This is slightly a rant and slightly a blog post of confusion. I’ve heard not once, not even twice but MULTIPLE times people ask me if I know what I’m having. As in boy or girl, I know I’m having a baby! I find this odd because I have no clue what I’m having and have no idea how one would know what they are having either.
I read a blog about a woman who is married and has one toddler and another on the way and she has a “feeling” that her second child is a boy. You can read her blog post here: http://marriageconfessions.com/2010/10/07/i-dont-wanna-2/
What I want to know is this: How does one have a “feeling” or “just know” especially on their first child? I get it, its a 50/50 shot at being right but how could you know if you have never experienced this before. I would LOVE your insight or opinion if you have one.
Personally, I don’t have this overwhelming feeling that baby Herron is a boy or that baby Herron is a girl. I do know that I’m having a baby!
***As an update***
I was participating in a focus group today (10/27) and one of the other participants told me she had a feeling about what she was having both times when she was pregnant. I brought up my “feeling” about the feeling and she told me that she would post things to her blog and other moms would tell her, oh that means you are having a boy or oh that means you are having a girl. For example, she had food aversion to meats when she was pregnant with her daughter and apparently that is pretty common. Maybe I’m having a girl because I’m completely grossed out by meat. Not a feeling…just another old wives tale!
