Finding Out

Ultrasound of Blake, our little "penguin"!

I know every couple is different when deciding whether to find out the sex of their baby before the due date, and when it comes to us we like to find out! We are just way too impatient to wait 9 months.

Before we found out we were pregnant with baby #2 we contemplated waiting to finding out so that it could be a little different than the first time and we could experience that big surprise that waits for us on the special day. Then we decided we couldn’t wait and thought about doing something creative with finding out like having a party or something. My co-worker told me about a couple of her friends who had their doctor write down the sex for them and hide it in an envelope to take with them. They then took the envelope (without peeking) straight to the bakery. They had the baker frost the cake in whatever gender the baby was, blue for boy or pink for girl and then they had a get together with all their family and close friends and found out together. I really liked that idea so I pitched it to my husband and he thought the same so we were going to do that.

Well, a couple weeks ago I asked him if we were still going to have our little get-together and he said that he didn’t know if he could sit in the room during the ultrasound watching our little one and NOT find out, he just couldn’t. I could probably hold off on waiting to get all our family and friends together but I see what he’s saying, plus I have an empty nursery that I am dying to get to work on!

So…tomorrow we will be finding out the sex of our baby and sharing it with everyone right away. Our office took a gender vote and it’s at 50/50 so we’ll see how that turns out. I’m so excited!!

Can't wait to add to our little family.. but will it be a boy or a girl?
