My Feelings on Having a Boy
I posted some exciting news this week revealing that our little baby will be a boy. I was (and still am) in shock. We actually found out a little strangely. I did lots of blood work about two weeks ago and one of the tests would show the gender. Since our 20 week ultrasound isn’t until May (I thought we were having one a week ago at 16 weeks, like my first pregnancy… but I was confused), the doctor said I could call her for the results so we didn’t have to wait until the ultrasound appointment or next doctor visit end of April. So, I had the nurse tell my doctor to call me on Tuesday if the results were back and lo and behold, I got a call!
It was bizarre to just hear over the phone, “The results are back and you are having a boy.” I felt like I needed a drumroll or something! I wasn’t prepared, and it was a little less dramatic than finding out at an ultrasound-definitely not as fun-but oh well. She also let us know the blood work came out great so me and the baby boy are healthy, which I am extremely grateful for.
I have to admit I did cry when I found out it was a boy. I called TJ on the phone in tears to tell him the news. I’m ashamed that I didn’t think of something cute to do to tell him, but I was in such shock and needed to tell him right away! I thought I’d have a little girl to wear all of Eva’s cute hand-me-downs. Like this Easter dress? I NEED ANOTHER GIRL TO WEAR THIS PRECIOUS DRESS! Plus, my mom hand two girls, then a boy, so did my sister. I figured I’d be the same. I know girls, I love the drama (most of the time), we have all the stuff. So, when the doctor said a boy, my world was a little rocked. But after it set in, of course I got excited because a boy is just as good and just as exciting! I’m happy. TJ’s ecstatic, and Eva will get there. Haha!
