This time around, the hubs and I did extensive reasearch on how to have a girl. Ovulation times,…Continue

I was pregnant for the First time. It was very early in our marriage and we were not quite prepared, yet like any first timer there was a gush of excitement running through me. I wondered whether the baby was a boy or a girl, and dreamed about what my child would look like. We had been to the doctors and knew for certain that we were 6 weeks pregnant.
