And, we are having a....

For as long as I can remember I always wanted boys.  I mean I wanted a brood of little wild tikes! When I met Kev my desire to have little boys grew even more! I would be doing the world an injustice if I didn't try to populate this world with little Kevins!

So, when Kev and I decided to start trying to have kids we did our research on how to make ourselves some little boys!  After much reading we had ourselves a little boy making party and two short weeks later the stick showed two blue lines!

I was 11 weeks on Mother's day and Kev surprised me with a Gender prediction test he picked up at Walgreen's.  We performed the science experiment in my parent's bathroom in bend.  Before we checked the results we both reminded each other that "this was only for fun" and then we saw the prediction
The old wives tale goes; a fetal heart beat below 140bpm is a boy anything above 140bpmis a girl.
At 16 weeks we heard the little heart beat and our OB said "do you hear the heart? It is beating at 130bpm."  But what I heard was, "Congratulations, it is a boy!"

Yup, we were then convinced.  We were having a boy.  In the following weeks we had a very muscular nursery picked out, a list of very boyish names and refereed to our sweet babe as "he, him, our boy."

It felt like an eternity before 19 weeks rolled around when our first ultra sound was scheduled! We were dying to see our little guy!  We arrived at the doctor's office all jazzed and excited (I was still giddy as all get out despite my little bladder accident on the way to the hospital....I may or may not be sharing that story!!)  I laid down and the tech showed us the little human growing in my body!  We counted all 10 fingers and all 10 toes!  Looked at a perfectly formed nose, heart and brain!  

He was beautiful and then we heard the tech say, "and congratulations you are having a little....girl!"

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts."
Isaiah 55:8-9
