Pregnancy FAQ #2: Do you know what you’re having?

Nope.  We knew with our second, and since we had a planned c-section with him it took all the mystery out of our day.  Which is fine, except it left me to concentrate on one thing: I’m being sliced open today.  It’s always amazingly exciting to have a baby, but with both a name, date, and expected time — I really focussed on the whole surgery aspect.  Sure there were other factors: what would he look like (they really all look the same to me at that point), what would he weigh (alot).  While we did know the gender, we chose not to tell anyone.   And that really irked some people, like we were keeping a secret.  Well, we were, but it’s our secret!

This time just might be the last time, so it seems appropriate to add a little fun (and perhaps temper any shopping impulses) and wonder for just a little while longer.

FAQ #2A:  Hoping for a girl, then?

Nope. I think everyone else is, though.  After having two boys I realize that having two of the same gender is still to have two very different children, each amazing and unique.  And these were the boys I was destined for and meant to have.  So if this is a third boy I will feel blessed.  If it is a girl, I will feel blessed.  I’m not just saying that because we’re all supposed to say, “As long as its healthy.”  I really believe that this is the baby meant for us.  Plus, I don’t know any of the Disney princesses’ names and I’m already up to my ears in cars and dump trucks!
