It's not official but...

Looks like I might be outnumbered in our house!  The little nugget didn't want to cooperate so it was not easy for the Dr. to see but Dr. S thinks we are having another sweet little boy (I hope he's sweet).  Sawyer is going to have a life long buddy.  A lot people (including Dr. S) have been asking me if I am disappointed that I am not getting my girl and I have to remind them that I have my girl, she's just waiting for me in Heaven.  Plus, I have 3 years to talk Skeet into having number 4.  I am not holding my breath but I am scared that after this new one gets a little older I'll be wishing we could have just one more.  So I asked Skeet to not do anything permanent and he agreed if I would go on the pill.  I hate birth control but I had to say yes.  He refuses to have kids after he's 40 though so I only have 3 years!! 
I am still not convinced 100% that this little nugget is a boy though, we have another ultrasound scheduled for the end of April so I won't make any plans until it is confirmed. 
Now for the best news...  I begged Dr. S to take a measurement of the baby's leg bone.  It is measuring a week ahead!!  That is wonderful news for me because Avery's legs measured weeks behind.  The relief I felt when I saw that measurement... well it's indescribable!  I finally feel like I can be happy and excited about having another baby.  The fear of getting attached and then getting bad news again was just too much for me before but now that I know things look okay so far, I feel a huge weight has been lifted.  I am ready to clean out the extra bedroom and start pulling stuff out of storage but I am going to hold off because it's still pretty early and that would leave me nothing to do when nesting hits!! 
So for now, little boy... I'll let you all know if it changes!

Congratulations! I am so happy for you! I know you're still pretty early, but my midwife once told me that when the baby doesn't want to cooperate with you and is hiding the money shot, it's usually a girl... who knows! I just KNEW that Reese was a BOY when we couldn't get a clear shot until I went to see Dr. S and he told me she was a girl! hehe Either way, I'm excited that you guys are able to experience another little one coming here!

Congratulations! I'm so excited for you guys. Hopefully you get another girl, but it's always a blessing no matter what the gender. :) Can't wait to find out for sure!
