First off, I want to wish all the Fathers, Father-in-laws and to-be-fathers a wonderful and Happy Fathers Day. Today is a day your family celebrates how important you are to them, your role as a father, and how much the world would not be the same without your presence. Although your love, presence, and role as a father is to be celebrated everyday, today helps us remind how wonderful and important you are to those around you.
A few family and friends asked me why I still have not announced the gender, especially after my 20 week ultrasound. Truth be told, during that ultrasound, my baby was super active and the ultrasound technician made a guess, but also wasn’t confident just because he was more active than expected. We did share this exciting news with our close family and friends but before publicly announcing it, I felt it would only be right to have a stronger confirmation first.
I had a friend tell me the other day, I feel like your pregnancy is the longest pregnancy ever! I giggled, thinking to myself, “Yup, I feel the same way”. Well, I’m so thrilled to say that two thirds of my pregnancy is over and I’ve officially entered my third trimester. My feelings are all over the place. Of course, I am so excited and ready to meet our little baby as we embark on this journey as new parents. I know billions of people in this world have children everyday, but I particularly feel so blessed and honoured to bring our baby into this world and shower it with so much love and care. My life is already revolving around our little one and even more so I love our baby so much that I already feel so protective over him/her.
