  • I figured it would be easier to get through labor without knowing if it was a boy or girl. It just made the time of delivery that much more special to us. There are such few surprises in life and I am glad that I did have 3 of them.

  • I knew the first one would be a suprise, just because i wanted to keep it that way, but the second one i would like to know so i can be prepared for it this time :D

  • I never found out offically but, both times I was pregnant I had a dream and was right both times!!! My mother thought I went off the deep end both times but I was right. The first time I told her it was a girl and I showed her all these baby things--all pink--- and she sat me down and said--you are going to be so sad it if is a boy, I said oh no mom its a girl and told her the name, she thought I was nuts.
    Second time---opposite all blue stuff, got rid of all pink stuff, boy name---I went in for the ultrasound and the tech wrote it on a paper and in a sealed envelope fo her---- I didn't look because I already knew from the dream..
