I’m still in SHOCK!
I didn’t think this was going to happen!
I secretly hoped for this but kept my wishes a secret because I was worried people would think I’d be disappointed if I was having the opposite.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d be happy if I was going to have either! I’m just happy that I’m pregnant..
.. but this was special for me.
All along I thought I was having a boy despite some of my Old Wives Tale tests pointing towards a girl. Not to mention, Jake was 100% convinced from the start that we were having a girl. I even started to create “secret pinterest boards” that were dedicated to having a baby boy.
Old Wives Tales Results:
Ramzi Theory: Boy
Chinese Gender Calendar: Boy
Baking Soda/Urine: Girl
Ring Swings: Girl
I’m HAVING A GIRL!!!
A little mini-me!!
Jake’s one request was to hit a hockey puck that would explode to Pink or Blue. If you guys don’t know, he’s a HUGE hockey fan.. I mean our cat is named Wayne.. after Wayne Gretzky. Ha!
Thankfully Etsy is an AMAZING site to find these types of things. However because I wanted it to be a surprise, I had to order both Pink and Blue and leave it to my uncle to be in charge of placing the right puck down. If you’re a control freak like me, you know what a struggle this was!
As you can tell from my face, I was insanely shocked. I was even telling Jake the entire day, “we’re having a boy.. I just know it.”
Yet I was wrong!
It’s a girl!!!
I’m sorry you all, I know I keep repeating myself, I just can’t believe it! I am so freakin happy, I can’t even explain it!
So now what?! I would love to hear what you all think!
Anyone have girls and have any good advice for us?
Is it too early to start shopping for cute outfits? 🙂
In the meantime, check out some photos from yesterdays reveal!
