If you have been following my blog you would have noticed a few *ahem* posts about me being pregnant. The last significant one being about why we were choosing to find out the sex of our baby. So, today was the day…
I was so nervous as we drove to the hospital, which is strange because I wasn’t expecting to feel this way. When we found out with Jake we were convinced the baby was a girl. It’s daft how you can build up an idea like that in your mind because really there isn’t anything you can go on, especially with your first. We were a bit shell shocked when the sonographer said that it was very clear that he was a boy but it didn’t take long for our heads to catch up and we wouldn’t have a crazy little scamp any other way!
This time around my pregnancy has been very different. I have been physically sick, whereas I wasn’t with Jake, I have gone off foods and not got the taste back for them and I’ve filled out more quickly than the first time. So, with all of this in mind, I have had an inkling that it may be a girl…
BUT the baby has been very active just as Jake always was and I felt kicks from both early on. I am also carrying in a similar way so I have become torn the last few weeks.
And I think this is where the nerves came in. I was so excited to find out but nervous that I may get a little girl and have one of each or that I may have another energetic little lad on my hands! I knew, either way, we would all be happy but it’s still one of those reveals that gives you a few butterflies.
So, the Reed’s will be welcoming…
A baby boy around the 16th January 2018!
Jake is overwhelmed and went on a hyperactive craze for about an hour. He is very excited about becoming a big brother and even more so that he will have another little boy to play with.
Now to think about names… I think Megan is out the window now! Any ideas for us?
