So, if you know me at all, you know that I am a bit type A and have a "touch" of OCD...just a touch. :o) Well, there's no better time to combine the type A personality with the OCD as when you are pregnant. Today...I caved in to my OCD side. A friend of mine had told me about this at-home test you could take that could determine the sex of your baby. Well, being almost as good as a new pair of shoes...I have been a bit fixated with the idea ever since she mentioned it. Did I mention that this friend is a nurse...so she has to know what she is talking about...right? EXACTLY!
Today was the day...I just "happened" to go down a certain aisle at Target and what should I find but the "Intelligender: Is it a Boy or Girl?" test. How could I resisit...it was like fate that I was in Target, down this aisle and there it was. So...of course I got it. I could hardly wait to finish the rest of my errands so that I could rush home and find out...is it a boy or a girl?
Now, I have to tell a side story here. Another dear friend of mine told me about the "100% accurate"...that was her quote...Chinese lunar gender predictor. The results...BOY!Now back to the story at hand...my mom, friend and I are convinced it is a boy...my sister, a few colleagues and other friends have very strong feelings that it is a girl. So, you see...I am in quite a predicament...what's a pregnant girl to do? Can you sense the sarcasm? just a little?
Well...I rush home, pee in the cup, stir in the "magic powder"...my term not Intelligender's term...wait 10 minutes...and the result is...GIRL!
So, what does this mean? Yup, you guessed it...we are still at a 50% chance its a girl and 50% chance its a boy! I guess I will just have to be a little bit patient and wait for the ultrasound!
