It's A... {Baby Gender Reveal and Other News}

Drum roll, please.....

Yep, it's a boy!

(Disclaimer: I'm not sure why my children are dressed like that, but let's just go with it, mkay? It was the end of the day)

We've known for a few weeks after the four (well, five) of us went to a local sonogram place with a gift card from my sister-in-law. The owner spent extra time with us because baby would not cooperate. He was laying with his arms behind his head and his feet propped up...very much like his father does.

T and the girls were beyond thrilled, pumping their fists and dancing around (the girls, not T...although I'm sure he wanted to). I'm really excited and a little bit nervous....after seven years of girlie stuff we're venturing into a whole new ball game. I have a younger brother, so I'm not completely flying blind here, but it's still new territory as a mom.

I bought a pair of navy blue baby tennis shoes. I couldn't help myself.

Yesterday's big 20 week ultrasound at the perinatologist was really just a gender "confirmation" for us, since we were pretty certain about our boy. The baby looks healthy, although they want to do another ultrasound in three weeks to look at his heart after hearing about Michaela Byrd being born with a hole in hers (it closed up on its own). 

The visit did have a scary portion, and I'll spare you the gory details, but something about the placenta yadda yadda yadda, there's a very small chance I might end up getting a hysterectomy if it moves over my scar. As I'd very much like to keep my uterus, I'd appreciate your prayers for a healthy pregnancy. I left wishing I knew a bit more about when I'll have the baby. Hoping I can get some more answers today when I see my OBGYN, who I very much prefer. 

Thanks to everyone who said a little prayer for me yesterday...I am so grateful!

  8. Congratulations, and I'm praying for a healthy pregnancy. My best advice (I learned this quickly) is to always keep your little guy covered when changing his diaper -- maybe it's just a guy-thing, but even at a day old, they love to use their extra equipment....lol!

  9. How exciting to be having a boy after two girls! Girl's wrap daddy around their little finger but they always want that boy to "throw the football around with". Congratulations!

  10. Woohoo! Congrats! Little boys are so much fun! (Of course, it's all I know so I am a little biased.) :) Get ready for lots of wild energy and superheroes, cars, trucks, trains, etc. I'm sure he will get lots of love from his two big sisters!

  23. So exciting! We have 2 girls then had our sweet baby boy. It is a whole new world! I was like you what do I do with a boy??? All I had ever known were girly things (I didn't have a brother). But let me just say boys love their mommas...there is something different with him. I love all my babies, but Andrew has stolen my heart!!!!!!! You are so blessed to be a boy momma now too!
