One of the most common questions people ask when we tell them I’m pregnant is, are we going to find out if we’re having a boy or a girl. I couldn’t tell you whether they really want to know, or whether it’s just something to say in response to the news. I guess it’s a mixture of both.
With just over 3 weeks until our 20 week scan I’ve not quite made up my mind. I’ve always thought that I wouldn’t want to find out, that it would be nice to have a surprise at the end of 9 months plus however many hours of labour, and that people know too much about babies before they arrive these days – some people even announce the name, which only leaves the due date for people to speculate about.
