Did you “know” you were having a boy or a girl?
Some women just KNOW.
I have to admit, I KNEW. I did. Thirteen years ago, when I was pregnant with my first child, I KNEW I was having a boy. I’m totally serious! I was about nine weeks along when I had a dream that my husband was holding a blond, blue-eyed boy. I woke up, and KNEW! And when we found out the sex of the baby several weeks later, he was shocked. But I wasn’t! I already had tiny blue baby shoes and hats on my mind!
Three years later, in 2003, I dreamed that I was having a girl. And guess what? I was right on again!
Crazy? Pregnancy hormones gone nutty? Or maybe it was mother’s intuition.
Some moms, like my friend Jane, just KNOW! (She just found out the sex of her baby a few days ago and she was totally right! A boy! Congratulations!)
I knew I was having a girl the moment I found out I was pregnant. But we didn’t officially find out till she came out. People gave me so much advice and so many wives’ tales of info about what I was having, but I knew. Plus, I wanted it to be a surprise anyway, in case for some reason I was wrong. 🙂

Isn’t a mother’s intuition amazing? I had my baby boy dream even before I knew I was pregnant! I woke up wishing the dream would come true… and a few week later I would find out that I actually did have a little baby inside me! So when the ultrasound technician said that it’s a boy the other day, I wasn’t surprised one bit. And now I anxiously await my little Brian Jr.’s arrival! 🙂
I’m not surprised either, Jane! And I couldn’t be happier for you and Brian. Congratulations! Thank you for sharing your motherly insights and instincts! XO
I knew I was having a boy as well. It’s pretty amazing right? My husband was relieved and so didn’t question me being right (he had a daughter from a previous marriage already and wanted a son). So glad I found your blog – thanks for introducing yourself on my FB page!
