its a boy

‘I was holding this huge secret. My husband yelled, ‘IT’S A BOY!’ He got to know first. The waiting was killing them!’: Mom stresses why she waited to find out the gender of her babies, ‘It drives everyone else INSANE!’

“‘How could you not know!?’ I was holding this huge secret. I had power nobody else could have. When you don’t know which child you’re about to meet, it gives you an unmatched energy and grit to get through the pains. There’s no comparison to the emotion before your baby comes out. Pushing was so much easier when I knew I was about to get the biggest surprise of my life. Waiting drives everyone else INSANE. People get so frustrated you chose to wait.”

‘I wanted to tell you, we’ll be naming him after you.’ He replied, ‘Really?!’: Woman tells firefighter who saved her life 21 years ago she’s naming unborn child after him, ‘I can’t wait for them to meet’

“The room filled with smoke. ‘MOVE AWAY FROM THE DOOR.’ I saw a very dim light. ‘If you can see me, come towards the light.’ I passed out. He contacted me on the 17-year anniversary of the fire. At first, I thought it was a scam. ‘Hi Vanessa, this is the firefighter from 17 years ago. I think about you often.’ We owe our lives to him. I had to let him know our big news. I’m pregnant with a son, and he’ll soon have a namesake.”

‘WHAT IS THAT?’ Our baby girl had something interesting between her legs. ‘IS THIS A BOY?!’ My husband fell to the floor. ‘We have a SON!’: Parents are surprised after birth, ‘I couldn’t believe it!’

“‘Um, BABE…’ was all I could say. He texted me, ‘I just tested positive for the flu.’ I thought, ‘SERIOUSLY?! I’m 2 days overdue with baby #3 and sick as can be, and my husband has 2 strains of the flu?!’ GREAT. ‘This is it! We have to drive on black ice in a snowstorm to have this baby.’”
