It’s A…


Last Monday we had an ultrasound because of some over-the-weekend spotting/bleeding, and got to see every inch of our new little one. Our tech is amazing and got us some beautiful pictures, one of which being a gender shot! I think everyone was anxious, wondering if we would add a girl to the mix, and I have to admit that I was a little saddened when the tech told us. I had my hopes set on a girl, and had already been picking out (but not buying) crib bedding, and eyeing all the pink dresses and things. I think it took the rest of the day for me to realize that boy or girl doesn’t matter, what matters is that we have a healthy little person joining our family in March!

Big Brother is excited, I just think it will really set in when we actually bring home baby, maybe even when we start setting up the crib, swing, etc that belongs to the baby. Moms who have been in this situation – is there a certain time that older children finally understand and get it?

    Em got the idea of a new baby really, really quickly. But we had some help in her understanding what was about to happen.
    Her daycare provider had a baby in like Februrary or early march, I don’t quite remember. Then Suzie had her baby the very end of April. So Em was surrounded by people who were pregnant and then she got to be arround the new babies so when it was time for Ryker she was totally on board that it was going to be a new baby. (and when we found out he was a boy she told the Tech in no uncertian terms that no, it was a girl becuase she told heavenly father she wanted a girl).
    Anyways. Hopefully B will figure it out soon and it won’t be too traumatic. I’d say if you’re friends with anyone who’s recently had a baby or is having a baby soon maybe hanging out with friends and using that to help could be good. But I don’t know for sure.

    I didn’t find out with my first pregnancy what I was having.. With my two other pregnancies I found out. My first was a girl, then the second was a girl and I was so hoping for a boy, so I know how you feel. I got lucky and my boy came “by accident”. Now this mommy is done!

    I think it’s easier when you have two of the same. I have two baby girls and they are 13 months apart. Now that they are getting bigger they play together (and argue). I’m not sure how it would have been if my baby had been a boy – different dynamics for sure!

    Congratulations again!
