I have a variety of answers, of course, so it has been interesting. They all give different reasons so I have found it quite amusing.
So far I will go in 3 wks to my EDD with the majority saying it is a girl.
What predictions have others made for you?
Late May '09 Princess VBA2C success :
As for gender, my family has mostly guessed/wanted girl, and DH's family mostly on the boy side.
Stay-at-home mama married to my best friend of 10+ years. Aspiring midwife loving parenting our beautiful Julian, born 5/24/09. Expecting a second bean in late July 2012!
Random people come up to me and insist I am having a girl. Family all says girl too. That's kinda what I think, but I'm not sure if maybe it is just wishful thinking since this is our last and we already have 3 boys.
The worst was my mom though. She wasn't making predictions, but wanted me to tell her when the baby would be born so she could plan her calendar around it. Uhhhh, I don't know when baby is coming. Then she wanted to know if my mw had given me a time frame. Yeah, I said, from about mid-April to the end of May? Finally I just told her that I was due May 11 and was that good enough. So now she thinks I'm having the baby right around May 11. Whatever. I'll call her when i want her here I guess.
Maybe I need to revie the natural birth philosophy with her again.
For my baby shower (today, yay!) my mom is doing a game for people to guess the date of delivery and size of the baby (we know she's a girl, at least, we think we know!). It should be fun, and I thought it was cute the way she's got it set up
I've been forbidden by my best friend to go into labor before next Sunday. No one thinks I'll make it till May 26.
