    Leaning toward yes. It's fun to start imagining a son or daughter.

    Leaning toward no. You don't get that many chances for such a big surprise!

Our scan is tomorrow smile.gif

 

It's been booked for ages, so it was starting to feel like it would never get here.

 

I have a pretty strong feeling it's a girl this time, but we'll see what the tech says tomorrow (assuming the baby will cooperate!)

YAY!!!!!!

It's a boy! About the only thing this baby seemed cooperative about showing off was his penis.

 

So far my accuracy for guessing friend's baby genders?: 100%

Guessing my own babies genders?: 0%

 

Haha oh well.

Yay!
I have a 2007 babe and I'm glad as a single mom to have them so far apart. My son is so excited. If I had continuos support I would prefer them closer. But it was seeming like time was slipping away before I got pregnant again. Like now son and sibling will be at least 3 years apart now 4,5 and 5.5 sold.

That seems pretty accurate for most guys I know...

Congrats Miss Ess on your boy joy.gif

My photos are in the ultrasound thread for anyone who is interested smile.gif

My DD will be 3.5 years old when the babies arrive and especially now that we are having twins I am very happy with the spacing. I think they will still be close enough in age to play together a good bit, but far enough apart that DD is decently independent. My Mom had me and my siblings all about 1.5 years apart, she said it was rough until we were all out of being babies, but then it was great because we all played together. I had originally thought I wanted closer spacing before I had DD, but after her I wanted to space at least 3 years.

We originally wanted only 1-1.5 years apart with our children. It might have worked, had I not had two m/c's when DD was 10 and 11 mos old. As it turns out, this is the first time since that I've gotten pregnant and I'm soo glad that it turned out this way! DD is still nursing (nearly every day, sometimes a couple times a day) and I'm glad that she's had this time with me all to herself. She is also very excited about a baby and often talks to my belly and gives it kisses. It is very sweet heartbeat.gif She is looking forward to helping me in labor and being there when baby is born and I have no doubt that she'll be a very good helper once baby is born. She is already good at getting her own breakfast and starting the TV so I can get some extra sleep in whistling.gif Self-sufficiency will be such a blessing in those delirious, newly postpartum days!

I agree, DD is very self sufficient as well and even though we dont have cable tv she keeps herself entertained all day. She also still sleeps 12 hrs a night, so we always sleep in... Now for the bad news :P I had one long contraction yesterday (hubby is deployed, so I was alone) and DD immediately was full of energy and wouldn't stop talking. When I was in labor, the room needed to be dead quiet so I could relax and sleep, so DD's constant moving and talking actually made the contraction much worse. I know lots of women who say how great it is to have their children present, but after my experience yesterday, I can honestly say, having DD there during labor would not work in my favor, in terms of pain management. After the contraction I took it as a sign that I shouldn't put myself in a situation where I'll have to focus on DD and birthing this baby. With that said, I'm glad I learned this before, rather than in May.

Well we found out today we are having a GIRL!!! We are over the moon excited. We thought it was another boy for sure!
And the tech told us he wouldn't tell us if he wasn't certain, so he said he was 95% sure it was a girl! I could see the 3 lines myself too, I just knew. It was an awesome ultrasound!!

We are having a girl! We have a name picked out(surprisingly easy to agree on!) just trying to wait patiently for this baby girls arrival!

post #155 of 158

I had my ultrasound today, too. I was sooo fun! I did find out the gender, however my husband and I keep it a secret until birth. We like to torture everybody like that. winky.gif BUT, I was just too excited NOT to post about it! LOL!!

 

And now to pick out a name.....

Had our ultrasound last Thursday and we're joining team boy!  We had both wanted a girl so we had a bit of gender disappointment to deal with but I think we've pretty much gotten over it.  I loved all the frilly little clothes but then we realized what a PITA those must be to wash and I realized that the girl half of pottery barn kids is a bit nauseating to me so yay for boys!  I also get to get out of giving the kid "the talk" and, as I have a rather dysfunctional relationship with my own mother I realized this is probably better for everyone since there won't be as many destructive patterns to repeat.  We even settled on a name although we're still working on a middle name.

 

I was terrified of my mother's reaction since she really wanted a girl.  She doesn't get to see my niece because of her crazymaking and I'm sure she won't get to see much of her grandson either (although she's been on her best behavior lately since my brother cut her out of his life but I know that won't last long) eventually.  She actually handled it well at least when I was on the phone with her.  She may be seething internally but is at least keeping that from me.  She'll crack eventually.  If not about the gender about something.  Then I can be done with her for good.  So looking forward to that.

 

Everything looked healthy and normal.  I found out I have an anterior placenta so he'll annoy me less with kicks (I just primarily feel them on the edges) and he has mama's long legs.

Soooooooooooo....

 

I wanted a surprise, DH wanted to find out but was willing to try to wait.  We had our anatomy scan on Monday (DH insisted, I was willing to skip it but I'm very relieved to know all is well with babe) and DH and I both TOTALLY SAW.  We didn't say anything or look at one another, so throughout the rest of the scan I kind of forgot about it, but then once we got in the car and had the paper the tech had written the gender on... I asked DH if he'd seen (I noticed his face when I saw and I knew it had registered something) and he said yes but didn't want to be the first to say.  We debated on our car ride back to work but then after 30 min caved and looked at the paper.  It's definitely what we saw - a boy.  DS is thrilled, he knew all along it was a boy, ha!  So much for our surprise.
