Thanks to the 37 of you who voted in our gender prediction poll. I'm actually surprised that 41% think we're having a girl and 59% thing it's a boy. That's actually a bit closer than I thought it would be. But that's ok, that's what keeps it exciting :)
Gender prediction is a funny thing. Everyone has their "theories" on whether it's a boy or a girl and why. i.e. How
high am I carrying? Did I have morning sickness? Does my face
look fuller? Do my shoulders lean more to the right? Did my hair
turn orange? Ok, I made those last two up. I welcome everyone's
predictions whether they be for a boy or girl because it just makes it
fun. Now that I've come to terms with not finding out the
gender, I have to admit that it is kind of fun and exciting not
knowing. It's preventing me from buying every cute boy or girl outfit or
accessory I see, and I'm not having any trouble keeping things gender
neutral so far. I'm definitely embracing our Team Green decision!
For the first few months, most people who gave me their predictions said "I think you're having a boy" When I'd ask them "Why?" they usually responded with something like "Because girls take the mother's beauty, and you still look so good!" Mannny people said this exact same thing to me and it was very sweet and I won't lie...comforting, to hear.
But then...a few people recently started saying "Oh...I think you're having a girl!!"
Great...does that mean I look like shit? Is my beauty being taken from me?! If the standard is "boy means you are still pretty, girl means you aren't" isn't is just kind of insulting to tell someone you think they're having a girl?
Obviously, I don't go home and cry myself to sleep when someone predicts
girl. Like I said before, this is all in good fun. I just find some of it funny and can't wait to prove some of these theories right or wrong this November!
