We decided to do something a little different for finding out the gender with baby #2. During the anatomy scan we had the sonographer write the gender down and put it in an envelope, which I then took to a bakery. The bakery made cupcakes and filled the inside with blue or pink based on what was in the envelope. We invited our parents and siblings over for our little "gender reveal" party the next day, and after a quick lunch, it was time for us to bite into the cupcakes.
As the mommy-to-be I wanted to be the first to see, so I got a head start on biting into my cupcake. As soon as I took a bite, I saw the blue and yelled "it's a boy!" We were all excited, and I think I had convinced most of my family that it was a boy, so no one was too surprised. I hung out with everyone for a little while, and then went up to our room to let it soak in and have a few minutes to myself. And I started bawling.
I did not NOT want a boy, but I had so wanted a sister for Noelle. And I think it was partially hormones, because I felt like I had no control over my crying self. I hate that I was such a mess, and I love Jonah so much it hurts and would not trade him for a girl for anything! It did take me a few weeks, but I started to really get on board with having a boy (even though that was what I was so sure he was from the time I got pregnant!)
