Re: The Sex Thread

  • I should have mine in a week. 😁

  • Heyoooooo I totally thought the same thing as @ccmrc143 when I saw the thread title and was like "kudos to y'all on that, but this is a no wake zone these days". Never mind...

    I'm supposed to have my NIPT results sometime between Feb 4 and 8, so naturally I'm checking my email 3-4 times a day now for them.
  • We are waiting for our anatomy scan to find out. I have to wait until April 6th!

  • We should get our NIPT results soon, but I'm team green this time around too!
  • Congrats everyone 🥰🥰
  • Congratulations @gingermama29!!!
  • @justyouraveragemama Sending you lots of hugs! 
  • Wow 12 boys and 5 girls on this thread!!! I have no idea why I think this, but I remember learning somewhere that during times of extreme stress or chaos, more boys are born than girls (well there are always more boys than girls, but in a more serious way). I wonder if there are more boys during this time period because of covid/economy/etc? My idea was that boys help rebuild, repopulate, or fight if there’s war? When I tried googling this, I got nothing, so really I could’ve made it up and DH thinks I’m insane for saying it. But there I said it to you guys 😂
    I was just chatting with my grandmother who had 4 boys. When prepping for baby number 5, she wallpapered the nursery with a blue pattern. Naturally, baby 5 ended up a girl 🥰
  • @ccmrc143 I thought it was the opposite where more girls were born under extreme stress but I don’t remember where I read it at😂
  • @justyouraveragemama I read this, too! I think the study referred to three time periods--the spanish flu, the roaring 20s, and the great depression. And during the spanish flu and the great depression the ratio was almost equal. But during the 20s, significantly more boys were born. So fewer boys we born during the challenging times. I have now had two boys during the pandemic (including this current kiddo cooking away), so I am the exception :D
  • @tumbleweed-1 welcome to the club!!! I know it’s hard to be excited. I gave myself a bit of time to be disappointed. I wanted a girl  badly. At this point I’m just excited to dive into boy everything and I’m shocked I can honestly say I’m ok with it now.

    Aw @novelblessings that’s amazing news!!!! Happy for you! 
  • @ccmrc143 thanks! I think I was also prepping for another girl, it’s still sinking in. Time to figure out that little dude’s name now.
