My EDD is July 16 (although my other babies all came late, so I'm expecting to go more toward the end of July). I am planning to have this baby at the same freestanding birth center in Oregon where I've had my others.
I'm not sure about finding out the gender. I'll probably do what I did for my other babies, which is to only have an ultrasound if there's a really good reason for it. With my first, I had no complications, so we discovered his gender at birth. With my second, I had bleeding at 34 weeks due to a low-lying placenta (it "moved" out of the way in time for me to birth naturally). I had a couple of ultrasounds to figure out what was going on, so we found out her gender at that point. And with my third, I didn't find out her gender until I was over 41 weeks pregnant, and my midwife wanted to make sure the baby was still doing okay. So we found out her gender just a few days before her birth at 42+0. I'll probably be Team Green for this baby, but if I have to have an ultrasound anyway for some reason, then I'll find out the gender at that point.
Happily married for 11 years. 9 year old son, 7 year old daughter, 5 year old daughter, and baby daughter.
