Ultrasound this morning...

and there's no mistaking it -- it's a boy!

We are happy, but we are also like, "oh crap", because our 1st is a girl. We have soooooooooo much girly stuff, and I've saved all of it in the hopes that #2 (our last) would be a girl. While I'm happy to be having a boy, I'm actually kind of sad that we will not get to reuse the girls stuff -- it is adorable, if I do say so myself. Does that make me bad, that I'm feeling a little sad that we can't reuse the dresses rather than just being overjoyed at having a boy this time?

At this point, I'm hoping to find another mama who had a boy first but is having a girl this time who would like to trade some clothing & other girly 'stuff'. Maybe once I get my clothing/stuff situation straightened out, I'll feel more excited about the whole boy thing.

Oh, and the ultrasound tech took a bunch of 4D shots that looked so cute on screen in addition to the 'regular' ones. We were handed a CD at the end of the session and we excitedly came home to relive the pictures....NO 4D. All regular shots, and not great ones either. I was really bummed.

I really am happy, I swear...it just isn't coming out on here I think....

Re: Ultrasound this morning...

Congratulations!! I was the same way for the first few days after we found out our 2nd was a boy. Our 1st is a girl, and I was secretly hoping for another girl to reuse all of the cute things we saved..husband was determined 2nd would be a boy. Day of ultrasound came, ultrasound tech said it's a boy! And I laid there and cried. I really was happy about it, but gosh I know it didn't look like it right then. I think a lot of it was just being unsure about a boy, since we were already used to having a girl. Took me a few days to adjust to thinking of having a boy. Wow as I'm typing that I feel like it sounds horrible Now that he's 7 months old, I wouldn't change it for anything. Our daughter can feel like she's our one and only princess, and he'll be able to enjoy being our only son. Good luck!
