TOMORROW we find out more about this lil babe our hearts have fallen in love with, including (hopefully) the gender!! We have been waiting for this appointment for what feels like ages! Mama Oon is 27 weeks pregnant already!
Because this baby is not growing in my tummy, all these milestones feel so significant as they help us feel more and more attached.
My belly isn't getting bigger, we can't feel the baby kick, I don't have typical pregnancy symptoms, we dont have doctors appointments.... these are all things most couples probably take for granted, and they are all reminders that there is a baby coming!
Ryan and I don't get that privilege. And yes, I know, it probably doesn't feel like a privilege when your nauseous, tired, achey and hormonal, but it is still a privilege. (Ok, this is bringing up A LOT of feelings in me, and I've been stuck at this point for a good 30 minutes, not able to go on because there's so much "stuff" bubbling up in me... but I'll have to save all that "fun" stuff for another time!!)
We are soooo excited to know if baby is a boy or girl and start dreaming in a more tangible way, and to get those baby names down! After 4 years of trying to have a baby, we've thought of A LOT of names, and the pressure to chose "the right" name is kinda ridiculous (all self induced, I will say).
But most importantly, we are praying for a healthy healthy baby!
So, what do you think...... will it be a boy or a girl?!
Mama Oon has thought it was a boy from the very beginning and has never wavered!
At the beginning I thought it was a girl, but now I've completely switched to thinking its a boy and feel so strongly it's a boy that I will be shocked if it's actually a girl!
Curious to know what your guesses are! Comment below and humour me by playing along!
