Well, I went in for my 20-week ultrasound today.  I was so excited about it all week I could barely focus on any task and last night I didn’t sleep well.  Okay, part of that was heartburn.  But I have been looking forward to finding out whether we’re having a girl or a boy for a long time!  And today I finally found out.  A boy!   :)

I was kind of in shock at first.  I know nothing about boys and was finding it easier to imagine carrying another girl than a little boy.  I grew up with one sister and didn’t have a lot of friends who were boys so I feel completely clueless.  Will they enjoy playing together?  I have a lot of questions and I’m sure they’ll be answered as time goes on.

I’m now thinking happily about all of the cute boy fabrics I need to buy so that I can start making bibs, burp cloths, and blankets for this little one!  And I’ll need a crib set… wow, we have so much pink in this house.  lol  Guess that’ll change!

Here’s a picture of the minky blanket I made for him:

A good friend from church who just had a little boy is going to give me a lot of cute little boy clothes, so that will be a definite blessing.  I have still have most of Emma’s girl clothes I was thinking I might use (when I thought I was having a girl).  They’re not in the greatest shape so not really anything I would want to pass on – not that I know anyone having a girl – so I’ll be making them into a memory quilt for Emma.  That will be a fun project.

I’m glad I didn’t put too much thought into a girl name.  I had a lot of favorites written down somewhere but as far as boy names, my husband really wanted to be able to name our baby if it was a boy.  Since I named Emma.  :)  And he has had the name Isaac picked out since he found out we were pregnant.

I wasn’t sure about the name Isaac at first, but I really like it now.  And I’m relieved that I don’t have to be thinking about names!  I can focus on the important things:  clothes, accessories, and bedding!  Yes, the fun stuff.  :)

I wasn’t sure how I would feel if I found out I was having a boy, but right now I feel nothing but extreme happiness and excitement.  Everything looked good and he’s growing symmetrically, and he has arms and legs – who can ask for more? :)

So, did you find out what gender your baby was, or do you want to if you’re pregnant now?

  • Congrats! Boys definitely are different, but a lot of fun too :)
    .-= Carrie´s last blog ..Im fairly certain that the clock is actually running backwards =-.

  • I have a girl then a boy :). Boys are actually great fun!

  • Congrats! I have three little boys :) I’m pregnant with #4 right now (almost 8 months along) and we didn’t find out the gender. My husband is scared of having a girl for the same reasons you mentioned with a boy – totally new territory in our house of blue! :)

    • That’s so funny! Are you hoping for a girl or have you given up? :)

      • I’m not hoping for one over the other, actually. If I *had* to chose, I guess I’d hope for a boy because, after 3 of them, I sort of feel like I know what I’m doing (most days! LOL!).

  • Congratulations! I have a boy and 2 girls, it is such a blessing to have both! Dont worry they will play together fine when little and now mine are teenagers they appreciate each others differnces :)

  • Congrats!!

  • Congratulations! It’s great that you’ll get to experience each sex as a mother, and boys really are a lot of fun. But also very active, at least in my case. I think you’ll have the best of both worlds with your children.

  • Congrats! I’ve heard that girls are easier when they are little and boys are easy when they are big… That being said, we have a toddler boy running through our house now, and in a week we find out the sex of Number 2. Hoping for a girl this time. I thought I would be ok with not finding out since we don’t have to get much as far as baby stuff unless we want pink. They will be sharing a room, we have a stroller and car seat etc… But, once I became pregnant, I decided I had to know. I think it makes ll the difference to me to know who I am talking to in there!! : )

    • Someone told me little boys are less dramatic and since Emma is going through a huge drama stage right now (falling on the floor in traumatized disappointment when I say no, that kind of thing) I’m kind of happy with the way this has gone. lol

      You’ll have to come tell me as soon as you find out what you’re having! I’m excited for you, too. :) And I totally understand why you want to know, too. I feel the same way, that it’s a part of the bonding knowing who is in there. :) I love it. I’m glad we have the technology to find out!

  • Congratulations! Boys are so much fun…they will keep you very active and thin…at least that’s what my little boy did to me! I hear they are more wild and active than girls, but they are much easier teens than girls. I don’t have a girl (yet) so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but I was really happy to have had a boy first.

    I did find out what I was having but I actually already knew in my heart it was a boy, so it wasn’t too big of a surprise. I’m a planner through and through, so I have to know these things! Our little boy’s nursery was a winnie the pooh theme, so I love the minky you made and I love the name Isaac!

  • CONGRATS!!! Little boys can be so awesome!!! I’m so happy for you! :D

  • Aww that is so exciting! You are so little for being 20 weeks along. Also, your little girl is very adorable.

    I found your blog on Spotlight Saturday blog hop. Have a great day!

  • We would not have done well not finding out what we were having. You’re just like us: girl then boy. So happy to have one of each! Congratulations!!

  • Awww…… you are going to LOVE having a boy! I’ve got 3 boys, and they are SO different from my girls. There’s honestly nothing sweeter than a boy’s love for his mama.

    Congratulations on the “BLUE” news. Anytime you want to talk babies, just let me know!

    As for us, we’re on #6 and we will definitely be finding out what this baby is. I couldn’t stand waiting so long to find out – plus, I hate gender neutral clothes. ;)

    • Thanks, Angie! :) I can’t stand waiting, either. For me it’s all part of the fun of being pregnant! And it’s so nice knowing what I’m having so I can start shopping and sewing appropriately! :)
