Hi Mommies!

So I have some new news! This #momboss is about to be a new mama of 3, come spring! I AM BABY has a new little arrival that will greet us, hopefully with some nice warm weather! Luckily I now have more of an excuse for hibernating! Now I find people almost congratulate you for staying inside. In the summer there is so much pressure to be outside and constantly doing SOMETHING! I mean some times I like to just veg out and enjoy the AC!

So this time around I have decided not to find out the sex of the baby. It is making it extra exciting as we knew with both our daughter and son what we were having! My husband didn’t want to know with either, so I decided I would let him have this LAST one and we could keep it a surprise! I don’t know about you, but I am a planner! I don’t like to wait to know whether or not I am going to do the nursery based on if it is a girl or boy right?! Who likes gender neutral?? I mean come on! No one wants some white/ yellow/ green sleepers with a tiger or giraffe, that are always more boy geared! My idea is to buy 3 or 4 sleepers of both boy and girl, and bring them washed to the hospital. Then once we find out the sex of the baby, Ill ask Gramma to wash the bags full of whichever gender it happens to be, and take the other bag back! Thoughts on that? What did you all do? Send me a message on social media I would love to hear your thoughts and comments! @iambabydotca.

I’ll be honest, I feel like I am the only person in the world right now that is waiting until D day to find out the gender of their baby! I mean this isn’t the 80’s! The only reason our parents never found out is because there wasn’t an option. They only had an ultrasound if there was a serious problem am I right? I think either way, if you find out or if you keep it a secret, it is still so incredibly special! No matter what, you will always remember the moment you found out regardless if you are in the delivery room or not! With our daughter, we were living in California at the time, and we went to a 3D ultrasound place to find out at 16 weeks. We decided to hit Starbucks to get some drinks before our appointment. They had the ‘Kenya’ coffee all lined up on the displays! I knew it was a sign, as I A: wanted a girl and B: I wanted that to be her name! Low and behold an hour later we found out it was all coming true! And with our son Kingston, well….. lets just say that there was absolutely no doubt that he was a boy. That thing was taking up the whole screen! I don’t know about any of you other parents, but there is no way to hide a boy! With baby #3, I went for my 20 week ultrasound and told the technician that I didn’t want to know the gender. She assured me that I wouldn’t see anything as she wouldn’t point the wand near the private area. A part of me feels that I saw a penis, but I don’t know if it was just me wanting to see something (because I am so nosey, and I am not the type that waits for anything! I am the type to run a butter knife along the tape seam of all of my Christmas gifts before Christmas just so that I know what I am getting before hand!) or if I actually did see something for real! I guess I will find out in a few months!

Wishing all of my fellow preggo mama’s a healthy and happy pregnancy! Please share your cravings, crazy dreams, leg cramp stories and even if you laughed and peed and need support…shoot me a message on social ! Would love to hear from you:)

All the best, until next time Mommies
