"Oh, I don't care what we're having, just as long as he/she is healthy. . . "
It's funny to hear this statement now that I know our baby has a 50% chance of inheriting my mutated gene, and either having or carrying severe hemophilia a. I don't say the above statement anymore. Now, it's like this, "I do care what we're having because knowing we are having a boy or a girl greatly effects our birth plans. Matt and I choose to find out the gender to best plan the safest most appropriate birth. I want a healthy birth, but I want the baby exactly how God hade him/her whether that means 'healthy' or 'hemophiliac' or any other genetic disorder. As far as wanting a girl or boy more. . . no. I want the baby we have to have the safest birth possible. I wouldn't change a thing about him/her." Although, I know I am thinking too much into the traditional statement for which this post is named, this was on my heart, and BWB is the best place for me to share it. Now, off I go to eat a healthy breakfast for my sweet little one. <3
