...and I'm sick to my stomach. I have been on and off this forum since 2006 when I found out I was having my second boy. Now I'm on #4. This baby was our first surprise, and I can't help but feel like things have been different this time around. My boys always had heart rates in the 130s - 140s; this baby has been consistently in the 170s. I'm also measuring small, and I have always measured 2-5 weeks over with all of my pregnancies. I know none of this means anything, but it's so tempting to hope. Tomorrow I'm 14 weeks, and my ultrasound tech said he can almost always tell the gender that early. I am nervous about a false result, but I truly can't wait any longer. I'm making myself ill.
Well folks, it's baby boy #4 for me. I cried. A lot. But today I'm feeling better. I've chosen a name and my boys are so excited about a new brother. They have actually helped me so much! They can't stop kissing my belly and talking about "their baby". My oldest is 8, and he is one of those truly empathetic, kind souls. He sat on my lap and cried with me after we opened the envelope, kissed my forehead and told me "I'm sorry mama. I know you wanted a little girl like you. But our baby is going to love you just as much as I do." It was such a precious moment. I truly am blessed.
