i hope its because everyone else has realized how much fun it is to torture the general population who thinks its their business to know what flavor your baby is before its born.
This is the first time we've shared gender, and now I am constantly getting questions about names. If I say we haven't decided, they want to know what our ideas are. If I say it will be a surprise until birth, they wrinkle their noses and wonder why.
Um, because a) it really isn't decided yet, b) even if it was, I want to be able to change my mind, c) I don't want opinions ("Oh, you're thinking of Michael? I knew a Michael once and he was a TERROR."), etc etc.
