Re: Let's talk about sex, baby!

  • I’m finding out after I do my NIPT test next Friday!! So excited. I will post my results when I get them! Fingers crossed for a girl but obviously will be over the moon either way 🥰

    I don't know haha. We'll find out after the NIPT testing in a few weeks. This pregnancy feels different than my first but I did an Etsy tarot card reading for fun and she said boy so I voted boy. I'm really wanting one of each and have my fingers crossed for a girl, but will be happy with either!

    ETA it's Monday and I am an idiot and voted for what I thought...oops.
  • @vampirina hahaha! More power to you if you have anything to contribute to that kind of a sex thread. I told DH the only way he is getting any action in 1st Tri is if he arranges for someone to watch DS, we DTD in the middle of the day, and I get to nap before and after. I am just so wiped out in the evenings now. Looking forward to that 2nd Tri energy boost.

    @gingermama46 You're not an idiot, you had a bit of pregnancy brain. I was thinking it would be fun to have a poll for "did you get what you expected" type of a thing later on. With my first two pregnancies I though I was having a boy and I was right with both. This time, I'm getting girl vibes though. 
  • @vampirina that’s what I was expecting when I opened the thread too.
    @gingermama46 I’m a day behind you and that’s when I’ll find out too. I was thisclose to clicking what I want.
    I admire anyone who can be team green. I have major control issues and just couldn’t do it.
    I have an appointment with my OB on March 25th and will have the NIPT drawn then. 
  • I'm so excited for this thread!!! We are still undecided whether we'll try Team Green this time. I'm incredibly impatient and a Type-A planner, so it goes against all my instincts. I don't know if I can do it! With my DD, we did the NIPT and were going to wait before opening the sex portion of the results, or maybe not read the sex results at all. I lasted all of 10 minutes before I caved  :D
  • I’m like those of you who can’t handle being team green although I do think it must be such a special surprise at birth! 
    We find out during anatomy scan so I have a long wait yet 🤣

    I’m doing harmony on Wednesday but telling my midwives and everyone that I DONT want to know. On panorama I know you could check a box and they wouldn’t report it. I’m worried it’ll get reported and somehow put in my portal and ruin the surprise. We still may want to find out but if we do I want to surprise the kids and us so I don’t want to see it in my portal! I’m convinced it’s a girl anyway.

  • We’ll find out at the anatomy scan which seems like forever away! Truly we’ll be so happy no matter what, but I’m hoping for a girl and DH a boy. I hope I have that second trimester energy eventually because the moment I find out I’m going through all the old clothes and getting rid of what we don’t need and organizing all the clothes we’ll use again!

    @purplegoldpirate being a planner was my excuse for finding out with my first, and I'm glad I did because I originally thought I wanted a boy and having a girl took a moment of adjusting (although I'm sure if I'd been team green I would have been thrilled). Now that I have one of both, even being a planner doesn't matter now, because I have LITERALLY anything I could need. So I'm hoping to stay strong!

  • With my daughter, we didn't find out until after the first trimester, so I'm expecting to have to wait a while with this one, too. But I'm excited to find out! This has been such a different pregnancy that I'm really curious to see if the old wives' tales hold up in my case or not.
  • cait32cait32 member
    @pizzaplz having had a girl and a boy, they were completely different pregnancies symptoms-wise, and this third one is just like my daughter (maybe worse), so I'm convinced it's a girl and I would be super surprised if it were a boy!

  • We won't be able to find out until our anatomy scan. That won't be until mid May. 😫 we would be happy with either but DH and I really want a girl. I looked at the Chinese Gender Calendar and according to that I could be having a boy. 🤷‍♀️
  • Just scheduled my genetic blood tests for April 1! So much sooner than I though!

  • @aztecash congratulations 🎉 
  • 😲 am I seeing right? These days you can find out of your having a boy or a girl from a blood test? 🤔
  • @titus211 yes ma’am! It wasn’t huge back in 2015 when I had DD (unless you were AMA) but now it’s standard for insurance to pay for it for nearly everyone.
  • @aztecash yay for a healthy boy! So exciting. 

    @cait32 Way to hold strong! It sounds fun to not know until birth but I could literally never ever do it. I don’t like secrets and especially when I can know if I wanted too. I sometimes google netflix series as I’m watching them because I can’t take not knowing while I’m watching, lol 

    I really wish we can do the test as we had planned but unfortunately, cannot since Baby A didn’t make it. It’ll throw off the tests and could give bad results if baby A had something and it can also pick up that gender. I mean, we can, but why possibly get bad results and worry. 
  • cait32cait32 member
    @steph-ann I HATE surprises and do everything I can to ruin them (which is another reason I made them change the order because if I know THEY know I’ll try to ruin it). I still don’t know if I’ll last this whole pregnancy, but we already have a girl and a boy and allllll the stuff we would need. It’s my last planned kiddo and I just keep hearing it’s the best surprise of your life so I’m going to try! We found out with both of the others.

  • Oh ok! I don’t do the genetic testing so that’s probably why I didn’t know about it since it’s done as part of that! That’s interesting though! I also love finding out as baby is born! I’ve never been wrong in any of my last 4 though so technically I find out ahead of time I guess I just don’t have it confirmed until birth! 😂
  • @steph-ann I also, like @cait32 very typically ruin every surprise I have had, but have been able to hold strong on team green for both of my pregnancies.  Which included numerous ultrasounds, many of which I went to alone!
  • Submitted my sneak peek today sooo hopefully will know next week. Although I don’t think I’ll fully believe it until our anatomy scan. And wow that test was stressful AF but I went to a friends house who has all girls so the possibility of male contamination was null so hoping that helps the results come back as accurate as possible 
  • @pizzaplz Congrats! Boys are so much fun! (I'm sure girls are too, I'm just biased.)
  • @aztecash thank you, I appreciate you saying that. I'm happy, but I'm also pretty nervous. I have a daughter, and this baby will be about the same age difference with her as me and my brother, and our relationship was and is rough. I know this is a totally different person, but I can't help projecting a little! Good thing I've got time to process my own feelings.
