TGIF! Perhaps it’s me and my pregnancy brain, but I spend a good amount of time during the week making lists of things that need to be done over the weekend! Today was exciting because it was a doctor visit day! No, it wasn’t a milestone appointment, but I got to hear Bean’s heartbeat and that’s always exciting to me.
The next appointment is HUGE! We get to find out whether Bean is a boy or girl! We have our guesses and I’ve read all I can stomach of old wives’ tales to determine the sex. (Just for giggles: Based on my cravings, Bean should be a boy!)
I’ve gotten a lot of questions from friends and family, but the number one question has been…do you know what you’re having?…followed by, do you want to know? Yes yes yes! The way my brain is working these days…planning has become everything (this is so different for me)! I want to be as prepared as possible.
Will we do a gender reveal party? I’ve been going back and forth on this question for quite a while now. I worked myself up just over how we would announce our pregnancy. I’ve never looked at Pinterest so much in my life! I’m still on the fence of whether to add this to my list of things to do…it’s a lot (but so am I these days). To be continued….
Would you/Did you want to know your baby’s sex before delivery? What are your thoughts on gender reveal parties?

I can’t wait to know whether Bean is a boy or girl! Mostly so I can start shopping for our bundle of joy, which will seem weird considering my next statement. If (and that’s a big if) I ever am with child I don’t think I would want to know the sex. In my mind (which could change once I’m actually walking this path) I would want to at least try to keep gendered stereotypes from the baby as much as possible. I know it’s just about impossible to do, but I can at least not paint their room blue or buy years worth of pink tutus!
