i went in for a 3d scan yesterday at 16 weeks 2 days. first her cord was in the way, then her foot , then we got a GREAT shot of her four fingers curled OVER her privates-
but finally with much perseverance we saw some white lines

i am in shock! i still don't believe it, so i am going in to my friends school (for ultrasound) next week for a re-check...

i really really really wanted another girl, but felt bad for that. i was SURE this was a boy!

AWWWWWW CONGRATULATIONS LIZ!!!
So so happy to hear your wonderful news!!! Did you love the 3D, how amazing was it to see the baby?

You and I and probably the triplet mama are the first ones to have found out in our DDC. I found out on May 3 but I've been feeling secretive about it

I'm just overjoyed for you!!!!!

Happy mama to my four girls S 8.15.02 , L 04.25.06 (gone at 36 weeks ) and L 3.10.07.And another rainbow! Baby C has arrived 10.26.10!

That's so cool! I will be going in for the scan on June 22nd, and we are definitely going to find out...I just have to know! I don't really care either way, though.

Cool! I go July 13th, 11:30 AM. Scheduled so DH can come too, he came last time. I *love* that whole 3D thing.

And yes I will be finding out because I'll need to be able to talk to especially DS1 if it is NOT a girl. He interrupted a conversation where he heard me say I didn't know, to inform whoever it was that HE knows it is a GIRL. (intuition? 5 year old logic? I have a brother....now this should be a girl cause Sophie needs a sister....we had the name I'd like on the fridge the other day in letter magnets... )

I, secretly, actually did buy a couple butterfly outfits like-new on a rummage because DD said she wants "a sister in a butterfly outfit."

lovin DH since 1/04, best mom for my 3 boys 10/04, 11/08, 11/10 one girlie (1/07), one 13 wk (10/13) and 5/15 just your average multigenerational living family!!
