I'm having a baby...


Just kidding, that was mean.  I'm having a baby people.  I real live human.  That's what's been brewing this whole time.  No, I don't know the gender of the baby yet.  I'm pretty sure that it isn't going to change.  It's pretty determined by the time the seed has been planted.

I've read some posts lately where people are getting offended because people have asked what they are having.  This is the second time that we haven't found out what the baby was going to be.  I think it is natural for people to be curious and to ask.  I don't think that you should be offended that someone has asked you about it.

Side note: Yes, I called the baby an it.  My doctor laughed at me yesterday because at 27 weeks, I'm still calling the baby an "it".  Haha!  I mean they don't really look like one gender or another until they're much older.  Usually the only way to tell is by what they're wearing or asking.  Look at this face, if I didn't tell you this was a girl would you really know?  What if this were a little boy?  He'd be just as cute.

To me it also seems unfair to be mad if people ask you if you want the other gender.  I have a daughter.  I love her with every ounce of my being.  If I'd had a son instead would I feel different?  No, absolutely not.  I would still love every bit of him even if I didn't like every mess they made or tantrum he threw.

Don't get me wrong there are plenty of people who were dead set on having one gender over the other but at the end of the day, I'm sure a good majority of those people can't imaging having the other because they've been so fulfilled in other ways.  Really you get what you get.  It's ok to want one gender or another.

But really, I just want a healthy baby...

No one in their right mind thinks, I want to have the sickest baby with the most problems.  I mean really, I think it should go without saying that you want to have a healthy, strong baby that grows into a healthy, decent adult that won't have to be put through traumatic experiences, ever.  I would think that you automatically wanted the best for the life you've been growing.

Of course I want a healthy baby but don't judge me if I say that I want a boy.  I already have a wonderful daughter and no I wouldn't be mad if I had a little girl again. I would be over the moon.  Plus if I have another girl, I wouldn't have to buy A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G because they're being born around the same time of the year and everything.  Judge me if you want, but I would love to have a son as well.  Is that going to change the love I have for my unborn child, no.  Be real.  I'm going to love this kid just as much as my daughter.
