It's a BOY!!!
So, the big ultrasound was today. The very first thing we saw when she started the ultrasound was the between the leg shot. It was very clear and I called it myself. It's another boy. I've actually known for about 4 weeks. The doctor at that time thought it was a boy, but wasn't 100% about that, so I didn't want to tell anyone. I was still hoping for that girl. So, I've had a few weeks to accept it and be okay. It's still been a little hard. I don't understand why I'm not supposed to have a girl, but I know someday I will. After I found out the first time I still hoped for that girl, but one day I started thinking about the movie "Saturday's Warrior". I kept thinking about the part at the end where the little girl is up in heaven, watching her family, waiting to be born. I started thinking about our little one up there, waiting to come to our home, and if it was a little boy, I didn't want him to think that we didn't want him. I wanted him to know that we will love him and be excited to have him in our home. It was at that time that I accepted the fact that this baby IS a boy. So, today, when it was confirmed, it wasn't a big deal. I already knew. I had already found a name. I had already found the perfect bedding. I'm still sad that I won't have a girl, but I'm happy to be having another little one come to our family. The boys have all been set on this being a "baby sister". I keep asking them what if it was a baby brother and they didn't want to listen. They got to come to the ultrasound today. After it was confirmed, Chaetun accepted it pretty well. Xadun kept insisting that it was a baby sister, but I'm not really sure he even knows what that means. :)

As for the baby, everything looks great. Heart looks good, growth looks good, actually about a week ahead, and no problems that they could see. We got some more pictures, but I'll have to wait until I get to work to scan them.

Some of us like to "specialize" and that's okay! We're happy and excited for you. You have such cute boys.

I love that you are looking at it positively. If there is one thing that I've learned is that some things you just don't understand, but there is always a reason, and it's always for the best. Congrats on your little one!! He will be a blessing!
