    Jem,

    I remember being pregnant and worrying about what if it was a boy, with boy body parts. . . how do I clean it?

    All those thoughts went straight out the window as soon as I held my son the 1st time.

    Babies, whether they are boys or girls are awesome. Enjoy your pregnancy!

    Since we are going down memory lane...I remember the day I brought my first boy home from the hospital. I went to change his diaper and his aim was perfect...straight up and over the entertainment center and missed the tv completely!
    Jem...you are going to have a ball!! You are SO prepared for this child..keep on dreaming and planning and just enjoy the excitement with your husband.

    I learned that one as an 11 yr. old changing a diaper on a real child for the 1st time. I wasn't forewarned or if I was I must not have listened. The baby was my little cousin.

    Congratulations!! Our daughter(a teacher) is expecting their first child in early June. They are waiting until the birth to find out the sex...surprise!! So, things are gender neutral so far for the nursery and clothing. It will be the first grandchild for both sides, so lots of excitement. Enjoy your pregnancy and this miracle. Blessings.

    Jem~I wanted a boy so much when we first found out we were pregnant. Well, turns out it was a girl. It took me awhile to adjust to the thinking that I was having a girl and that that came with pink and bows and all that jazz. I couldn't imagine NOT having her now.

    This brings back memories. I wanted a girl for my first child as did my husband. We were blessed with a boy. I wanted a girl for my second child. The ultrasound tech told me I was having a girl three days before delivery. So imagine my surprise when the interpreter announced it was a boy! A boy?!?! I exclaimed. My husband thought it was a bit funny to see my reaction because he assumed I was upset since I had been told I was having a girl just a few days prior. In reality, at that moment, I couldn't have cared less. The interpreter was simply backed into a corner of this small room and mostly blocked. Her hands were up in the air. So I was simply seeking clarification to see if she did just indeed announce the gender. As much as I was looking forward to having a girl a few days before, I was perfectly content at that moment. 16 hours of labor and seeing the face I was meant to deliver was all it took. He was beautiful. By the time I was pregnant with my third child, I surprised everyone and said I was hoping for a boy.

    I love reading these stories! I just finished the Tinkerbell half marathon today and am thinking ahead to my last Disney race in 3 weeks, the Princess half marathon. All the ladies had incredible costumes and funny shirts today, so I think I'm going to make one that says Future Prince on Board for the Princess race. My bump is getting a bit bigger, so it should be really noticeable by race day. :)

    Jem,
    That is such a fun idea! Boys are fabulous! You will have so much fun!! Although, I may be a bit biased!
    Best of luck with the rest of your pregnancy!

    That will be such a cute shirt- and will make great pics!! I was thinking of you as I saw the RunDisney feed on facebook this weekend. How awesome was it? There was a 10 mile run in my town this weekend and we had such sunny mild weather that it was awesome!

    and I think I talked my cousin into meeting me in Disney for the wine and dine 1/2 in November! I was really thinking about the Princess but the airfare was insane. This will be my first Disney race!
