Hi Girls. I'm due 15th Oct. It's also my first. We found out about 2 weeks ago that we're having a girl. Although I'm still not convinced as something keeps telling me it's a boy. Pari, good luck with the ultrasound. For me it was amazing as you can see almost everything!

I found out a few weeks ago too, that i'm having a girl. Do you two have any names picked out yet? We are going with Arabelle. Everyone kept telling me i'm having a boy and I was so convinced...but then at the US...the technician said GIRL! It was totally amazing to see her on the screen..she was sucking her thumb too, then flipped over and mooned us. : ) Taffy, what makes you think its a boy? Did they show you her "girl" parts? They did for us and printed the pictures out and everything. Pari, let us know the outcome tomorrow!! I haven't been able to feel as much activity as you..I wish! How about you Taffy? This is my first as well...

I'm due a little earlier than the rest of you - October 7th. This will be my first as well. We're having a baby boy - we got a nice clear view at the ultrasound. My dh jokes about our son, the p___no star.

I could clearly see that the baby was a girl. In fact I said so before the technician! I just always dream its a boy and can't get my head around it. I have 3 bros and no sisters and DH has 2 bros so I guess it's about time for a girl in the family. I've been feeling movement since about 15 weeks but I haven't got much muscle tone following an op 2 years ago (and I hate exercise). Now she kicks me pretty much all day long and even startles me at times. I think we've decided on a name now, Megan, as I'm welsh but married an englishman. I lost my welsh surname so she's going to have a welsh name. I actually got the name from the book Thornbirds and I always thought Meggie was sweet for a little one and the name grows up with her to either Meg or Megan.

Ok...what does DH stand for?? I know its the husband...right? I used to want a boy as my first child so badly....but my husband has a 5 year old son from a previous marriage...and so with having both of them in the house...we need another girl!! haha.. So i'm so happy that this is what we are getting. She is going to sucker those boys so much...they have no clue! :-P

I'm due Oct. 17th! This is my second, I have a five year old son and we found out a few weeks ago that we are having another boy! My son is so excited so have a baby brother.

Hi ladies! I'm due a bit earlier, on October 5th with my first! We don't know the gender yet as the hospital won't disclose prior to 24 weeks (which I am now!) but hopefully we will find out soon! I hope everyone is feeling well... I'm feeling pretty good these days, and feel so much movement throughout each day. It's really amazing!! Anyone have names picked out yet? We have first names only so far - Cooper for a boy, Calla for a girl. Congrats everyone!!

 

KLT - June 16

jenrodel - really? They won't disclose? Why is that? Where are you living? Did you have your big U/S yet? Cooper and Calla are both very cute names! I like... eyes82000 - sounds like we are in a very similar situation..except my 5 year old is not my birth son... but....still! : ) How exciting..its so weird to think we are on the exact same page as other people out there...I mean, you know its of course completely possible..but when you find others that have the same due date, etc...its just very very cool. : )

 

jenrodel - June 16

Hi KLT! I live in Vancouver, BC. Apparantly it is quite common here for them not to disclose the s_x :( My Doctor told me it was because of gender specific abortion as horrible as that is. After 24 weeks they will tell you, but you only get one ultrasound at 20 weeks! (Which I had, and it was sooo AMAZING!) I have a great Dr. though who says at my nxt appt she will book me another U/S for about 28 weeks, so hopefully we can find out then! (I'm just waaaay too curious to let this one go!)

 

KLT - June 16

hey jenrodel! I'm confused...what do you mean about gender specific abortions? At my first appt I had a little scan done in the doctors office - I was about 8 weeks or so at that time...all I could see was a little blob..my little blob. haha. Then at 18 or 19 weeks I went for the big ultrasound and got to find out I was having a girl and they printed out pictures for me and everything. They did that with the blob scan too! I suppose I'll have another at some point? I don't know. I couldn't wait til 28 weeks!! Ahh! That would drive me nuts! You'll definitely have to let me know what the outcome is!! : )

 

jenrodel - June 16

KLT - I don't know much about it, but I guess due to certain cultural and/or religous beliefs some people will have an abortion if the child is a girl instead of a boy. I guess it becomes an issue when you live in a major city where there are many different cultures etc, although it seems mostly to happen in western canada for some reason! I know, I am DYING to find out! It's been so hard to wait, we were so disappointed when we couldn't find out at 20 weeks. We did however get some great pics of the baby and the ultrasound was still amazing. 28 weeks seemed like soooo long to have to wait, but now that I'm at 24 weeks it is finally almost here. With my luck the baby won't cooperate and we still won't find out haha! I will keep you posted though!!

jenrodel : A friend of a friend just got her U/S done and the umbilical cord was in the way, so now she can't find out what she's having and they won't do it again for her. When I went in, they printed out pictures labeled "Girl Parts". ha. The technician showed me that I was in fact having a girl...said "see those little lines there? that means she's a girl." And he says he's never wrong. : ) I was thinking about what the gender specific abortion meant after I posted to you..and then realized. Duh! Ok....so four more weeks for you....ugh. Are you hoping for one or the other?

 

jenrodel - June 16

Haha that's cute that they labelled it "girl parts" for you!! Originally I had thought I wanted a boy for my first child and I think my husband would like a boy! But as time has progressed I realized it really doesn't matter - either way I just want to know! I do have a feeling that it's a girl though... I guess we'll see if I'm right! (Either in four weeks or maybe more like 16 weeks!) Also, technically our hospital will not do more than the one u/s at 20 weeks unless there is a reason to be concerned, so my Dr. is going to make something up like she doesn't think I'm growing properly so that we can go in again :) I'm glad she at least understands how we feel!! Do you have a name picked out yet? Whereabouts do you live?

 

pari - June 16
