I keep feeling its a boy, Jo. I don't know why, but that just keeps coming back to me. It's why I didn't post right away when you started this thread. I wanted to give myself some time to think about it and it still keeps coming back to boy.
being pregnant. I loved every aspect of it, even the parts that most women complain about. To me, it was purely miraculous how I was growing this little human inside of me. I knew both times that I was pregnant before any OTC test showed I was and both times the doctor kind of laughed at me when I showed up at his office and told him I was. Kind of like a "yeah, right, this early and you know? Let's run a blood test." Both times they did and both times I was correct.
I was also 100 percent sure of the sex of each of my children, even very early on. Boy first, girl second. I had decided that when I was just a little girl, so it was total coincidence I know, but I didn't even pick out the other gender name at all when I was pregnant and during each pregnancy always called my baby inside by the name I had already chosen. Weird, huh? Boy, I could have been totally thrown for a loop if it hadn't worked out that way!
I was dreaming BIG too! I originally wanted 8 kids and I had 8 names picked out for their birth order. I wearily and somewhat sadly decided to stop at 2 when I had one of each and they were both 10 pounders and had to be delivered by C-section after 30 some hours of labor.
When asked how I was feeling after each one, my only response was, "God, I'd do this again in a heartbeat!"
Boy, boy, cute little boy is what I keep sensing for you. Prove me wrong if you really want that little girl!
