So now that it’s been announced that we’re having a baby girl and we have one baby shower under our belt (the result of which was an ENTIRE WARDROBE for our Little Buddy), people have come up with an interesting new twist: “You know, it might turn out to be a boy.”
After being hounded for MONTHS about finding out the baby’s gender and then making it public, a lot of people are now having fun saying “OOH! Don’t take the tags off all those baby clothes … she could end up being a HE!! hahahahahahahaha!” Then a story follows about a friend or relative who was told they were having a girl and then BOOM! “Hope you’ve got a boy name for backup because this one’s got the wrong plumbing!!” Are you kidding me? The worst part is that my husband has now convinced himself that he’s “not sure” what he saw on the sonogram screen. What did I see? The sonographer very clearly pointed out the baby’s FEMALE genitals and repeatedly asked me with no doubt in his voice “See the lips? Right there?” to which I nodded yes because I was absolutely in shock because OMG that’s a BABY! I saw no penis whatsoever on there, and that kid was spread eagle with no umbilical cord in the way. Yes, I guess there’s a remote possibility that our daughter has grown a penis in the last 14 weeks, but SHEESH why won’t you people let me have ANY FUN?
