (even though I know he wants it to be a boy).
Sister: Girl. She had a dream it was a girl, and she really wants it to be a girl, mostly because she thinks our father would be so great with a baby girl. (She’s right, he was great with us, and a baby girl would be so lucky to have him for a grandfather.)
Dad: “No idea. I am Excited.”
Grandmom: Boy. For some reason, whenever she thinks of it, she just can’t help but think of it as a boy. No logical or whatever reason, just instinct.
Grandpop: Doesn’t have a feeling either way, but is hoping for a girl.
Bestie: Boy. She thinks it already looks like I’m carrying pretty low even though it’s still only a small bump, and it just is a feeling for her.
Me: I REALLY want a boy, and I have no shame in saying that. I’ll be happy and love whatever I pop out, but I love the idea of having a boy first, and always have. That being said, when I talk about the baby, I subconsciously say her/she, and have been saying that for weeks now.
After my last post, and a lot of thinking, I’m now leaning towards probably finding out. I think. So I guess we’ll see next week what I decide 😉
