Boy or Girl???

by | Jun 22, 2009 | Pregnancy | 19 comments

At just 14 weeks gestation, the beginning of the second trimester, it is still “too early to tell.”

My guess is that our little one is a girl. I have thought so from the very beginning, despite the fact that the rest of my family thinks otherwise. Although I have been nauseous, the nauseousness has not been nearly as bad as it was when I was pregnant with our boys — requiring multiple visits to the hospital. On the other hand, I AM tired, emotional, and breaking out (ugh!) — all symptoms I had during my pregnancies with our two girls.

The ultrasound tech I had this morning was inclined to agree with me! From what I saw, I am thinking my instincts are right, but we will find out “for sure” at my 20 week ultrasound in August.

Boy or girl, I am just so very happy and thankful that everything is going so well this time. Thank you all for your continued prayers!

    I am so happy for you, Jessica! Continued prayers for your little one.

    I think it is a girl too. Rose told me she can always tell and in a few weeks she will give her judgment. She is usually right… hmmm…

    And baby is praying!!! How sweet!

    That is funny Amy! I keep thinking of this one as my "little Christmas Rose" and I just can't picture the baby being a boy! 😉

    Oh Jessica…I'm so happy for you and thanks for sharing the ultrasound pictures of you precious new baby!

  5. Emily

    Oh so exciting!!! I like the name Noelle for a Christmas name. We thought we were having a girl, and God had other plans!! Can't wait to see more U/S pictures in August!!

  6. Therese

    I think it is a girl too. If it is, you will have had your children in the same order as my husband and I.

  7. Kathryn

    So sweet, I can't wait to see if you are right and it is a girl! I only had one girl (8boys) but her pregnancy was so different I suspected she was a girl right from the beginning!

  8. Jamie Jo

    Do you find out Jessica?

    I thought all my girls were boys until it was confirmed they were girls!!

    I have no "mother's intuition"!

    Beautiful picture of your beautiful baby praying!!!

    So exciting!

  9. Jamie Jo

    Oops, I went back and read, yes you will find out at 20 weeks…I got ahead of myself!!!

  10. Regina

    aww, the brady bunch!

  11. Mimi

    Oh (s)he's beautiful! Girl sounds right to me too!

  12. regan

    praying for you jessica, that all will be well. i never cared either way, boy or girl, just a healthy baby in the end!

  13. Angela

    Great news Jessica! Continuing to pray for you all!

  14. Shelly

    I'm with Jamie…. not an ounce of mother's intuition here either. I was always wrong from the get-go. The last few times I never even put out a 'guess'.

    I love the Precious Feet of the sweet baby! What a great shot of her feet. They look so cute in all those hand-me-down boots-n-shoes! 🙂

  15. Mary S.

    You know, a "Christmas Rose" would take care of St. Therese too, Jessica! 😉

  16. Margaret

    YAY. So excited for you!

  17. Cindy S.

    Congratulations! will keep praying for you. Please pray for me… still haven't been able to conceive a 2nd.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
