Since we found out we were pregnant Isaiah and I had been pretty sure we were having a girl. We had called the baby "little girl". Most people in our life thought it was a girl. Everyone seemed so sure. We were so sure we had only picked out a girl's name. Isaiah was so sure that it was a girl he didn't want to even think about boy's names. I had a little girl's nursery all picked out.
Well I went in for a routine doctor's appointment and the midwife I was seeing that day couldn't find the baby's heartbeat. She wanted me to get an ultrasound just to make sure everything was ok. I honestly didn't complain because I got to see the baby. The ultrasound tech said everything looks great, but do you want to know the gender. Though I wasn't expecting to find out the gender at that point, I jumped at the chance. She said, "well its definitely a little boy."
I have to admit, I was totally shocked. I was so excited though. I couldn't stop smiling. I then had to tell Isaiah. I went by his work to tell him in person, and he wasn't there. I couldn't hold it in. I was thrilled. I called him and he told him. He was so shocked. He had been so sure, but he was excited.
After finding out it was a boy, we had to rethink, well everything. I started looking at new nursery ideas, that would work for a little man. And then we had to start working on a name.
I settled on a nursery but we were still very stumped on a name. It was not easy to give someone a name they would have for the rest of their life! Finally one night at about 11 pm Isaiah texted me a name, though he was about 20 feet away. I loved it! So we finally decided on the name.
Our little boy's name will be Seth Jacob. I can't wait to meet little Seth. He is such a miracle from God. I never imagined being on this journey right now. Its been a crazy journey, but God has been so real and has given me His strength when I felt like I had no more strength.
