First, thank you for all of your very kind messages and comments. We are so touched by all of the beautiful notes and well wishes, and grateful for all of the love.
My bump is growing and the big question has been, do we know if we are having a boy or girl…
well, we could know, but we don’t yet!
Our doctor gave us a sealed envelope with the answer inside and we’ve had it for about a month. Each time we think about opening it, the timing doesn’t seem right.
Mostly everyone in my family waited for the big delivery room reveal with the belief that there are so few surprises in life…. but, almost all of my friends found out right away! I guess that leaves us somewhere in the middle!
In our waiting defense, we’ve had a lot going on in the last month, with Mo’s crazy travel schedule, buying a house and another business (that’s a whole other blog or 10), publishing The Bridal Body book (and all of the events that have gone along with it) and sadly the devastating loss of a family member, Mo & I have had very little time together.
Part of me wants to know simply so that the “your face changed- you are having a girl”, “you’re widening so it’s definitely a girl”, “you are carrying in front so it’s a boy for sure” comments come to an abrupt end!
The honest truth is, it truly doesn’t matter to me if it’s a boy or a girl (I’d love to have both) – as I now truly understand the concern of just wanting a healthy baby.
A lot of friends are asking if we’ll do a reveal party (I was even given balloons!) … I’ve seen some very cute, fun ones but I’m not sure that’s for us… maybe we’ll just open it on rare quiet day at home… or with immediate family…. I guess both the when and how are still big question marks! Or perhaps I am over thinking this way too much!
So parents, just wondering, did you find out the sex of your baby? Are you happy that you did or didn’t?
