Baby #2: It’s A…
We were able to find out the sex of the baby early (it’s usually at the 20 week ultrasound) because we had genetic testing done the week we left Chicago. I was 10 weeks pregnant and we got the results about four days later — the day before we moved.
Unlike last time, where our reveal was also a surprise to us, we checked the results as soon as they came in online. Neil was able to spot the sex first and he said “I KNEW IT” as I was still frantically scanning the page. He had guessed a girl because this pregnancy had been so different than my previous one in terms of negative symptoms. Not that that always indicates a girl, but just because I had such a different experience this time around.
Honestly, I’m a little nervous about having a girl, but I also cried when I found out that Miles was a boy because I thought I didn’t know how to raise one. Now, I can’t imagine things any differently and I know that once she’s here I’ll do just as good of a job with her as I have with Miles.
We already have a name picked out, but that’s staying a surprise until she’s here. Thanks so much for your patience and for joining along with us in this journey!
