On Monday 4/18, we will go back for another sonogram to monitor the size of the placental cyst. I'm praying its either staying the same size or shrinking so that this little peanut can grow as big as it wants to without any issues! I will be 15 weeks along and I *think* they can tell the gender...well I will ask if they can anyway. I'm torn on whether or not I want to find out! Evan doesn't want to know and if I found out, I think I would keep it a secret so he won't have his surprised ruined. I'm hoping I wouldn't slip and say oh "he's kicking a lot today" or "she's getting bigger!" because that can happen! Plus, I always feel weird saying "it" so I try to refer to this little peanut as Baby C or peanut or some other cute name...it just seems weird but that's me. I didn't find out what we were having with Brennan and Cole and honestly, it doesn't matter to me whether I have a boy or girl. After all the ups and downs the past 6 months...if this nugget can grow strong and healthy then gender doesn't matter. When I was pregnant with Cole, I could've sworn he was a girl. My cravings were all pointing to girl, that super scientific (insert sarcasm) Chinese Birth Chart said I was having a girl and I just felt girl. He came out and the doctor was like..."Look at that face! Looks like a boy!" And two seconds later...it was confirmed! I had a slight twinge of disbelief but realizing we had a healthy baby boy...gender didn't matter. People will say to me but you need a girl, I hope it's a girl for you, etc etc. Well, it's up to Evan...my eggs don't get to decide! Lol! Watching my boys grow up and being a #boymom has been so fun. Sure, they're busy and rambunctious and crazy some (most) days but they are the sweetest little guys I know. And yeah, my house can get really stinky but I wouldn't change it for anything. I think I would like to find out just to mentally prepare myself for life with three boys or to get ready for the dresses, hair bows and princesses. I've had the experience of not knowing...why not have the other one? I have a few more days to decide!
Would you want to find out? Did you with your kids? Let me know your experience!
