I knew it was a little girl. From the very beginning, I told everyone that I feel I will have a little girl, and my husband and I will name her Taylor Miriam. (We agreed to name a girl Taylor Miriam or a boy Taylor Luke.) I dreamed of a little girl, filled online shopping carts with little-girl room décor, and window-shopped for the perfect little-girl clothing. I never questioned whether or not my child would be a boy.
So last Friday when I had my anatomy ultrasound (at 20 weeks), the technician was probing around my uterus checking out Taylor. As soon as the probe reached her bottom, I exclaimed, “It’s a girl! I was right!” And I was!
So tell me your thoughts: Was this a case of mother-to-be intuition, or was this pure 50/50 chance? I’ll acknowledge that the odds were very much in my favor since the baby could be one of two sexes. However, I believe as a mother-to-be that maybe my connection was a little stronger than I’d thought. I was so convinced I was having a little girl that I converted my husband into a baby-girl believer two weeks before the ultrasound!
I’m very curious about whether anyone else has had this feeling. Did you have a similar experience? Do you believe in mother-to-be intuition, or 50/50 chance?
I’d love to hear from you.
