So, is it a boy or a girl? Time to vote!

16 Weeks 4 Days

I realize I just told you like 5 minutes ago how I was fine with gaining weight or whatever, but umm… I changed my mind. Maybe it’s just this picture that’s making me all itchy to get back into the gym? Not literally itchy because that sounded really disgusting just now, but I don’t know. This girl just needs some exercise, that’s for daaaaaaaayum sho.

Now on to business: My breasteses. I know I know, enough about the boobs already, but seriously. I am nearly a DD and that my friends, requires some acknowledgment. They are large and in charge.

The most important thing we need to discuss today is that of my baby’s gender. The BIG ultrasound is on Friday (I’ll be 17 weeks and I’m paying good money to find out what my baby be packin’, so it better cooperate)! If you feel so inclined, take a guess at what I’m having in the poll below. If you don’t, I will hunt you down with my glue gun, make you listen to me sing Britney and force you to click that button myself. You don’t want that, do you?

(I only love.)

Baby gender anxieties. Also, why I’m scared of boys.

I’m going to be frank with you right now… little boys make me nervous. It must be something to do with the whole ‘fearing the unknown’ thing because I have very little experience in caring for baby boys and I honestly have no idea what it’s all about.

I always dressed up and played house and painted my nails and baked cookies and was generally silly and dramatic. I am a girlie girl, and so is Maddie. That’s all I know. If you asked me what little boys do for fun, all I could really give you for an answer is… eat dirt?

this gives me heart palpitations. GIVE THIS CHILD SOME SOAP!

Also, I don’t have a ton of experience with changing little boy’s diapers, but let me just say that the few times I’ve been present for the blessed event, there has always been some sort of a pee malfunction. ALWAYS. I don’t handle streaming pee in my face with calmness and grace, I’ll just say that right now.

On the other hand, I’ve held baby boys and they are the most cuddly, squishy little things. They are so, so sweet and man, do they LOVE their mamas. That’s definitely something I envy. Madeline loves me, sure… but she’s a Daddy’s girl all the way.

Five of my friends are currently pregnant with boys. FIVE. It’s an epidemic… and with another ultrasound right around the corner, it’s possible I could find out early like my friends did. I am getting sort of anxious to know whether or not I’m going to be a part of the bugs-mud-pee-stream-in-face club or remain in the pink-dramatic-sparkly-fit-throwing club.

Either way, I’ll be thrilled. But if it’s a boy, I’m going to need some major help.
