It's a BOY!
The Lord has blessed us with another boy.
If you were to ask me, I would say I would like to have another girl but I told myself it isn't want I want... it is whatever God wants. The Lord saw fit to give us another boy. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited to have another boy. The reason I wanted another girl is because I grew up without any sisters, you know? I wanted to do a lot of girly things. I am very thankful the Lord gave me Joanna! Just so you know, I've learned that it is not always what I want or hoped for... it's whatever He sees fit for my family. The fun side of having boys, I like to think of them as being my body guards when they get older. Something like that, crazy I know. I know they'll be daddy's helper in many areas: mowing, driving, all that manly things us women don't do. Heh. See? It's fun to think that way! You know, Peter is already active... I can only imagine when he and his little brother get older. I just might stay fit for life having active boys! ;)
Please pray for me and the baby.
As I went in for my 17 week ultrasound today, the doctor said my baby boy's heart had a calcium spot and showed a slightly larger than normal ventricle or ventricles in the baby's brain. To know 100% for sure if there's something wrong or not, I am recommended to see a specialist. I am really scared. The doctor also said it may resolve on its own and that it is probably nothing, or it could be a symptom of a chromosomal defect. I know I will love him no matter but I'm still scared and full of emotions. I just want my baby to be healthy.
Experiences, stories and definitely prayers appreciated.
