Boy or girl?
That’s the first question I always get when people see my tummy, “are you having a boy or girl?” or “I hope it’s a girl; I’ll be praying for you.”
When people ask if I am praying for a girl, I always say no. Why? Well, I am hoping for a girl not praying because at this point if it’s a boy, no amount of prayer will change my baby into a girl.
Normally, I don’t bother checking the sex of my unborn baby but with this child the curiosity has been overwhelming, so I checked … like 6 times! The first four times the doctor was like “sorry baby’s legs are closed and can’t see anything”. Of course when I told my mum she was like yes, that means its a girl; ladies always close their legs. My mum in-law (who wants me to have a girl more than I do) chastised me for even trying to check because she has already seen me carrying a girl in one of her dreams.
However, what happened the 5th and 6th time I checked left me confused as one doctor saw a girl and the other saw a boy! I am therefore back to square one, boy or girl? I told my mum in-law about the boy scan mainly because every time she saw me, she kept on talking about “our baby girl”. She was totally devastated when I told her
“no don’t say that, confess positive not negative (lol). Eh, how can you say they saw a boy? It’s a mistake oh! God gives us what we want it can’t be a boy”.
I had to start comforting the poor woman. Who am I to complain about Gods blessings, when people are struggling to even conceive one baby?
At this point though, I still hope it’s a girl.
I don’t care that much about it, all I pray for is a healthy and happy baby!
