I'm hanging out at my husband's office because I don't have enough time to go home before picking up DD at mother's day out, so thought I would update you girls. Although I will say that typing on an iPad is really slowing me down! Lol!
Everything looked good on the ultrasound. Yay for a healthy baby so far! And you won't believe it, but we are having a boy! Team blue is completely dominating this month! I am a little disappointed, because I really thought it would be fun to have two girls, and I really wanted to use the girl's name we had picked out. Of course then I feel horribly guilty for feeling disappointed! But, I am completely confident that God is giving us exactly the child we're supposed to have, and He knows how this is all going to turn out a lot better than I do! I do think it is neat that we will have one of each! Can I just say that I'm sooooo glad my midwife let me schedule my ultrasound a week early so I know the sex of the baby before the big consignment sale this weekend! I definitely have some shopping to do!
I will add an ultrasound pic when I get home- can't do it from here. Moms out there who have boys- I am going to need advice! I don't know what to do with a boy! Lol!
Here's the photo... I only have one scanned. We couldn't really get a good profile or 3D shot because he had his hands up by his face- this was the best one.
Congrats on your baby boy! I agree with PP, boys do love their mommy's! DS is such a mamma's boy!! Boys are also a lot more energetic than girls and get into everything (in my opinion) and when they get older they like to talk about gross things. LOL! They are so much fun though and I couldn't imagine not having a boy!

Congrats on your little boy! After the initial disappointment, are you getting excited?
We have the same thought process about what we wanted the sex of our babies to be. Now that you know and that it is a boy, it gets me thinking that I would be perfectly content having a boy - Thanks for that - selfsih of me I know
Congrats on your baby boy!!! I have to agree with the other mommies of boys, they are super sweet, I love having a boy
And yes, I do believe you still have the only girl Laura so weird how many boys we have!

Congrats! I know you were hoping for a girl, but I promise being a boy mom is SO FUN! Not nearly as much fun shopping to do for them, but you will be his whole world (at least for a little while)!
So excited for you - better stock up on some pee pee tee pees! (this is an actual thing - I promise)
Yay, congrats on joining team blue!!! There are a lot of boys on our board!
Don't worry, boys are sooooo much fun. I was really nervous when I found out we were having a boy because there are only girls in our family. I love my little guy though and I would be thrilled with another one.
