We can all stop wondering tomorrow

Tomorrow, we find out if we're having a boy or a girl. More importantly, we find out how our baby is growing and developing and if there are any concerns we should have.

People have asked if I have a "feeling" as to whether it's a boy or a girl, and honestly, I don't. But I was working on making a "big brother" shirt for Jack just now and I thought, "I should just print a stencil for the baby too." So, I had the "little brother" stencil all the way printed out before I realized that it might not be applicable. Maybe I do have a feeling. Or maybe a preference . . .

On the flip side, I bought some fabric on an impulse yesterday to make a project yet to be decided. When I took it out of the bag at home, I realized it was all pretty girly. So if we are having another boy, my niece and cousin might be getting some fun homemade stuff.

When people have asked, I haven't been super secretive about the fact that we'd love to have another little boy, but I don't want anyone to misunderstand . . . I will be equally as thrilled to have a girl! I think my desire for another boy might just be a fear of the unknown. And I know that part of me is just being practical, knowing that we have everything we need for a little boy.

I'll just be relieved to know that he or she is healthy and growing! And that I won't have to call him or her, "he or she" anymore!

I thought this had to be coming up soon! Can't wait to hear the news, and I'll pray that everything looks good on the ultrasound.

I was the exact same about wanting another boy, for all the same reasons. A girl would have been fine, but I was totally OK with more boys.
