Well, tomorrow is the day...Micah finds out the gender of her baby. I am pretty excited to know because I won't be going to the ultrasound. Her mom is going and probably her boyfriend, so I feel like I should stay away. I wish I'd been more a part of her life during this time, but she hasn't really asked for me to be and seeing that I'm "just" a stepmom, I don't force myself on her. I don't think she mind, in fact, she'd probably be appeciative for me to go, but I don't want to intrude. It's ironic actually...I remember her having the same feeling with me back when I was pregnant with Jenna. My how the tables have turned!
Like me back then, I fear she has no idea what she's in for. Of course, do any of us really know what we are in for when we have our first child? I think not. But perhaps this will be the turning point for her to find herself, give herself completely to someone other than herself. We can only hope!
I know many of you that are ready are family, so you are as anxious to know as I am. I will post as soon as I hear something and of course email everyone too. My guess is a girl, although I think Micah kind of wants a boy because she heard they were easier. Any moms of boys want to object!? I have heard the opposite...but then ultimately, like all the other moms, she really doesn't care what it is just as long as it's healthy. So...we wait.
More to come...
