I was talking to my wife about the events that proceeded our 20 week u/s tonight. She pulled out her phone to read me a text from my inlaws that she had saved from the morning of the u/s back in February; it was from her mom. Here you go: "send me pictures of baby Jensen as soon as you get them." We replied, "there is a really good chance HE is a SHE." In which she sent back, "Hold your tongue!!!" There are more examples of this, but I dont feel the need to type more.
The tension between the grandparents over something that is beyond our control has made me crazy. You do not, and will never, fully understand the pressure, tensions, and strain put upon us for something that we KNOW we cannot control. Sasha and Housewife will never see it the way I do. I am glad for whoever posted that said their husband understands some of what I have said. My parents will be WONDERFUL grandparents, her parents---not so much so this has created even more stress (but we knew some of this when we got married and decided to live near my parents instead of hers, but that's a differerent story.)
Nonetheless, this thread should be closed and locked because it is going nowhere.
I have, and will never be, disappointed in my daughter, or my wife, ever. My disappoinment lies somewhere beyond to which I ask God to help me understand his plan (even though Sasha doesnt believe in God and IDK about Housewife) and I pray even still that somewhere, there is a boy that will join our family someday.
Natalie Gayle is here (7-6-11) She is amazing, but I wish I could have broken the girl "streak" for our families (last male was born 23 years ago).
