It's a Girl!
Well I've been holding onto this news for a little while now and I figured with today being International Women's Day, what better day to write about the fact that we're having a GIRL!! I was so surprised to find this out because all along I really felt that we were having another boy. At the very last minute I kind of started hoping that this one was a girl but I still felt so strongly that it was a boy. I was starting to consider not finding out and just being surprised when baby #2 was born, but Adam really wanted to know the gender. My mom and sister were also here visiting when I had my appointment which was amazing to share the experience with them because normally it is just Adam and I doing all of that stuff. So after going back and forth like I do with so many things, the night before I had decided to just find out the gender in the ultrasound appointment. But, once the appointment came, I was feeling so hormonal and emotional that I started doubting finding out and I awkwardly kept having the ultrasound tech move on to other parts of the ultrasound before telling us the gender! She ended up writing it down on a piece of paper for us to decide if and when to look at it later since I was being so indecisive! Which of course, we looked later that night and found out that it was a girl!! I cried tears of joy and couldn't believe it. I am so glad we found out because now we can prepare and get all of the girly things (probably mostly hand-me-downs which is amazing!) that we'll need.
I have gone through all kinds of emotions about this fact, from being so excited to have a girl to so scared (yeah I was a teenage girl once!), to feeling excited for Ollie to have a sibling and then feeling guilty about not having more time with just him before bring another little life into the world. (Oh yeah and also being a mom to two under 14 months!!) But I truly believe all things happen for a reason so I'm just preparing the best I can and am overall so very excited for our growing little family.
