Boy or girl?

When the customers found out that I was pregnant and my bump started to grow, I noticed that especially the older generation informed me of what sex Bean would be.

"You are definitely having a boy.....I am never wrong"

"Oh yes look you are carrying all out the front, it is without doubt a boy...I am always right"

I even had them laying me down doing the ring test......"look at that, you are having a boy!"

My sister went to for a psychic reading, she was told that one of her sister's was pregnant (that was me!) and that the baby was due in October (correct) and that she would be having a boy!

One lady who claims that she can 'predict' the sex of a baby, gave me a necklace and kept dipping it in and out of my hand to see which way it spun round.....According to her I was having a boy!

We didn't want to find out the sex of Bean as we were pretty much convinced from what we had read and from what everyone was saying that we were having a boy!

I am really pleased that we never found out the sex when we went for a scan, I ended up having 4 scans so it was tempting, it was so much fun trying to work out if we could see anything. One of my sisters thought she had spotted something boy shaped in the scan photo. Even when we had a 4D scan we told the Dr right at the start that we didn't want to come out, he told us he refered to all babies as 'he' but did say 'she' to keep things interesting.

If anyone had asked me I said "I really don't mind as long as the baby is healthy". I never would have admitted it but deep down I was secretly hoping for a little girl, but convinced myself that it wasn't going to happen so was quite happy having a little boy.

It shocked most people when they found out the little boy was infact my beautiful little girl!

A few of my friends found out the sex of their baby. If I were to become pregnant again I definitely wouldn't find out, it just made it that little bit more special. My friends said 'it was like unwrapping your Christmas presents before Christmas day, still fantastic but you dont't have that suprise element'.

Did you find out the sex of your baby?


  1. We didn't find out although I was convinced I was having a boy.

    As it turns out mothers intuition counts for nothing and we had a girl!

    If we have another we definitely won't find out again. I loved not knowing!

  2. How strange, we posted the same subject on the same day! and, we also called Belle 'Bean' (well, little bean as I'm referred to as Bean but that's a boring long story) before she was born too. *freaky*

    As I said in my post, we found out. James just could not wait! I love surprises but glad we found out. As I ended up having a c-section under GA the whole 'moment' would have been lost on me anyway so I'm glad I knew.

    It's such a personal choice and I have found it so interesting to hear what everyone did. I think it's annoying if anyone is pressured into finding out (or not) it's the couples decision.

    Lovely post ;) and blog, am now a follower, thanks for tweeting!

  3. I found out with mine, I was told I was having a girl, but I wanted a girl so bad that I was convinced that buying loads of girly things would 'jinx' it and turn my girl into a boy lol.
    My mum said I looked so relieved when the baby was born a girl!
    Love your blog by the way :)

"Your baby has Laryngomalacia"!!!????

I will explain a little about my labour, maybe a detailed explanation might go up in the future but lets put it like this, it was not nice and after suffering from an Irritable Uterus throughout my pregnancy followed by a 42 hour labour and a scary ending but I got the beautiful Tillie Bean so was worth every second! Basically the cord was wrapped around her neck twice and right round her body. She had the hiccups so much during pregnancy and I am wondering if this does have a connection to the problem which was about to be revealed!

I remember a few nights after Tillie was born hearing a strange noises when she was breathing, I had to stay in hospital for a few nights as I needed a blood transfusion, I buzzed the nurse to check about her breathing but was told 'it is just mucous on her lungs it is very common it won't last long'.
Even as a new mum I thought that this wasn't the case, but who was I to argue.
This 'mucous' was getting louder and louder and by …

When I was at school, we didn't have fidget spinners..... we made these

I was sat with Tillie earlier chatting about school. I told her there wasn't such a thing as fidget spinners when I was at school..... instead we made these...... BUT WHAT ARE THEY CALLED? Do they even have a name?

I could easily remember how to make it!
Did you put colours and numbers on yours? I think I did the colours and the numbers the wrong way round. It was close to bedtime so I made one in a rush and told her we would make some more tomorrow.... Any suggestions for challenges would be gratefully received!

Also if anyone knows what they are called please let me know!
