Gender

So at the risk of sounding like I'm prophesying I am going to come right out and say it: I think I'm having a girl. I am willing to say it finally. Ever since I found out I was pregnant I have thought I am having a girl. But I haven't told anyone. Not even R until today. And now all of you know :) I haven't had any dreams, and I haven't had any impressions. I just think it's a girl. Now the fun begins, because we will see if I'm right. On August 21st I'll have the answer and we'll see just how intuitive I am with my belly.

On the other hand, even though I really do think it's going to be a girl, I want to have a boy. It's not an issue of unhappiness if I don't get what I want, it's just that if I could pick, I would check the boy box. There's no specific reason, even though it was be nice to have more boys in the family on R's side (M is the only male grandchild out of 6, and there's one more on the way beside mine, so if those 2 end up being girls then he'll be seriously surrounded.) Also, we have boy clothes. And a blue room. Plus I already have a boy, so I feel slightly prepared for another. Like I said, we will see...

Can't wait to hear what the verdict is! If end up shopping for new maternity pants, I highly recommend the 'secret fit belly' style at Motherhood!

Thank you for the suggestion and I will be needing to shop, uh, soon!

I LOVE ultrasound day! I think it's even better than the birth, because I don't hurt yet and I am feeling better!! LOVE IT! I look forward to hearing the results!

I am totally ready to be pregnant again, but (maybe you heard) we're doing Ben's last semester in Mexico! Come Jan 09 we'll be headed south-way south-and I'm not interested in being pregnant over the border!

I hope your prediction is true because I have BOXES full of baby girl clothes that I'd be happy to lend out. I can't wait to hear the final word!

Congrats on the pregnancy! I hope you have a boy too. Boys are so fun!
