"It's a Boy"*

*Disclaimer: That is just based on a feeling.

I really don't know what we are having, but I was looking in the mirror at my stomach yesterday and I thought, "Hmm, that looks EXACTLY like my last two pregnancies". Low, and straight out, like a basketball. It isn't higher, or rounder. I had a sense of deja vu and thought, "This has to be a boy".  I also have had a highly scientific test performed on my (it involved human hair and a ring) and that also predicted a boy. I do realize that if I wanted to know it would have been very easy at either my 1st or 2nd ultrasound. But I don't, not really. My husband hates to know. He thinks it is the very best surprise and I do agree that my second child really did surprise me.  This time, I come and go about how I feel. Some days I really want to know and be done with it all, other days I know the moment of birth when my husband says: "It's a ***" will be one of those unforgettable moments.  But at this moment, I truly believe it is another boy.

My sister sent me this article today. I started reading it and realized this was everything I had been feeling (well up until the point where she does find out what she is having) but the stares, the questions, the comments, the absolute different behavior of boys. I read it with a smile, thinking, I knew exactly what she was talking about.  I love my boys, I love how much they love their mom, but their constant source of energy tends to leave me drained.  I am working on playtime with boys  - it tends to involve cars, trains, or forts.  That or running - not something I am doing well with right now.  But they are so sweet and they are what I know.

Today at work a friend was telling me all about an incident with his daughter and sand. I added it to my list of pros for having another boy - no serious sand in the diaper issues here. Although we have a new rule: No peeing in our front yard or the neighbors yard. We are working on this.  

I am really okay either way. I will be glad to be done with the question: Are you hoping for a girl?  But I still need a name, boy or girl, we still have no real names.

I LOVE the picture of Micah. So cute. And I agree about hoping for what you are experienced with. But I'm still waiting anxiously for the end of June. :)
