It's a . . .


We are thrilled to announce we found out that we are having a boy in December! Everything looked fantastic during the anatomy scan, and he even opened his mouth up a few times as if to say hello!

We feel immensely grateful for this gift already, and are very thankful that he's healthy!

  23. Congratulations! Your intuitions were right! We find out in 2 weeks from today what we are having and I'm pretty sure it's a girl. My mom swears it's a boy... but I guess we will see! We struggled with getting pregnant, too, and either one will be the greatest blessing. God has truly blessed us!

  58. Congratulations! It's kind of fun that your instincts were right. :) I'm 30 weeks with a boy. I cannot wait to have a little rough & tumble man to explore with. Someone got me this cute wall art for his nursery, and it makes me laugh & look forward to all of the wonders a little boy brings.

  59. Congratulations! Wasn't that ultrasound the best?!? Our doctor's office gave us a "rules" sheet the appointment before the big ultrasound to explain you couldn't have more than two people in there with you, you couldn't switch out people, etc. My husband and I were thinking, what's the big deal... but then we had the appointment (just the two of us) and we got it! TOTALLY AMAZING!

  73. Congrats! So funny how you both had that "feeling". I have my ultrasound appt on 8/5 and I can't wait! Of course I ill be happy either way, but I have been catching myself referring to the baby as "her" or "she" not on purpose it just kinda happens.

    So excited for you both, now you can really start shopping/planning! Woo hoo

    I could tell you were having a boy because you look fantastic.

    I knew you thought you were having a boy when you posted the baby stuff for a boy and a girl and your girls toy was kinda boyish - a sock monkey.

  136. Congratulations! Just found you're blog and what a coincidence... we're having a boy in December, too! Looking forward to following your blog over the next several months. :)

    ReplyDelete
  137. I have two boys... and the journey is amazing. Enjoy pregnancy and all that new mommyhood has to offer. My best note of advise, everyone is going to offer you advise...go with your gut. You will have immediate and strong mommy instincts that kick in and you will be more right than you know for your baby and your situation. Ohhh...and don't get sucked into the huge list of "must have" or "needed" items to be a mom. I ended up with so much stuff I was convinced I needed to be a mom and found that really only about 1/3 of it really made a difference:)

    ReplyDelete
  138. I am thrilled for you - there is nothing better than a mother/son bond. My precious blue bundle arrived 26 years ago (8/13) and he married his high school sweetheart last weekend, let me tell you - - I blinked. Enjoy every second of everything!
