A bump called boy..

Belly (on my way back from bathroom- the only time I am allowed out of bed!)

I can not really believe that we are having a boy, it just seemed so.. well, genetically unlikely!
And I can not really believe that I shared our news with the world. When I found out with Sophie and Grace we only told our close family and kept it a secret from everyone else until the end. I just assumed that we would do the same this time but I guess I was just too excited to keep it a secret.

It's funny because after Grace died I only wanted to have another girl. I thought that if we had a boy I would always think about how there was a 2nd little girl missing from our family, but after it took me so long to fall pregnant I stopped wanting another girl and just wanted another baby.. boy or girl I didn't care anymore.

Then a few months ago I started actually thinking that it would be so nice to have a little boy running around. Of course, we would have both been beside ourselves with happiness no matter what gender this little bub was, but we are really excited to have a little boy. I have to admit that I have already had several online shopping sprees of various blue themed goods.

My mum said she was so glad I was having a boy because now we have one of each we don't have to have any more. I said "No, I think we will still have more" and her reaction was something like "What the hell? Why on earth would you go through this again?!?" ('This' meaning the stitch and bed rest).
I guess because at the end of the day we get the best reward ever.

*Photo of me on my way back from the bathroom (as that is the only time I am allowed out of bed) looking pretty hot in my pyjamas, un-showered with hair that has just turned into a giant knot because I have not washed or even brushed it in over a week. But who cares.. look at that belly!

We have a little boy after losing our little girl. He's such a boy and all sorts of wonderful.

Enjoy the shopping and you and the bump look beautiful. xx

We have just had a little boy after a girl, then a miscarriage (12 weeks, unknown gender :( ). It is the most delightful feeling. I too thought that I probably needed another girl because "what would I do with a boy?" (coming from a family with all girls myself) but I have to admit it is wonderful to get to experience parenting both genders - not that I feel anyone with children of all one gender is missing out by any means - but it's just a different and new type of love and I am loving it :)

Congrats! That is so exciting. We found out with our 2nd, and he was a boy. They are so different to girls... but wonderful. As you say though, any healthy baby is what we all hope for. I hope the best rest isn't driving you up the wall. We look forward to hearing more happy news! Annie x
