This is a pregnancy specific post. If you are not in a good place, please feel free to pass. Take care of you!
Yesterday afternoon, R and I realized that we are one week away from finding out what kind of Smudge we are having. ONE WEEK! That's so soon! But it also feels like it's been ages since we found out the IUI worked. I'm just so excited!
We have picked out two sets of the big items on our registry (stroller and car seat, pack and play, bedding) with gender neutral of others (diaper bag, jumper, rocker/bouncer, playmat). We have a plan/theme for the nursery that works for either sex. I'm such a planner that this was inevitable. The first inspiration board I put together was in January 2012! Eighteen months later and it's really happening. Wow.
I'll be honest, two years ago I was sure I wanted a girl, hands down. But the Lord working on me since then. Much like His work getting me to a place where I was at peace with the outcome of the IUI cycle, I am at peace with whoever is growing in there. I still feel that a girl would be more convenient (hello 30 pounds of girl clothing!) but I know that God will provide, no matter what. I just want to know!
I can't wait to call this little one by name.
