I was just coming to post that I have this gut feeling that this baby is a boy and the fact that the heartbeat (this past visit the h/b was in the 140s or 150s--I forget) and cravings (savory instead of sweet, even though I remember craving savory with Baby Girl sometimes, too) all suggest it just make me even more sure.
And then I was going back through old blog posts and found this. Same doctor appointment around 16 weeks, same lower heartbeat, just like last time. I suppose it is possible this could be a girl. Only time will tell--just over 2 weeks until we find out (hopefully)!
I think I mentioned before that I wasn't enjoying the thought of having a boy. Heck, saying I wasn't enjoying the thought is a gross understatement--I was scared and pissed and anxious about the idea of having a boy. But I've actually started calling this baby a "he" and it really is growing on me. Will I be sad not to use Baby Girl's clothes again? Of course. But whatever God's plan is for this child, it will join our family and it will be what is meant to be and I will embrace it. I think I've convinced myself enough that it's a boy that I won't even cry if the doctor tells us it's a boy. I even have moments where I *want* it to be a boy so The Hubby and his family will be extra happy.
But now it's just a waiting game. We shall see!
