Finding out

A couple of weeks ago we had our 20 week scan and the naughty little bean was being a fidget so the sonographer had to rebook us for another, as she couldn't record everything she needed to. She had asked us if we wanted to find out the gender of our little lemon and we had agreed to do so.
This decision was not easy at all. Not for me anyway. I have always known that I would wait to find out the gender on the day baby was born but Sebastian hadn't had the same views. How do we compromise?
Anyway... after browsing baby grows and little outfits I felt the need to know. This decision kept changing for me though. Yes, No, Yes, No. So we had decided that we were going to take an envelope to the sonographer and ask them to write it down and seal it for us. This way, if we really wanted to know and decided to find out we could.
The moment I sat down on the couch and she asked us the question , I glanced over to Sebastian and back to her and blurted out a yes.
Everyone has a different experience with pregnancy and I'm sure it would be the most wonderful thing to have found out at birth, maybe we will do that next time, maybe we won't. But for me, strangely, it feels even more real knowing what gender this baby is. This bump is a person. This person is a son or a daughter. And this is the most amazing feeling in the world.

So... before I decide to spill the beans with you all, and make doubly sure after our second scan, what gender do you think our little fidget will be... a little boy or a little girl? I love hearing what people think, because we all have that inkling don't we? To be honest, I did too- months ago.

  1. Oooooo I love guessing games like this. I'm not sure why but I've got a feeling a boy is coming your way. Yup yup yup a little (future!) tea-drinking-English-boy!

  2. Given the prettiness of your blog, a little dress wearing girl would be the best fit, so I reckon the Universe will show its wicked sense of humour and send you a dinosaur-toting, sci-fi loving little boy who WILL NOT stop for a cup of tea ever. But as long as they're healthy, who cares? Enjoy keeping the identity quiet for a little while x

  3. We found out what we were having and I agree it definitely made it feel more real. We didn't pick Lunas name until she was born but it was nice knowing it was a little girl and imagining her. It also helps you to plan better I think! It's a very personal choice and there will always be people who don't agree, but you do what is best for you and Sebastian. Can't wait to hear!xx {I think you may join the girls club!}

  6. I think I'll be the same, going back and forth between wanting to find out and not wanting too, I think having the sonographer pop it in a sealed envelope is a lovely idea if there's a special occasion coming up like Christmas or an anniversary which the envelope can be opened on. I feel as though you're going to be mummy to a little girl this time! x

  11. I reckon it will be a little boy, but I think either will be perfect! :D I'm feeling all excited for you, even though you already know! My cousin spent months thinking she was having a girl, only at a later scan to be told it was actually a boy! Alice xx
