We were clueless as to what the sex of baby number two would be. On one hand my symptoms have been pretty much exactly the same as they were on Aria, on the other the tradition in my family seems to be to have a girl followed by a boy (I say tradition, my cousin and my sister did this!). Then of course there was the fact that I can only picture myself with a girl, and that we couldn’t think of any boy names. I really thought we were having a girl, or at least I did until the gender predictions suggested that we were having a boy!
Thankfully we didn’t have long left to wait after the gender predictions, as our NHS 19/20 week scan came just two days after. As soon as we left our scan I contacted local business, The Little Things, to arrange my gender reveal balloon. She was super accommodating and had it ready within a few hours which meant we were ready to do our gender reveal!
We are so excited to meet our new baby and we love that knowing the gender allows all of us, especially Aria, to form a special bond. We already have our name but we will be keeping that quiet until the new addition makes an appearance.
