Ok, so everyone has been asking when and if we will find out if we are having a boy or girl. Well, we probably will find out before the baby is born, but we don't know when yet. I'll be 16 weeks along tomorrow and should find out at my next appointment (in a couple of weeks) when the ultrasound will be. Before that happens, though, I wanted to open up the polls, so to say. Just copy and paste the following into your comment, attaching your answers, of course, and I will save them. The closest to accurate on all accounts (but you must be correct on the gender) will get a surprise from me (to be determined so that I can cater to the winner but I do have some ideas). I will also save these all to look back on later. (I still have the napkin with Gabe's predictions. I thought this method might hold up a bit better!)
Oh, and for all those who have also asked if we are hoping for a girl, we both truly would be so happy either way. I think about having a boy, and I get so excited to have another. After all, I am so used to referring to my family as "my boys!" It could be fun, too, especially for Gabe, and we would have them share a room as they get bigger. Plus, most of you know that we are, yet again, trying to buy a house, and the upstairs would make an awesome room for three boys! Besides, we have the boy thing down! -Then I think about a girl, and I picture all the sweet little dresses and other girlie things, and I swoon a bit there too. So Baby, we can't wait to meet you, girl or boy, dresses or pants, dollhouses or pirates! Come on, November!
All right, so here goes. I'll give you a little background info so that it's fair (some of you know and others don't); my due date is November 14. I measured about a week behind that at my first ultrasound. I was induced about a week and a half early with both Thomas and Gabriel. Thomas weighed 5 lb 10 oz and was, if I remember correctly, 17 3/4 inches long. Gabriel weighed 6 lb 7 oz and was, I think, 20 1/2 inches long. ***blushing in embarassment about the fact that I would have to look both lengths up to be 100% certain*** Thomas was born super early in the morning (before 5 AM), and Gabe was born in the afternoon (before 5 PM). Good luck!
Date of Birth:
