So we've stuck with our desire for a "Christmas surprise" and don't know the gender of this baby... but, I'm not kidding when I say that probably 98% of the guesses we've received from people have all been leaning towards the same gender. Everyone from strangers on the street to our friends and family - they almost all say the same thing...
The old Chinese ladies evaluate the shape of my stomach and view me from behind. Some other women want to see my belly button before deciding. Some people just have a "feeling," but in the end, almost without fail, they all reach the same conclusion about whether they think we'll be dealing in sugar 'n spice or puppy dog tails.
I'm not going to post what the dominant guess is - and if you already know, don't mention it in a comment - but I am curious what you think we're having. I want to see if the online guesses correspond with the in-real-life guesses. So, I've set up a nifty little poll.
What'll it be? Girl or Boy? You can vote off to the right! And if you have some special method for deciding the gender of the baby, let me know in a comment. I find it is a very intriguing world of interesting methods and reasons.
And, I'll tell you what the rest of the world thinks as soon as the poll closes.
