I’m not sure we’ve even made it official to the blogosphere—but we are on track for our third little D-W due May 27th. In this day and age you can take a drug store gender test as early as 6 weeks. We waited until the 11 week mark because it is supposedly around 80% accurate after 10 weeks.

As you can imagine from the series of events, my tube tying desires have grown stronger and stronger. What started as a ONLY if its a girl has flipped to no matter what I can NOT survive this again. Still not sure about that, but I’ve got this peace about all boys. Beyond that my peace stretched from thoughts of comfort from boy confidence to a fear of life with a little girl as ornery and sassy as I was.
