Ambivalence

Posted on 26. Oct, 2010 by pinky in Pinky

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.

There can be no other way

After my last blog post about my indecision regarding finding out the gender, I may have come to decision… sort of.

Amongst the comments were some interesting arguments that kept me reconsidering. You see, up to the point of writing I had been leaning towards keeping it a surprise. Maintaining the magical mystery for a few more months, as it were.

However, I find myself asking how I can look at a sonogram of this new life and not see its gender. Even if it weren’t clear, would I want to rob myself of the experience by purposefully avoiding seeing something? What is known, can never be unknowed again… (barring alzheimers, etc. of course!)

No, I’d much rather soak up every second, commit every last movement to memory and have that intrepid heartbeat crescendo through my mind whenever I think of what is to come. I would rather know the gender for the sole purpose of it being the first step (of many) closer to my unborn child. One more thing I can know already.

Plus, halving the “discussions” over names can only be healthy ;)
