In our last post, Wendi wrote that we were quite surprised when the doctor told us that we would be having a girl after they told us in the first trimester that there was a 70% chance of our baby being a boy. Even though there is a lot of room for error by trying to guess in the first trimester, we still had it embedded in our minds that we would be having a little baby boy so all of our thoughts were leaning towards having a boy, naturally.
It was quite the surprise when they did tell us we were having a girl. I know that when the doctor told us, behind the wave of happy tears from Wendi, that there was this certain glow as well! The glow was PINK, PINK, PINK!!! If you don’t know Wendi, she LOVES to shop and this is what she has been waiting for her whole life; to buy stuff for her little girl.
From a guy’s perspective, there were a ton of thoughts that hit my mind too when they told us we are having a girl. First of all I thought, “We’re having a little baby girl. I can’t wait to see her. I am going to love her SO SO much and I already do and she’s only 18 weeks old.” Second thought was, “We’re having a baby girl. She’s not dating, EVER!” Okay, maybe she can date when she’s 40 but the guy is going through the “Meet The Parents” lie detector scene. My third thought was, “We’re having a baby girl. Uh oh! I better start saving for her wedding since I know how her mother is!!!” My last thought was, “Aww…we’re having a baby girl. We couldn’t ask for more and we are SO lucky.” We truly are very lucky after battling infertility and having to go through IVF. It’s a blessing.
On to the next thing. The day we found out we are having a girl which was last Friday, I also had another milestone in my life. I picked out my first girl outfit ever! It might not be the most practical outfit, but it sure is cute and I can’t wait to see her in it. It’s the little fuzzy, pink thing at the top! Wendi, however, has lapped me and has bought roughly 8-10 outfits over the course of 3-4 days. One thing is for certain. This little girl will be well dressed!
Putting all of the material things aside, we are so excited about our news and we can’t wait until early December when we get to see her for the first time. I’m ready for a new routine that includes, late nights, early mornings, changing diapers, crying, snuggling and all of the other great things we are going to experience very soon!
