We are finding out August 17th..... by then I will be 19w, 4d. I could have scheduled anywhere from 18 weeks on, but I chose the 19 week appt for more accuracy, and because 3 days after the appointment, we are going home to see our family. I talk to my family everyday, and am scared I will spill the beans, if we have to wait too long!!!!!!!!! I did after all drive 6 hours in the middle of the night to tell my family we were pregnant! We are also planning to ask the u/s tech to not let us "see" but rather write it down, and put it in an envelope. Then DH and I will go out for a nice lunch, or do something nice like maybe go down to the oceanfront, and let him read me what it says! Its kind of unfair because the day I found out I was preggers was in the ER after staying there ALLLL night long..... from 8pm-10am. The doc came in about 6am, and said "we have interesting news"....... that was after I had a negative HPT the morning we went to the hospital with FMU, and when they took my urine that night at 11pm, that apparently had enough HCG in it to detect? HHHMMMMM.......... so when the doc came in he told me, "well, you have a ruptured cyst, and you're pregnant...... DH was sleeping in the car!!! So I called him in, but was very dissapointed that I had a negative test that morning cause it was our anniversary, and I had the perfect way to tell him, that allllllll went down the drain!!!!!!!!
So, we have to make this nice!!!!!! DH had to leave this morning for 2-weeks with work, so by the time he gets back, we will only have a week and half before our appointment....... hoping it goes fast!!!!!!! And we're pretty positive, at least I am from day 1, that we're having a boy!!!!!! My sister is on her 2nd pregnancy in two years, her babies will wind up being less than a year apart, and both are boys..... so everyone keeps telling us its a girl, but we think different!!!!!
Oh, and a friend last night who said she would put money on the "fact" that we're having a girl, was 2 seconds from putting a 4-d u/s on her credit card yesterday being that I hit 16 weeks. Ha..... ummmm, no........ but we are finding out about 19 1/2 weeks, and that will be August 17th...... so 24 days, and counting!!!!!!!!!! Hmmmm, that was a long post!
Any creative ideas on how to tell family being there is so much debate???
