For Stacey Heneveld, everything about her pregnancy has been a surprise—from learning that she was pregnant to finding out that she and her husband are expecting a boy. The Hamilton, Michigan mom, pictured here at 21 weeks, has two daughters and wasn’t expecting to have another baby.
She’s the winner of the iVillage "Baby Shower of Your Dreams" contest. Now, almost everything, from post-delivery pampering to feeding, transporting and caring for her baby, will be taken care of thanks to the massive prize package (we’re still swooning over it!), estimated to be worth $11,620.
iVillage users had from Sept. 20 until Oct. 8 to enter the contest, sharing a pregnancy photo (love the belly shots!) and a text entry about why they deserved the prize.
Here’s Stacey’s winning entry:
You're having a boy! A what? That was the conversation we had when our ultrasound tech told us this week that we were expecting a boy. See, we have two girls. We were expecting another girl. We are outfitted for a girl. A boy means new clothes, new toys, new nursery decor. A boy means starting over at square one. Also, we weren’t expecting to get pregnant again. I foolishly gave away the majority of our baby stuff after our second was born. Again, starting over at square one. In many ways this pregnancy feels like our first. Most days we feel overwhelmed. But every day we are excited! This is a photo of my two daughters, excited to both be big sisters, showing off their "XY" signs in honor of their new baby brother.
So, what did she win? Well, this is the ultimate baby shower, so the prizes are totally fab.
