And the Baby's Gender is...

...a Boy!

Before the ultrasound:

#3: It's a boy, mom. I know it.
#2: No, it's a girl!
me: Well, it doesn't matter what it's going to be, because if it's a girl, we'll love her so much! And if it's a boy, we'll love him so much, right?
#3: Yeah, but it's a boy, mom. It's a boy.

After the ultrasound:

#3: Yep! I knew it.
#2: I'm not happy. :(

She's really not!

The ultrasound put me at about one week ahead of my due date, but they probably won't change it. I tend to have bigger babies (my smallest was 8lbs 3 oz, and my biggest was 9 lbs 11oz), so that could just be it. I think my due date will remain the same (August 2nd). The best part? Besides the fact that we found out it was a boy and the ultrasound tech was amazing, fast, and accurate?
He's healthy and strong.

Hooray for babies!

Congratulations! And #2 will get over it. Eventually. Just don't expect her to stop telling you you need to have another baby (and make it a girl this time!) after this one any time soon.

Yea! A boy!
I'll admit, I'm a little jealous. I am eager to find out if I'm having a boy or a girl.

Boys are the best!!!! Of course, I would have said girls are the best if you were having a girl, but seriously? Boys are the best!!!

I'm so happy that all is well and he's healthy!

Congrats! :)

Ann said...

Congratulations! We didn't talk about boy names the other night. You might just have to have a 6th child in order to use your cute girls' name. You need to email me the boy names you're considering!

Tammy said...

Susan M said...

Are you going to name him Susan?

Julie Wolfe said...

Congratulations!!

Desi said...

Yea for babies...congrats...isn't knowing they are healthy and strong so much better than knowing what they are...but that's fun too.

I vote for Susan. You could call him Zan for short. You know, like the Wonder Twins. Although, I always thought it was kinda lame that Zan's power was changing into some form of water. Wonder Twin powers activate! Form of steam!

Cristy said...

CONGRATS!!!!! Boys are great. I hope I get a boy next so Jim won't have a heart attack...

JustRandi said...

Cheryl! Congrats on boy #3! How exciting! I have 14 days until my gender solving ultrasound. Yay! I can't wait! I kinda want a girl because then Katie will have a little friend, but we do want a son at one point or another, so we'll be excited with either. :)
