Boy, Oh Boy

Instinctively I guess I've known all along. Mothers have a way of sensing these things, as do siblings! From day one, DS has been absolutely insistant that we were having a brother and we found out yesterday that he was right! As badly as I would have loved to hear that baby number 2 was a little girl, my excitement at the thought of DS having a little brother outweighed any disappointment I may have had. I also figure that this is a good excuse to try for just one more little miracle!
As of today I am 22 weeks and feeling better than I have since February. While the summer time heat isn't always agreeing w/ me, it's a good excuse to stay inside and clean my way overdue house! DS has been getting lots of trips to the pool out of the deal so he is a happy camper and DH doesn't mind me once again doing my part of house wife!

I am measuring right at 22 weeks and gaining weight at a steady rate. I was pleased to hear that I have only gained about 2 and half pounds since my last visit... after vacation I was sure that I must have gained at least 10 pounds just that week! My blood pressure has been staying put and after 8 weeks of prescription vitamin D pills, my levels are once again normal.
I look forward to the next half of this pregnancy, enjoying every minute I have left w/ my only child. Now begins the task of sorting through tubs and tubs of baby clothes and making room for Baby Boy #2!

  2. Yay! Congrats! I chose not to find out the sex of our second baby, but our DS KNEW early on he was getting a sister...and he was right! I slept with him the night before my induction and cried that morning as I left him...I knew that would be the last time he'd be an only child!:( He was 4 yrs old and he'd had us all to himself for so long...it turned out great...he's an awesome big brother!

  3. Congrats on the baby boy!

    Just found this blog on SITS and loving it. The hubby and I are starting ttc in August. I was drawn to the blog because we always refer to our future kid as the "baby-sarus".

    Looking forward to more posts!

  4. Congrats!

    I'm so hoping that our second will be a girl so the Babby can have a sister, but with my luck, it'll be a boy. How do I know? I was desperate for a boy the first go around, and now I have a lovely daughter!
