It’s a BOY! We’re having a BABY BOY!!!! After months of calling the baby in my belly, “HE-SHE” just to be fair, we are now dropping the “SHE” and calling it a “HE” officially. I was actually bummed when we stopped “HE-SHE” since it was a term of endearment Pat and I really had fun with. But I am also extremely happy to know that we are having a BOY! I’ll let you in on a little secret, I actually knew from the very start that it would be a boy. I just felt it. I just knew in my heart. But as a newbie mom, with zero experience, I didn’t want to just go for my gut feeling although most of my friends say that once you acquire your mommy spider senses, it’s almost so accurate it’ll freak you out! Hahaha!
Yesterday’s ultrasound with my OB GYNE confirmed it. My doctor said “Oh, There’s the TURTLE” referring to his putotoy and Patrick and I just kept laughing and crying at the same time. I just love our doctor, Dr. Cora De Jesus of St Lukes BGC. She has such a calm and composed demeanor, I think one of the reasons why I’m enjoying this pregnancy is because I’m bouncing off her chill energy. Believe me, it helps to have a doctor who is not overly panicky and paranoid 🙂 As a patient, you’ll be taking your cues from her/him so best to get someone with a positive (but still realistic) attitude. When Patrick and I left the clinic she told him “Your son will have such an elegant nose!” NAKKKS! Elegant nose ka pala Pat! How random diba, but still so cute of her to say!
To say that Pat was thrilled to be a dad to a boy is an understatement. Let’s just say hindi na niya ako pwedeng awayin in the next YEAR! Hahaha! And so Patrick now has license to buy some Nike kicks for this baby. He said kahit wala daw damit anak namin, lampin at Air Jordans lang, okay na siya! Hahaha, priorities?!?! I love that we’re having a boy, but having a girl does have it’s remarkable perks too (they’re extra malambing, you can dress them up, they can be your mini me!) –I think whether you’re having a boy or girl, the excitement is just the same 🙂
Of course, we are continuing to pray for a HEALTHY BABY BOY but more than his health, we pray for his heart. It’s been our constant prayer that we be blessed with a boy that has a HEART for OTHERS and a HEART on fire for GOD! That to me would be the best, best gift!!!
We already have a few names in mind, but I’d like to keep them between me and Patrick for now…just so we can hold on to it and enjoy this little secret name game as husband and wife. 🙂 🙂 Picking a name is so much fun and hopefully we find one that will really make this child a living testimony of God’s goodness and faithfulness in our lives—and that will sound cool and pogi too, aba syempre naman!!!! Kailangan noh!!! HAHAHA!
On separate note, I’m sorry if I haven’t been updating as often as I used to. I promised myself (and even worked on my calendar) that I would go back to regular programming by next week. I miss blogging and keeping you guys posted, it’s just been so hard to keep up with this pregnancy, running our companies, my hosting gigs, and other work in between. But thanks for still checking up on this blog from time to time. I will not disappoint you guys, I owe it to you to churn out more positive content so next week you’ll see more frequent posts!
