Two colleagues think it’s a girl, mainly because of my “flat” belly (how is this even possible?) and because my blood results during pregnancy were good.
My dad swung – a girl.
My bubby thinks it’s going to be a girl.
My sister dreamt it’s a girl.
My other sister thinks it’s a boy.
My mom thinks it’s a boy.
