Today was the first day I experienced a stranger’s pregnancy prediction.
I was checking out at the grocery store and a guy behind me randomly says “Girl! It’s a girl!”. I acknowledged him, said something like, “well okay, I don’t know so I guess we’ll see”. He was persistent though. He kept saying it. Eventually he told me he was “never wrong because he has three girls and always wanted a boy and he knows what a girl looks like."
It is interesting to hear random strangers comments and predictions. I don’t mind it (yet). I actually like hearing people’s predictions for the sex of the baby, and it’s especially interesting when it’s total strangers. I think a lot of people who know you will just guess what they picture you having or think you would want to have, not necessary because of the shape, etc.
So many people have said girl. It makes us think that it’s probably a boy, haha. But I guess only time will tell. Until then, I’ll keep hearing the predictions, I'm sure. And I'm also sure I'll get sick of them!
