When we would visit I felt as though I was swimming in a sea of boys, which was great for the "cool aunt." For the record they never called me a cool aunt I just assumed. Anyway, his sisters both always joked that Eric and I would be the ones to give a girl to the family...then one of his sisters beat us to the punch. Good thing our one and only niece is such a charmer or we might begrudge her.
When I was pregnant with Cordelia I was certain that I was having a girl. I just knew it. I felt as though I had always known that our first child would be a girl. We did have a boy name picked out, but I was reasonably certain it wouldn't be put to use.
This time around I really have no sense of the gender of this baby, at all. One day I am sure that it is a girl and then the next day it is absolutely a boy. So I have concluded two things 1)I am not psychic 2)I really and truly don't have a preference about the gender of this baby.
With that said I can't wait to find out the gender of this little one who is dancing around my interior. We find out on Thursday morning.
Do you want to get in on the guessing game? I know many of you have voted on the sidebar, but now is the time to do away with anonymity. It is time to stand proud behind your guess. Leave a comment with your guess at the gender of this baby. The winner will be randomly selected from those who guessed correctly...and if you win you will be getting your very own copy of Simple Sewing for Baby.
For those of you who want to know here is a little info that will add fuel to the old wives tales:
- The heartbeat has been in the high 150s.
- I am carrying neither high nor low, right in the middle.
- I have had cravings for bell peppers, pickles,chocolate and one day I desperately wanted a fuzzy navel (don't worry I abstained).
- The baby is active and kicking low.
I think that should do it. Join in the fun!
