Because if someone is giving her a gift for the baby, they might not be thrilled to find out that it's actually going to the dog?

But maybe I just want to play this on the safe side before I get too excited about anything . . .

Hey hey people. This is not settled yet. Wait til she has the baby. I personally thought she was going to say dog. Honestly, I couldn't see her going to slip and say daughter. That would be silly. Besides wouldn't she just say baby or thank you. I don't know that doesn't make sense to me. Now I'm hoping its a boy so that everyone will be wrong and can't say they called it. The media will have a field day and forever say that she slipped up and told early lol.

Although I would hate for the woman to look stupid, but I want a surprise darn it!

Or gender neutral. She said they don't know so I think they might wait to know or haven't found out yet.

I won't waste much time reading too much into this story. I'm waiting for July to roll around to find out officially.

I think they want it to be a surprise to everyone. I'll wait till then.

lots of happy people in here. How do you think she is feeling? No one respects any aspect of privacy and the women in Grimsby had there 15 seconds of fame and Catherine and William are left with very little lfeft just for themselves.

All it will take is for somebody in the hospital in July to give a blog account of events and the whole frreaking thing will be public.

From my understanding of the situation one of 3 things happened here:

1. The Cambridges know the sex of the baby and Catherine let it slip that it's a girl.
2. Catherine was going to say something else (likely dog) then stopped herself because she realized that it could offend the giver of the testy bear
3. The Cambridges don't know the gender of the baby but Catherine thinks (at least right now) that it's a girl, refers to it as such in private, and let that slip. A good friend of mine would change her mind about her baby's gender every couple weeks or so, to the point that I would often say "so it's a boy/girl today?" in conversation with her

I don't know that this is a sign that they're expecting a girl, or that it isn't. Personally, I kind of hope that Catherine didn't mean to say "daughter" simply because if they do know it's gender they're able to maintain that level of privacy for a bit longer (ie 4 months). This is a couple that doesn't get a lot of privacy or many secrets, and if this is one then I hope that they're able to keep it to themselves until they're ready to share it (or the baby is born, at which point it becomes less of a secret).

I don't know anyone who call their child son or daughter before the child is born. They gave nickname or say he, she or it.

But how is saying "he" different from "son" or "she" from "daughter"?

Really I have known a lot of couples who have done just that, or more frequently a mother to refer to the fetus as my daughter and the father refer to it as my son.

Which is as it should be :)

And I actually agree with miche about it being unusual for a parent to use "daughter" or "son" during a pregnancy. I still think she was going to say "dog".
