|jodieanneanton||ha ha ha ha ha! @DuchessTergie , you made me literally laugh out loud at your "penis growing inside me" comment. How funny. Oh, it is wonderful to have a son. The only thing really scary about him is how much he eats! I am glad that my experience can help you know it is not as scary as you imagine. Except for the eating.|

|iixivboots||I know I haven't been on here much. I just found out that both of my twins are boys. I have an amazing two year old son. But I'm really really sad, we won't be having more kids so there is no chance of having a girl for me.|
|Today 06:27 PM|
@bren94 , with my 3rd, I wanted another girl... BADLY. I was a mother of girls, I would say. I thought boys were scary. But you know what?!!? When number 3 came out a boy (we were surprised), I was overjoyed and I have such an amazing bond with him! He is so funny, sensitive and sweet. A very loving child. There is definitely something special between a mother and son, too, I have discovered.

I've been thinking this since you found out, you might want to check again at a followup ultrasound if you get one (not sure what your schedule/plan is with your OB/Midwife). I was just reading that the testicles don't descend until 18 weeks. Probably easier to say for sure it's a boy than for sure it's a girl, but then I don't know the circumstances of your ultrasound where you found out. Our routine ultrasound isn't until 22 weeks, so I'm guessing that as long as the baby cooperates, we will be sure by then. I would just hate for you to buy all girl stuff and OOPS, surprise! on the due date.

|Valerie11||I'm excited about either a boy or a girl, since I like the names I picked for each. I feel like I'll be more sad for the name I won't get to use than that I won't be having one or the other.|

|sarahjs||The possibility of disappointment is one of the biggest reasons I don't want to find out what the baby is. I don't have a strong desire for either a boy or a girl and have pros and cons for both. I think it would be great for my husband to have a son, but I also wouldn't want to only have boys. I would like at least one girl, but then I also worry she will inherit my female issues. So either way, I will have at least a little bit of disappointment. That sounds awful, doesn't it?! I just want to stick to being surprised at birth and hope that there will be no room for any disappointment with a new baby in my arms.|

|dentonmidwife||I have three awesome boys. Each time, I wanted a girl. But I have quickly got over any disappoint. I have found with 2-4 that it has been easier to wait until baby is here on my emotions. You can't help but love them at that point.|

And you will love him even more when you meet him! I was hoping both of my boys were girls. Boo. But you know what? I got over it (RIGHT away, and then again) when we would hang out with girls... those toddler years!! I always felt so blessed to not have to listen to the whining and bossing that I would hear from every girl we would hang out with. Of course, now I DO want a girl, but only because I've done the boy thing twice already, and it would be sweet to experience the alternative.
Congrats on your newfound knowledge! How exciting, and another level for you to feel a connection from! Boys truly are wonderful, and adventurous and playful and sweet and soft and loving... It's what you put into them that help to mold them into lovely little people pals.

|bren94||We found out today that baby is a boy! I'm happy but I'll admit I reaaaally wanted a girl and so did DH. I'm a little worried he's disappointed but oh well. I'm so in love with him already!|

|Valerie11||Thanks TeeThatsMe, happyday8598, and writermama12 for staying in our DDC even if you end up delivering in January. Things wouldn't be the same around here without you.|

|jodieanneanton||Yeay! This is so exciting!|

|sarafl||It looks like I'm having a girl! (Hopefully that ultrasound was right, because I've already spun some pink/brown merino to make her coming home blanket)|

We are having a boy. Now I am even more anxious to hold this baby! My sister had a boy two days ago and I just want to go hold him! Boooooo for distance!

I definitely plan to have another peaceful waterbirth at home. I have pics of my family on my business website at www.evahomebirth.com
I live on a small family farm that we're steadily getting more and more "settled". It has been a great project!

Happy to be joined by a fellow trouble maker I too will probably only go 37 weeks as well due to uterine rupture. We are bump buddies and birth buddies. !!!!!

|jodieanneanton||@Milk8shake , Congratulations! We overlapped slightly on the TTCAL boards a while back, but you probably don't remember me. (I was mostly a lurker and didn't come out until you had stopped posting over there.) I am so happy for you and hope all goes well this time. You have been through so much! Congrats again.|
|08-23-2014 03:42 AM|
|DuchessTergie||Milk8shake, I'm rooting for you and your babe! Welcome to the DDC.|
|08-23-2014 02:28 AM|
Due Date: "Officially", mid Feb, but it's actually likely to be late Jan. I won't be allowed to go much past 37 weeks.
How long it took you to get your BFP: We've been trying for 5 years.
What number child this is for you: #1 hopefully. This is my eighth pregnancy, with seven miscarriages.
Family (spouse, other children, pets, etc.): My husband and our two incredibly spoiled dogs.
Baby's gender (hopes/guesses): Honestly, healthy boy OR girl is fine. DH would love a boy.
Birth plans/preferences: Scheduled c section due to a uterine abnormality. Whatever results in a healthy, living baby.
Anything else you would like to share: Terrified to be joining a DDC. This is my longest and most promising pregnancy so far, but it still feels so foreign to think it might actually be successful.

|jodieanneanton||Welcome, Sarah! My son's bday is February 20! AND My sister lives in Detroit, so I am up there a few times a year. Congrats on your pregnancy!|
