SoCS August 12, 2017 – Guess

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “guess.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy! – Lind G Hill


Guess! Is my daughter going to have a boy or a girl? I don’t know. They don’t know either. They didn’t want to know. They want to do it the old fashion way.

Back in the days when my older sister started having babies. Her first one was a boy, so was the second one. She wanted to have a girl, so she went on to have the third child. The third child was a boy also. She finally stopped and stayed on contraception. Ten years had gone by, and that year she couldn’t afford to pay for the contraceptive drug. She got pregnant. It was a beautiful girl. What a delightful surprise.

With technology, we can make a prediction of many phenomena, experiment outcomes, or business developments. In personal life, many situations are unpredictable.

We cannot guess with an accuracy of what tomorrow will bring. We face them as they come with acceptance and positive attitude and handle them the best way we can.

  1. I’m so happy to hear that there are still people who prefer to be surprised by whether their baby is a boy or a girl. Back in the ’80s when my older son was born, they were only beginning to predict the gender from ultrasounds. I preferred not to know, but my then-husband pestered me, wanting to find out from the ultrasound technician whether it looked like he was a boy or a girl. I reluctantly called her, and she said she thought (“90%-sure”) it was a boy. And, we were both excited to have a boy. In the ’90s, when my now-husband and I had our first child coming (a daughter), we decided not to find out, even though the technology had advanced much more for guessing the sex before birth. I was delighted when she was born – we both were hoping for a girl! – and I even asked them “are your sure?” when they announced it. Silly!

  2. There was always a sign at hospital in maternity unit saying: please do not ask the midwife about the sex of your baby! Some people did ask, but we did not, we preferred to have it a surprise. And it really was!
    And it really happens with all people I know including me; if their first three born babies are boys, the fourth is girl!

    Wishing all the best to you and your daughter!
