My wife and I went to the clinic yesterday for a scheduled ultrasound, and the results totally caught us off guard. Months prior to yesterday, my wife’s OB made a prediction that we were going to have a baby girl. This doctor had a reputation of making correct and confident assumptions about the gender of her patients’ babies. She wasn’t really that confident about ours though. Regardless, considering the chances of getting it right is about 50/50, we thought maybe she was right.
And so since then, my wife and I have been imagining our future with a baby girl in mind. We even had some relatives also excited about the idea, and my wife and her sisters sometimes talked about girl stuff and such (you know how they are). It was almost like we were already settling and excited to have a baby girl.
