Yesterday we had our 20 week scan. All looked good and our little buggy was not shy about showing his bits. Yes, HIS bits, it's a he. We are having a boy!!!
We are so excited! I am not sure if it was mothers intuition or luck. Jeremy keeps reminding me I had a 50/50 chance of being right! I don't think he was convinced at all until the scan.
Last night we had J's family over for dinner and the big reveal! It was so much fun. I wish my parents could have been there too, but we had to do another reveal this morning via Skype! That was really special too. Baby boy was kicking away saying hi to his grandparents!
This kid is so loved already. He is so blessed.
Here is our gorgeous boy.
Over two years ago when we lost our first pregnancy I grieved a son we would never meet and each time we lost another pregnancy I felt as though I had him back for a few weeks before he would leave again. People grieve miscarriages in many different ways. Each pregnancy for us was a new loss but over time I felt as though I was losing the same baby again and again. Our son. As much as I would have loved to have a daughter, I think I always would have felt like someone was missing. I don't know if I will ever be able to have another baby. And if I could I am not sure we will choose to. So hearing that our son is growing healthy and strong inside me feels as though this piece of our family's story is complete. Our son will (please, God) be in our arms this summer. I don't have to wait any longer to meet him. My prayers for the last few years have been over this child.
I cannot wait to meet him. I have waited so long already.
Here is the family discovering the news!
Now let the shopping begin!!
