When I got pregnant, hubby and I were both in agreement that we would not find out the sex of the baby, it was going to be the best surprise of all (plus if I was going to go through that pain then I wanted a surprise at the end of it! lol). I think the fact of not knowing caught everyones imagination at work and I would daily have people coming up to me and saying "I think its a ...". The majority thought it was going to be a boy but I thought I would know better with this 'maternal instinct' I was supposed to develop during pregnancy, lots of friend told me they "just knew" what they were having.

They only wanted £1 for it so in my mind with the thoughts of a little girl I transformed it to this:
