Gender Reveal | We’re having a….

Last week I shared a post full of old wives tales to predict gender in anticipation of finding out the gender of our baby! This past weekend we had our families and siblings over to our house for a small gender reveal party. It was so special to find out the gender of our baby surrounded by all the people we love and care about the most. gender reveal party life with emilyI am beyond thrilled to share that we will be welcoming a sweet baby BOY to our family this July!!!! We are both completely overjoyed and we are so excited to become parents to a baby boy! I don’t think we have stopped smiling since finding out. Over the past few days it has been so fun to talk about all the things we want to incorporate & do as boy parents… so many things!
As I have mentioned before I didn’t really have a hunch on what we were having – it kind of varied by day and by symptom (or lack there of!). We knew we would be happy whether it was a boy or a girl, so I didn’t mind waiting until 18 weeks to find out! The 18 week anatomy scan was really amazing – we got to see how much our baby had grown (each ultrasound so fascinating!) and make sure that the baby was growing on schedule and healthy.

At the end of the scan our ultrasound tech turned off the viewing screen so that she could determine the gender. Funny enough, baby was moving around like CRAZY the entire scan and I had to end up turning on my side and keep poking and shaking my belly so she could 100% verify the gender! It’s safe to say he is going to keep us busy!Now that we know that we’re having a boy, we can start planning out the nursery, begin buying clothing, & start our registry. We have had first and middle names picked out for both genders for a few years, so it’s really exciting to talk to him and use his name! We will be keeping his name to ourselves until he is born! These past few days have made everything feel so much more REAL now and it’s hard to believe I’m almost halfway through this pregnancy.I am so beyond thankful for this blessing and am happy that I get to share our journey and excitement here with you all! In case you missed it here is our pregnancy announcement, my first trimester Q&A and the old wives tales to predict gender!
