For my last pregnancy, we kept the sex a surprise. We didn’t want to know if we were having a boy or a girl. I was pretty sure our little H was going to be a girl and I was right.
This time around we wanted to find out. Mostly because I wanted to know if I had to haul out all little H’s baby gear I’d been hoarding and go through the huge task of washing and sorting it all. Plus, our kids are going to share a room. A room which needs a make over and I wanted to know if we needed to paint girly – for a duo of girls…or more neutral.
During the first 2 or 3 weeks of this pregnancy, I kept having thoughts about it being a boy. Then, as I thought about it more, I convinced myself we were having another girl. After all, it would make life a lot easier if we had two girls. Two girls to share clothes, two girls to share a room, two girls to share toys. Easy.
Today we went for the 18 week ultrasound. Can you believe we’re already at week 18??? I can’t, it’s gone by so fast.
I’m sure you can guess by the title of this post that we’re having a little BOY. With BOY parts.
I’ve never had much experience with little boys and I’m feeling a little confused. I’m not really sure what to do here. I mean, I bet it will all fall into place once that little blue clad bundle is in my arms but until then, I’m not too sure what to make of this situation. Wiener? Really?
In a fitting turn of events, we had hotdogs for dinner….first time since last summer 🙂
