How the beans spilled....

Alright so as I told you yesterday Jordan did NOT find out the gender nor did he want to know...

I had my mind set weeks before that we would not find out...
I was even saying "babe how COOL is it that we are NOT finding out!!!"
But...
On the way to the ultrasound I started freaking out....
I mean I could find out instantly what the gender was if i wanted...
The plan was to NOT find out but the curiosity was CONSUMING me...
The reason Jordan was so hell bent on neither of us knowing is because I found out with Luke...
And he didn't and I spilled the beans...
So he knew I could not handle it...

I threw out all these reasons WHY this time was different...
How, I KNEW I could go 20 more weeks without telling him...
I even told him if I slipped up that he could name the baby whatever he wanted...
(And let me tell you...that is a powerful tool with the names he has in his arsenal)
He told me it was up to me...
BUT...
That he would be VERY, VERY upset if I spilled the beans...again.

Well I was torn.....when we got there we had to sign a paper if we wanted to know the gender...
My heart was racing...
Could I really do it? Could I go 20 more weeks without knowing? Could I really NOT tell him if I found out!?
I signed the paper just in case I caved during the ultrasound....
We go in the ultrasound a little tense...I know Jordan was weary about me finding out
but I was VERY CONFIDENT that I could keep it to myself....
The time came when the tech was ready to check the gender...
She said if we did not want to know, to look away....
Jordan immediately turned his head....
(he's got will power, people. Unlike me!)

I looked straight ahead trying to fight the urge....and then CAVED....and stared straight at the screen....
She slowly went over the area and PLAIN AS DAY a penis appeared...
I kept my mouth shut and said a little prayer for me to be able to hold this secret....
We left the ultrasound with me knowing and Jordan not knowing....

He had made comments in the ultrasound that he thought it was a boy, 
The baby was stretching the exact same way the boys do...so he was convinced it was a boy...
But I was hell bent on not giving any information up...
I mean the name of our baby was at stake people!

I did not tell anyone...
(okay maybe a few blog friends)....
But even most of my closest friends did not know...

Fast forward to a week later...
We are driving to the airport with our friends Tera and Josh, on our way to Viva Las Vegas...
We were all discussing the possibility of doing Disney next winter for the half marathon...
((you get to run through all the theme parks...AWESOME))
Tera and Josh also have kids (same age as ours- cool story about how we met to come)
But we were discussing if we would bring all the kids or just the Vincent and Luke...
I forget exactly what I said but I somehow referred to the baby as HE...
Tera called me out on it RIGHT AWAY (she had no clue that I knew the gender)
(Jordan did not even hear me say it)
"Did you just call the baby HE!?!?!?"
I stuttered in shock and said "WHAT, NO WAY"
Since she didn't know I knew, she kept saying "I swear you said HE" 
My face was bright freaking RED, I could feel Jordan's eyes on me...
((insert HOLY PANIC ATTACK))
I tried my best to talk my way out of it....
I had to explain to Tera that I, indeed knew the gender and that Jordan did not....
She instantly felt horrible....
I told her not to feel bad about it...because she had no idea...
She was actually trying to ask if I felt like it was a boy, like mother's intuition
but since I knew Jordan took it as I had just leaked the gender....

I was STUCK ladies...
...totally stuck....
So I slyly smiled his way and said in an innocent voice "Hey babe....it's a BOY!"

I am shocked that he did not throw me out of the car then and there....
(Thanks for not getting upset)
We got to the airport and got all checked in and we walked aside and I confessed indeed
just how sorry I was...and that I felt like a complete ass....
This is why I love my husband...he could have cared less...he was so sweet about it....
(maybe because we were on our way to Vegas? or just because he LOVES me!:))
He totally could have been mad at me, because hello this was a HUGE thing for him too, 
He wanted to find out AT the birth....
I totally took that moment away from him....
(I am still insanely sorry babe)
But he was HAPPY of course that we were having another boy...
Thankfully he has not tried to name the baby something crazy....
HAHA 
We are still set on Jude Edward...
but if he were to want to change it, I would in a heartbeat...

I like to hope that maybe the baby would come out a girl and we would both be shocked but trust me...
his gender was VERY VERY obvious! 

Needless to say....
NEXT BABY....I AM NOT FINDING OUT.....
I need to control my anxiety and craziness and just wait...

I am kind of glad I did not exactly spill the beans to him...It was through someone else...
so that kind of counts right!?!!..
Thanks Tera for slyly helping me spill the beans without knowing!! haha
You probably saved me from slipping up down the road...

I am so excited to have another boy....
I always joked that I would be that mom with "all boys" and I think I will be...
But I LOVE IT...
I can spoil my friend's baby girls....and giggle when they go through PMS stages! 
(joking joking)

But that is the story of how I once again leaked and WHY I should never find out a gender again....
Hope you enjoyed it....

  6. I would have never been able to keep the gender a secret so kudos for trying and lasting as long as you did. My husband said he would have been fine waiting to find out but that was never an option for me I HAD to KNOW! So of course he agreed and I think now he's glad that we both know in advance.

  16. You don't get to run through ALL the theme parks for the half. I did the half and you spend alot of time running on the highway between all the parks lol. You run through Epcot and Magic Kingdom - the marathoners get to do the whole shabang. Just wanted to give you a heads up so you weren't disappointed like I was when I signed up lol. Great run tho!

  17. Congrats and I love the name! There is no way I could keep that secret. Annnnd, there is no way that I could not find out. Maybe if I already had one of each, but otherwise I'd be freaked out about not being prepared with clothing and such. Silly I know, but I'm a planner!

  18. I don't know how I missed this?! Maybe I was just enjoying stalking your Vegas pics. I am so so excited for you I really hope that I have boys!!! I don't know if I could do it and not know... I'd like to think I would but all the gender neutral stuff scares me... At least I have a while to think about that!

  19. You've got one great guy:) I'm not sure that I could hold it in either or vice versa...to a friend maybe, but to your spouse who you see daily not sure I could hold that kind of secret.

    I'm sure he's just so happy that everything is healthy & going as planned.

  20. AHHH!!! I'm reading this way late, but I absolutely loved it. I would never, ever trust myself to keep a secret like that (but then again, I would never have to because my husband wanted to find out and I didn't). We didn't find out and loved it so much that both of us are in agreement that we won't find out with future children!
