Was talking to my pregger colleague about the whole to-do regarding Week 20. (Read: Finding Out Baby’s Gender.)
I was asking her if she wants to find out the sex of her child, and she said she couldn’t because her husband wants to be surprised, and she’s absolutely terrible at keeping this sort of thing secret from him.
Then she told me about her pregnant friend who had decided to learn the sex of her baby, while her husband opted to be kept in the dark.
Said friend then happily swanned home the next day with a pink dress, looked at her chagrined husband, and said, “What?”
I come from a much smaller island-city-state-country called Singapore. I’ve been setting down roots in Australia since 2003. I love both countries immensely.
In 1986, I became a writer.
In 2002, a blogger.
In 2004, a wife.
In 2011, a mother.
Somewhere in amongst all that, I did event and conference management, public relations, marketing, and online communications for over a decade. I’m currently a freelance web manager for a modern dance school, a part-time Communications and Marketing Manager, a part-time writer, and a part-time stay-at-home mother. I don’t sleep much.
