It's a continuation of his
He doesn't put forth an opinion about every pregnant woman he knows. He has to get "a feeling" for him to lay it out there. But once he knows, he knows. And for the time being, anyway, statistics back him up.
This is of particular importance to a dear friend of mine who is pregnant with her second. She has a boy right now, and according to Corey, she's going to have another boy next April. She wouldn't mind having another boy. Her first will be two years old when the baby is born, and having two brothers close in age would be a blast. (If you know otherwise, do not tell me. I would like to shield her innocence.)
Problem is, she and Corey have a lovingly antagonistic relationship. And she doesn't WANT him to be right. She's tired of him always being right. She wants him to be WRONG. Not so much because she wants a girl, although that would be delightful. Just because she wants Corey to fail.
When she heard that Corey was right about Amanda, she e-mailed me and said, "Now I'm praying for TWIN GIRLS!"
And Corey, when he heard her say that, laughed and said in reply, "Poor thing. Will she even be able to love her second son, or will he always be a reminder to her of her defeat?"
Anyone want to put money down? Corey's going for lucky 13 here. (Not that we believe in luck. But you know what I mean.) My friend's ultrasound is scheduled for November.
