In January, right around the 20-week mark, we found out we were having a baby boy! We asked our family to tell us their official guess ahead of time and tallied whether they thought it was going to be a “witch” (girl) or a “wizard” (boy). Overwhelming, our family thought it was a girl, so we surprised them big time with our announcement.
Interestingly, I’ve heard that pregnant women sometimes dream (correctly) about the gender of the baby. Maybe this is intuition at work, or maybe it’s just a coincidence but the night before our doctor appointment I had a very bizarre dream that in order to find out the baby’s gender they had to deliver the baby and then reinsert him into my uterus to finish cooking. In that dream, the baby was a boy. Before that I had been split between whether I thought it would be a boy or a girl, more leaning toward a girl in the beginning but was interested to see if my dream turned out to be true (well the gender part anyway). Turns out it was!
Here are our gender reveal photos, announcing our little wizard!
