Boy or Girl??!!

As I just mentioned in my previous post, we finally find out the sex of our baby on Wednesday. I feel like I might be overtaken by the anticipation I'm feeling. I just really want to know... RIGHT NOW!!! I don't know how couples wait to find out, I'm just not that patient. I'm really excited to know what it is so that I can really start to prepare and get SHOPPIN! I'd also like to stop referring to my baby as an "it." It makes it sound like it's not human.

People have been asking what I think it is, or what I hope it will be. I've been telling people I really don't care and that's mostly true because I'll be ecstatic with a boy or a girl, I mean, it's my baby so who really cares. But I'll be honest, whenever I walk by anything that has to do with little girls my heart completely melts. I was over at a friend's place the other night and her little girl pulled out all of her little toy hair styling tools and started doing my hair for me. I could have died it was so cute. Now on the other hand little boys are pretty dang cute too and a lot of fun and the thought of my other kids having a big brother to take care of them is pretty awesome too. Not to mention if I have a boy then he will be exactly one year younger than my sister's little boy and she has said his cute clothes would be passed on to me. BONUS! Also all of my baby's cousin's who will be close to it's age are all boys so if it's a boy then he will have a bunch of friends. So needless to say there are pros to both sides. Troy says he has no preference and that he likes the fact that we have no choice in the matter.

Well, just 4 more days and we'll know. Let's just hope they go by quickly and that our baby will be willing to cooperate during the ultrasound. If it's anything like it's mama, it'll have no shame.

Until Wednesday....

OH! P.S. - I've been feeling the baby move a little bit over the last two weeks and last night I was feeling all kinds of activity going on in there so I quickly grabbed Troy's hand and pushed it down hard on my belly and he felt it move for the first time!! So exciting!

I can't wait for you to find out either! How exciting Jem, I am so happy for you. I remember when the movement started to pick up too around 20+ weeks, it's amazing. I loved the little kicks and punches they made my heart melt, seriously. I guess it's a little more uncomfortable in the end, obviously, but soo worth it. Hope you are feeling well! Love ya :)

Troy felt her??? Yes I am referring to "it" as a her, because i'm pretty darn sure it is a her! But I guess we shall see...
Mason got sick of me forcing him to feel the baby move. Its just so exciting you have to share with someone!
