First of all, thanks for all of the input on facebook and on the blog yesterday! Sounds like the Medela Pump In Style is the favorite by a mile. But it also sounds like getting a manual pump in addition to an electronic isn’t a bad idea. And I had no idea that insurance sometimes covers a big chunk of the payment, which I will look into with our own policy! I was not sure where to start, so I really appreciate all the input!
And now…back to the good part:
Well, the date is set. We will have our next sonogram at the 20 week appointment on September 12th. And that is the LONG awaited day that we will find out if we’re having a boy or a girl. Hopefully. If Jellybean cooperates.
So go ahead and start throwing out your guesses! It’s so fun for us to see who thinks we’re having a boy or a girl and the reasons why they think that.
Tom and I don’t care what gender the baby is. I have ideas for the nursery for each option, and I think both genders are so fun. Tom agrees.
Tom and I just pray for a healthy baby. Bill Cosby says (in Bill Cosby, Himself) that you should be more specific when praying about your unborn children because, left with that much open, God has a sense of humor. But I’m guessing God’s gonna get a chuckle out of any kid of mine anyway.
So, please weigh in! Are we having a boy? A girl? And why do you pick that gender? This will be fun for us to see, and for Jellybean to see someday, I suspect.
And this way, you have a few days to change your mind, just in case. 😉
**UPDATE** This is a (cellphone) photo of me the day before 19 weeks, per the request of those wondering how I am carrying the baby. =) I did have my hands resting on the back of my head, if that makes a difference.**
