To me this is a bit of a daft question. I just used to reply a baby! "Yes but what does it feel like you're having?" Really? I don't know!
I don't know if it will be different when I fall pregnant again, I'm assuming I would have similar symptoms if expecting another girl and different if a boy? It's not guaranteed though is it, our scans were inconclusive and we had two due to Tia not wanting to be scanned at all. We had no idea the engender of our baby. But to be honest, I loved not knowing. We brought minimal clothing, just a few basics that we knew we would need in lemons and white. Had I known we were having a girl it would have been a much different story, I would have brought a stupid amount of stuff because it was cute and girly and it would have been a waste. Tia lived in sleepsuits as they were simple, easy to change and I adore babies in them. There's just something about a baby in a sleepsuit that makes them look baby.
Yeah she had some beautiful sets brought for her, but she rarely wore them, she did wear a lot of dresses as I found these easy too.
When we had Tia, our flat turned into a sea of pink. Everyone brought her something pink and girly. Most of it was worn once if at all, so I guess what I'm saying is. You don't need a million outfits for your new baby, they normally sick on them in minutes anyway! :-/
My husband at the beginning was adamant we were having a boy, then changed his mind to girl. I literally had no idea, I mean does anyone really know unless told? I would seriously love to know. They only thing that stands out to me as maybe knowing, was this dress I brought. That's right, I brought a dress for my baby when I never knew the sex! It was beautiful, and my baby would have their first party invite at a month old so I knew it would be worn (if a girl) I had spotted it in my local supermarket when doing the weekly shop and fell in love. Of course I never brought it, that would be silly. What if I had a baby boy?
A few weeks later my sister, who is was three months behind my in her pregnancy found out she was having a girl. Yay! I was going to be an auntie, a baby nice! Soon after finding out, I was on yet another weekly food shop (I'm sure I do these weekly!) when I saw that dress again, only this time it had been reduced. Down to £4 from £12, I just had to buy it! If baby finn was a boy then it could go to his cousin and no one need know any different. My husband thought I was mad when I showed him, he just shook his head and mumbled something about his boy not being happy with that and hormones. So I'm wondering, did I "know" I was having a girl? I don't think so. I just think I see a beautiful bargain that I knew wouldn't be wasted.
I would so love to know your thought on this, did you "know"? How did you react to questions asked?
