It’s A Girl…

As you can tell from the title, we are expecting a baby!

Number 7.  Yes, you read that right seven.  I am due on December 3, 2012.

I have been wanting to blog about it since I found out in March, but I was too scared.  I am 44 and know that there can be a lot of complications and up to a 50% miscarriage rate after you turn 40.

Anyway, I made it through the first 12 weeks with no problems whatsoever!  Then I had a slight problem for a couple of weeks.  It has resolved itself (thank God!) and we found out last week that our new addition is a girl.

If you don’t know by reading my blog, I have 5 boys and 1 girl (plus this new addition).  My boys are  16, 14, 13, 10, and 7.  My girl is 5.  Before my daughter was born, I didn’t think that we could have a girl.  Apparently I was wrong.

We were shocked to be expecting another baby when our youngest is 5.  Of course we got rid of all of our baby stuff when my youngest was 3.

It will be fun to get some new (pink) stuff!

Here she is:

I am labeling the top picture number 1.  It is a picture of her foot.

Picture number 2 is her profile.

Picture number 3 has the “girl” parts.  We just had to believe the ultrasound tech because we can’t tell at all.

We are thankful for a healthy baby.  My children are really interested in this baby and the pregnancy.  They are always touching my belly and talking to her.  Cute!

My daughter was so excited that it was a girl when I called to tell them that she wanted the new baby to be born on that day because she couldn’t wait to meet her!

There is nothing like a new baby!
