Over the last couple of weeks I have really started wondering if the baby is going to be a boy or a girl, not that it matters. I have an ultrasound coming up on Wednesday, and if the baby is in the right position they will be able to tell if its a boy or a girl... I always thought I didn't wanted to know, but now I'm just way too curious, so if they will be able to see - well then I want to know.
A lot of people have been asking me if I have any idea as to what sex the baby is, but no I don't! Some people don't get, they are like "But you must have a feeling!" but no I don't have a feeling... what should I feel if it's a boy? Should I feel different if it's a girl? Then there is all the old wives tales... if you don't have any morning sickness it's a boy... well then I guess it's a boy, or all the other tales... some will say it's a girl other it's a boy. My sister in law has a feeling it's a boy, my mums friend says it's a girl... what am I suppose to think it is? Well come Wednesday I'll hopefully know for sure!
Then there is the talk about baby names... well I always thought that was going to be easy. But also this is a bit different than what I expected. Let's face it... I haven't given it much thought so far, because what it the use of thinking of girls names if it's a boy and vice versa? But I don't want the baby to have a name that is too common, so there will be 3 or 4 of them in the same class, but I don't want it to be too geeky either so he or she will be teased. I always though I wanted a name that would be easily pronounced in English too, but now when I start to think about names that might be up for debate. Whenever I ask my husband he says "Frank Jr. if it's a boy and Frankie if it's a girl" I guess he has just as hard time as me coming up with a good name, and his suggestions are not even up for discussion! Let's face it Frank Junior... the picture that pops into mind is Phoebe's (friends) younger brother, and as charming as he is, that is not going to happen:)
Hopefully some of my questions will be answered by Wednesday, and then I can come up with a really great name!
