Step into the polling booth

comments 15

You know from the last entry (and probably from any other of my blog entries you might have read in the past) that I am not a particularly patient person. I am not patient when it comes to waiting for baths to fill up, and I am not patient when it comes to finding out the gender of my offspring.


To help pass the time between now and when we find out what flavour baby we’re having, I thought I’d set up a crude poll widget thing. I know I’ve already asked you what you think we’re having, and you obligingly offered your input via the comments of a previous post, but that didn’t conveniently present a nice visual representation of the results. You all know how impatient I am, I couldn’t be bothered counting the boy and girl votes from the comments, so here we go again!


Just for the record, I think it’s a boy. For absolutely no reason at all. The weird thing is, when I imagine the baby I see a girl (perhaps because I’m more used to girl-babies), but deep down I think it’s a boy. I hope it’s one or the other and not somewhere in between…


Anyway, let’s get this show on the road. Ready, steady, poll!




  1. I must have babies on the brain at the moment (uh oh!) as the other night i dreamed i had quadruplets! Well actually i didn’t see 4 babies, but i walked into the spare room and saw 4 cots, mobiles, drawers and other baby-related paraphenalia. Freaked me out a little bit, and i’m not even pregnant (or planning to be for a couple of years yet!). So many people around me are pregnant or have just sprogged, so maybe my brain was trying to cope with all the extra baby-stuff 🙂

    I commented on this. And it disappeared. I was sad.

    What I was going to say was…. It’s a boy. I’m almost positive. Not as positive as your pregnancy test but close.
    And also, love the red dress in your last post!! Bump is uber cute 🙂

    • Sorry about that – there were some typos in the poll and I had trouble editing it, and I had to start again! Sorrrrrryyyyyyyyy ❤

    why are there only two options; gender should be a spectrum. I also can’t wait for baths to fill; I’m not alone, but dose that mean I’m any more normal?

    I still think ‘boy’ 🙂

    It’s interesting though: when I was pregnant I had the exact same thing as you. Thought it was a boy, but in my mind the baby was always a girl. Today, my daughter turned 14 months. So much for female intuition…

    By the way, what gender does Joel pick? My husband picked ‘girl’, and darn it, he was right 😉

  5. We didn’t find out, but 95% of people reckoned we were having a girl, I think I called my bump ‘she’ for about the last 5 months of my pregnancy.

    Guess what? Boy! Which was good actually, the H and I had only agreed on a boy’s name.

  6. I am hopeless at guessing boy/girl. When I was pregnant I guess I had both in my head so when my daughter was born I felt I had lost my “Joshua”. Does that make any sense?
