It’s a boy!

open door

So, le bebe is a boy! We found out on Friday. Lots of people had predicted that it’s a girl (on the basis of bump shape, the fact I’ve not put on much weight, that I haven’t had much heartburn, that I’m ‘relaxed’ (this from someone who had never met me before, so for all they knew I could have been in a comparative stress frenzy), that my wedding ring went in a circle not a line when dangled over the bump). My own gut feeling at the 13 week scan was that it was a boy. At the end of the day, it’s just a 50/50 chance isn’t it.

And I actually had no preference, so I was happy either way. While I’m very happy to finally be able to call him ‘him’ and not ‘it’, and to start giving him a name when discussing with Dave, I don’t really see how it’s such a big deal anyway. I gather from GOMI that some bloggers have ‘gender reveal parties’ (one involving a treasure hunt) but really who is going to care that much about the gender of someone else’s child? I feel a bit silly even doing a special post on it!

    Gender reveal parties? wow…okay… haha, anyway, congratulations on finding out the news, it means, as you said, you can use a pronoun aside from ‘it’ and start thinking about names! 🙂

    Don’t feel silly doing a special post on finding out! That is exciting that you can work on names now and call him a “him” now, instead of “it”! I’m glad you didn’t make it complicated! Congratulations!

    lol, now I feel a little bit silly for caring, but I do 🙂 I’m so excited for you both!!

    I read the gender reveal party thing on GOMI and didn’t know whether to laugh or cry… but I think a wee blog post to say is not on the same scale at all. Congratulations again on everything! xxx

    Yay! I may be silly for getting excited but I’m quite excited to hear the gender, you’re gonna have such a lovely wee boy! Even more congratulations to both of you xo

    Now you have a gender to go with your “baby” and not have a general name for it (“baby”!) Congrats on your sweet baby boy!

    Congratulations! 🙂

    If nothing else, you won’t have to worry about ending up with pink gifts 😛 And you know what colours to use in le bébé’s room!

    So the next milestone will be figuring out what name to give this wee bundle of joy 😀

    Yay congrats!! We’re having a boy too. 😀 We had a gender reveal party and it was a blast– it was pretty much just for family and a couple of close friends, all of which were CRAZY interested in finding out the sex (and had been speculating about it nonstop, haha), so it was super fun for everyone! Although of course it’s exciting no matter how you find out.

    Meine Mama sagt immer “Egal ob Junge oder Mädchen, Hauptsache gesund!” und so sehe ich das auch! Trotzdem gratuliere ich nochmal zum Babyboy 🙂

    Congrats! I had no preference either and we didn’t find out sex so ohhh the strange predictions we heard.

    That’s so exciting! At least now you know you can start the important task of knitting adorable tiny clothes for him! And start investing in lots of things with dinosaurs on them 🙂

    It’s just impressive to me that sonograms are such a routine part of pregnancy now that knowing the sex of the baby is a foregone conclusion these days. I don’t think I had a sonogram with any of my pregnancy and never knew until the day of birth.

    Woo hoo! Baby dungarees are THE BEST! I put my girl in them too, of course, but having a boy means it is de rigeur! 😉
