.. pull up a chair. I want some company!

When is yours? Are you finding out the sex? Are you going out to celebrate?
post #2 of 59
I'll keep you company by living vicariously through the other mamas on here. I'm 17 weeks and not planning any u/s for the rest of the pregnancy. I found out with my other 2, so this is a new experience for me.

Mine is a week from tomorrow - Friday the 16th! Yes, we are finding out the sex (if baby cooperates!) and will be celebrating by going out to lunch afterward and then calling up all the family and friends who are anxiously awaiting the news! I'm so excited to find out!

Mine is on the 13th which is my last pregnancys due date and our 5 year anniversary. We're going to go early in the morning, and then celebrate by going out to lush to get a think pink or a big blue bath bomb for after dinner.. proably stop into the baby boutiques on the way... I think we're going to melting pot if we can possibly afford it (Im still selling stuff!) as we have been doing that for the past several years on our anniversary.

I was so happy to find out that they give you a DVD of the ultrasound and a CD of the pictures so I can upload them for family and friends, I am so excited I can barely contain myself.

For mamas that have done these before... did you do the "juice" thing to keep them active? Did it help?

i can hardly wait for Nov 29 to find out the sex of this little one. I'm also 17.5 weeks pregnant and this will ALSO be my first appointment. Yeah, at 20 weeks. that's the UK for ya! I can't wait to hear the heartbeat or ANYTHING because i just want this to feel real...and i want to know who I am to bond with, a boy or girl...i need this.

Oh, then we are going to go to a really special restaurant and get an overnight babysitter which we've NEVER done before. But DS will be totally cool with it as he knows our friend really well. Anyway, there is no such thing as good steak here...imo, but we found an American restuarant with imported steak and so i'll have that and will be oh so happy! (sorry to any vegans out there...) Then we're going to go to a show (maybe Wicked?) as we've only ever gone to one show since we have DS and its expensive. This will be huge purchases for us as a homemaker/DH student...but it is something to celebrate whatever we're having! (think its a girl...)

Sigh. i can't wait! lets go November, lets go!

Mine is scheduled for Monday the 19th. I will be 18 weeks 2 days. After a lot of going back and forth about finding out the gender we decided to keep it a surprise. Looking foward to seeing the little one bouncing around on the u/s.

Our 5 yr anniversary is the 13th too. I thought I was the only person to get married on a Wednesday! My first ultrasound is on the 20th. I'll be 19 weeks. We won't be finding out the gender. The surprise is too much fun. My husband will be working, so maybe I'll celebrate by taking my 2yr-old out for lunch.

Nov 29th is when I'll be having an u/s. I think I'm going to be going the "write it down and read it later route" We'll see.

I'm also 17 weeks right now.

the 13th at 3 pm here, i am dying to make sure the baby is ok. I am sure they are fine, but i do worry especially with the 7 1/2 weeks of spotting that I went thru :

We will both be there as will our 3 1/2 yr old dd. We do plan on finding out the sex if possible. If it's a boy, my dh and my dd are going to freak out on me pretty good, so I am hoping it's a girl

LOL! Well, we got married on the 13th of... something : last year. I can't ever remember the date, we only went to the JOP so we could save $$ on car insurance because in our eyes, we had been married so much longer than that... the paper from the state was just that.. a paper. So I count our original anniversary as the one and only. :

My ultrasound is Monday November 12th. I'm so excited to see the little parasite!! We aren't planning on finding out the gender - we have said all along we won't but yesterday dh said he wonders if maybe he wants to know. I think in the end we won't find out though. No going out to celebrate. He'll probably go straight to work afterward.

My next appointment is November 20th, but they didn't schedule me for my anatomy scan yet, which seemed kinda strange (I'll be aaaalmost 20 weeks by then; I guess they wait for the first appt after you hit 20w). We're not finding out the gender, though, and we already had one ultrasound, so I'm not so much on pins and needles about it (though I'm looking forward to having a "clean bill of health" and all that).

Mine is next Monday, the 12th. I'll be 18w4d or 18w2d according to my dr.

No idea if the IP's want to find out gender. If they seem against finding out, then I probably won't. If they seem okay with my finding out but they don't (or will), then I will.

The u/s is at 8am. We have to be there at 7:45am. If you knew how late my kids and I sleep in each day, you'd understand why waking this early is scaring me. I'm setting THREE alarms to make sure I wake up. And I'm going to bed three hours earlier the night before (thankfully DH can stay up and tend to the kids).

I'm anxious and I don't know why. No celebrating. Once it's done, back to the hotel and then the airport my IP's go and I'm going home to NAP!

We had one at 16 weeks (about 3 weeks ago now) to determine placenta placement - requested by midwife.

We weren't planning any so I doubt we'll have another unless a serious complication arises.

We didn't find out the gender.

DECEMBER 4th or BUST!

Okay, our appointment is for December 4th and YES we are finding out. I am OCD to the extreme! I'll be 22 weeks by then!
Will we celerbrate? I don't know. I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to break the news to my parents if it is a boy. They want a grand daughter so bad. It's cute.

Mine is Wednesday Dec 5th at 10am. We didn't want to find out the sex but I'm leaning more and more towards maybe finding out, I just can't imagine not being able to buy the bunch of things I need without knowing. We'll see!

Haha. This reminds me of my Mom and MIL. The first pg, they wanted us to have a girl so bad. DH joked early on that it'd be twin boys.

It was twin boys.

My U/S is on Nov 27. We'll be finding out the gender (as long as babe lets us). I don't think we'll necessarily celebrate...maybe just go to lunch?

Although, now that I think about it, if it's a boy DP may plan a party
