Growing up I always thought I'd not want to find out the gender of any babies I had before giving birth. I'm not sure why, perhaps the excitement of not knowing or the fact that its 'natures great surprise'. However when we got pregnant that changed, not just for me but for my husband too. We are so excited and decided that we did want to find out the gender of our baby. After all, it's a surprise whether you find out earlier or later. We booked in for a private scan at 16 weeks but waited until the gender was confirmed at 20 weeks before telling the majority of people. It was such an exciting time and has allowed us to get prepared (and spend lots of money on the cutest outfits) ready for our little arrival in April.
I was trying to think of a different way to announce the gender to you all but life is running at 100mph at the moment and I just haven't had time to sit down and properly think. Put it this way - the house we bought is a project (which is exciting) but it doesn't have a bathroom or kitchen at the moment and we're moving in very soon! This, being pregnant and working full time has resulted in very little free time. Roll on the start of maternity leave!
So are we having a girl or boy?
Most people I asked thought we were having a boy, due to the shape of my bump, but we're they right or wrong?!?!?
We're so excited to meet our daughter (so strange writing that!) in April this year and can't wait for this exciting journey of pregnancy to lead to parenthood.
Did you find out what you were having?
