Better Late Than Never: Gender Reveal

Better Late Than Never: Gender Reveal

Better Late Than Never: Gender Reveal

Gender reveal time, are you ready?

Holy Cow, I am 28 weeks pregnant with baby number two and I swear it feels like yesterday I found out I was pregnant. Oh, how the second pregnancy differs from the first and oh how I forgot what pregnancy is really like (check out this post to refresh your memory). Seriously, my midwife actually had to remind me on multiple occasions what week I was on and I certainly don’t know what fruit my babe compares to. In any case, finding out whether this wriggly babe inside of me is a he or she was just as exciting as it was the first time around.

So before I let the news out, let’s start out by saying that I have always envisioned myself with a houseful of boys, especially after having Hudson. I love being a boy mom. It’s what I’m comfortable with and what I’ve mastered. Adam and I just knew that we were going to have all boys, but something about this pregnancy felt different.

They say that when you are pregnant with a girl, you get ugly. Well it started with pimples and then the morning sickness started and then my inability to hold in any type of bodily function. I certainly wasn’t glowing. Ladies, please tell me I’m not alone on this one!! Also, unlike Hudson, this baby is like a judo master karate kid who never stops moving, dancing, kicking, and squirming, and every time I would feel those unfamiliar flutters, I just got a feeling. I feltΒ like it was a girl.

But I must be wrong…

When we got the scan, Adam promised me that we would be looking at our second son and I had convinced myself of the same because that is the life we painted…so you can imagine our surprise when the doctor told use we are having a sweet baby…

GIRL

Yep!! This self-proclaimed boy mama is gonna have another girl in the house and we are all oh so excited!! I guess all along I knew she was a girl, but didn’t want to tempt fate The biggest thoughts running through my head right now are:

  • OMG I can’t wait to see Adam with his DAUGHTER!
  • Wait, Hudson is going to have a little SISTER!Β 
  • I have no girl clothes, shit.
  • Please Lord don’t let her be as crazy and mouthy as me…
  • I’m not going to be the only girl in the house anymore!!
  • How the heck do you take care of a baby girl?!

I need all the clues and tips on raising girls and where to buy those adorable head bands because mama is gonna go crazy on the girl train. What about you? Did youΒ knowΒ what you were having the second time around or am I just kidding myself?

P.S. I tried to get some good pics with the hubs, but turns out Hudson is way cuter. His sister might actually be jealous of how pretty he is.

Always,

Alexie

  • Lazy Sundays call for even lazier Sunday evenings. Preparing for the Monday Morning Blues with my book club box from @toomuchmonday 😍 This mom/pregnancy thing is exhausting and I think I deserve a break so If anyone's looking for me, I'll be in bed reading my book with the scent of the beach in the background (compliments of a very delicious candle) munching on champagne gummy nears (YES THESE ARE A THING) and sipping some artisanal pineapple, papaya and honey tea. Jealous? Check the link in my bio to get your hands on next months box!! β€’

  • Since this book arrived on our doorstep, Hudson has been fascinated with it! The colors, the unicorn and the "scawwy dwagon" are his faves. The coolest part is that it's about him and totally focused around his own story. I love that he will always have this personalized book and the memories of us reading it together... or on his own. Thank you @lostmy.name for helping to create special memories for us!! β€’

  • I want to stop time. Right now. And hold onto you forever. The absolute best feeling in the whole world is feeling him wrap his little arms around my neck and hold on as tight as he can. I love being his mom. I love loving him. I love that he loves me even though I'm broke and can't buy him all the toys. I love that to him I am perfect. Please please please don't grow up, baby. Time flies, mama's. Happy Monday. 
P.S. how amazing is this dress from @mossandhoney!? It's not even maternity but it COULD be because it's beautiful and totally cute 😍

  • Hudson's newest obsession is watermelon juice so I've spent the morning hacking watermelons in our @vitamix blender. My hubs says it tastes like a vacation. Since we don't have any vacate planned, I guess this will do for now! Doesn't get much more summery than that, eh?! Happy weekend, peeps! β€’
