Episode 9: Week 22- The Big Gender Reveal

It’s been awhile, I know, so allow me to catch you up. I’m currently 22 weeks along and we found out about 3 weeks ago that we are having our first boy! Here is a link to The Big Gender Reveal!


I had a feeling the whole time that this one was a boy- call it a mother’s instinct I guess! The differences in pregnancies with our girls and this boy are crazy! The morning sickness didn’t last very long, so that was a positive, but the hormones are still wreaking havoc with my emotions!

Besides the expected and acceptable “congratulations” we have actually been lectured on how different raising a boy will be- several times- as though we are slow or dim-witted and do not grasp the concept. It may surprise people to know that we know that already, thank you very much. 

We have been helping raise boys of various ages almost since the beginning of our marriage. We can see the difference! Since I started babysitting at the age of 10, 95% were boys of different ages, different upbringings, different everything. Believe me, I understand boys and girls are different!

Just as I know our Baby Boy will be different. Just as I knew having a baby would be hard- but… I didn’t really grasp just how different or how hard until our first baby was born. 

We still have things to learn, we know, but we’re not exactly amateurs either!
