today is the big day

Yes, the day is finally here, the day we've been waiting for since I found out that I was pregnant.

I go in for my 20-week ultrasound this morning!

It's funny this time because people think that because we already have 3 girls we definitely don't want another one this time. Is it crazy that I actually DO want another girl? We have clothes out the wah-zoo if we have another girl. The room is decked out in girlie stuff and I know what to do with a girl.

If we have a boy it will be a HUGE deal...you see, I have 5 sisters and everyone has had daughters up until we found out a couple of years ago that my youngest sister was having a boy- the only boy in the whole family.

I am sure we'd figure things out, and Matt would have a little guy to pal around with, play ball with (he does play with the girls, too) and the girls would have a little brother to dress up in all their fancy clothes, ha ha. It could be quite entertaining for sure.

So, you shouldn't be surprised to know that while we are SO excited about today we are also a little apprehensive. You see, this will most likely be our last baby. I've had some pretty bad medical complications with each pregnancy and I don't know that my body could handly another one. This time I have been so horribly sick and I'm still, to this day, throwing up. Yeah, fun. But, everything else has been fine as far as medical stuff goes. We are grateful...we were told about 8 years ago that we wouldn't be able to have any kids and now we are the parents of 3 beautiful girls and have another kiddo on the way.

We are so blessed.

What do YOU think it will be? A boy or a girl?

I'll fill you in on the big news tomorrow.

Maybe there should be a random winner chosen from those who are right?

We'll see....

Oh ow exciting!!! I remember going with mu daughter and son in law for both of their ultrasounds...Our first was a boy and we were over the moon....no boys for 25 years in this family!!! The second sono we were really hoping for a little girl...no one said a thing...but we held out breath and guess what....we got another little boy and he is just beautiful!!!! We are blessed....I think this is the last one for my daughter!!!

I think you are having a BOY....you have to change things up on this last pregnancy!!!! :-)

Wishing you a very Happy Day!!!

I am praying for healthy baby!! But I am hoping for a boy for you. I have one of each. Its really amazing to see the natural difference in boys and girls. I hope for a boy for you because the bond I see in my husband and son is a real blessing!!

I love a giveaway!! :)

I'm going to guess girl, but my boyfriend is the only boy, with three older sisters, so you never know :) Good luck!

I am going to guess BOY! Congrats and good luck.

How exciting!! So long as baby is happy and healthy, either way will be wonderful. I know a lot of people think that father's really want a son, but the thing is between my two (a girl and a boy) my DD is closer to DH and my son is closer to me. Can't wait to hear :)

I can't wait to find out, Becky!!! I have no clue boy or girl wise so just so that I can say I guessed, I flipped a coin and came up with boy. LOL!
