Well the results are in and this sway resulted in beautiful boy #3 for me!! In the begining of my pregnancy I was SO sure this was my little girl but after my 13 week ultrasound have been preparing for boy after seeing a very boyish nub.
I actually surprised myself, I thought I would be completley devasted if I didn't hear "girl" and to be completley honest, I definetely was in the begining. But I'm a little shocked how quickly I've come to terms with another son. While I am sad that I will never get to experience raising a daugher I trust that this is what is meant to be...I'm a mummy to boys, now and always!! And you know what...I'm actually "ok" with that!
