So, I think I may be the first who's found out! We're having another.....


BOY!

Not my first choice, but he's healthy and that's a good thing

Anybody else?

me, my man, and our boys (1/08 and 3/11)

I haven't had the official determination from ultrasound but I think we're having another boy from the heart rate. I should find out at the next appt though. I'm sooo excited! I can't wait to find out for sure.

This is our third and our first two were surprises, but we wanted to find out this time. Our OB is 90% sure we're having our third boy. We're a little bummed b/c we wanted a little girl at some point and this is likely our last. But of course we'll love him no matter what. We'll have our "big" u/s sometime in the next month and know "for sure."

I'm high risk, and have been seeing the doc every two weeks...he's finally letting me go four weeks...but that's why I get u/s at every appt.

We're scheduled for Nov 12. I'm so excited! I just have a feeling that it's a girl, partially based on gut feeling, and partially on heartbeat and ovulation being way after DTD. We'll see. I'll let you all know

We find out on Nov 22nd. I can't wait until then. I'm so tempted to call and move it up. I need to be patient. Less than 3 weeks. We're hoping for a boy as that would even it out but whatever God gives us will be wonderful! DS will be VERY disappointed if it's a boy though. He's been praying every night that he gets a brother.

We wont be finding out. I'll live vicariously through all of you.

Stayseeliz, I'm so excited for you! By not moving up the date you have a better chance of things being more developed and easier to see.

:-) Then we'll count down together. I go at 10am on the 22nd. My prediction? Boy. It would not only even us out, but it would keep our pattern-- girl girl, boy boy, girl girl, boy....? My first trimester was easy peasy compared to all the others I've had, and I tend to have easier ones with the boys. I didn't get a raging yeast infection like I got with my last two girls. Our timing was perfect for a boy.

So it'll be a girl. !!! But I won't be disappointed no matter what.

I found out last week that we're having a girl, which I totally wasn't expecting. I have two sisters and we have four boys between us -- my mom is thrilled!

My middle sister is due early May, so I'm hoping she has a girl too so my baby won't feel all alone in a sea of boys.

We're definitely going to be finding out the sex - next Tuesday (November 9) is our u/s. Up until a week ago, I was pretty sure this baby was a girl. Suddenly I've been using he pronouns and am feeling more boy-ish. But really, I have no idea, and can't wait to find out if only because this will mark that we're 50% of the way through this pregnancy!

DW and I are moms to two teens (DD 17 and DS 15) adopted through CAS in 2007 and a toddler (DD 2) born at home in March 2011.

This will be me. I'm hoping for a boy but knowing my luck it will be another girl.

That's exactly when my appointment is!! So far we've had the same birth order as my parents. Boy, girl, girl so if we can swing another boy it will be matching exactly!! We're done either way this time so it really doesn't matter. But I can't wait to find out!!

We won't know until the kiddo is here.

We have girl, boy, girl so this one will be.... girl you would think, but the heartbeat was 'boy,' if you go by that.

I think the girl-boy-girl-boy combo is pretty rare.

We won't find out until birth -- but I think Dh and I will both fall over with surprise if it's a boy! We're happy either way though...

I'm having my 18 week anatomy scan Friday!!! I'll get to find out. But my m/w thinks it will be a Boy and a Girl based on her infallible h/b predictions. I was feeling BB at first, but have been feeling BG for the last several weeks. And their movements are so different from one another. I guess only time will tell!!

I feel like I'm having a girl... but it's just a feeling really. My MS pattern has been more similar to my experience with my daughter. We are finding out, but not until Dec 14th when I'll be 22 weeks. I'm having my ultrasound late so that my partner can attend.

Baby's heart rate is 137-139... does that indicate boy or girl? Under 140 means boy I think, but it's so darn close!

I've actually know since crazy early (and had it confirmed since), that one of my babes is a

The other babe is tricky. S/he always has butt shoved in some weird position. I've been told "maybe girl" then "maybe boy", so I'm waiting it out. My next scan is 11/23

We didn't find out last pg and I liked it then. But, honestly, finding out this pg just felt right. I'm glad we did/are going to. Hearing some happy news, and having some happy news to look forward to during this miserable pg is really helping keep me going (maybe my little babe knows that and that's why we can't get a good shot )

I just got the results from my amnio today and am thrilled to be having a girl. I have two boys already, and have been having a very hard time feeling connected to the little being inside my tummy (this is a *very* unplanned pregnancy). But today I felt really happy for the first to be pregnant - and my husband (who has also had a very hard time accepting that I'm pregnant) was equally happy to hear that we are having a girl.

I've got this fear that I heard the receptionist on the phone wrong and I'm going to go in for my check up and find out it's really a boy...

We'll be finding out on the 24th, so we'll have news to share with the families on Thanksgiving.

My 3yo ds is adamant that the baby is a girl. Well, except for the time he told me it was a boy and a girl.

I still haven't decided if I am finding out or not. The ultrasound is Thursday so I need to decide soon. DS says boy, except when he says boy and girl, and DD says girl. I am feeling girl, but I did with DS as well, so who knows. I think I am leaning towards finding out, but since this is probably our last, I am thinking about going for the surprise for once, I just can't decide.
