"although we don’t yet know gender I have an inclining it could be a girl"

Yes, I saw that too🤣, but frankly my iPhone is a right little bastard and rewrites loads of my texts & posts. Beyond anything non iPhone sufferers believe.

What makes you want to it 'inclining' or the word 'gender'?
Because being good at spelling isn't the most important life skill tbh.
I am brilliant at spelling and my life is a disaster.

Yes the phones do autocorrect a lot of words wrongly and if you are posting in a hurry then you might not notice.

@Destroyedpeople Hmm do you visit Pedants' Corner often? Being good at spelling is the only life skill I've got.

Haha yes me too. I am quite pedantic in real life but I try to keep a lid on it as it annoys people.

You and me are the same!!.....(!)

As seen on a Baby Names thread:

My favourite is [Name]. My dc is called name, so of course I am bias.

' I am biased' seems smug and unnecessary.

The missing ed is seen often.
