Well, it’s that time. Time to find out what this little person growing inside of me is- boy or girl!
Tomorrow we are having a few family members over to do a gender reveal party. With Josey- or Jellybean, which was her nickname before we knew who she’d be- we couldn’t wait for the gender reveal party. Tom and I had to find out, but we did the party to announce it to family.
This time around, I’m insisting that we wait and find out with family what Nugget is. Tom can’t believe I’m making him wait and is giving me nonstop grief about it, but I think it will be more special to find out at the party.
To be clear, neither of us really cares one way or the other- but it’s one step closer to meeting our baby and knowing them as a person, and that makes it hard to wait.
This is the 8th grandchild on my side of the family and the 4th on Tom’s side of the family.
So here’s how it all stacks up -
*On my side, my 10-year-old nephew is the only boy, so far. So it would very exciting to have the first grandson in a decade. And Tyler would probably like to have a boy cousin!
*On Tom’s side, there are 2 girls and 1 boy already. If this one is another boy, he will be named Thomas Hudson McFarlin V and called Hudson.
*Little boys are so fun, and we’d have one of each (not that that would keep me from wanting more).
*We have had a hard time settling on a girls’ name this time. In fact, we don’t have one picked yet.
*Josey would get to have a little sister close in age.
*I have a blast having a little girl, and I’d get to reuse all of the precious things I have saved from Josey.
*We have lots of girls in our family, so it seems likely to be a girl again.
*With Josey I had dreams that it was a girl, and with this baby I had one dream it was a girl.
*Josey has said she thinks it’s a girl.
-I’m 20 weeks, and here’s a screenshot from Instagram of my belly.
*Here’s a screenshot from Instagram of Nugget’s ultrasound at 20 weeks.
*Heartburn has been atrocious. But it was with Josey too, and my guess is that it has nothing to do with the gender and everything to do with the fact that I have a hiatal hernia.
*I have been in the mood for somewhat healthier foods this pregnancy than I craved with Josey.
*This baby measured right on track for 20 weeks at the 20 week check-up.
*That’s about all the stats you get because I didn’t ask how much I weighed at my appointment, and I wouldn’t share it here even if I did know. Since I don’t know my weight, I can’t even let you know how much I’ve gained so far. Again….not sure I would anyway.
So, what’s your guess?
Anyone have any guesses for gender before we find out tomorrow night?
I can’t wait to find out and share it with you!
