I had my U/S this morning. All looks well so far - everything was where it should be. And we found out we are having another boy! So that is number three for us. I'm struggling with a little disappointment. I wanted this to be my last pregnancy, but I am mourning the idea of never having a daughter. I love my boys, and will obviously love this one, but I'm still struggling a little.

Sorry for the struggle. It's totally OK to feel a little disappointed. Hopefully knowing a head of time will give you time to mourn for what you had hoped to be so you can fully embrace you new little guy.

I've come to the realization that I'm really, really hoping for another girl. I tell people that I only hope it's a girl so she can use hand-me-down clothing from DD but, when I'm really being honest with myself, my heart is really hoping for a girl for far beyond logistical reasons. If I have a boy, I know I will love him just as much as I love DD and he will be the perfect addition to our family but I'll still stuggle a little too. Just wanted you to know that you're not alone.

I had my unofficial 20 week u/s today. Unofficial bc I just changed providers and today, at my first appt, they wanted to do "just a quick check" since my records hadn't been transferred over yet. It turned into a fairly thorough u/s and they took measurements and pics of everything-arms, legs, head, torso, cord, cerebellum, nuchal fold, etc. Everything looked totally normal but they still want me to go back in a few weeks for an official level II and fetal echo at the specialist's office. And they want to change my EDD--not sure how I feel abt that. It is true that I thought I was further along when I went into to my 1st appt at my old provider's office, so, maybe? And evidently every measurement was off by the same amount so they all matched and measured 20 weeks not 18w4d.

But anyway, according to the tech, we're having a boy. I'm excited and yet not at the same time--this is likely our last pregnancy and I did really want a girl but another boy would be so much fun too. It's like I'm excited we're having a boy but sad at the same time.

Just got back from my ultrasound - everything looks great, and most exciting my sch is shrinking!!!! So it could disappear yet, and I could have the normal, full term, pregnancy I have been hoping for!!!

:

DH, DD and I were hoping for a girl (and I have been convinced enough to call her a she and start calling her by name for a while....) and DS wanted a boy. We got our girl, and DS actually cried during the ultrasound, poor guy!

We had ours this afternoon. When we first went in there we told the tech we didn't want to know what we were having and the first thing it picked up was a view of between the wide open legs, and he kept it there for a while lol. So we're now pretty sure it's a girl, since I'm pretty sure we would have seen a penis if it was there, but there was nothing there. But everything looked great, and it added a few days to my due date so I can see that as being a good thing if I go "over". And we got a picture of the foot and it's adorable! I'm still on a baby high! :

Had our scan this morning.. I thought from the beginning - girl, but my husband had me convinced over the past couple of weeks that it was a boy (wishful thinking on his part). So I was surprised when they said girl this morning! Had a great technician, met with the doctor right there and so far everything looks great!

Mine was on the 21st. Most boring u/s I ever had (and I've only had 3--one for my ds, two for this baby). The u/s dr's voice was a dry droning noise: "I see the arteries...and there's the lung..." Bleh! We didn't find out the gender. We did, however, discover that I have an extra placental lobe and that my placenta is growing right over my scar, so you can imagine :

Had my u/s yesterday at 20/5. Everything appeared great, and he was moving around lots. I have a great printout of 3 profile shots. He has a lovely round head!

Had my US today and we found out we are having another little boy! I was pretty sure it was a girl, so I was a bit surprised. It's sinking in now, and I'm getting really excited about another boy and DS getting to have a brother. Everything looked great, baby is healthy and measuring a little bigger than my dates say but I don't really think that means a whole lot at this point. Now I need to start knitting and sewing in earnest for this little guy!

I had my level 2 the other day. It went really well I had my favorite tech who is also turned into a fast friend of mine from when I was in the hospital for 4 weeks while preggo with ds.
We are having a boy and he is such a wiggly little thing just like ds was and to my surprise this baby is measuring 1 wk ahead of my edd which is awesome because my cerclage comes out in the end of December and I want this baby to be as big as I can get him knowing he will be born early. His name is Simon Joseph and his scan results where perfect now fingers crossed this cerclage holds and he will be a to term little peanut.

I am so happy to be a mother of two boys. I think I am highly qualified to be in a house full of men I grew up with 3 brothers and no sisters so I would say my credentials are adequate.

Just had our ultrasound this afternoon. DH, MIL and my parents were able to all be there and got to see our Split Pea. And she was super active and loving the camera. Until she had had enough and started wiggling around so much she looked like a super hero.

It was so awesome!!! Everything looks good too, so that was super happy.
