So, I keep forgetting I’m pregnant! I mean I am past the horrible first trimester and in the “honeymoon” phase so don’t have the constant yucky feeling to remind me. Also having three children in the house (one under 2) occupies me enough during the day for me to… forget! Then, on Wednesday, I had my 12 week scan and there was my little bundle inside me like they said he was all along. And then the excitement flooded in! Until I forget again!
I’m hoping all the distraction will make the time fly by and suddenly I’ll have little baby x in my arms (after a miraculously painless and short labour YA RAB!). Now I know it is ridiculously early (I was 12 weeks 6 days when I had the scan) but while the technician was doing the scan we saw something that definitely looked boy like. The technician said she cannot be 100% sure but she’ll be really really surprised if it turned out to be a girl.
So, it looks like 3 boys and a girl Insha Allah (God willing). I never imagined I’d have more boys than girls! And while I know the most important thing is that the baby is healthy I did hope for a sister for J. I LOVE having sisters… I can’t imagine my life without them. I was hoping J would have the same thing.
I told my husband and his reaction was “Right, I’m going to spoil her then”. Which is not true cause knowing my husband he wouldn’t let them get away with a hint of selfishness let alone being spoilt. J’s reaction to the news that it maybe a boy was “I told you I wanted a girl one! Now they’re going to be more than us!”.
Thinking about it though, there are so many girls in our family who are close to J. As close as sisters! So, for all you female cousins out there and second cousins my daughter will be spending a LOT of time with you all! You better not treat her like a friend! SISTERS ONLY! So that means constant bickering, being brutally honest, one or two wrestling matches, borrowing clothes, getting angry because of borrowed clothes, sleep overs, fits of giggle and lots of love.
Of course this is all going on the assumption that it actually is a boy and what we saw wasn’t the umbilical cord! We’ll find out soon enough.
BTW! Notice anything different?? I got my own domain name :D Now you can just type http://www.yamaamaa.com and voilà! You’re here :D I feel all grown up and independent!
How important are sisters? Is it really terrible to be an only girl? Or really amazing?
