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!

    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!

    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!

    Baby boys are so sweet on their mama’s. I had a little boy in December almost 2 years ago. It was the best Christmas present I could have ever asked for. Congratulations! You have that pregnant glow!

    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:)

    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!
