It's a Boy!

We are having a baby boy!

The doc. said that he weighs 15 oz. I've gained 10 lbs! I am 21 weeks prego as of today. He is actually measuring a little bit bigger indicating he is about a week older than they thought... but not enough to move my due date. He is a feisty one! This will be my first and I have been totally shocked at how much movement I have felt already. I began feeling the movements around 17 weeks. Some of the punches or kicks are so strong my husband can already feel them! They saw everything they wanted to see in the ultrasound, so he is looking good and everything has just worked out perfectly so far. Thank the Lord!

We can't wait! We are planning to visit a local fabric shop this weekend and pick out some fabric to cover an old heirloom chair that belonged to my great-grandma that we are planning to use in the nursery. We are going to really get going on the room now.

We have also been thinking of names... but boy names are so hard!

Congrats! My first was a boy (we have one of each now) and he is so much fun! Boys are also great protectors of little sisters, as my husband likes to say...

Dana said...

Congrats on your little son! I have two and when people found out what I was having they always said 1) boys are so much fun and 2) they love their mama! They do!!!

Coupon Mommie said...

I remember when they told me mine was measuring a little big...he only turned out to be 10 1/2 lbs. No matter what size they are every ounce of them is precious.

Good luck with your pregnancy and I hope you enjoy every minute like I did with all three of mine. I wish I were in your shoes again...sniff, sniff...but I have a tubal now.

April & Doug said...

How awesome!! It's very true boys are SO MUCH FUN!! I have two myself - one is 2 and the other is 3 1/2 months. With our first he had a name as soon as we found out he was a boy - with our second one... I was 7 months pregnant before we finally settled on a name! Good luck- enjoy your pregnancy.. you'll miss it when it's gone

Lisa said...

Congratulations! Boys are THE BEST! My husband and I have four sons (21, 19, 17 and 16) and back in 2001 I took in my then 4 year old niece (her mom was killed in a car accident, and her dad [who is my brother] was left a ventilator dependent quadriplegic). Any way - I often say there is a reason the Good Lord didn't give me a daughter of my own - she is a totally different breed than raising boys. Boys do love their mommas, and are far less dramatic. Enjoy every minute - it goes by like a snap of the finger. Blessings to you!

Congratulations!! I have to agree, boy names are so much harder than girls. We had 3 girls and then a boy. We never agreed on a single boys name until we came up with the name for our son. If we had had a boy earlier, we would have been up a creek without a paddle! Congratulations again, and I am so glad everything looks good!

Megan said...

Congrats!! We had a boy first and then a girl. I am so glad my daughter has a big brother to look up to and the PP is right... they sure do love their Mama's!

BusyMom said...

Congratulations! Boys are fun.

If you think it might be in your plans to have more, you might want to keep your nursery a little neutral. We had a boy first and then a girl...it was nice not to have to redo the nursery for the second one.

OMG I just went to the dr. on monday and they told me exactly the same thing you have been told right down to the size!! hopw crazy is that? I am 20 wks also but he is measuring 21 weeks, although not enough to change the due date (March 14, 09). We have our name though. Jackson. and this will be my third boy!!

Congrats

It's funny to hear everyone say how thinking of boy names are so hard. I have two boys and I still haven't run out of names! (We have 2 girls names picked out too but girls names were always much harder for us!) Congrats!! Rest up... boys are always moving! (You're finding that out already :)

Faerie Mom said...

I have 2 boys and they are so much fun and also so different from girls. Enjoy every moment of the pregnancy and sleep all you can! LOL Congratulations! My boys' names are Braeden Orion and Malachai Icarus. If we have another boy we are thinking of Ezra or maybe Ezekial.... who knows! LOL Best of luck with the rest of this pregnancy!

Congrats!! Boys are so much fun!

April said...

congrats to you!

Southerner said...

Congratulations! How exciting for you. You kept us in the dark a long time- I can't believe that you could keep quiet so long. You are such a better secret keeper than I am.

katherine said...

Congratulations! I really wanted a boy for our first and my husband wanted a girl. He got what he wanted and I'm so glad he did! I still hope we have a boy sometime, but girls are wonderful, too.

Ren said...

Congratulations!!

Julie said...

Congratulations! I have 2 boys and 2 girls. I will have to say boys are alot easier than the girls. Boys just seem to be easier going. I did have a hard time with boy names too. It seems like there are more girl names. How exciting to be able to decorate a room. There are so many cute baby things out now! Can't wait to see a picture of it when your done with the room.

Congrats to you! I am happy for you! We have an 11 year old daughter and have longed for a little brother for her for about 10 years....it doesn't seem to be in God's plan for us right now. Enjoy your pregnancy! Keep a journal! And if you want anything on the floor, pick it up now. :)

Lynned said...

