Firstly, I suppose I should say, yes, we are going to find out. I know people are really divided on this issue. A lot of people would rather keep it a surprise. Our take on it is this: It is still going to be a big freakin surprise on Friday. We have no idea what it is, so when we find out, how exciting! Plus, we would like to be able to prepare for the baby's arrival and it seems a bit more personal when you already know if it's a boy or girl, or at least it does to us. Also, our whole house is painted lemon yellow and mint green, and I hate it, so gender neutral colours are not high on my list of things I like. And lastly, Hubby and I are having a heck of a time trying to find names. At least this can narrow the field by 50% and increase our odds of finding something that will work.
We are unsure as to what we think Peanut is. At first we both strongly felt baby was a girl. But in the last couple of weeks, I think I have swung my thinking and starting assuming boy. Maybe this is some subconscious way of trying to even out the expectations so we are just overjoyed at the news, and not disappointed. Not that we would be disappointed, far from it. We are just hoping for a healthy baby, whether it's a boy or girl is sort of the icing on the cake, you know? But still, I can see if we assume the baby is a girl, and it turns out to be a boy, that we will have that first instinct of "we were wrong" instead of "oh awesome!". Anyway, stream of consciousness rant there...sorry.
We were at Sobey's yesterday and we saw this little girl dressed up as a princess shopping with her parents. Hubby and I both thought it was really cute. I said to him "if our little girl wants to dress up as a princess to go shopping, then we are totally going to let her". He agreed. At the same time we both said "or if our son wants to dress as a princess". It's so nice to know we are on the same page, and really, when it comes down to it, either way it's going to be a hell of a fun ride!
So, Hubby and I would like to know: do you think we are having a boy or a girl?
