As I am writing this I want you to know that I love that our world gives us choices.
To each their own!
But for Ed and I we have chosen to keep the sex of our baby a surprise for all three of our births. I think this time Ed would have found out if I had any desire. But I didn't. The surprise is my favorite part of pregnancy. It gets me through those last pushes. It gives me such a thrill to call friends and family to share the news.
I am VERY Obviously pregnant at this point and the most asked question is, "Do you know what you are having?"
And I sadly have to explain no. I love the response I get after - I love finding out if others had the personality, desire, patience, etc. to find out or keep it a surprise. I love knowing what their reasoning was. Some find out because they just can't stand not knowing. Some find out so they can be more prepared with their nursery etc. Other's find out so they can make it more real with their other children. The list goes on and on.
I think the main reason most people don't find out is the sheer excitement and anticipation of not knowing. It is the one surprise in life that NO ONE can ruin for you, after your ultrasound of course. I think it keeps everyone anticipating the arrival so much more. I love pondering the idea of a girl one day and a boy the next. I love being able to dream of boy and girl names...
Which brings us to the big question...
What will we name this third little miracle?
Throw me your ideas, desires, wishes, names you love or hate?
Ed and I have not had a "serious" discussion about the name yet. We both throw out name ideas here and there. I have some definite favorites...but nothing is decided!
So do share...inspire...
