Why Baby's Gender is the Least Important Aspect of My Pregnancy

I remember when I was pregnant with my first child, finding out the gender was all I could think about. Will I have a princess or a prince? Should I stock up on pink outfits or blue outfits? I had to pick out what bedding to get for the nursery! I felt like I just had to know. I felt I wouldn’t be prepared for the baby unless I knew the gender. After the birth of my daughter, I realized her gender was the least important aspect of my pregnancy.

The Sweetest Sentimental Sweater Set Story

Every so often, a mother has the incredible foresight to create something so special and heartfelt for her child. She understands the sentimental value is actually priceless and will be cherished for years to come.

My cousin recently posted a picture of her nephew and father wearing matching sweaters that her mother had originally made for her son and husband 25 years ago. Imagine the joy that filled Mom’s heart when she saw her first grandson wear the sweater she had made for her first son all those years ago! The constant factor being her husband, now a grandfather, that still fit in his sweater! Way to go, Grandpa!

In fact mom had such wonderful foresight, that she created two identical adult sweaters, one for her husband and one for her grown son.

Never Say Never: My Journey to a Joyful Home Birth

When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I didn’t think much about where I would have the baby. At the hospital, of course, just like everyone else. I took a birthing class that informed me about options for things I would like to include in my birth plan like lighting, room temperature, and laboring position (granted I didn’t get an epidural). Besides that, I didn’t have much of choice in the whole process. Once I reached my due date, I found out that I didn’t even have the option to continue past it. My doctor induced me on that exact day.
