Kim Guiley became pregnant with her second child, and she had a hunch about the baby’s gender. She chose to have a natural birth at home and it was all going pretty smooth. And then, there was this pivotal moment.
The thing was, she and her husband were expecting a girl. They had girls’ names prepared, they had girlie clothes, all that jazz. But the baby was a surprise.
“I just looked between his legs and expected something different. I was in utter shock — I was shocked,” she told Inside Edition. “We had girls’ names; we went round and round about girls’ names.”
You’ve guessed it, it was a boy.
“After a lifetime of dreaming about one of each, but months of feeling so strongly that we were having another girl, this is the moment we discovered Theo’s sex,” she wrote.
She had miscarried a little girl that they already picked the name for: Hazel. Afterwards, they really wanted to keep the gender a surprise.
“But over the course of my pregnancy, I had convinced myself we were having another girl,” Guiley told Daily Mail. “I was overcome with shock and joy, as you can see!”
