Girl or boy? Pink or blue? Jeng jeng jeng!
The news is – and in a turn of event – Hubby and I have decided to find out ddmm’s gender on D-day only. Yes, ala Mat Salleh surprise style! So we will have to wait until November to know it.
Our reasoning is – girl or boy – ddmm is still a huge blessing and we will still be super excited nonetheless. Imagine a duplicate of E in a girl or boy version…we don’t mind that 🙂 Plus, after coming out of the stressful hide-my-pregnancy drama at work earlier on, I really don’t want to endure more awkward moments from people such as the strange pause and pitiful pep talk of “It’s okay la, girl or boy also the same. As long as healthy” if it’s a boy. As it is, I already had so many relatives asking ddmm’s gender and exclaiming “Let’s hope it’s a girl!” or “Can try again if it’s not a girl yada yada yada”. The ultimate was from my eldest sister who said, “Kakaka, I read from the Chinese gender predictability chart that you’re carrying a boy again. Kakaka!” Hearing such cynical remark from a loved one really irked me to the max.
First of all, how is the gift of a baby ever a sympathetic thing? Second of all, girl or boy, the factory will be closed (let’s see if we change our minds two years from now :)). Third of all, what’s wrong with having two boys or two girls, or even ten boys or ten girls? These are all part of our destiny.
Plus plus, I truly deserve a “Yayyyy…you’re having a girl/boy! Awesome, congratulations! Can’t wait to meet the baby!” So you know what to say to me next time ya?
Now, I’m accepting bets for ddmm’s gender. What’s your guess? 🙂
