I cannot Believe I'm about to say this I can finally reveal baby Duke No3 is a BOY!
I think I'm still in shock... I never thought I'd be a mum to a baby boy and here I am feeling my son's kicks and wriggles. Poppy from the get go was adamant it was a baby Brother...no seriously she would get really annoyed if we said it might be a sister. Her reply was always "I already have a Baby Phoebe, I need a baby brother called Wosy (Rosie)". Honeslty, every day she would talk to bump and say "baby brother said he loves me ".
To be honest, I also had a very strong gut feeling from the start. I've never been sick during my pregnancies but the nausea was terrible this time round, the extreme tiredness, the shape of my bump was different, my skin broke out in acne at week 6 and cleared up by week 13, I still get the odd spot here and there but nothing like it was during the first trimester. We also tested the old wife's tale of the ring theory it went back and forth every time, for the girls it went in a circle. My midwife also said with that the heart beat sounds like a boy... oh and the cravings; bread, meat (mainly chicken), rice, potatoes, etc... I had completely gone off all fruit and veg, sweets/chocolate and tea. In fact i've still not touched a cup of tea! but luckily baby boy likes some fruit, veg and chocolate now.
As a family we are extremely excited for this next chapter, its completely new to us this time as I'm so used to having girls! Poppy is so excited to pick outfits for her Brother and Michael and I can finally buy cute baby boy clothes, picking a Name is going to be super hard as we had already picked out baby girl names. I hope you stick around for the Journey
