Julia, there is no indication I am having twins, LTB just mentioned it cause I said I was having more symptoms sooner than with my others. Twins don't even run in my family so I am not counting on it but it would be kind of neat :) Ruffles I don't think I had a great sway either and my MIL said she had a dream the baby was a boy (thanks MIL). I am betting it will probably be a boy and will be pleasantly surprised if its a girl. We tried right? If its a boy its meant to be and I will keep telling myself that as I am crying through my last 5 months :)
What's wrong with our MILs??? I liked mine a lot, but then I started noticing that she seemed to be acting (literally) nice. She's sort of nice and then on a regular basis mean. I really don't know what to think of her! The good thing about her is she's not interfering with our life, which I would not tolerate, ut this way at least I don't have to fight it.
I thought about that gender wish a lot and here's my conclusion (in case anybody is interested ): we want a girl, but you know when sometimes you want something that is maybe not even good for you and you just don't know yet? You're trying and trying so hard to get that and when you get it you notice that it's not good for you or when you don't get it you notice maybe even a years later that you were LUCKY that your wish did NOT come true because then this or that would have or not happened. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say here, when I read it again I'm not sure it's understandable!!! Sometimes it just seems better to put our fate in God's hands and he will pick what's best for us, because he knows everything that we might not know YET!!!! Later when we get to that point we'll agree with HIM! One of my best friends was telling me that several times and I did notice many, many times it was right for me - to just let go and try not to control everything!
