Spoiler alert: Do not scroll down to the end of this post just yet (please!)
I don’t know what was more exciting – finding out I was pregnant or finding out the gender of my sweet little baby Hendrix. If you watched my first trimester VLOG, then I’m sure you hated me by the end of it when I left you HANGING on the gender! (the good old cliff hanger move!)
When my doctor told me I could find out the sex of our child as early as 12 weeks (Thanks to a little non-invasive test called NIPT) I was literally like, “Where do I sign up!” Stevie and I were both so excited to find out the gender of our baby. We knew it would make this experience feel even MORE real. After we found out, I instantly felt a stronger connection with our baby to be!
If you were tuning into my Instagram LIVE last Saturday then some of you may already know the news. (I accidentally spilled the BEANS and tried playing it cool. eeek! Another reason why you should always tune in because you never know what I’m going to do/say LOLOL) It’s official you guys. Stevie and I are having a…. BABY GIRL. ahh!!! *cue the screams* *cue the tears* *cue the credit card* (ha!)
Wow wow wow. It definitely feels real NOW. Funny story, everyone around me (including myself) originally thought that this baby was going to be a boy. I even had prophetic dreams about it! Plus, no morning sickness? Salty/sour cravings? Extreme exhaustion? The midwives tales were all pointing at boy. At our 16 week ultra sound it was confirmed that the NIPT was in fact very accurate. It’s definitely a girl. 🙂 OMG! I am so happy/excited for this! I can’t wait to see how Stevie is going to act around our sweet little girl. My heart is already melting just thinking about it. He told our friends he’s going to buy a shot gun and be her body guard for life. (He was joking right? lol)
If you’re wondering about the name – I have it. 🙂 I got to pick this one out! We’re going to wait until the day our sweet baby girl comes into this world to share publically! (ya know, in case I change my mind LOL) Thank you again for all of the incredible support and prayers surrounding this pregnancy. I’m officially 19 weeks and everyday that goes by is one day closer to meeting our sweet angel. I can’t wait!
Now the real question – Do you guys think she’ll look like me or her daddy Stevie? I’ll end this post on a hilarious note of me and the hubby when we were kids! LOLOL #throwback
