I am curious to know from you more experienced mamas what sort of clues one gets about gender. In my mom's family, we went more than 30 years between baby boys (1977-2009). So from that I feel girl vibes, but then there's my dad's side, and my husband's genetics, etc. Not that gender selection is genetic anyway.
Also, do all doctors do beta testing and/or 1st trimester ultrasounds? I would really like a confirmation to ease my worries but haven't even been given an appointment at the OB yet.
There's always the old wives tales about predicting gender. For me, so far I'm thinking boy just because this is #4 and my first 3 were girls, with whom I had horrible m/s with lots of puking. This time I just have nausea. *knock on wood* I'm 6 weeks so typically for me the m/s kicks in by now.
I don't think most Dr./midwives do beta testing or 1st trimester ultrasounds. I've never had it done. If you aren't high risk most likely you won't. My midwives clinic doesn't see pregnant women until 10-12 weeks pregnant except for registration with a nurse where they also did a bunch of bloodwork to establish baselines and overall health. I never heard the results but assume it's normal.
