gender poll

Jon and I knew well before we got pregnant that we would like to be surprised by the gender of each of our children. Rather, Jon would like to be surprised and I'm more or less along for the ride because he knows I wouldn't be able to keep a secret like that.

Since we decided we want to wait til Baby Flip makes his or her debut to find out if the babe is a little girl or boy, I added a poll to the right sidebar on my blog. Feel free to chime in with what you think we're having as I continue to share our pregnancy journey.

And in case you're wondering whether we have a preference, we somewhat do. I'm team girl and Jon is team boy. A lot of it has to do with him growing up with only a brother/me growing up with only a sister--neither of us know what to do with a baby of the opposite gender! Ironically enough, I'm thinking we're having a boy and Jon thinks we're having a girl. Obviously we will be thrilled no matter the outcome. As a result of not knowing, we've decided to go with the color orange (and accents of teal) for our nursery. An added perk of not knowing is gender neutral items (which are much more difficult to come by than I realized) will easily be used across what will hopefully be several of our future children. If any of you stumble across cute pins on Pinterest or other web-related inspiration for our nursery, feel free to send them my way! We're leaning towards an eclectic bicycle/elephant themed nursery with the occasional owl. I know, it makes no sense.

And when the time comes for us to post our 20-week ultrasound, I don't want any of you medical professionals/ultrasound technicians chiming in with our baby's gender please! :)
