Can't Handle Surprises

So Friday is the day...the day we find out whether I'll be shopping for blue or pink. People have tried to persuade me to keep it a surprise. I already have one of each, they say, surely I can wait. Nope. Can't wait. Must know. NOW!

I love a good surprise, don't get me wrong. The Man and I try to keep our gifts to each other a secret. But I am notorious for asking questions, even just the "yes" and "no" kind and still being able to figure out my presents. The Man stopped answering my questions the year he finally had me stumped on my Christmas present, only to have me ask the right questions and figure it out on Christmas Eve. Now, he won't play my game. It's rather irritating. I can't handle not knowing!

And a baby? Well, that's just about the biggest surprise of all. No way can I wait it out another four months and have the big reveal at the hospital. I just don't have that kind of endurance. I would have gone to that place at the mall where they do the 3-D ultrasounds weeks ago if not for the fact that they recently closed.

Will my baby be a boy or a girl?

When I was pregnant with Max, people would ask me if our kids wanted a girl or a boy.
I would answer, "CJ wants a brother, Brielle wants a sister, and Aaron wants a puppy."

I think you're having a baby.

The pink kind;0)

I'm writing you at 2am because my little girl is crying loud and long. Thavee fed her table food and lots of it. I think she's got a belly ache. Speaking of babies...I vote boy. I love boys. And I love girls too of course. I just thought your little girl would be well protected with a boy before her and after her. :)

I am going to say a boy. I don't know why, but that just popped into my head first. Good luck.

As someone who went to the mall to have an ultrasound, I am totally with you on this one! Good luck- What time is your appointment (so I can call and bug you afterwards?)

I think it is going to be a girl. I'm sure. I hope I am right.
Bye bye.♥☺

I think you are having a girl. Good luck on Friday!

Kristie said...

I vote boy!! I can't wait to hear on Friday!!!!!

Nat said...

ALL babies are boys!

On a side note, we went to the ultrasound place at the mall with our first baby. They told us he was a girl.

Amanda said...

I can't handle waiting either!!!!! I have no vote b/c I am horrible at guessing these things!

Jo said...

I loved not know what I was having until the big day. But I am voting girl. Cause girl, boy, girl and ultimately boy again, just is such a nice pattern!

Kelly said...

I'll take a wild stab and say girl. There is no way I could wait that long to find out. I am a planner and need to know the minute I can find out.

Tim and Angie said...

I think you are having a girl. That is because I usually assume a baby is a girl because all of my babies have been girls. I can't wait to find out too. I'm glad you're not waiting to find out. I can't take the suspense!!

Woohoooooo! How exciting!!!

Caroline said...

We guess boy, our own odds haven't been that great with 4 boys/ 1 girl. Fun either way though :)

I can't wait to know what you are having. It is so much fun to guess if a pregnant lady is having a boy and girl.
