it’s a…

Posted: August 26, 2010 at 10:58 am

First off, I loved reading all of your comments on the random acts of kindness. Many of you have such great ideas on how to brighten up someone’s day. Us bloggers must have kind hearts. 😉

Okay, okay. I’ll get to what you’re waiting for. We had our doctor visit this morning. Everything went extremely well. The nurse even kept her mouth shut on my weight gain and left it at simply “It’s perfectly healthy and you’re doing great”. Finally she gets the point! I don’t need reassurance I’m gaining only X amount; I just don’t care. For those of you who may not know, I don’t want to know my gain during pregnancy because I don’t believe it matters. I strive to practice what I preach in all ways and not worrying about the scale, even in pregnancy, fits into that.

So, baby looks great. All the bones look strong; baby measures normal sized (which is a good thing because M was always too small); the heartbeat is strong. Everything. And look how cute. 🙂


Then, the money shot came. And there was no question -


Look at me! I’m a boy!” There’s something to mother’s intuition, I tell ya. 😉 Now I gotta get baking. We’re doing a colored cake to tell my parents tonight when they come to go to dinner with us. Have fabulous days!

I’ll leave you with a few things to check out -

  6. Congrats!!!!!!! How exciting to know the sex. Enjoy telling the parents!

  7. YAYY!!! congrats!!!! exciting news 🙂

    I don’t blame you for not wanting to know your pregnancy weight…For years, whenever I went to the doctor, I got on the scale backwards and wouldn’t let them tell me the number. I’m much calmer that way

    • Tina says:

      I honestly don’t care about the weight or the number at all. I think so much emphasis is put on weight and it drives me crazy. Plus, people always ask how much you’ve gained when pregnant and it doesn’t matter. I would almost feel GUILTY with M bec I only gained 20 lbs total. Not by any effort of my own. My body just didn’t gain. I didn’t want to have to go through that again.

  8. Becky says:

  9. Mellissa says:

  20. I will never bet against womens’ intuition. However, even though I had a dream that clearly told me I’m having a boy, my husband insists on picking out girl’s names. I have a few more weeks until the ultrasound.

  21. Morgan says:
