Not Finding Out.

Just in case you're wondering, we're...

Call us old fashioned but we didn't find out. We love the surprise. We know some people find out and some people don't and it just comes down to what you want to do. We wanted to wait.

The next most common question is if we have a preference one way or the other. We really don't. We're happy with whatever baby we're blessed with. It's much too big of a blessing to be picky, isn't it?

And the shirt? Do you love it or what? It's from Due and Sprout and it's my favorite shirt this summer. Not only because it fits and feels great but also because of all the laughs, smiles and compliments I've gotten. While this usually helps answer at least one of a strangers questions, it's usually followed up with a dozen other questions. And occasionally, I get a blank stare from someone who just doesn't get it. (My favorite, someone who thought the shirt was referring to whether some other body parts had been enhanced. Um yeah. Can't say they have other than what pregnancy will do to you.)

Due and Sprout, is two moms, who decided to create ways of answering some of those common questions before they're even asked. Are you pregnant? When are you due? What are you having? The list goes on. And like I said before, once you've started answering the questions, the opinions and feedback don't stop. Everybody's got an opinion on a pregnant belly and what's inside.

The shirts are popping up everywhere these days from specialty boutiques to celebrity photo shoots. What a neat idea, wouldn't you say?

From today until August 30th, Due and Sprout is offering Simplicity in the Suburbs and friends a 20% discount by entering SITS when placing online orders. So head on over and check it out. Everybody knows somebody expecting that could use a fun tee! (And if you don't, there's always me.)

And now for the obligatory 22 week photo, by popular demand...

So, did you find out? Or will you someday find out?

And what's your guesstimate for baby beep beep?

By the way: Congratulations to comment #8 (Ann-Marie). Your bracelet is on it's way!

Oh yes we did find out. With our first bio baby, I was just too excited to wait. Plus, we had our two adopted children and they would have none of the waiting game. With our next bio baby, I wanted to know so that I could plan. Could I use all the clothes from baby #1 or would I need to buy some pink things. It was all about planning for us. I have enough balls in the air to have them lobbed at me mid-juggle.

Oh, so fun. I wish I needed one of those! If we are blessed with a Baby Beep-Beep (BBB), I think we're going to wait it out to discover whether it's a boy or girl. Gotta have something exciting to get you through all that pushing! ;)

You are too cute! What a great idea for a shirt. I looked on their site; some of those so funny, but true (like the "ask, then touch").

definitely waited...it was good incentive for the last couple of pushes. There are few things left in life that are a surprise...okay, there are a few...baby number 1 was a surprise in the first place!

Cute shirt. We did not find out and I will always remember (and cry) the moment when the doctor said "it's a girl".

You're due for a little girl - 2 of each!

Love the shirt...and the M-t-B wearing it!

No for Anne. Yes for John. But I think you knew that already.

My thought is ~ in the olden days(your mom & my mom's day) the parents didn't find out, all they wanted was a healthy baby. That's part of the fun, not knowing until the "Birth" day of the child.

You go girl' & "You look Marvlous"

I hadn't read your blog in a while. When I saw that shirt I had to laugh - very clever!! A wise decision to wait too - more fun that way!
