In my first pregnancy with Angelina I just knew she was a girl. Knew it.
With Zoe I was pretty sure she was a girl. Angelina told me she knew she was going to have a sister. She got her wish.
With this pregnancy I’ve really had no clue. I just kept thinking I’d love to have a boy but had a feeling it was going to be a girl, because it seemed like my wonderful husband only makes girls. :)
Zoe and Angelina both told me from the beginning that they thought this baby would be a boy. In fact, Zoe once said, “I will have a baby brother and his name will be Rambo!” haha! That girl cracks me up.
A few weeks ago I volunteered at an ultrasound school in hopes that they’d be able to tell me the gender of this little babe. The woman told me I was having a girl, that was until she moved to another angle. But she just thought it might be the umbilical cord. But then said maybe it wasn’t a girl. But she said “I’m 80% sure you’re having a girl”. So I assumed girl.
Today I had my anatomy scan ultrasound. Baby is growing like a weed. I love getting ultrasounds. It’s always so neat to me to see my babies growing in my belly. Heart looks great, as does the brain, etc. And what do ya know… baby was not bashful what so ever. We were able to see the gender very easily. Let’s just say… my mom, daughters and I cried with joy when we saw the gender. Bet you’ve guessed by now, right?
IT’S A BOY!!!!!
Seriously you guys! I really wanted a boy. So so badly. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am about this. I’ve been smiling all day! My husband and I don’t have any names yet other than the name has to start with an M and baby boy’s middle name will be Benjamin just like Mike’s. Initials will be MBB just like Mike’s dad, grandpa and great grandpa. I’ll let you all know his name once we decide on it! :)
SO how fun is this, friends? In January (hopefully not sooner… one preemie is enough for me) I’ll have a SON! Eeeep! So exciting!!!!
So. Since I’m so used to having girls, I need your help! Where is the best place to buy cute (but not cutesy) boy clothes? What are some essentials for boys and what are some of your great product recommendations? I can’t wait to see your suggestions! I need all the boy help I can get. :)
