We found out!!

Sat, 07-03-2010 - 3:52pm

The u/s today went great! The lady was super nice, and told us the gender.

It's a BOY!!!!!!!!!!

We are both totally shocked and surprised, but totally excited!! We both thought for sure that we were having a girl, so we are having a tough time wrapping our minds around it, but we are so happy!! We don't have a name picked out (the two or three we had in mind don't seem to fit), but we'll hopefully pick one soon. The middle name will be Michael for sure.

She also told me the placenta was in the front, which is why I haven't been able to feel much movement (I can only feel him move on the sides). She said he was measuring pretty much right on too. We'll find out more at our next MW appointment on July 19th.

Amber – Thanks! It’s nice to be able to feel some movement, at least!

Kass – we did have a harder time with boys names. Not that we couldn’t agree, but we couldn’t really find any that we 100% were on board with, so we kind of just left it because we were so sure it would be a girl! So, when we found out boy we went back to our list and just tried all of them out until one felt “right”. Funny – because Evan wasn’t at the top of our list, but it seems to fit the best. Good luck finding/agreeing on a name!

Adrienne – I’m glad I’m not the only one that feels that way. I can see what you mean about gender envy. Little girl clothes ARE really cute, aren’t they? But, we were at the beach today, and all the little boys were so cute, and there were a bunch of 12-13 year old girls in very small bikinis, and we were thanking heaven we’re having a boy first! LOL! I do hope we both get to have a little girl though :)

Alison – thanks! Nice to see you here!

Oh and I LOVE the name Evan!! So sweet! Evans was my great-grandmothers maiden name and I have toyed with using Evan or Evans as a first or middle name.

Alyssa--I think I would have been a little upset if our baby turned out to be a girl--exactly like you said, you think that it's one, and to find out that it's the other makes you feel like you "lost" the "other one".

But honestly, since we've found out it is indeed a boy, I've also had twinges of regret that it isn't a girl--a few times while shopping I saw some cute girl clothes, and just looking at some Mothers and Daughters interacting with each other.

So I think even if you get what you are expecting, there is still a bit of that gender envy for the one you didn't get, you know?

But I also think it means that girls are definitely in our future at some point. ;-)

Thanks everyone!

I’ll admit that last night I cried a bit (and then proceeded to feel guilty about that) – I felt like I lost a daughter that I never had or something. But, today we decided on a name (Evan Michael) and I’m getting more and more excited!

Grace – I know what you mean! On the November EC there seems to be so many more boys than girls!

Christine – so weird how our intuitions can be so far off! It was the same with me – every time I dreamed about our baby it was a girl, and I was drawn toward the girl clothes and everything. My mom also said she thought my brother (who was her first) was a girl.

Anna – we find boys names so hard to agree on too. We came up with a girls name very quickly. Hopefully we’ll be able to use it next time :D

Mari – funny how that happens sometimes! I was so convinced we were having a girl! Like I said above though, I’m getting more and more excited about having a boy now (after having a small pity session last night).

Congratulations Alyssa!!!! Boys are so sweet!!!
You know? the same thing happened to us... we were convinced that we were having a girl, and knowing that it was a boy shocked us... and then we were so happy!
