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.
