Team Blue or Pink? — The Bump
Parenting after a Loss

Team Blue or Pink?

I just can't wait to find out.  I always have had this feeling that I'm having all boys.  I'm not sure if I'm just setting myself up so I'm not disappointed I don't have a girl or what.

Everyone is hoping/guessing that this baby will be a girl since we already have a boy.  DH's side has all boys so they really want a girl.  I secretly wouldn't mind a girl but have already accepted I will have all boys so I'm fine either way.  If the u/s results tell me it's a girl, I will go through a ton of emotions: shock, fear, and excitement.  I am worried that a lot of people will be disappointed when they find out it's another boy.

I have a 90 min u/s scheduled for Sept 8.  I will be 16w, 4d.  I asked the nurse if they will look for gender and they said I could ask them to.  Otherwise I will have my level 2 u/s at the following appt (3 or 4 more weeks!).

I talked to DH and he was reluctant but doesn't have to work until later in the day so I think I'm going to make him come with me just incase they can see something.  I'm a little worried though that they could be wrong and then I find out at my next appt the opposite sex and he's not there.  I just don't want to get people excited/disappointed to find out it's the opposite sex.  But I guess that could happen at any time anyway and I'm not sure I want to wait another 3-4 weeks!

Re: Team Blue or Pink?

  • My u/s is 90 mins because they are doing a growth u/s and I am high risk so they are having a Pediatric Cardiologist do a PR Interval of LO's heart to make sure there is no heart block.

    Maybe we will find out and then confirm at 20 weeks and wait to share the news until the 20 week u/s.  *shrugs*

    I think this is a good idea.

  • We found out at 15w3d with Lucas. Confirmed at 16w because I was in a car accident (minor fender bender) and when I went in for the anatomy scan he was still a boy. lol

    I want a girl badly, but I too have accepted that I'll probably have all boys. Our families were told that they are not to be disappointed in the gender because all that matters was health.

  • Don't get me wrong, my family will be thrilled with a baby... boy or girl.  I just think they all hope for a girl.

    DH was against the idea of keeping it secret.  He says we'll find out (if baby cooperates) and then we will confirm at my following appt.  If the result is different, it's different.  He said he can't keep the secret that long.  Big Smile
