Sex dreams

No, not that kind.

I had a vivid dream that the baby was a girl. Actually, her girl parts weren't on display in the dream, but she was born already and known to be a girl.

In the beginning of the dream she was brand new, still slimed up and lying on top of me. I couldn't see her face, just the top of her head and her tiny naked body. Then somehow we were at my dad's house in the de facto "guest room" which had two twin beds. The Hottest Computer Scientist in the Universe got up and went to another room, and I picked the baby up and tried to feed her - but she wasn't biting (metaphorically). I started thinking about what I've read about breastfeeding and considering what to do to convince her, but then a bunch of people showed up to visit "the baby" and I felt really frustrated that we were interrupted and worried that she was hungry. :(

When I told my dad the next day, he said "Sorry to disappoint you, but it's a boy." Everyone is totally sure this baby is a boy, so much so that we sort of tend to believe them. Cuz we hear it every day.


  1. But you're the one closest to the kid... so I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up a girl - UNLESS you had an intuition that it was a boy earlier on. I knew Luka was going to be a boy far before we found out for sure at an ultrasound, but had one dream late in pregnancy that, I think, was about the baby being a girl. I don't know what any of this means, but you're more likely to have better intuition than any of the (men especially) people around you.

  2. you were right! congrats on your baby girl!
