we never wanted to choose the gender of our baby. all we've ever wanted is a healthy baby. in terms of the sex of that baby, we've always figured that God will give us whatever we are meant to have.
so when we decided to do the PGS testing on our embryos, our nurse asked if we wanted to know the gender of our embryos. we said yes. when she asked what sex embryo we wanted to transfer, we said we want the best embryo transferred regardless of sex.
as our cycle progressed and we realized that 17 embryos were going to be tested, our nurse urged us to decide what sex embryo we'd like to transfer. she said that with that high of a number of embryos, there will likely be multiple high grade normal embryos of both sex to choose from. in that case someone has to decide, either us or the doctor.
we really struggled with this. if we were to get pregnant naturally, no one would be deciding. it would be left up to nature, or chance, or God or whatever you believe in. hubby and i talked about all of the good and bad things about having a boy and then did the same with a girl. the bottom line is that there are good and bad things about both. one is not better than the other. they are just different.
so we decided not to choose. instead, we went to the beach, found a flat rock, and wrote a G and a B on each side. we threw the rock in the air and the letter that landed face up in the sand would be our answer. G for girl. B for boy.
to be continued….
don't kill me for the cliffhanger. there is a reason this story will be paused and continued in sunday night's post with our gender reveal photos. the reason is that we thought it would be so fun to see what y'all think? what do you think we are having?
do you think baby sunshine is a girl or a boy?
