It's a surprise!

We've decided (well really, I decided) not to find out the sex of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. Our file knows now, but we don't!

I've always sort of pictured hearing, "It's a boy!" or "It's a girl!" and being totally surprised. With everything we know about conception and pregnancy after infertility and treatments, I want to be innocent about this one thing.

Today I think it's a boy because when I was feeding Baby #1, Baby #2 was kicking him in the butt. I'm not sure a little girl would be so aggressive! Recently I've thought girl since many people say, "I think it's a boy," and I like to prove people wrong. So, who knows.

My nephew said we should name the baby Larry if it's a boy, and my friend Connie thinks LuLu for a girl. We're honestly not sold on either of these names, but in the meantime Baby Larry or Baby Lulu it is!

Thanks for asking, Liz!

We won't be finding out baby's sex either. I have to be honest though - that is much more my husband's decision than my own. I'm one of those super-prepared types and would love to know ahead of time. . .yet at the same time, I do long for the old-fashionedness of waiting, like my husband does.

Larry and Lulu - cute names!

Tee hee. You're pregnant.

Go Amy!!!! I'm so glad you're not finding out the gender of the baby! How exciting! Is the secret girl name still the secret girl name? Just make sure the nurses and who all don't accidentally say her or him to you - we made sure it wasn't written in our file or anything!