Aw! That is wonderful news! How exciting! Little boys are so much fun!

Congratulations!! There is nothing more special than love from a son to his Mama!! Can you tell I have one??

Kelly said...

Boys are so great!! Congrats!! I found the girl's names to be harder! I have had the same boy name for my last two kids and have ended up with girls!

Gaitha said...

The Stemps said...

Congrats to you!! Boys are so great and snuggly! We named our son Parker and we think it's a great name! :)

Congratulations!!! You're going to love having a boy :)

Karen said...

Congrats! Hope the next 20 weeks go well for you!

Gina said...

Congratulations! Boys sure love their mommies!! I just thought my daughter was attached to me! Our son, Grayson, puts her to shame! Hope the last half of your pregnancy goes great and fast!

Michelle M. said...

Congratulations!

I've been following your blog for about a month or so, but I think this is my first comment.

I hope your pregnancy goes smoothly. Enjoy it while you can :)

A Mom with Money Saving Ideas said...

Congratulations on the pregnancy! We have two boys too and its wonderful. Hope the rest of the pregancy goes well and enjoy decorating the nursery!

Anonymous said...

Congrats! We have 5 boys here and they are a ton of fun...they remind me of a barrell full of monkeys! LOL!

Boys names are easy...think of your two favorite Bible guys and put those names together. How about a Thomas Andrew, James Aaron and a Stephen Paul works too!

Sonia said...

Congrats!! Our son is a great Joy!!

Livin Life 13 Weeks At a Time said...

YAY!!! Congrats to you!!!

Congratulations!!

audra said...

Congratulations!! Being a mom to three girls I can't tell you anything about how much fun a little boy is. But I can say that being a mother is a wonderful gift you don't really understand until it happens to you. When I found out I was pregnant with our oldest I was so afraid that I wouldn't know what to do after she was born. Then I saw her and all of that fear vanished. I can honestly say that my girls are the best gifts I have ever received! And once again Congratulations!!!!

What, no coupon/freebie deals today? :)

Congrats on the news. Be sure to save up the ECBs to help with the delivery charges. Perhaps CVS will have a $500/$3000 CRT by then.....

Be sure to check for a Peelie and wait for those RRs.

Donielle @ Raising Peanuts said...

Congratulations!! That's so much fun! My little guy was super feisty in utero too. Still is actually. :-)

*and hey - I've got a week full of baby giveaways going on this week, so you'll have to stop by if you get a chance!

Mindy said...

Congratulations, Denise! We, too, are having a boy due in 2 weeks! We JUST picked a name a few days ago. It does sound like he's measuring big, but he'll probably slow down! Enjoy the next 20 weeks!!! It goes quick!

Leah said...

Congratulations! Boys names are harder because they keep getting used for girls. We have two boys ten years apart, Christian and Ivan, and I LOVE BOYS! Remember, two syllable names don't have to be shortened. We (and his friends) don't shorten "Christian". If you want a bible name, remember to look at bible names in different languages ... like "Ivan" (grin).
One last preachy advice, remember to get plenty of good fat if you can, your baby's brain is made of fat!
God bless your little guy and you!
Leah

starbrite1 said...

Congratulations Denise! My first was a boy and they are great! Don't listen to any negative boy stories, as you can see by these posts, boys are not hard to raise! I just also want to say a BIG "THANKS!" for making this blog, esp. when you have your hands so full. It has been a real blessing to me and my family.

Congratulations1 Blessings on your bundle of joy!

Polly said...

Congratulations!! My two oldest are boys and they are loads of fun!

Leah W said...

congrats-that is VERY exciting!

Crista said...

Congrats!

Kate said...

With our first, we just named him after his dad. By our third child, we were at the hospital looking through a baby names book! Good thing she was a girl, or she still might not have a name!

Andrea @ Mommy Snacks said...

I have 3 boys and God does know what he's doing when he chooses the gender for our kidlets. I am totally a mommy for boys (but, I am trying to convince God that I would be OK as a mom for girls too - He's not biting).

I am praying that you continue with your pregnancy with a healthy baby and all the excitement and enthusiasm this new life is going to bring for you and your hubs. There really is nothing like your first...until your 2nd, or 3rd, or...

And, on cute baby bedding - check out Dwell designs. They are soooo cute and original (and modern/trendy). We have the alphabet design in blue/chocolate for our 18 MO.

I do have a few more cool boy names for you too. Well, my oldest has the coolest boy name in the universe (only one on record) which you can't even find when googling. But, our boys would be far enough apart that I would be OK with there being another :-)

Well, wrote a book (as usual). I'm so happy for you, Denise!!

Jenn said...

Congrats! Boys are so fun, I have three! Good luck on the name!

Maria said...

