Update to my post like a month ago!

So I doubt anyone would remember, but I made a post asking for advice on gender disappointment. I really wanted a boy and was scared Iโ€™d get a girl and be upset about it.

BUT

I got my anatomy scan recently and Iโ€™m having a girl!

When the tech told me, I didnโ€™t have a negative reaction at all! I was honestly just so speechless at what my body was doing. I thought it was so incredible. Iโ€™ve really come to terms with her, and knowing the gender has been such a huge help in feeling connected. We bought a couple clothing items and now Iโ€™m so excited! My fiancรฉ gets so emotional when he sees those little dresses. ๐Ÿ’œ

I thought I wanted the name to be Anastasia, but once I saw her on the ultrasound, my mind just told me โ€œno. Lydia fits betterโ€. So we agreed on Lydia Marlene. Marlene was my grandmotherโ€™s name. I was so close to her and her death rocked my whole world.

We canโ€™t wait to meet you, my darling!
