We have another ultrasound appointment on Friday. This is the big one – when they should be able to tell us definitively about the sex of the Cleakers. We are going to find out so we can help prepare ourselves and get ready for the twins. The last ultrasound technician was very sure that they are most likely boys. I think that having boys would be awesome, but if I’m going to be honest, I got totally nervous when she first told us she thought they were boys.
I think having boys will be a ton of fun – but I’m also very aware of the challenges that fathers and sons have. I don’t know any guy who hasn’t had issues with his dad – and I guess the possibility of having twin boys just got me a little nervous – that I now had two chances to screw up.
When we first found out they were twins, I thought it would be really awesome to have one girl and one boy. But then we found out they were identical. I know that both girls and boys have their own challenges and joys, and I know that we’ll be thrilled with our twins, no matter what their gender is.
So – tell me about your experience of finding out the gender. Were you excited? Were you fine either way? Were you really hoping for one and getting another?
