A bump called boy..
I can not really believe that we are having a boy, it just seemed so.. well, genetically unlikely!
And I can not really believe that I shared our news with the world. When I found out with Sophie and Grace we only told our close family and kept it a secret from everyone else until the end. I just assumed that we would do the same this time but I guess I was just too excited to keep it a secret.
It's funny because after Grace died I only wanted to have another girl. I thought that if we had a boy I would always think about how there was a 2nd little girl missing from our family, but after it took me so long to fall pregnant I stopped wanting another girl and just wanted another baby.. boy or girl I didn't care anymore.
Then a few months ago I started actually thinking that it would be so nice to have a little boy running around. Of course, we would have both been beside ourselves with happiness no matter what gender this little bub was, but we are really excited to have a little boy. I have to admit that I have already had several online shopping sprees of various blue themed goods.
My mum said she was so glad I was having a boy because now we have one of each we don't have to have any more. I said "No, I think we will still have more" and her reaction was something like "What the hell? Why on earth would you go through this again?!?" ('This' meaning the stitch and bed rest).
I guess because at the end of the day we get the best reward ever.
*Photo of me on my way back from the bathroom (as that is the only time I am allowed out of bed) looking pretty hot in my pyjamas, un-showered with hair that has just turned into a giant knot because I have not washed or even brushed it in over a week. But who cares.. look at that belly!
