My ultrasound is today at 1:00 PDT!<br><br>
We are really hoping for a boy so <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/fingersx.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="fingersx">: (ya, ya we will love it if it is a girl, all that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">). I am also a little concerned that there may be more than one in there. I have been having twin thoughts and dreams this whole preg, and am way bigger than I normally am at this point.

Woohoo! Exciting day!<br><br><br>
I would use a bunch of smilies to express this thought but they are not working for me at the moment...lol so I have to go with what I have memorized, which is sadly just this <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> But really I am jumping and bouncing around for you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

OK, OK, sorry to make you all wait <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
What actually happened was DH took the whole afternoon off (very rare for him) and he took us for a flight. He just got his pilots license last week so we had not got to go with him yet. We also live 1.5 hours form town, so it was after 8 when I got home and I was tired, so I did not get on here.<br><br>
So.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
It was ONE BIG<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Girl.<br><br><br>
While I am a little sad, we do know how to do girls and at are pretty good at it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I just always thought I would be a mom to a house full of boys, I love football and lots of "boy" things and am not girly at all. My dh is the "last" of his family, he has all sisters and all girl cousins, in a family where carrying the family name is important, so he feels like his is letting generations of his family down. It is also the end of the line for a family name that has been handed to the oldest boy for 6 generations. - Sorry got kind feeling sorry for myself <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/disappointed.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="disappointed"><br><br>
So now just to come up with a name <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: We only decided with #2 a month before she was born and #3 3 hours<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> We have a really hard time coming up with names that both of us like and fit our weird combined requirements - old fashioned, 3 syllable, not a word of any kind, uncommon, not sharing an initial with any of our other girls - see<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: Plus we have to both like it<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Congratulations on your baby girl! I bet your dds are thrilled <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
And woo-hoo to your DH for getting his pilot's license! My Dad has his and we had so much fun growing up and flying all over the place. We'd take day trips to Block Island or Nantucket to go to the beach and get ice cream.. it was a blast <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> He has a little Cessna 172, so it was the perfect size for our family.<br>
I think I'd like to get my license in a few years.. maybe when I'm done with nursing school. One thing at a time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Congrats! I have an aunt and uncle w/ 4 girls, they kept trying for a boy, but gave up after 4 girls. My other uncle had 5 girls (4 surviving) before he had his boy! I don't think any of them mind at all that they have so many girls!

Well, they say that if it's a boy, it's definitely a boy, but if it's a girl it could still be a boy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Anyhow, I know you're a little bummed, but maybe she'll be a tomboy!!!! Give her a middle name that comes from DHs family or something like that so he doesn't feel like it ends with him. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>
Congrats on your sweet baby girl!!!
