‘Your baby will look…’

Suddenly, my unborn child’s appearance has become the point of conversation amongst some friends and family members.

My husband is Malaysian and I’m Australian, so it’s understandable to imagine what our baby is going to look like – will it have my fair hair and dark eyes? or perhaps his dark hair and my blue eyes? Ultimately, who cares though right? It’s going to look like a human being. The only thing that really matters is that our baby is healthy.

But for some reason other people think it’s OK to pass judgement on an (remember: it’s still considered an embryo at this stage) unborn child’s looks.

“It’s not going to look like you” someone told me, “how does that make you feel?”

I don’t really know how that makes me feel. I don’t look like my dog but I still love my dog. Seriously, a stupid question insists upon an asinine response.
