Exactly what I was thinking. My baby is 4! I don't care, we support ourselves and will have as many as we decide is right. I am thinking 3 or 4. Depending on how everything goes with this baby.

I wanted 4, Scot wanted 1 or 2. So I'll only get my third if this baby is a girl. But I have a strong sense that it's a boy. So very likely to be the last :/
but never know! And even if it's a boy, maybe husband will change his mind and want another in the future!

We used to want 5. But now that seems like a lot. We are both very tall and have very tall children. I can't imagine filling every seat of the durango with very tall people!
If this is a girl, I can't see myself potentially having 4 girls if the one after this is another girl. So if I wind up with 3 girls, then I think that's it for us. If it's a boy, depending on how it goes, we might have another. I would be ok with girl girl boy boy or girl girl boy girl. But we shall have to wait and see!

Oh yeah there's plenty of time for those decisions to be made later! I can't wait to find out genders!!!

Literally everyone that has seen the ultrasound has said boy. Not one single person this pregnancy has told me they thought it was a girl. I just want to know who is in there!

I had boy dreams about this baby too. I hate wondering! With the girls I never dreamed about the gender. I really dislike surprises when I know they are coming! After I know the gender and who is in there, I think I will be able to patiently wait until birth. Lol

Thanks! I don't know much about skull theory, I can't really find any hard info about it. But if you look at the girls their heads look kinda like a circle. This one the forehead is flatter and the bottom of the head is bigger/has a little dip down. Idk. Wishful thinking maybe.

Yeah I see what you mean. I read something about the shape of the head being an indicator but I'll need to refresh my memory!

Aww, that's a great shot of baby, Jessica! I love the side-by-side with the sisters as well. SO cute!

We got some interesting news today... Apparently the building we live in is NOT owned by hubby's boss' father like we were told. It is included with the business, meaning the bank owns it and is likely going to turn off power and water on the 1st. So, we have about 2 1/2 weeks to get out of here.

It's looking like Idaho is our best option right now. Russ's job would be in Sun Valley, which is a resort town in the middle of nowhere. We couldn't afford to live there at first (plus it's almost 2 hours to the nearest hospital- yikes!), but we found a 4 bedroom house we can afford in a city much closer to civilization. It's 30 minutes to Twin Falls which has hospitals, Costco, Target, etc. The town we'd be living in is tiny, but has a family medical center including obstetrics, so that makes me feel better.

It's less than 2 hours from my family in Boise and still close enough to Washington that we can drive if needed to visit the grandparents. Right now, it's kind of our only option. Part of me is excited- mostly going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bed, 3 bath HOUSE, but I'm having a really hard time thinking about leaving the Northwest. It was beautiful and sunny today and all the fields were full of while snow geese. I started crying when I realized we wouldn't get another summer here.

I always imagined all of the things we would enjoy here as a family, so adjusting that dream for a place I've never been is stressful. I worry about being in a new city, not knowing anyone, and being at home all day alone. I know it will feel like home eventually, I just wish we weren't being pushed so fast into such a big change.

Part of me is hoping something local pops up and saves the day in the next couple of weeks, but it's looking more likely that we'll be saying goodbye, at least for a few years. Here's to new adventures, right?

Wow becca! That is so crazy! On the bright side, you aren't huge yet, so that should make moving easier. That's gotta be stressful, but kinda exciting!

Well you can always move back in the future if a job opens up for him again there. And if your parents love there, visit a lot!
I would move anywhere for a 4 bedroom house! Ours is too tiny for 4 so I'm hoping and praying for a way to get out of here. I live in a town where I know no one and am home all day with my daughter alone. It gets repetitive and lonely going without adult conversation but it's just a small portion of life I've got to deal with. If you live in a nice town (I don't) maybe you'll have some awesome neighbors! It may not be too hard to make friends.
New adventures mean anything can happen!
I totally wish for my own!

And yeah Jessica, I read up on the skull theory and according to that you're having a boy. Mines head looks roundish but big so idk. Could go either way for me.

Yeah, the house is the biggest draw. I was just hoping to move somewhere that had a "real" room for the baby. Right now we have an extra bedroom but it's only about 8x10 feet, and serving as our office and storage space, so we'd have some serious rearranging if we wanted to make a nursery out of it. The thought of having a separate room for baby, an office, AND a guest room is mind boggling to me! Add to that 3 bathrooms and it's more than I thought we'd be looking at at this point.

It's still not a done deal- hubby is still negotiating details, but it looks like it would be a good move for us. I'm just counting my lucky stars that this is happening now, not during the first or third trimester!
