Two Girls & A…

Whenever I tell someone I’m pregnant the first question is “Are you going to find out what you are having?” I found out for my first two. With my first it was amazing. We had the dr. write the sex of the baby and put it in an envelope. My husband and I went on a babymoon to Antiqua and sat on a quiet dock on the beach and opened the envelope. It was so exciting and we couldn’t have been happier to learn we were having a baby girl. It made it all seem so real. I felt like I was really able to bond with my baby. For number two we had a lot of issues and found out what we were having on not such a good note. I saw it on the paper when they were going over our test results and I actually was upset to know because in case anything was wrong or happened now I felt attached. I had two totally opposite experiences. I always said if I had a girl and a boy I would let number three be a surprise. However since that is not the case my type A personality wants to know because I like being prepared. If it’s a girl I already have most of the things I need, however if it’s a boy it’s a whole new ball game. I also know that my husband would really like a boy. After all we went through, we obviously just want a healthy baby, but I know deep down he is wishing for a boy. I don’t ever want him to have even a minute where he is upset in the delivery room if the baby comes out and it is another girl. I want the experience to be complete joy!

From the moment I told my oldest daughter I was pregnant she said it was a boy. I told her that we didn’t know and if it is a girl she still has to love her. She insisted it was a boy and I was actually a little concerned because if we were having a girl I wasn’t sure what her reaction would be. It’s a 50/50 chance either way. I have read some statistics that say if you have two of one sex already your chances increase of having the same sex for the third, but how do they really know? I was convinced I was having a girl, so we had two conflicting opinions in my household. My pregnancy has been very similar to my first two, which were girls. I looked that up too and some people had different pregnancies with girls and boys and some felt the same. I also saw that some people were really sick while pregnant with a girl and I have friends who were really ill with a boy. I think everyone is different. Of course we look for signs and symptoms and their are old wives tales, it just makes it more fun and ineresteing. So my husband and I decided that we were going to find out. One of our friends had a gender reveal party, that seems to be the thing to do these days. So we said maybe we would have a few close friends come over and get some cupcakes and have our girls bite into the cupcakes to reveal the gender. We had our 13 week sonogram and the tech asked us what we had at home and we said two girls. She said do you want to know what you are having? I was shocked because it was only 13 weeks, how could she tell. She said she was 90% sure what it was as she could see it very clearly on the sonogram. I looked at my husband and was like do you want to know. We were both very anxious. So we said lets just find out! We are so excited to announce that baby number three is a…

A BOY!
A BOY!
