I tried to think of some clever way to announce it. Obviously came up empty.
So it's a boy! I'm kind of scared, you know, it's the Other (let's get all anthropological here), but mostly EXCITED! To have a baby! And not have to keep calling him "it"!!!! Now comes the choosing of a name (which might be hard), and the shopping, and the curling up in bed talking to my little boy! When I told Dh I was nervous about having a boy, he reminded me that while a boy is not a girl (stick with me), we often hear about the special relationship a mother has with her son. I'm hoping for that, especially since despite still calling Dh "mama," Baby E is shaping up into quite the Daddy's girl.
It was so obvious during the ultrasound. I could tell right away - when the tech was still just taking pictures of the legs. Thinking, "Um, that looks a lot like a baby unit...not gonna say anything because I hate being wrong..." but sure enough thirty minutes later when the tech was ready for the gender reveal, there was that baby unit! The baby was soooo active. It was really funky to feel the baby kicking around and see it on a screen at the same time. He was measuring spot on for my due date of April 18. Almost half done!!!!!!!! So excited to meet you, little one!!
