When a woman conceives a baby, there are many emotions that hit her hard. From love, care, protection to the feeling of everything in her life changing around, it takes her a while to sink in those emotions. The moment a couple gets over the rage of emotions is the time they wonder if they will be having a boy or a girl or who the child will look like or what they are going to name their child.
