It's a BOY!
Surprise US (been very sick /hospital). DH and the little boys (6&4yrs) were with me. So great to see the little critter moving around! The tech said "When was your due date?" I said Valentine's Day. He said "Uummmm. do you want to know the gender?" WE all were like YES! Considering I thought that I was only 14+ weeks -definitely NOT expecting a gender confirmation. He said "It is definitely a boy and you are due the first of February!"
This is baby number 4. I have bragged on various threads that I "knew" that I was carrying a girl & had this strong intuitiveness.. Cripes! I have a PINK dresser filled with a baby girl layette! In a manner of minutes it's all changed -a boy! I love life. It's been like Christmas morning!
I am so completely happy and joyful! I wish I could hug everyone who is reading this!
We found out this fabulous news completely unexpectedly! If you schedule an US around 18/20 weeks, the option of finding out the gender is a given. Like, this thread's question "when do you expect to find out?" The best bit was; we were NOT expecting this at 14,(oh! Sorry) I mean 16 weeks! See,My due date changed too! Yeah, OK.. due dates change often in the progress (process?) of pregnancy. That is common. It really should be your due '2 weeks'!
Baby boy in the bump is healthy and perfect. DH got choked up! said "he's beautiful -he has your mouth!" I was still in shock and could not speak! (remember pink dresser) But, really? Sweetheart, my mouth? His little bones are just starting to calcify. the soft tissue shadows are ambiguous at best! Penis of course is accurately detailed!
I truly hope you all have an experience as wonderful as we did. Every story has a joy component. Thanks you for letting me share ours!
