But What Is It???
So remember way back when when I said we WEREN'T finding out what our baby is going to be??? Ya.....things changed. And just to clarify, I was DEAD SET on not finding out. I seriously had no temptation to find out, and I still feel like it would have been soooo much fun to not find out. My lovely, wonderful husband started being not so lovely and wonderful though. He began putting pesky whisperings into my mind. "Come on Janna, let's just find out". "Once we know we can decorate the nursery". "Look how cute this outfit it....too bad we don't know what it is".
HOW CRUEL!! Anyway, long story short it was killing me, and I caved. What can I say, I'm a people pleaser. It's a serious issue. I still really wanted to keep it a secret from everyone else though, just so that it was still somewhat of a surprise, and because I knew it was driving everyone crazy not knowing, and that secretly made me happy. haha I'm cruel like that. Well....I should have known better. I knew Stephen couldn't do it. He assured me he wouldn't tell ANYONE!!! I had no problem believing he wouldn't purposely tell anyone, but I knew how excited Stephen would be after we found out what it was, and I knew it would just slip.
Well, after we came home from the ultrasound we were still debating whether or not we were going to keep it a secret, and we decided we would. I obviously still had my doubts. At best I thought it would last a week without it getting out. Crazy me. It lasted exactly an hour and a half. Stephen decided to call his parents and let them know how the ultrasound went...and out it came...smooth as a baby's bottom. I honestly wasn't upset at all. It was secretly eating away at me from the inside out. LITERALLY!!! Funny, kinda gross story, during the ultrasound the baby was munching away...at the placenta. BAH!! Obviously not literally but that's what it looked like. We had a good laugh about it. So the secret's out now, and we called all our family and let them know, so we now make it blog official.