Congratulations!! A child is god's greatest gift. You will wonder what you did before he was born. Your life will change forever and it will be the best thing ever.

Carey said...

Congratulations! That's wonderful! I agree... boy names are hard. I was thankful that I had a girl because we had about 4 girl's names that we liked to choose from, but we hadn't agreed on a single boy's name! Good luck!

Sarah1978 said...

How wonderful! Congrats!! :) Babies are such a blessing.

kathy said...

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you. I enjoy reading your blog.

Rita T. said...

Congratulations. As a mother of 4 boys I can truly tell you that you'll never be bored!

Natalie said...

Congrats! He's gonna love his momma!!! :)

~ Junkyard Jennifer said...

How exciting to know! I didn't know for our first. Tried to for our second (cord was in the way both times!) and found out for our third. I definitely loved knowing, and if we're ever blessed with another baby, I will definitely find out again. Congratulations!

~ Jennifer

Chris in TN said...

Congratulations again to you and your husband. I remember crying when I saw the first image (ultrasound) of our only son. I'll never forget it. Cherish every moment because they grow up so fast.

Sarah G said...

CONGRATS!!!!! :)

Tain said...

Congrats to you! I'm 24 weeks along with our second boy and we don't have a name picked out either. We also have two girls, and while I will DEFINITELY say my son was easier, the girls are twins and I always attributed it to that! From reading these comments, I guess boys are just easier by nature. Good to know :-) Good luck, rest, stay healthy and keep us posted about the name!

Sila Lumenn said...

Congratulations! How exciting. We should know the sex of my niece's baby in the next couple weeks, too. I figured if I ever had a boy, his name would be Spencer. No particular reason, I just love that name. :-)

Bay said...

Congratulations! It's so great when you know for sure and can plan! Have fun :)

Clippergirl56 said...

Congratulations!! You are going to have a great time preparing for this little boy. Have fun.

Cindy said...

Congrats!

gbmom2407 said...

It is even harder to name a child (especially a boy) when you are a teacher. Certain names bring a vision of a naughty child.
Our three boys have unique names. (not strange). I will email you them since I do not "publicise them".
Congrats!

Jennifer said...

Awww! Congrats! That is such exciting news. I remember how excited I was when I was pregnant with my first.

Anonymous said...

Congratulations!! Boys are so easy!!! I have 2, Jonathan is 21 and Spencer is 18, and they do love mom. Both are away at school now and I so miss them so. Spencer is a great name , not too many people use it. There are Jonathans everywhere. Jonathan's best friend is named Jonathan, so we have to call them by last names. That is something to think about with "trendy" names.

Congratulations on the baby news!

LeAnna said...

Congratulations! It must be a year for the boys, I'm due with one in January, and have two friends who are due (Nov/March) with boys. This is my first, and it is indeed so fun.

Melissa in TN said...

Congrats on your son! I'm 24 weeks pregnant with a boy, too. Best wishes to your family and I hope you find the perfect name :).

What wonderful news!

Our first was a boy and our second a girl. And they make Sooooooo much cuter boy clothes now than when I was growing up. We too struggled a bit coming up with a boy name. Why is it girl names are so plentiful? But my son is still very much Momma's boy. So loving and sensitive. It's my GIRL!!! who is fearless,climbing and diving off things and giving me heart attacks!

Anonymous said...

Congrats!! I have 2 boys named Jacob Thomas and Brandon Lee.

Pam said...

Hooray! I have three wonderful boys (and a 6 month old girl). You'll have a blast! Don't you just love feeling them kick? That's my favorite part. Even when you feel gross at least there's the kicking.

Marianne Thomas said...

Congrats, sweetie! Am so happy that all is well with you and the wee boy.

Stay healthy and get whatever rest you can now (plus go to the movies, out to eat, all that fun stuff!).

Keeping you guys in my prayers.

Musing Truth said...

What great news - we have 3 boys and a girl - and I love my girl to pieces, but I just LOVE having boys!!! My only advice on picking a name is pick a name that will never get old - one that you dont mind saying a gazillion times a day!! I still love our names and they fit our boys perfectly!

Tiffany said...

Boys Rock!! :)Congrats!

Susan said...

Congratulations!!! many blessings to you and your husband!

ct said...

Congrats to you on your baby boy! I've always been partial to Owen.

I can't wait to hear more about your progression! Yea for babies!

Jami said...

Congrats! Boys are so much fun. Mine is 9 now, and it makes me sad how fast the time flies.

jennifer said...

Congratulations!! I have 2 boys and, I'm telling you, there's nothing like it! They are so much fun. With my first one, they told me he was going to be "huge" and was only 8 lbs. 12 oz. They aren't always right on! :) I send you bunches of prayers and best wishes! Thanks for all you do for us moms!!
