It's a What?????????????????

First of all I just have to say that I knew that I was having a boy. Most ladies that I have talked to say that they dream of what sex their baby will be and I have to say that it is true. While I have only had 1 dream about my baby I still believe it was the Lord telling me what it is. Of course Nick will have to tell you that he thought it was a girl. He was going off of old wives tales and other things. Apparently I am not the ordinary pregnant lady.

When Dr. Pegram started the sonogram yesterday I could already tell that it was a boy. Nick still thought it was a girl up till the point the Dr. told us otherwise. The doctor had to check all different kinds of measurements so it took a little while for him to get to what sex it was. Apparently my child likes to show his tooshie and I mean a lot. My Dr. said that he has never seen one that would just shove its tooshie like that at the camera. I told the Dr. he must be just like his Daddy, he likes to show his butt. HEHEHEHE. There is not doubt it is a boy. So I do not think we will be getting any surprises at the birth of my baby.

Although my hubby did confiscate my cell phone,(he actually left it at home!!) he took me out to eat afterwards for a nice supper. So I don't guess it was too bad. :-) We had to go to Wal-Mart for a few items and low and behold Nick's sister and her husband just so happened to be there. Of course we ran in to them and Lacey followed me around saying stuff like,"Just say g or b." or " Pink or blue." Nick did not want to tell anyone until we told his parents. So I told Lacey that all I knew for her to do was to be at her mom's house when we got there. We had to drop some groceries off at our house before we went there. I had time to grab my phone and call my Dad and tell him. He said,"You fooled us all. We thought it was a girl." By then Lacey had made it to her mom's and was there waiting to here the news with her parents. They were all a bit surprised. They all thought it was a girl even though Nick's dad said he thought it was a boy.

We then went to my mother's house where my 2 sisters and 2 nephews were waiting anxiously for us to get there. I took a poll of what they thought it was. Alex said girl. Dakota said boy. NooNoo, Vickie and my mother all said girl. I just looked at Dakota and said,"Looks like your the only one who got it right." He said, "I knew it. I'm not stupid." Alex has been telling me from the beginning that he thought it was a girl and that we should name her Alexandria. I think he wanted it named after him.?.?. Then I just had to start calling and texting everybody I knew and tell them. Needless to say Nick was sick and tired of my cell phone come the end of the day. I told him it was important news. I had to spread it.

I did not get a great shot of him. But the Dr. did print one of his face up close. So I hope you can make it out. You can already tell he has his Daddy's chin. :-)

News Flash...........................

It's A Boy!!

Thankful Thursday

Today, first of all, I just have to say that I am thankful that today is the baby's next photo shoot. We are supposed to find out what the sex of our baby is today. God willing that the baby cooperates!! :-)

Next I just have to praise the Lord for the healing of precious baby Emma who, come to find out, does NOT have cancer and for that we thank you Lord for miracles. What a relief for that family.

I am also thankful that my hubby has decided, just last night, that he would let me tell whoever I wanted as long as he got to tell his parents first. I find that to be absolutely fine with me as long as I get to tell everybody else. :-) For this I am truly thankful!!!!!!!!!!

TO BE CONTINUED.......................................... after the baby's photo shoot!!!!

This Time Tomorrow.......................

This time tomorrow I will be on my way to the doctors appointment. I can not wait if you haven't noticed!! So if you think of it tomorrow say a little prayer for us. Especially for me because I am going to have a hard time keeping a secret. And for those of you who know me, I am not the best at keeping secrets when it comes to my baby. Although I should get kudos for not telling anyone I was pregnant for almost 2 months. That is if you don't count my sister NOONOO. Maybe I should say pray for Nick to let me tell everybody. HEHE!

2 More Days and Counting..................

There are only 2 more days before I go to the doctor to find out the sex of our precious baby!! Yippee!!!!!!!!!! I can not tell you how much I have been looking forward to this day since I found out I was pregnant! The only problem is getting my hubby to let me tell anyone what it is. I am still trying to persuade him that it's just the right thing to do--to TELL. Shout it from the mountain tops! :) I'm not sure I can get out of the doctors office without sending 100 text messages. I presume he will confiscate my phone!! :-) I may have to put up one heck of a fight. So until then........................ unless I remember to blog before Thursday!!!!

Another Prayer Answered By God..........

As many of you know I am pregnant and I am anxiously awaiting the ultrasound next week to see if we are having a girl or a boy! But I have to tell you I got a little scared about being pregnant lately. There is a couple in our church who has a 6 week old precious baby girl named Emma. This past week they found a mass on her leg and took her to the doctor who immediately prepared them for the worst. They used the "c" word. The scariest word in the world!! They thought that this little baby girl had cancer. Now, I know what it is like to have someone tell me that my mom has cancer but I cannot imagine them telling me my precious baby has cancer. You immediately think the worst! Well I have to tell you that I have felt a little guilty lately about my pregnancy as a whole because it has been soooo easy for me. No sickness, no nothing. Easy as pie. Yet there are others who have to go through so much to have a child. My sweet hubby Nick keeps telling me that it is a true blessing that I have had it this easy. Yes......I know that but I can't help feeling a bit guilty. Last Sunday our church prayed as a whole body that this baby be healed and I just have to tell you that I have never in my life felt as though I knew Miss Emma would be healed of this. I have prayed sooooo much for her because I cannot imagine what treatment for someone so little would be like. Tonight during our Dave Ramsey class my mom called to tell me that Miss Emma does not, and I repeat DOES NOT, have cancer. I cannot tell you how I felt when I heard those words. Of course I had to finish class first but on my way home there was a praise fest in my car. GOD IS SOOOOOO GREAT! There is absolutely nothing He cannot do!!!

2 More Weeks and Counting...................

Well.........I only have to wait 2 more weeks before I find out what the sex of our baby is. I just can't wait. I was afraid when I went to the doctor yesterday that he would tell me that I had to wait 4 more weeks to find out. Nick has decided that he does not want to tell anybody what it is and I told him there was no way that I would be able to keep that secret. So I guess we will see who wins that argument. All of my tests that they did, like for downs syndrome and others, came back negative. So that was great news to hear! Plus, I haven't gained but 2 or 3 pounds. Anyways if you don't hear from me for 2 weeks it's probably because I have forgotten to blog because I have lost my brain apparently. I can't seem to find it anywhere! :)
