The Gender Bender*
I've had a couple of people ask me over on Facebook and right here on the blog if we're going to find out the gender of this wee little baby, you know, the one in my tummy.
For each of my other pregnancies we have indeed jumped at the chance to discover the gender of our unborn babies. We've relished the opportunity to 'get to know' them while they dwell in-utero. To narrow down the list of names and to prayerfully ponder all that they may become.
This time though, we've decided to keep it a secret.
There is so much we already know about birth** and parenting (and even more we don't know) and I suppose the thought of a little bit of 'unknown' is appealing to us this time.
So, we will have a girl baby or a boy baby (but not one of each, there's only one in there).
Did you find out the gender of your babies?
Tell me, what do you think i'm having?
*ooh gosh, what linguistic mastery I display
**i'll be having a planned c-section this time and i'll be writing about it a little later on.
EDIT: please note that in no way do Dave and I think that one way is more right or wrong, more or less fun or more or less admirable. For us it's a personal choice and we've chosen both at various times. Babies are always awesome and always surprising.
