Wonder if there might be another little Ferd on the way?

Ferd
12-11-2007, 12:53 PM
RENDA! How did you guess??????


Yep, baby number 2 is on the way!

It has been a rough couple of weeks. Mrs Ferd had some bad symptoms of complications a couple of weeks ago.

Thus the request for prayer before going to the Dr. Today.

The baby is fine. about 8 weeks along and has a strong heartbeat and size is just where it is supposed to be.

we are excited. Now I have to figure out how to pay for the little critter.

i have been so sick!!!!!! i mean SICK ALL DAY LONG!!!!! i NEVER EVER was sick with Logan...never not one time. this sickness mess is all new to me. it is starting to ease up a bit....at least i am telling myself that! lol

they think we are having a girl. they are going by the heart-rate. not sure how accurate that is.

Ferd
12-11-2007, 03:13 PM
Bump for Ferd.

it would be nice to have a little girl. I think in some ways we both want that. boys are cheeper and not near as much in the maintanence department.

Mrs Ferd has been sick some too. She told me the other day she wanted to upchuck but she told herself that was NOT an option! LOL. she is determined that she will not be sick!

Mrs. LPW
12-11-2007, 03:15 PM
Congrats Ferd and Mrs Ferd! Praying all will go well and baby will arrive safely and on time!

LAGirl... I was sick, all day every day with my first, until month five, when I had one week of no sickness. I thought I was in heaven. Then heartburn struck. It was so bad I had to throw up all day every day to get relief. I drank Maalox all the time. I was sick right up until I had him.

Second one I was sick till month four with all day sickness... and I told my doc there was no way I could look after my toddler and be sick like I was, so he put me on Diclectin. It worked wonders.

The heartbeat for my second was very fast and I had another boy! I'm thinking the heart rate thing is an old wives tale!

Best to you as well.

Mrs. LPW
12-11-2007, 03:17 PM

I think boys are more fun! (course I'm probably only saying that because I didn't get a girl)

Ferd
12-11-2007, 03:21 PM
I think boys are more fun! (course I'm probably only saying that because I didn't get a girl)

at this point it is way early but based on what I know of the way of the world, I think this one is a boy too.

really i am praying for a healthy baby and beyond that all is cool.

if it is a boy, i might be able to convince Mrs Ferd that a third try for a girl is in order! LOL!

You having that special tie with your sisters would give you such a "heads up" in raising a girl. Talk about being a daddy's girl.....oh lordie! She would be blessed.

However, if God has determined it's best Lil Ferd has a brother, you will continue on being a great boy daddy too!!!

Collectively, girls have (statistically significant) higher heart rates than boys, but a high or low heart rate individually cannot determine gender.

My little girl was always around 160 when they checked.

the dr told us any heart-rate over 140 there is an 80% chance it is a girl. ours was 169.

you know it is funny. I know already that if it is a girl, she will have me wrapped around her little finger from moment 1.


Ferd Jr. will do things like stand on the back of the couch and it doesnt really bother me at all. but just thinking of the possiblilty of my little girl (who isnt even here and may not even be a girl) doing that and I go into panic mode!

LOL!
