  • @dahliasanddogs yay! Congrats! Was wondering when things would start rolling on this board. Did you do blood work to find out?
  • I'll have an answer within 7-10 business days lol 
    @dahliasanddogs congratulations on your girl!

  • Anyone want to share their ideas on how they're sharing the gender with family?

    @nightdreamr13 My husband and I had our immediate family over and just had a cake with pink/ blue inside with our first pregnancy. We will do the same this time around.

    Thanks everyone, so happy that this is finally beginning to feel real. It's always fun too when your gut feeling is right :)
    @septoctkids Yes, I found out from the cell free DNA testing (NIPT). I hate secrets! 
    @supermom34482 Here's to the next week flying by!

  • Congratulations!!
  • @stefhslove19 I get it! I feel like as much as we just want a healthy baby there’s always a tiny bit of us keeping our fingers crossed for one sex or the other too. Maybe finding out so early was a good thing! I’m glad you are excited now. I’m sure your boys are thrilled too! congratulations!

  • @supermom34482 how are you holding up waiting for the results?! We are in waiting mode now too! Time is dragging lol

  • @septoctkids As the days are going by I am losing my patience...I have an appt Mon and Dr will give me results in an envelope. DH is working and won't be home until next day. He's like, how do you want us to find out and I said, by opening the letter. I don't want to wait any longer! I also have a strong feeling this is another girl which would make it our 3rd. It makes me sad I might never have a son but my girls are amazing and healthy so what more could I ask for?

  • @supermom34482 exactly! I couldn’t wait any longer with our son. We just tore open the envelope! Lol we did a little cake for our close family though. I’m so anxious waiting too. Thinking of you!! 🙂

  • @sunshine2417 congratulations! That’s so exciting. Are you having blood word done for the gender too at your OB office or do you need to wait til the 20 week scan? I would think it would be right since it didn’t detect the Y chromosome! 
  • @septoctkids I’m not sure yet. We have the option to do all the early screening if we want, but DH was kinda like “eh, why bother?” I haven’t checked with insurance if or how much they cover, but ideally I’d like to get it done if we can just so we’re prepared. Also, I’d love to confirm the sex before we actually tell everyone since we’ve already waited this long and because I know my family at least will get hung up on it and I don’t wanna hear any “ohhhh but we were so excited for a girl...” if it turns out not to be, ya know? Last time my parents were visiting, my dad bone-headedly said to me “your mom reaaaaallly loves ::DS::, but if you REALLY want to make her happy, you should give her another granddaughter”

    ::insert eye rolling and hot firing daggers shooting from my eyes here, especially since they’re unaware of my long MC history, largely because they regularly say bone-headed things::

  • I dont know the sex yet but i have such anxiety about it. I have 1 son and idc either way. My husbands parents and sister have 3 grandsons and they know this is our last so they are really pushing for a girl. Every time we talk about it the baby they say "she" or "her" etc. Its so silly to me, we have no control over that so why make us feel bad about it. If it is a boy i will be so protective of him because of this. My husband would like a boy becausr he always wanted a brother. I genuinely do not care either way, i just love babies!

  • I have my first trimester bloodwork on Tuesday. I would love to do the Harmony test to find out. My other two (I had in VA) I would have to pay almost $400 out of pocket so I waited for my 20 week scan. Hope now that I’m in TX, maybe my insurance coverage is slightly different?

  • @amomh I totally understand what you mean! Isn't it SO awkward when people place that pressure on you? Like, as if you secretly planned to have a boy or a girl, or as if you have ANY control over it at all what so ever (unless going through more intense scientific processes). And if you have a boy, will they still be happy for you? I only have brothers and always wanted a sister, so I feel like my parents make a big deal about it that "I've always wanted a little girl" and now I'm like well, I'm happy either way! I love my son and will totally love any other boys I have or girls too! I don't need their inflicted pity.

    @amomh we are in the same boat. All boy grandkids here too. We will be totally excited either way. What more can we ask for than a healthy baby. :)

  • @amomh and @septoctkids
    Same here too. All boys on DH side. So in laws are pushing hard for a girl. (I think I'm having girls, but bloodwork isn't being done until Wednesday)
    But my mom said, "you take what you are given and be happy about it" so I'm sticking to that 😆😉

  • @aliciac2008 congratulations! I have a 16 month old son and he’s such a little love! He’s a total mamas boy lol. You’ll love having a son too. <3
    aliciac2008
  • @aliciac2008 I don’t have a daughter (other than this pregnancy) so I can’t speak to that relationship, but with a little boy you just fall so in love with every little thing they do! Their love and their hugs and their kisses and when they just want their mama... It’s such a special love and bond! ❤️

  • @aliciac2008 congrats! I agree with @sunshine2417, boys are so sweet. My son said “I love you so much, mommy!” today and I cried.

  • Thanks everyone. I’m already feeling a lot better about it. I just think it’s going to be a lot different than having a girl so I’m a little scared, but it will just be a new adventure!

  • @aliciac2008 I have 2 boys and they are so freaking sweet. This one is a girl and I’m a little worried. My boys are really easy and even tempered. I’m hoping for the same (trying not to gender stereotype!) but having 2 boys, you get your full of hugs and kisses, trust me 😀
