We found out today we are having healthy baby girl! I know there are only two options but I was shocked.  My 3 year old DD was so sure and set on it being a boy, she had convinced me too.  And my pregnancies have been different too.  It was crazy though because the tech right away said "well, I see you are having a boy, congrats!" and then 5 minutes later, he said "I am sorry that was the cord! It is definitely a girl".  We are thrilled!

Great news, Oregon!! And how funny about the ultrasound tech, too! "Oops- that was the cord!"

Hi all, had the scan today at 20 weeks 3 days and it's a boy. Actually we knew since week 12 with the genetic test but DH was SO SURE he knew it was a girl that he felt he had to see it with his own eyes on the US today... which he did! Apparently he's pretty big too, 75th percentile and 14 oz. I'm rather petite so hope that doesn't end up translating into a harder birth...

Boy for us!  We're very excited that everything looked okay.  Our daughter took the news much better than expected, too.  :)

Thank you ladies! It is fun knowing this time :)

Hey, finally some more boys. wink1.gif I hope we continue to see healthy babies in the next few weeks, no matter how they are equipped! orngtongue.gif

A week and a half more for me, I can't stand it!

I know...I have 3 weeks till my anatomy scan. that's what I'm nervous about although so far on the scans I've seen their hearts and brains and nobody has said anything about anything looking horribly unusual.

Congrats everyone on your boys/girls! We had our u/s today but are waiting to find out. It was really hard to maintain willpower not to look! I totally understand others' inability to wait. Funny because I'm such a plan-aheader that its weird we are waiting. But I like emotional surprises at the birth! I'm hoping this birth is gentle enough that we can discover it on our own rather than have it shouted to us across the room while he is being resuscitated!

I wouldn't worry about it.  Remember, ultrasounds are routinely 10% off (we got the official report and the measurements all have ranges associated with them).  Our son was 15 ounces at 20 weeks, 4 days (>90th percentile) and I'm not worried at all.  Also, you being petite (within "normal" ranges) doesn't really indicate how much your pelvis will stretch--- I've known 5'1", 95 pounds (when not pregnant) women who had no problems with 9 pound babies and much larger women who had a hard time with 6-7 pound babies.  :)

Thanks, Tiredx2, I definitely needed to hear that! And congrats to everyone for getting this far, boy, girl, or surprise!

We had our scan this morning. It looks like a little boy for us!

Everything looks great and I am measuring exactly to the day. That is great because my DD measured small the whole time and it was always red flagging me. Also, I don't know if it makes a difference this early, but baby is head down. DD stayed breech the whole way last time and I had to have a C-section because of it. I am feeling excited!

So glad everything looked good on the scan, agilesheltie! Head down shouldn't really matter now since they still flip around quite a bit but I was happy my babies were head down at our 18w scan. Yay for measuring on time!

My kiddos always measure about a week ahead at this point - they've been 7lb14oz, 7lb6oz, and 8lb14oz, so nothing huge.  My last birth was rough, but that was more because he was coming so FAST.  Don't wish for a fast birth - somewhere in the 8-10 hour range is about right. ;)

Well, our baking soda test was wrong.  The test said boy, but we are adding to our estrogen ocean.  ROTFLMAO.gif

Pretty sure this will be our last baby, so that makes 6 girls and one boy.

We were hoping for a brother for our little man, but he assures me that the next one will be a boy.

I wonder how he'll take when he realizes that there won't be a next one.  greensad.gif

 

Anyway, I'm seeing ruffles and frills again and getting pretty excited.

My anterior placenta explains why this pregnancy is SO different than all of my others.

But, just last night, I finally started feeling the baby kick from the outside!  yay!!

It's strange to not feel until now, but I'm glad that has started.  There's so much comfort and

reassurance that comes with feeling the baby kick.  

 

Okay, done rambling.  We're having a girl.  :D
