Now I have to admit, I was deeply hoping for at least one girl. I have a 7-yr-old son already and I love him dearly, but there's something to be said about having a little girl. I had little dreams about braiding her hair, dressing her in pretty little clothes, painting her fingernails, and playing My Little Ponies with her. But alas, I have the Goodman curse! (My grandmother Goodman, my Grammy who is the twin, also had 4 boys, one of which is my dad) :)
First we looked at Baby A and he was in a great position to tell and the tech immediately yelled, "That's a penis! Its a boy!" Now Baby A is my singleton which means the other two, being identical, will be the same sex. I had hoped that it would be a boy and 2 girls so I was pretty happy to hear that A was a boy. When she went searching for B and C they were facing each other, making it very difficult to tell. While searching though, we got a FANTASTIC shot of Baby B's hand! (check out the Ultrasound Photos page to see it!) We were running low on time and didn't think we were going to know B and C when B decided to roll over. And Rhonda the tech freezes it and yells excitedly, "Another penis!! B and C are boys too!"
My husband was over the moon! He had the biggest grin on his face as he looked at that screen. I, on the other hand, burst into tears! I wasn't sad per se, but I AM pregnant and full of horomones and the slight disappointment that I wouldn't be getting my little girl just hit me wrong and next thing you know, I'm bawling my eyes out. The news was just overwhelming! Matt was slightly oblivious to my tears at first, but when he turned and noticed them I felt just awful. He was SO excited and he looks at me and says, "I'm sorry!" LOL It was quite humorous looking back on it. He even went out that night and bought me a beautiful lavender plant I'd been wanting with a little balloon in it that said, "I'm sorry" I just had to shake my head and laugh.
Having a day to come to grips with it, I'm pretty excited now. I've been thinking about all the positives of having all boys and there are lots! They can share clothes and toys and rooms. Sure it will be quite rowdy, but boys sure do love their mamas! :) And now that I know they are boys, I feel even more attached to them. I know it will be here before I know it, but I can't wait to meet them!
