We're having a.....!

BOY!

We did genetic testing two weeks ago and got the results yesterday.  We wanted to wait until after our procedure to find out the gender, so we had the doctor write it on a card and as soon as we got in the car, we read that we're having a boy!

I have always wanted a girl.  But I felt that the singleton was a boy and I've really been hoping that it was.  One, for my husband.  He's ecstatic that it's a boy and is already planning out when he can teach him to golf.  Two, my sister and our good friends have just had boys.  I am so excited that our little boy will have a cousin BFF who is only 7 months older than him.  It'll be perfect.

As long as I can still have him play soccer, I'm in! : )

On our two hour ride home from the doctor we discussed names and nursery ideas and really got excited about this pregnancy for the first time.  It feels real and normal now.  I wouldn't wish the last two years, especially the last two months, on anyone, but I feel like we might be finally putting them behind us.

Thanks again to everyone for your continued support.  It's been really hard, but we're doing really well.

We're going to wait another week to make it Facebook official - we are not out of the risk zone yet, but we're so close!

  7. Awe. Congratulations! You're right, it will be great to have a cousin of the same gender around the same age. My brother and (male) cousin are 7 months apart and they played on the same soccer teams from third grade on :) (They also skied on the same team, and lived together for a few years during middle/high school.)

  8. Oh how sweet! Congrats! Isn't it amazing to feel that it's a boy or girl and then just have it confirmed? Our instincts definitely prepare us for what we are given. I'm so happy thingsare looking up and your feeling excited about all there is to come. I was the same way after i found out gender. We were able to start planning so much more. Sooo exciting!! Congrats!!!

  10. I always love hearing that the first one is going to be a boy; it always reminds me of my first born...the thirteen year old boy sleeping right now upstairs. ;-) Boys are so much fun!

  12. Glad your instincts were right! I know these weeks have been incredibly stressful, and I'm glad that you can finally settle into a place where you can enjoy this pregnancy, and the son that you will (hopefully!!!) enjoy in 6 months or so. Lots of love and strength, I wish this road could have been easier for you.
