First, the great news (okay, none of it is bad news...), just cuz I can't *not* post it- my SCH is resolved.

Pics of them putting their little heads together
Pic of them snuggling (Nanette, I'm sure jealous of your 3D snuggle pic! They wouldn't turn on the 3D for me. Bummer)

The OB who did my scan moonlights at one of those commercial "fetal photography" places, so he's really experienced in sex determination... well, he didn't ASK me if we wanted to know (but, TBF, I didn't say I *didn't* want to know and we were really struggling w/ the decision, so maybe the universe was taking it away ) because he said he's 100% certain....

Baby A is a BOY!

I thought it was really too early to tell, but he said he never would say "certain" unless he's for sure. He said he would eat his shirt if baby A ends up a girl.

So, then, I just had to know about B, yk? He looked hard at Baby B; he said he was leaning towards girl, but he couldn't be for sure.

Baby B's still a surprise!

Has anyone else been told a sex this early? Do you believe it?

TBH, I've felt boy for a while. Having been told boy, tho, was good, bc it made me realize that I actually would very much like another daughter as well.

Also, I'm more excited about the pg progressing than I've been since my BFP (hyperemesis does that, I guess?), so it was a really good thing, even if the doc turns out to be wrong

but a lesson must be lived in order to be learned.
and the clarity to see and stop this now
that is what i've earned (a.d.)

Awww so cute!!! Isn't it a relief to see them moving around? It was like instant weight off my chest I'm so happy for you girl, especially with all you've been through this PG! Grow babies Grow!!

PS- My u/s tech said one of mine was most likely a boy too (he was recommended for being really really good at super early sex determination), but couldn't tell at all on the other- that's too funny! We're hoping for B/G, but will take 2 healthy babies Do you have any premonitions on what the other one is?

Wife (34) of 13 years to DH (36), Mom to Logan (10), and Tristan and Cael, the wee ones, born 3/18/11, and little baby Silas born 1/22/13. TTC #5!

That's awesome! YAY for everything being cleared up! I can't imagine knowing gender that early, but it'll be fun. You can start planning all the fun boy things to buy!

3d US is supposed to be harder on the babies. So, you can be happy about your 2d pics

Very neat.
