Pink or Blue? Drum roll Please!

So for those of you who haven't heard. I'm sure there isn't many of you left. 
On Monday I had the scary task of leaving my boys and flying to Brisbane to have a scary ultrasound to further confirm the presence of downs or rule it out. Thankfully the sonographer could see I was a bit of a nervous wreck and didn't muck around, every time she typed something she told me what it was and what that meant, and what part of the body she was looking for. All looked as it should be, the soft markers for downs that were there at 13 weeks were gone and all other issues that could have been there weren't. Everything looks as perfect as can be. Seriously is there anything better to hear?

 So after what felt like an age she asked the big question 'do you want to know the sex?' Hell yes I wanted to know...

I have to admit I breathed a sigh of relief when she told me. I didn't think I really had a preference this time but I was so pleased when she said it was another boy. A healthy boy at that, who is a little chunky but nothing to worry about, that's nothing unusual in our family.
So by the end of January 2012 I will be the mumma to four boys. I am seriously excited about that, strangely enough. 
I know my house will never be magazine pretty, and I know for at least the next 20 years I wont drive a normal car, and I will at one point have four smelly teenage boys with hormones raging. But I think our boys are seriously lucky they will have three ready made playmates that will be with them for life. 


  1. and what 4 lucky boys they are to have you love!!
    Congratulations on your testosterone filled house. If you ever want extra estrogen, come visit!

  2. I couldn't be happier for you, I was so hoping you would have the matching set there. Used to be my dream to have four boys until I realised it needed someone very special to pull it off with flair and have always thought that you and the M-man where those very special people....Helen, I am already desperately trying to arrange a marriage with Stanton clan but you have 3 girls, so you know just saying

  3. So so so glad that you have been given the all clear! Your four boys are going to have a great life with you as a mum xx

  4. A son! Hooray! Congratulations! Must be such a relief to have that all clear.

  5. OMG. HOW DID I MISS THIS!!!! I've been slack. I know. But I am soooooo excited. Looks like your destined to be a Mum to Boys. ;)
