So. Since Aaron and I have decided not to find out the gender of our little one.... I currently find myself obsessed with what is IN THERE.
I say to myself I don't care. Because, really, I don't. But then I get more honest with myself. For whatever reason, I've always pictured myself with a daughter. But when I think of this baby in my belly, it's a boy? I think some of it is that I get nervous that I remember, first hand, the challenges that a girl goes through growing up - wanting to be thin, pretty, popular. Boobs, zits, periods... friends....BOYfriends. But then I realize - I bet boys have those same issues too? I just didn't live through them myself.
I just want a happy, healthy child. But the closer I get to my due date - I'm really really REALLY curious as to what sort of little baby is growing! And it's not only gender... whose eyes will it have? Will it have curly hair or straight? I guess this is part of the excitement that comes with the 3rd trimester.
What about you all? Did you really have a preference for a boy/girl? Honestly? Why?
