I Want A Baby

I have no pictures.

Just posting that I am 20 weeks along, which means half way.
If I were running, I'd be mentally talking myself up right now that I can totally do this.
I'd say "just do what you just did again"
But I think running is harder than being pregnant.
I've never eaten two pieces of cheesecake while running.

A week from today we find out if we are having a boy or a girl!
I asked my mom to come because I knew it would mean the world to her since I don't really let anybody at my births. I'm private like that I guess? I'd rather have a stranger off the street see me birth than someone I'm close to and love. Weird.

Anyway, if you want to know my real opinion on this baby's sex it's this:

At first, I wanted a girl. Two girls! Sisters! So much cuteness filling this house.
The thought of a boy just seemed like a big disappointment, because all I know is girl.
Circumcision, getting peed on at diaper changes, gross clunky shoes and baggy jeans? YUCK!
Tshirts that say the dumbest things like "daddy's all star" and "team captain". Why? WHY?!
Then they hit puberty and are running around all the time and they smell awful.
Girls at the playground are soft and sweet and giggly.
Boys are like wild monsters, throwing dirt, pretending to be super heroes (vomit) and not agile whatsoever.

But then...I just knew that the baby in my womb was a boy. So I wrapped my mind around it.
And then I started to get excited about a boy. I wanted a boy!
A boy that snuggles with me and ultimately grows up to be either as good looking as my brothers or my husband? Yes! 
A guy that is like cool and mature and makes me proud by being all cool and manly? Yes!
Someone to carry on the Kiehn name and our family's legacy? Yes!
Someone to take out the trash? Yes!
I don't have to dress him in all the ugly clothes...I can be creative and find good boy ones out there (kevin thinks the clothes thing is so silly but, come on. It's fun to have your babies looking cute. Just like how you think your dog looks cuter after the groomers. Just like how you feel and extra pep in your step when you look cute that day!)


So I was all set and all excited. It's a boy. How cool. This is great. Ok, got it. Cool.
Having a boy means one less wedding we have to pay for.
Less makeup and drama as teens.
Then all my clients yesterday started telling me about how TOTALLY different their pregnancies were and the sex didn't matter at all. That this baby could very well be a little girl.

WILL SOMEONE PLEASE STOP THE ROLLER COASTER?!?!

haha! So here's where I stand:

I want a baby.

I really don't care at all what it is. 

 

I'll letcha guys know in a week if I'm going to be peed on or paying for another wedding.

Love this post, Jessica! That's exactly what happened to me too during this pregnancy. Every day I thought something different.

It will be wonderful either way!!

Ohh I was sooo opposite when I found out we were expecting #2. I just KNEW it was a boy and wanted a boy SO bad! I have a 3 year old nephew who I practically raised from baby to 1 year old and I fell in love with the idea of having a little boy someday. Little boys are SO much fun. Not only that, there is NO ONE like mama's to boys. This I know. I have three brothers and they all adore my mom and same with Brice and his brothers.

I can't wait to experience both! I feel so blessed I'm having a son and you know what...boy or girl, you will love it! Can't wait to find out who's growing in your womb! So exciting!

Kari Beth said...

For some reason I think a girl....but we'll know in a week in a week! Can't wait!!!!

How exciting! I didn't know if you guys were going to find out and I was just about to text Janet to find out and I read your blog instead. I was bummed when I heard my little one is a boy, but the idea has grown on me too. I will make sure not to purchase any "Daddy's All Star" clothing for you guys even though I must admit I have some of that already hanging in my closet, but when Kohl's was having their winter clearance and I had a 20% off on top of that, I didn't really care what things said. Looking forward to hearing the news!

This is ALL SO TRUE!! I was so different with all my pregnancies and they were all the same sex. But either way, once you find out what it is, you'll be super excited and be so happy it's a _____ and not a ______. Besides, if you have a ton of kids, in the end, you're bound to have at least one of each!

There ARE super cute clothes for boys now. I see a difference even between Miller and Rhett. There are some things I see for them and I geniunely think it's the cutest thing ever!! Totally not silly for you to be concerned about that (ahhhem...Kevin!), but don't worry. There really are cute boy clothes!!

Can't wait until next week!!! EEEEEKKKKK!!!!

Sheryl said...

Can.not.WAIT! I'm soooo excited to be there!:):):)

Annie said...

It's funny how that is exactly our story (but I LOVE baseball so I LOVE the "daddy's all-star shirts...sorry if there are some in the box). Either way it works out but I hope you have a boy...having both is an awesome feeling; such a different and amazing love from each baby. I am EXCITED to find out if you will be peed on (never been peed on here but have laughed my butt off as he pees on the couch and I wonder for a split second "where is THAT coming from") or paying for another wedding!
