It's a boy! I was so sure we were having a girl. My main reason for thinking that was that the sperm were sitting around for 4 days before ovulation happened. So I had us all thinking it was a girl. We went for the ultrasound yesterday and I asked the tech to write down the sex for us on a paper--we wanted to make it a little more special. So we went to a cafe and DD (7) opened the envelope to read it to us. She just stared at the paper, and didn't say anything! Rich and I could see through it and my jaw just dropped. I was so excited though, I couoldn't eat. DD is a little disappointed but fine. DS is happy--there are so many girls in the family, although he gets along great with them.
I was kind of unsure about finding out, but now I'm very glad we did, especially for DD's sake. I was totally ready to start knitting girly things!
