#PregnancyProblems Weeks 13 to 18

Well we finally made to the reveal of the gender of our second child. I have to say that this pregnancy has left me wondering if maybe this time around I was going to be having a son. My wife has been very sick all the time, She has craved sour pickles, her belly was what seemed to me, carrying the baby very high. All signs were pointing to a boy.

We decided that we were going to wait and find out with our family. We had the ultrasound tech place the gender in a sealed envelope and we gave it to a trust friend and that went and bought silly string. After covering the cans so we would not see the color, they were placed in a gender natural bag and stapled it shut.

We gathered our family around at the local park. We provided doughnuts and water but we knew that the only thing they cared about was what was in the bad. After handing out the can we stood together and counted down. 1…2…3… SPRAY!!!!

It was revealed that we were going to have a… GIRL!!!!

Yes another girl! I have to admit that I was a little upset. I swore up and down that this one was going to be a boy. I think that it would have been great to have a boy cause it would have been a new adventure for my wife and I. Unfortunately, the world had other plans for us. I have to say that as I sat and thought about it, I am actually really excited about having another girl. K-Dub loves me to pieces and I she is really a Daddy’s girl. So as of today I am ok with another girl.

As for a name, Everly Mae will be joining our family this October. We are already so in love!

(#5) The Gender Is Revealed

Well it’s been 20 weeks in the making and I mean that literally. Finally Brittney and I were going to find out the sex of our baby. We have been so excited for this moment and could not wait to call our kid by their real name instead of referring to them as “IT” all the time.

When we got to the doctor’s office we just could not wait to get back there and found a since of relief as the girl called our name. We went back in a rather large room and Brittney jump on the table and pulled her shirt up like a pro. As the technician was performing the ultrasound we held hands and smiled at the glimpse of our baby’s growth. It is amazing watching it move around. When the technician finally told us what we were having, we both looked at each other and smiled.

Before Brittney got pregnant she told me that she wanted to do a Gender Reveal Party. I have never heard of these and if I am being honest here, I thought that it sounded stupid. I did go along with the idea.

For anyone who does not know what this type of party consist of, please let me tell you. You bake a cake with the inside dyed either pink or blue and call your families and either go out to dinner or host one at your house. Real simple right? The hardest part is keeping it a secret until the party.

We chose to have our dinner at Olive Garden in Monroe. Both of our families came and we enjoyed a really nice meal with light conversation. Then the moment everyone was waiting for. The cake! We brought the cake out and had our families gather around as Brittney and I cut into it and revealed that it was………

A GIRL!!!!!

Brittney and I are so happy to announce that we are going to have a daughter. Our families are very excited and can’t wait to welcome the newest addition to the clan. Now with only 20 more weeks left to go, I can say that I am truly excited to hold my baby girl for the first time. Karsyn Leigh Funderburke is going to be real daddy’s girl and I am sure I will be wrapped around her finger. Can’t wait! She makes my heart melt already!
