Well, over the weekend I had some spotting and cramping- very scary to me. But not enough to totally panic- my midwife even came over and listened to baby's heartbeat, to be sure baby wasn't stressed (baby was fine- hb of 147) and she gave me some catnip tea to drink to calm my uterus. But after that I decided to cave on the u/s issue- I had been planning on totally skipping it, but I was feeling so very freaked out (I've not had an easy pg to this point either). So I had an u/s this morning. Baby looked fine- we saw no reason for the spotting- and since dh really really wanted to know (I wanted a suprise, but he is letting me have the homebirth I want)- we found out baby is a BOY!<br><br>
I'm excited to have a boy, but at the same time a little dissappointed I don't get to have the suprise. We agreed to only find out if baby showed us everything to the point where we could tell for ourselves- and I'm pretty sure that was a little penis! (and the tech agreed)

Congrats on the boy and even bigger congrats on the healthy babe! I had unexplained bleeding during my first pregnancy and the benefit/relief provided by the u/s was worth it (at least for me).<br><br>
I'm so glad everything looks good!

I was in the same boat a few weeks ago, well not spotting but sever cramps so i also agreed reluctantly to a scan. ( never scanned at all with dd) we also found out and i agree i am also sad not to have a surprise at the end, feels like cheating, but glad all is okay with you.

Thanks everyone! I've been feeling rather stressed the last few days with all of this- and getting on here today and seeing all your sweet messages, just brightened my day!
