<p>okay, so I totally stole this from the March DDC <span><img alt="shy.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/shy.gif">.</span></p>
<p><span>I know we have a running thread and I love reading it, but I'm kinda lazy and pregnant and I don't want to count</span> <span><img alt="redface.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/redface.gif"> but I *DO* want to know where we are at now that those of us having anatomy scans are about that time. and I like looking at polls.</span> <span><img alt="wink1.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/wink1.gif"></span></p>
<p>If you haven't had your scan yet, but you ARE finding out, wait to vote until after your US?</p>
<p><span>Since you can't vote twice for one answer, I had to add a sep options</span> for twin mamas.</p>
<p>After we've all had our LOs, I'll put up another poll or roster or something to count 'em up. I love looking at those.</p>

Unless there are lurking twins moms I don't know, I'm pretty sure all the april ddc twins are either boy/girl or two boys...</p>
<p>speaking of, wow, the boys are winning by a lot! I'm totally interested to see what happens when more of us vote.</p>

<p>I voted because my midwife is going to be on vacation for my due date (March 28th), so I am now officially HOPING to have an April baby!  ;)  And mine is a boy.</p>

<p>We're having a BOY! I am still trying to psych myself up for the reality of having a little boy.  I have become so comfortable with the whole girl thing! This is throwing me for a loop!!</p>

<p>Allical- Just wanted to let you know you are not alone in having a difficult time adjusting to the idea of a baby boy. I have a toddler girl and was completely prepared to give her a sister. I was so stunned at the ultrasound to see boy parts that I started crying involuntarily. I felt terrible because, after two miscarriages, I am thrilled to be having a healthy baby, but it was a shock and I am still wrapping my head around a baby boy. I know it will be love at first sight, but I am letting myself work through the other emotions for a little while longer.</p>

<p>Seriously guys, the number of boys to girls is shocking everywhere I know of right now!  Of the dozens and dozens of babies born in the last 1-2 years, and all those I know are pregnant right now, only a tiny handful have had or are having girls! I've often wondered what is going on and why this is.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>When I was growing up, we had many families with many children each (8-15 children each - NONE adopted), and the ratio of girls to boys in my age (teens) was 3 girls to 1 boy! now in my moms group, of the 21 children there - oldest being 7 - only FIVE are girls. Three more babies are due in March, April, and June. I'm having another boy, and we'll see what the others have.</p>

<br><br><p>This is me 100%! I teared up pretty bad during the u/s but played it off as an "It's a tears of happiness" moment.  Like you, I know we love this baby, and once he is here, we will never be able to imagine life without him. We were planning on only having two children , but I really feel like we are missing another girl now, so we'll see how that goes ;)</p>

<p>This is partly why I'm not sure what I want to do in terms of finding out. I really, really am on board with the idea of having a girl--I have all sisters and have always wanted a daughter. So it will be an adjustment if it is a boy. I'm wondering if it would be wise to know now so I have time to get used to the idea.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We had our ultrasound today and DH is in possession of an envelope containing the sex...I had wanted to wait until birth but I don't know if I'll hold out (DH is okay either way)!!!!<br>

<p>This is boy #2 for me!  My 3 year old LOVED watching me get the U/S.  He didn't want to leave and we had to tell him that we was having a baby brother and not a sister.  He kept saying we are having a girl.</p>
