Wow!!! You ladies are simply the best!!!
LOL Doe, I chuckled with that last line!
I guess I'll love it, even if it is a boy, LOL
Just kidding! I KNOW I'll love him!!!
It's the second ultrasound. After the first one DS said it was a boy. I assumed the tech told them it was a boy. After posting here I did a little research and learned it was too early to tell. DS later said that the tech never said it, but FDIL "believes" it's a boy. At this stage you should be able to tell, although I know nothing is 100%.
Hi Diazdebbie!!! I have heard of stories like that. One time a couple were told they were having a little boy but it was really a little girl. I think they said the tech thought the umbilical cord was a penis. Anyhoo, I was wondering how long ago this happened with your niece? When I had my sonogram many years ago they gave me a picture of some black and white fuzz, that looked a little like a ink blotch, and if you squinted one eye and concentrated really hard you could see a baby! Now a days these things come in 3D and look like an actual picture! No doubts that's a baby in there! A coworker email a sonogram of his soon to be born daughter, and she was just laying there, legs crossed, little hands by the side of her head, looking bored! These things are amazing now!
Shorewill---OMG, I spit on my computer with that one!!!
You gave me an excellent idea...ASK TO SEE THE PICTURE!!!
Firelight- I wouldn't put nothing past them. As far as DS having the ride of his life...Well...he gave us a ride, maybe it's his turn, lol!!!
And yes, oh yes...as much as I would love and adore a grandson, the thought of a little girl just tugs at my heart. I had three sons, my sister had a son, our family is full of males. The experience of a little girl does fill my heart with delight!
Thanks Nana! I'm gonna lean on the positive side 95%, LOL. I want to believe that it would be just too mean and selfish for anyone to do that. But knowing FDIL and DS as I do I will keep the 5% cushion of preparedness just in case!
Hi Jill, Yes they have both been spiteful toward me. I think I fault DS more than FDIL. I sometimes wonder if FDIL would have had our troubles if it weren't for DS tainting her with his lies in the first place. Every bad thing she ever heard about me she heard from him. She had already formed an opinion of me before she ever got a chance to know me. First impressions are hard to break and it was DS who gave her her first impression of me. And yes, I believe that he would go along with it. He went along with her telling me about the first baby and that they weren't going to have it. There's no doubt that I was told because they wanted to inflict some pain on me.
Jill, you are so right about it being horrible about having to watch what you say or ask. It's like walking on eggshells. It's stressful to always try to balance the universe so as not to upset the peace. It's just not suppose to be that way.
Thanks Pooh. I knew that I could come here and express my crazy thoughts because you all would understand. Someone else may have thought I had issues!
Of course it doesn't really matter if it's a boy or girl...I just want healthy!!! You hit it on the head. I do have fear. I fear that they are still willing to hurt me. But as you said....I won't let it rule me. I'll just be very, very cautious!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
