I wanted it to be a surprise. The gender.
Let me just warn you that everyone assumes you know what you are doing when you are having a baby. I had an appointment with the ultra-sound technician. They don’t give you instructions. It is not “lay down, expose your stomach, and I will get you a sheet to cover up.” It was “lay down on the bed.” I had never met or worked with her before. So I just have to assume she wants me to yank up my dress as she shuts the door to the waiting room…..
Anyway. The door shuts and she gets me a sheet to cover up (since I wore a dress) she starts to look for baby.
I wasn’t excited about the gender until she said “it looks like a boy.” I immediately realized that our baby boy would have a baby boy to play and grow up with on both sides on our family. My aunt has an infant boy and my sister in law is due a few months before us and is expecting a boy.
J doesn’t have brothers. I don’t have brothers. We are so excited to have a little boy! Now to pick out the name…..
