BOY, was I wrong!

IT"S A BOY!!! I was convinced that it was a girl and I was right with my other three, but I was way off on this one! We are excited and thrilled to have another little boy, just a little surprised. Grace has taken it all really well, I was actually expecting some tears, but there weren't any. She said that she was just a little sad.
Here's a shot of Thatcher 4. He was very active during the ultrasound and gave the Dr and the sonographer a bit of a hard time checking all of his vital organs and such, but in the end, everything was where it was supposed to be and he looks good so far. He did have the same cysts on his brain as did Dylan, which is a "soft marker" for Trisomy 18, and he had a little fluid around his kidneys, which is a "soft marker" for Down Syndrome, but my blood tests were negative for both which puts us at a 1/5000 chance that there is anything wrong. Just a moment of concern, but it all looks to be A-Okay.
It's getting more real now that I have a gender and can feel him moving around. I am excited to meet this little guy and I'm excited that Dyl will have a little buddy to pal around with. How much fun!

boys RULE in the easy department! LUCKY!!!! Wow, is Grace going to be an only girl?? She'll get over it~! She will most definitely be such a great help to you...what a difference it will make with #4 having big kid helpers!

Hooray!!! I had a hunch that Grace just might be the only girl. Any names that you had in mind? We are so excited for you.

Congratulations! Boys really are fun and at least you already have a girl so it should be lots of fun times with another little guy around!

Jessica said...

congratulations! i kind of am hoping for a boy next time around myself. my girls are just a tad too dramatic for me these days! do you have a name picked out? i remember your girl name you liked, but i can't remember the boy name.

isn't it great to be half-way done?

Mandy said...

Congrats! I would have had all boys if I could choose now. Girls are such drama. I am glad he is healthy. DO you have any names?

Congratulations on boy #3! I am sure that part of the reason you were wrong was because you wanted a sister for Grace. How exciting to have a new little man on the way! Can't wait to hear what you will name him!

Congratulations! Whens the due date? Did you find out early what you were having?
From the past I'm sure you're excited its a boy :)

Emily and Kyle said...

I was wrong too. I didn't think about it when you told me, but wow, now Grace really will be able to reign the Thatcher household...you will have to fight for that position. I'm sure this little guy will be a cutie just like the other Thatcher boys. I've already started to look at boy clothes for you.
