Boy or Girl?

Gender reveal party for our family

Gender reveal party for our family

Finding out the gender of the baby is one of the most fun things during pregnancy, at least in our family. We found out really early on this time, at 14 weeks, which is amazing. It’s so incredible that at such  young age, the tiny baby is already so beautifully and wonderfully formed. Sergi and I wanted to know just as soon as the ultrasound could show something, so we were really excited when we found out. We both had a feeling, parent’s intuition, maybe? that it was a certain gender, and we were right!

We had a very simple get together to share the news with some of my siblings and their spouses later that week. We set up a space with both a boy and girl outfit and everyone had a turn getting their photo taken holding up either a boy or girl outfit, depending on who they thought the baby would be. Then Sergi and I had our turn last and held up the appropriate outfit, and a sign with our baby’s name. Here’s a short video for you to enjoy:).

I can’t believe that I’m already halfway through the pregnancy. We are so thankful that the baby is growing perfectly and are really excited to meet our new family member!

    Hi Olga and Sergi! I just discovered your blog (from Natasha’s kitchen site) and I’m so touched by your story. Have no words. Wish you all the best in the world, but the most important thing is the health. How old, how correct.
    I think not all the readers would know that Nathaniel in Hebrew means “Given by God” or “God gave”. It’s the God’s present for all your love and hope and good deeds. God bless you and he baby.

    Hello Olga. Today is Feb 26th and you have not post anything since Feb 20th. I really hope everything is ok with you and your baby. I sit here and pray for you and your baby. I do not know your email to email you. But may be you will see this comment, i was not sure where to comment. May God bless you and your delivery. I can’t say anything that could help more than Gods help and His mercy on us and your family. May God be with you all that time.
    With Love and Prayer, Natasha
