Last chance to cast your vote.

Boy? Girl?

Did you vote? Welp, you're probably wrong. Especially if you've been listening to me prattle on about what I think it is!


That's right ya'll! We're having another BOY!

To say we were both shocked to see his boy parts on the ultrasound is an understatement. we were both just so expecting it to be a girl! In fact, we had been calling him a 'her' for a few weeks. The tech even started to call him a her during the scan! I was just so.sure. Then again, I was certain Charlie was a girl, too. So much for Mother's Intuition I guess ;)

But man, everything about this pregnancy has been different. My sensitivity to sugars such as lactose, glucose and fructose has been heightened to an uncomfortable level leaving me with a lot of digestive issues. I'm bigger than I was before at this time, my hips are already starting to hurt, I haven't been sleeping since about 7 weeks, my back is already aching, my energy won't seem to bounce back from the first trimester- I mean EVERYTHING is different. Really, for all intents and purposes, my pregnancy with Charlie was s.m.o.o.t.h. and then here comes his brother with a BAM. I know others have much worse pregnancy issues so I shouldn't complain too much, but I WAS JUST SO SURE!

Don't get me wrong, we are crazy excited for another boy! I was just so psyched for a girl that even now, as I write 'boy' and 'brother' I'm still a little surprised! I was even doing all those things you're totally NOT supposed to do before you know the sex (you know, shopping for adorable head wraps, leg warmers and 'nevertheless she persisted' onesies) because I was relying on my 'Intuition'. But this baby didn't just fool me and Daniel- almost everyone thought it was girl. I even did an Instagram poll and 88% of responders thought it was a girl!

So, that's that! Baby boy number two is on the way! I can't wait to meet him and I can't wait to introduce him to you all <3 <3
