I have to say I was shocked. I really really thought it was going to be another girl. Looking back I think I was scared to have a boy. One because I didn't have a male figure in my life growing up so I think that influenced me and also I know girls so I thought it would be easier to have something I already knew. However seeing my husband's reaction when he found out we were having a boy made me so super excited. Don't get me wrong he loves our daughter but I think he really wanted a boy (like I think a lot of men do).
All of the tests and measurements came out wonderfully, my chances of downs and spinal bifida and very low and the trisomy tests were all negative. SO glad we have a healthy growing baby boy. I know how hard some people struggle to have a child and I am so blessed to be able to have 2 healthy wonderful children and I would NEVER take that for granted!
It took me a little bit of time to get use to the thought of having a boy but now I am super stoked! Addison will be our only little princess and I am happy about that too. So now I get to buy all new boy clothes, and learn to think boy. Also the little man is very very different pregnancy wise that Addison was, he is super active already and is punching and kicking away. I don't even think I was feeling Addison move at this point. I think I am in for a much different baby than Addison was.
Picking names is going to be a different story though. We had Addison's name already picked out before we even knew she was a girl and the boy name that we sorta liked for her we don't like anymore and we just can not agree at all on a name. We have a few that got a maybe from both of us but nothing that screams yes this is the name of our little man. So if anyone has any boys names they want to throw my way feel free!
Yay for our little (no name) man!!!!!
