20 week baby bump copy

Any guesses?…

Baby boy 2

Yep we are having a little boy! More importantly, the scan showed that he is perfectly happy and healthy in there. I had thought I was having a girl until last week when I started to wonder if it might be a boy. I’m just so happy that I’m going to have a son! It’s lovely being able to refer to him as ‘him’ and when it’s just me and James, the name we think we’ll be giving him.

So exciting!

James took the day off work for the scan so we could make a day of it. Afterwards we went to the shops and looked at baby things and bought our first baby clothes:

Mamas and papas baby grow

I just thought this was adorable! We got it from Mamas and Papas. The next few months are going to be awesome, now that we’ve had our holiday and the scan we can really start getting prepared for his arrival! James and I have been planning out how we’ll be changing up the flat and it’s going to work really well.

This last week I’ve been feeling great, another few kicks and shuffles and I’m loving my bump and the fact that I look unmistakably pregnant. I’m just really enjoying the whole experience right now :-) I’m so glad that we decided to find out the sex, I didn’t think I could feel closer to the baby than I had done, but I do. I’m certainly feeling the pregnancy glow!

If you’ve had a child, did you find out the sex? If you were having a baby would you choose to find out?

    Squeeee *happy dances*! Congratulations to you and James :D . I think its awesome that you’ve both agreed on a name already. Oh and between me and you: I only started pining for a onesie after being exposed to an influx of babygrows in the form of my baby nephew ;) .

      It most certainly does! I’m actually fancying more greens than blues for some reason :-)

    Congratulations to you both, that’s lovely news :) That baby grow is so cute – although baby clothes in general are. Personally I don’t think I’d want to find out, although I may feel totally differently if/when the time comes!

    Congratulations! It’s so exciting that you are having a little boy :) we weren’t going to find out when we first got pregnant but my grandmother got very sick so we found out for her before she passed away. I totally understand how you feel – once I could start referring to ‘her’ it felt much more real! But I think for the second one we are going to go back to the original plan and not find out – and just buy a onesie for a boy just in case! Enjoy being half way through your pregnancy!

      Thanks Bron! It definitely feels more real now, even thought I didn’t think it could feel any realer before!

    Lovely news! I am not planning on having children but if I was I would definitely find out the sex. I think it would help me feel much more connected and closer to the baby, like you say.

    Also, I think baby boys clothes are often much cooler than girls clothes. (Sea of pink, ha ha!)

      Haha I know! I had been a bit worried that boys stuff wouldn’t be as good, but it’s really cool :-)

    Ahhh how lovely!! Congratulations. I mean obviously either sex would have been lovely, but I can really imagine you guys with a boy. Does that sound weird?
    And you look so radiant and happy in that first picture – a definite pregnancy glow :)

    • Laura

      Nope I know what you mean! I really thought it was going to be a girl, but at the back of my mind a boy just kept popping up then in the last week I had a much stronger feeling that it was a boy. So chuffed :-)

    I have only recently found your blog, but is just wanted to say congratulations on your great news! Happy healthy boy on the way must be very exciting :-)! I am unsure whether I would want to find out. I have always said I wouldn’t but I don’t know if that changes when you fall pregnant.

    Congratulations :) I can understand both sides of the argument when it comes to whether it’s best to find out the sex of the baby in advance or not. I suppose some people would like the surprise, but I’d imagine it’s a lot easier to ‘get to know’ the baby when you know what you’re having…plus it removes a lot of the element of uncertainty, and there’s quite enough of that involved in labour and birth anyway !

    Congratulations! So exciting :D
    I love the tattoo too. I was actually looking at getting something similar. I love anything to do with arrows.

    How exciting! Dan and I decided during our very first conversation about having children that we would not find out the gender when we have our own, but it’s still so exciting seeing other people find out what they are having!

    Congratulations :)
    He is going to be such a cool little dude- I much prefer shopping for friends baby boys because there is at least variety, whereas with girls it is literally all pink and frilly, not really my style! But like you say the fact he is all healthy is the most important thing :)
