When I shared this tutorial for a gathered car seat canopy recently, I mentioned that both my sisters are pregnant and I was hoping that at least one would be having a girl. That was true. The part that I left out is that there’s more than two sisters in my family pregnant, there’s three! I’ve been secretly hoping that the canopy will be used by me and not by one of my sisters.

I’m due in April, a month after my sisters are both due, and am so excited (and just as nervous to have a third child)! I’ve kept it quiet around this blog to hopefully not prolong the entire pregnancy, and give me less opportunities to complain, which has been good for me :).

My doctor did a quick ultrasound at my appointment this week after having a concern (everything is fine), and has a guess as to whether my boys will be getting another brother or a sister, but I’ll have my official ultrasound on Monday and will hopefully know for sure.

I’m crossing my fingers for an explosion of pink projects at Sew Much Ado, but will of course be just as thrilled with another boy. So there you have it. It feels good to let you all know, and I’ll be sure to fill you in after Monday!

  3. Much congratulations! I’m due in April too (the very beginning) and we found out a few weeks ago that it will be a boy – a nice complement to the girl we already have. I hear you about the pregnancy complaints too. I’ve been struggling with not complaining 24/7!

  14. How fun #3. Wishing a little pink your way. I’m having #3 in March but we’re staying with the blue.

  15. Congrats!!! I just had three boys and just had my forth baby in October. Ultrasound told us baby 4 was a girl, the big day came and he is not even close to being a girl! It was one of the best surprises I have ever gotten. What mattered was that he was healthy and just perfect!

    That being said, I sure hope you get that little girl:)
