Yes, I'm going to find out. I did with my previous 2 as well. But I'm not going to share with hubby - he wants the surprise. It wasn't as hard to keep it from him as I thought. I just made sure I made very genderless references. It was so sweet when my girl was born because he looked at me with a tear in his eyes and said "it's a girl" and I just replied, "yeah, I know....". with breast feeding, you just have to try and get as much boob in the little mouth as possible - not just the nipple - then it pretty much just happens. Just wait until your milk comes in about 3 days after the birth....wow what a feeling. Dolly Parton eat your heart out!! Mine sprayed across the room!! Ha ha.
You deserve a big bear hug! Babes arrive when they're good and ready is my experience.None of those old tricks worked for me for either of my previous 2!!When he does make an appearance, your world will turn on it's ear and seem to never stop, so try and enjoy this last few days before he arrives.Your next teary challenge will be establishing breastfeeding (if you're going to do that) and let me tell ya, it HURTS for the first little bit but if you can stick with it, it's kinda nice.With my first, I lost my 'plug' at about 3 in the morning and was well into regular contractions by 7 and he was born at 3.26pm that day. My daughter was induced so no idea really about her (she was 12 hours as well). Trust me, you will KNOW when it's the real thing!! MWA XXooXX
