The older Indian woman behind the counter smiled as I approached. She pointed at my round belly and asked, "Are you carrying a girl?"
I shrugged and laughed a little at her question. "I don't know," I said, "I'll find out in a few months."
She laughed too, maybe a little embarrassed for asking. She glanced up at me. "It looks like it's a girl." She gave me a stern nod.
Perhaps it is. No feelings yet, but in just over 3 months we'll have our answer!
