It's a boy! I was so sure we were having a girl. My main reason for thinking that was that the sperm were sitting around for 4 days before ovulation happened. So I had us all thinking it was a girl. We went for the ultrasound yesterday and I asked the tech to write down the sex for us on a paper--we wanted to make it a little more special. So we went to a cafe and DD (7) opened the envelope to read it to us. She just stared at the paper, and didn't say anything! Rich and I could see through it and my jaw just dropped. I was so excited though, I couoldn't eat. DD is a little disappointed but fine. DS is happy--there are so many girls in the family, although he gets along great with them.

I was kind of unsure about finding out, but now I'm very glad we did, especially for DD's sake. I was totally ready to start knitting girly things!

Oh that's so exciting! Congrats on your little man! I was so sure we were having a boy I was shocked when we found out it's a girl. I'm glad we found out. Refering to her by name makes it seem like she's already arrived, lol.

Our sperm sat around that long too so we're thinking girl too!! It will be interesting to see if we're wrong to assume too!! Congrats- sounds like a fun lunch with family.

Aww congrats!

We have the complete opposite situation. We DTD the on O day so I thought for sure it was a BOY. I went in for a 16 week ultrasound and it 'looks' like a GIRL. We will get the confirmation in 10 days at the gender scan.
