I am getting used to the idea of a boy. Besides in Dutch scrabble ( the only one we have) boy is worth 12 and girl 6. Sadly a sentiment that still seems prevalent even today. I was surprised, or maybe not that surprised by some of the responses to the news that there is a blue bun in the pink oven.

Do you think boys are still valued more than girls?

Ambivalence

Are you allowed to feel this? I was so sure that baby was a girl it was easy to say that I did not mind. Having one of each means that really I don’t mind. I think I just got my brain so set on having a girl that it has seemed like a bit of a loss to suddenly not have the HER, that girl I had in my mind. We had almost agreed on a girls name, agreed is a strong word, should I say we had a lot more options that we both liked. I am very girly and I love doing arty crafty things with girls and making things pretty.

I have a lovely boy, he is gentle and yet the epitome of a boy, he loves cars, airplanes and all things that go. But he is very affectionate and sweet. I know that this is not always the case and have had a few friends say that they wish their boys would sit down and hug them and be loving at times. I guess this is what I am worried about. I grew up with all girls, my first was a girl. I just think I am better at girls

And yet my boy has such a soft place in my heart. I love him so much and could not imagine life without him. He has the longest eye lashes and is so cute at the moment he can just melt you.

I know that with The Geek being a very present dad and with his family, brothers and my Dad and other wonderful male friends that both Pinklet Boy and the new Blue baby will have lots of good male role models. I guess I don’t have to worry about that.

Still girls baby stuff is so much cuter, I have to walk past the pink with a little pang in my heart.

So the #superpinkbun is a…

Boy


boy

Today we had our scan at 4pm, what a long time to wait. I was a bit nervous as I was so convinced that it is a girl that I was worried I would be shocked if it was a boy. Not that ever minded either way it is just that I have been certain from the beginning that it was a girl. Baby took ages to show us and at first Dr thought it was a girl. But eventually he showed and then kept showing.

I was also worried about the low placenta from the bleeding scare before and worried that it might be placenta previa ( the placenta totally covering the cervix) and then I would not be able to have a normal birth as cesearan is always needed in these cases. But placenta is fine.

The Geek is grinning.

Here are the HNT Rules,

So today I deviate from bump pics and do some boobs instead. This is not the first time by long shot that these boobs have been blogged about. On my personal blog Pink Hair Girl they have been blog ad nauseum. I had breast implants last year which was a big thing for me leaving a destructive marriage left huge scars, especially about being flat chested. I love my new boobs, they do not define me but they have helped a lot in healing and accepting myself. Here are the before and after pics. I have to laugh, they look so much better now they are a year older and settled. Some other mentions (here and here ) Continue Reading →

question mark

So I was thinking it might be nice to see what you guys would like to ask us. It might also be a way to get a bit more out of The Geek ;-)
Post the question in the comments and then we will answer in a post depending who the question was directed at.
Come on this is the chance, anything at all you want to know about us, the baby, the plans etc. I am not shy and The Geek is uber shy so go for it no limits.
