Is it a boy or a girl?

As my little belly starts to grow, along come the curious inquiries and this one comes up on top. I’m not sure & probably won’t find out until little bebe comes on out into the world. I am blessed to view pregnancy & childbirth as a natural & normal function of being a woman and am not really concerned about all these things that the medical community likes to make a fuss over. The only real way to tell the sex of my baby is to have an ultrasound, a procedure popularized in the 80’s that was originally intended for high-risk pregnancies only. Almost everyone who goes to a doctor receives one as a routine procedure and most parents are completely unaware that it is considered risky and NOT recommended unless there is a serious concern. Here’s just one link to an article on the dangers of prenatal ultrasound. (Poor little mice!) Just one way medical doctors routinely put profit before the well-being of their patient. I am content to wait until baby’s birthday to learn this detail about them, as women around the world & since the beginning of time have done.

  1. It is really exciting to wait to find out anyways. My friend did it twice and it is so much fun to find out after all that hard work! People will bitch b/c it’s harder to find non-gender specific clothes for your shower, but too bad for them!
