I think I need to learn to chill

I am a planner. I like to have everything planned out and thought through so I make sure everything goes smoothly. Well at least attempt to have things go smoothly.

Here is my problem. I am going absolutely crazy not knowing if we are having a boy or a girl! I have done as much of our registry as I possibly can without knowing the sex of our baby. I am I guess what you would say is ocd. I need things to match and I need to have extras of everything. I have our play yard, swing, stroller and all of that good stuff matching and it's gender neutral which normally I would not be ok with but the pattern is just so adorable I couldn't resist. Plus it actually works out so that we can keep it for future babies. Those are about the only things I can have be gender neutral though. Which presents my problem. I can't finish a huge chunk of the registry without knowing if we are having a boy or a girl.

It's really pathetic I know. But that's how ocd I am. If I have a girl I have to have pink or purple burping cloths. BURPING CLOTHS!! Something the baby is just going to spit up all over. It is ridiculous.

And I know I know, we still have the majority of the pregnancy left for things like that. The downer is that we have to do the baby shower November 27 because we are having it back home in NY and it might be the last time we can travel that far. I really want to have a baby shower knowing what we are going to have.

Ugh, I hate being so obsessive. I guess it's really good for other things though. Our house will never have clutter and will always be clean. It wont look like someone threw a bunch of mismatched furniture into a house because I think my head would explode if my house didn't flow ascetically. This goes all the way down to the fact that things have to be symmetrical in the house.

I'm so strange.

I Love You Mr. Sykes<3 Thanks for loving me even though I'm crazy<3

  1. I thought you could find out as early as 15-16wks... maybe you'll get lucky and find out before!

  2. You are supposed to if you get lucky so fingers crossed!

  3. You will totally know before your baby shower. If you REALLY wanna know for one of those 4d ultrasounds. They can tell you at 15 weeks. Plus it's so cool to see your lil bean in there. Down side's like $300-400. But hey...if ya REALLLLLLLLLLLY wanna know! :) I think it's a girl!
