He or she- which will it be?!

I can't believe I'm almost halfway done with this pregnancy. I also can't believe that I still don't know if this little baby is going to be a boy or a girl. It's killing me guys, for real. I knew Ayden was a boy at 17 weeks, and I knew Lily was a girl at 15 weeks. I'll be 20 weeks and 1 day when I go in for my ultrasound next week and the wait has been torture! I'm a planner, and I need to know everything, so having to wait extra long for this bit of important information has been super hard.

This was last week, at 18 weeks pregnant:

Here's a little secret: I haven't bought a single baby item yet. Nada. Zilch. I have nothing for this baby right now, not even a onesie! Granted, a friend of mine is giving me her crib, changing table, car seat, and stroller (all unisex, thankfully!) But other than that, I've got nothing. I just recently got rid of the last few baby items I'd been holding onto from my previous babies, and now I'm kicking myself for it. I really thought I was done having kids so I gave away or donated everything I had. As soon as I know the gender I can start shopping for the things I need. I just feel like I can't do any of that right now not knowing if I'm having a boy or girl.

I have so much to do and I don't feel like doing any of it. The baby room is still just being used as a "storage" room for all of our extra boxes full of junk. See?

I need to organize it and start figuring out how I want to decorate and set everything up. I know I still have about 21 weeks left to do it all, but at the halfway mark I feel like I should have something more to show for it than I do right now. And I should probably do it before I get hugely uncomfortable, right?

On the plus side, we'll know very soon if this sweet little baby is a boy or a girl, and I can't wait to share the news with you all. We're leaning more towards a girl, simply because it would great for my niece to have a little playmate close to her age. She's surrounded by boys right now! Also, I have a few people willing to give me baby girl items if I do end up having a girl, so that would be majorly helpful. If it is a boy though we will of course be just as excited and ecstatic. All of my tests and blood work have come back normal, so as long as we have a healthy baby I will be over the moon happy.

So what's your guess? Boy or girl?
And please, kick me in the butt and tell me to get cracking on everything!

  1. I'm excited to find out! I'm a planner too. I don't know how people wait until the baby is born to know whether it's a boy or a girl. I don't have that kind of patience!

  3. I have a good friend of mine who is pregnant with me- she's a week ahead & just had her ultrasound but she didn't want to know! I keep trying to convince her to find out (because I'm dying to know too) but she won't budge. I could never do that! I want to know as soon as possible!

  4. Well you're with the majority then- a lot of my friends are saying boy as well based on how I'm carrying, how sick I've been, and the foods I've been craving. I'm still saying team pink! LOL

  5. I remember waiting to find out what my girl was going to be and it was torture!!! We ended up going to a 3D sono place two weeks before my doctor sono so we could find out sooner. LOL

  6. I'm guessing it's a boy, which probably means you're having a girl because I suck at the baby guessing game. Ha!
