We will find out what we’re having on the 19th. That is, if Baby Deuce spreads his/her legs and shows us the goods. I’m getting a little nervous. Okay, I’m getting a lot nervous.
Since this will be our last child (well, our last biological child, at least), I’m nervous that I might wish for the opposite of what I’m having. I want another boy; but I also want to have a girl. I’m afraid that if we find out Baby Deuce is a girl, I’m going to be disappointed that C won’t be having a brother. If we find out that Baby Deuce is a boy, I’m concerned that part of me will be saddened that I’m never going to have a little girl.
And then there’s this other problem…*leans in close and whispers* I’m kind of really hoping for another boy.
Yeah, I know. If this is a girl, I’m going to feel like such a jerkface. If I’ve been hoping all this time that Baby Deuce is a boy, and it’s not…I’ll feel so guilty!
So here I sit. Super pumped up to find out about Baby Deuce’s gender. And super nervous that I’m going to be dissatisfied and/or feel guilty once we find out. :-/
I can’t stop thinking about Baby Deuce lately and how eager I am to find out if it’s a boy or a girl. There are so many similarities to my pregnancy with C, but there’s also some distinct differences.
Craving McDonald’s sausage burritos for breakfast, and they seem to calm my stomach
Aversions to beef and fried foods (except french fries!)
Hyperemesis requiring Zofran, Unisom and vitamin B6
Belly growing low and straight out
Skin issues – dry patches, some breakouts
Inability to work with food/cook at all in the first trimester
Required twice the dose of Zofran that I was on with C
Constant strange taste in my mouth
Altered sense of smell – I always think I’m smelling a strange smell
Altered sense of taste – some things taste metallic, others just taste…different
Aversion to chocolate and coffee. Yes! I usually LOVE chocolate and coffee.
I don’t know what to think! I’d absolutely love to have another boy so that C could have a brother close in age, and because their birthdays will only be about a week apart and we already have all the right clothes… But because of the differences in the two pregnancies, I’m starting to wonder if this might be a girl.
I used to only have dreams that the baby was a girl. It was weird, though. The dreams were never about the birth or even having an infant…she was always a toddler or older. Last night I had a dream that we had a baby boy. I guess it’s anyone’s guess now!
