Is it a Girl or a Boy?

Hello there!! Quite pleased to have found some time to update my rather neglected blog tonight, hehe.

So, I’m having my second ultrasound scan next week to check that the baby is developing normally and look at where the placenta is lying in my uterus. I just had a read at the things they will check and assess during this anatomy slash anomaly scan and it’s starting to freak me out a little of the things that could possibly go wrong with the development of the baby. 😮 Praying hard that everything is A-okay and that the baby is healthy and growing well!

Now, the added bonus to next week’s scan is that we can choose to find out the gender of the baby!!! Honestly, my initial reaction was that I had to find out! I just had to. I was just so filled with curiosity and excitement that I couldn’t wait to find out if we’re having a girl or a boy! And I still am!

However, the husband’s thinking of the total opposite. He said that as long as the baby’s healthy, it doesn’t matter if the baby’s a boy or a girl, which I fully agree with! He then asked, why not have it as a surprise? BUT I WANT TO KNOW NOWWW IF I COULD!!!!!! You can tell that I was quite determined to know the sex of the baby.

Until this morning. 🙄 My curiosity led me to type “should I find out the gender of my baby?” in my Google search bar, lol. I then took this short quiz and this was the result I got:

Prepare for a surprise! It sounds as if you should probably wait until your baby is born to find out his or her sex. This is how people have been doing it for centuries, and there’s no reason to change now. Unlike so many people nowadays, you seem to have the patience and knack for “living in the moment” that’s necessary to remain in the dark about your baby’s sex.There are definitely benefits to not finding out. By waiting, you can spend the rest of your pregnancy having fantasies about babies of both sexes; this can actually make the last few weeks more bearable. And here’s an extra benefit: Deciding not to find out might drive your relatives crazy!

HAHAHAHA!!! So instead of driving myself crazy, I will have the benefit of driving others crazy now! 😛

So, the husband and I had a chat tonight and decided that we are not going to find out the gender of our baby, until we meet him/her on the BIG day! (Or when the doctor exclaims, “IT’S A GIRL!!!” or “IT’S A BOY!!!” when the baby’s out hahahahaha!)

Either way, we are preparing to be SURPRISED!!!
