Sorry… I’ve been out of town for a few days. My father-in-law is VERY sick and in serious need of prayers. Please pray for him!
The results are in and — no surprise here — I’m carrying a boy. How did I know? Very simple… with girls, I throw up many, many times a day; with boys, I don’t. And with this pregnancy, other than a twinge or two of nausea, I’ve felt nothing. I haven’t been affected by smells… … [Read more…]
