This morning I lay awake in bed just thinking about the gender of my baby. (I can’t say ‘sex’ of my baby because I am informed by my niece that sex is a bad word.)
Here’s the truth of it: I want this baby to be a girl. How could I deny it? I have two boys already, of COURSE I want a girl! But what’s more, I have felt for a long time, that it IS a girl. I feel like I’ve already met her.
When I was pregnant with Lukey, I thought ‘yes, it’s probably another boy.’ So I started brainstorming boys names since they are so hard for me. I ran several ideas by my hub, who nixed all. But when one day I said, “How about Luke or Lucas?” he said, “Yes, I like that.” And suddenly our baby was named Lucas and I already knew he was a boy. It just felt completely right. There were no surprises when the ultrasound confirmed that several weeks later. My baby was my Lucas, and I felt like we’d already met.
This time around, the pregnancy has been VERY different. I’ve been out of control hormonal and definitely not as sick. I’ve been craving salty instead of sweet, I’ve been tired beyond belief. And as I thought about names, I could not come up with one boy name that I liked completely. Still can’t. But one day, just as with Lucas, I thought up a girls name and ran it by my husband. He liked it. And suddenly I find myself referring to this baby as this name (NO, I’m not saying it yet!) and thinking of it as a girl.
Am I cursing myself? Are there dozens of you who are thinking “poor dillusional girl! That happened to So-And-So and they had 10 boys in a row?” I guess there is nothing to do but wait and see. Next Tuesday I will have my ultrasound and find out. And I’ll tell you on Wednesday (so I can have a day to process the info.) Okay, enough talk.
I want YOU to guess what I’m having!!
