    Default funny how some things change your train of thought...

    So we have 3 little girls 6, 4, and 20months. I am 19wks preg with my 4th.. naturally we were so hoping that we were having a boy this time as i really would like to experience what it would like to have a son, and we are farming so hubby is pretty keen for a son too.
    My brother (also farming) has a daughter and until august this year had a son, but devastatingly their little boy passed away in his sleep at the age of 1year and 2 weeks, SIDS. My sister is having a daughter in april and i am due in may. i had so pesperately been wanting to give my parents and family a grandson/nephew again. I was certain i was having a boy (probably talked myself into it), but on xmas day my brother and his wife announced they are expecting and shock to us all they are due on exactly the same day we are......
    We had scans this week and found out we are expecting our 4th little GIRL.... I was so sure i wanted a boy until my brother announced his news, and now i am so happy to be having a girl and praying like mad they have a little boy.. Im sure over the years i will wonder about having a son. but i will be SO happy having my healthy girls and holding them tight at night.
