Gender dreams!

I don't put too much stock into gender dreams, and I am not one of those blessed with "intuition" on what gender I am carrying (my mom knew what she was having all five times, and this was before ultrasounds were so commonplace).

However, I will share with my loyal readers that I had a dream last night that I had my baby and it was a girl. Someone said something or it was somehow messaged into my head (you know how sometimes you can't really tell?) that Andrew is "enough boy for me to handle". LOL. Probably true.

Either way, a healthy baby of either gender is perfectly fine with me. I honestly have no "preference" and realize how blessed I am. First and foremost, when I go for my ultrasound on March 28th, I want to see a nice, healthy baby. We are not finding out the gender this time because I really want to experience finding out AT the birth.

As for gender dreams, when I was pregnant with Elise, before I had my big ultrasound, I dreamed this (I am quoting from elsewhere; thank goodness I write this stuff down):

9/12/09: I had a vivid dream last night. I had a dream that I went for my ultrasound and they didn't even look for the gender, so I let them finish up. Then a couple minutes later, I walked back to the u/s tech and begged for another one, telling her I really wanted to know. Then it was weird, I could see into the womb, almost like I was swimming in it, and we zoomed into the baby until I got closer and closer and I saw a penis and she said, "It's 100% a boy!" Then I asked if I could touch my baby (since, you know, it's normal to be swimming in the amniotic sac with him and all), , and she said, "no, let's not disturb him".


As we all know, that baby was NOT a boy.

I find all this stuff to be fun (gender guessing, old wives' tales, etc.), so if you have your guesses, let me know what you think! I'll probably put a poll up on the sidebar so stay tuned (ETA: done!).

When I was pregnant with my first, I just knew he was going to be a boy. Of course I was right. When I got pregnant the second time, I just knew I was having a girl. I was really surprised to find it was another boy.
And I believe every "baby dream" I've had has been a girl. But I think that's because deep down I really want a girl.
So I'm right there with you on not having the intuition.
If we ever have another, I would love to wait until the birth to find out the gender. But I honestly don't know if I could do it. So kudos to you for waiting!

I just had a baby dream the other night. I dreamt I gave birth to another baby girl (super quick and easy with no pain). And when I saw her girlie parts I was like "Another girl????" I really want my next to be a boy, so I'm hoping this dream is bogus. :-)
