Are you expecting a boy or a girl?

Years ago, moms didn’t know if they were going to have a boy or a girl when they were pregnant. Many didn’t know if they were even going to have twins. They just didn’t have the choice of knowing. I only had one ultrasound when I was pregnant with my firstborn, and I believe it was too early then to tell. And I never even asked. Instinctively I knew I was having a boy though, because I wanted a girl. I was eighteen and a single mom and didn’t think I would know how to raise a boy. Leave it to the Law of Attraction to give me a boy because I “knew” I was having one!

I knew the twins would be girls because I had several ultrasounds with them. Knowing they were girls also was helpful to the doctors as preemie girls usually do better than preemie boys. Usually. My girls had other plans, but I “knew” they’d be fine in the long run, and they are!

I ended up having an amniocentesis with my youngest daughter, so I have the chromosome images to prove she’s a girl! And now a way higher percentage of parents find out the gender of their unborn baby over waiting to see. One way to find out is through a baby gender prediction chinese calendar.
