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!
