Aside from actually giving birth, it was one of the most surreal moments of my life. If I had to compare it to anything, I would say it was like the moment you realize that you’re getting proposed to, and you realize your life will never be the same.
A moment where life as you knew it has been altered forever, and you are forever changed.
One minute you’re the mom of two girls, one boy.
The next moment, the mother of…
Two girls, TWO BOYS!
I have never been so excited and filled with eager anticipation for the future as I am right now. I would have been ecstatic with the results, no matter what the gender turned out to be.
After the shock wore off a bit, my husband turned to me and said, “I’m so happy for him (my son), he’s going to have what I never had, a brother.”
We don’t come from families of boys. You see, he had four sisters, I had three sisters, we’re not used to having brothers around.
I was worried and had a lot of anxiety that I would regret finding out the gender before the birth. But right now, regret is the farthest thing from my heart.
My heart swirls with happiness for the future.
I am so glad that we found out the way we did, these photos will forever be one of my favorite things.
