It’s a girl!
All my cravings and motherly instinct told me it was going to be a boy. I craved for very spicy delicious Western Nigerian meals, similar to the cravings I had in my previous pregnancy with my son. My mother also had a dream that it was going to be a boy. But as usual I was a little sceptical and didn’t go ahead to start shopping for everything blue. We wanted to get the confirmation from the 20 weeks scan. After three pregnancies, I’ve come to realise that babies sometimes have a mind of their own. Just as every child is different, so is every pregnancy.
I’ve always said to those closest to us that I don’t mind much about the gender of a baby. As long as the child and mom is healthy and both are home safely after the birth. That’s what matters to us. Besides we’ve already got one of each so we are very grateful for any additional child.
The more detailed 20 weeks scan not only should us our beautiful girls’ face but also showed us that she’s doing well.
Our daughter Victoria is happy to be having a sister she can play dress-up with.
While our son Daniel is happy to have at least one baby sister who won’t be bossing him about like his older sister who’s always playing the mummy.
