The results are in! Baby #4 is...

My apologies for not coming back and posting right away with the ultrasound results. I wanted to make sure we told family and friends first in person or on the phone before it went up on the web. So when we got to the ultrasound on Friday, I asked the technician to let me know before she went down in that region so I could look away. I wanted it to be a complete surprise for me and I knew I would be able to spot a boy quickly if that's what it was. First she checked the heart beat and we looked at the baby's face. The technician then said she was going to go look at the legs and to look away just in case. So I closed my eyes...

Technician: OK, I know what it is. Are you ready?
Me: Yes
Technician: It's a little boy.

I'm sure I looked something like this. Although my hands went up over my face so there is no way to tell for sure. But yes, I was completely shocked. I had myself convinced that this was going to be a girl. The important thing is that baby boy looks great and is healthy. But knowing that this is our last child and I will not have a girl makes it a little hard. I'll be honest, I cried. A lot. As it sinks in a little more, I'm getting better.

So that's the deal. I will have 4 crazy boys running around the house. Say a prayer for me. :)


  1. I'm so happy to the the baby is healthy - that is the most important thing. But, I don't blame you for being a tad disappointed. I know I would have had the same result in your position. You will have your hands full, that's for sure! Congratulations again on a healthy baby boy in your belly!

  2. Congrats on boy #4!! But remember, it's not over until the cute newborn cries (to paraphrase an old saying ;-) - so you might still have to shop for pink!! So happy for you!

  3. Congrats again on yet another sweet blessing to your fam. Even if it is another booger-picking, bug seeking monster boy.

    Come enter our blogging team's mega giveaway...I'm giving away a pair of my "Ankle Biters" lounge pants for boys. (No stinky girls are allowed to wear them.)

  4. Ah hunny, Im sorry that you are not having a girl. I cried when I found out my 2nd was not a girl, though what you are going through must be harder. Just think in time you will hopefully have 4 beautiful and kind daughter in laws that someone else had to raise.

    Lots of hugs!

    I am happy to hear your baby boy is healthy! Any names being thrown around yet?

  5. How wonderful that your son is healthy and growing well.

    I do understand your disappointment, as I felt that when I found out ours was a boy. I cried too, but of course I got over it quick, and now I just can't imagine what life would be like without my little boy.

    I still have hope that one day, we'll have a girl, but honestly, a healthy baby is the best thing.

  6. Cry it out, it's okay. Gender disappointment is normal and don't let anyone tell you different.

    But on the bright side, you'll have plenty of clothes to pass down. Congrats on another healthy little man!

  7. I'm sorry you were disappointed and that's understandable. I just love your attitude though focusing on the most important thing that he is healthy.
