It's A Boy?

As a mom-to-be I have a lot of fears. Some are rational, some are totally irrational. I fear that I won't be able to handle the pressure and stress of working full time and raising a baby. That is a rational fear.

My irrational that when I give birth the doctor is going to say "Congratulations! You have a healthy baby girl!"

This is a huge fear because I've been told I'm having a boy. Take a look at this ultrasound, that's a boy right?

I just have this fear that somehow the ultrasound is wrong and there I will be with a ton of boy clothes, and a boy themed nursery, and a boy name all picked out, yet I'll be holding my little girl and I'll be totally unprepared. She'll have to wear a lil' slugger onesie home from the hospital and won't have any dolls or frilly pink things in her nursery. I am very aware this is an irrational fear. But, I do have people that will be on standby, ready to run to Target to buy pink stuff...just in case.


  1. I"m pretty sure it's a boy, but just in case, I'll make sure you have something other than "little slugger" to take the baby home in. Of all the things to be worried about!

  2. Hah! I just came home from the doctor's office and they CLEARLY pointed out that I'm having a boy too and I started having the same exact fear!! I liked that my doctor said that nothing is 100% but if he's wrong, he will personally babysit my kid for life. I plan to take him up on that in the slim chance...

  3. I know the feeling - I've seen on three different occasions that I'm definitely having a girl, but I still have that fear in the back of my mind that "she" will actually be born a "he"! I think it's a normal fear...but try not to worry about it! :)
