  • Hi all! I got the call today (FINALLY) about my genetic screening results and baby is healthy!! :) It was so hard saying no when she asked if I wanted to know the gender! We are going to find out but are having OB write it down at our appointment on Wednesday and will find out on New Years Eve. (DH's B-day is January 1st so that's what he wanted!)

  • Oh @NB817 , you guys are so patient! Just came back from my first OB appointment. She told me that the place that does the ultrasound (it's not the OB here) likely wouldn't tell me and would wait til their radiologist has seen it (only a tech is in there with us). So even though we're going on Friday, we won't find out til Monday most likely! Ugh, the wait is killing us! Can't wait to see our little bean again though. Not sure whether I'll cry less or more than I did last time! Everything else is going fine otherwise! My parents visited last weekend and bought us our stroller (Uppababy Vista), and we got the Mesa car seat...super excited! They've also set up a date for a baby shower (we live 6hrs away from 'home'), so it makes planning more difficult.
    Hope everyone is doing well!

  • Nothing really going on here. I have an OB appointment on the 14 and anatomy scan on the 21. @NB817 You are so patient! I don't know that I could wait that long. Actually, I think I probably could but I know DH couldn't. He wants to know right then and there. I wanted to wait and have a cake made to find out with our family. He wasn't having that. lol

  • I admire you even more! I just can't wait to know what's hiding in there! I absolutely have no preference (and I hate when people ask me that; I usually answered that we waited long enough for this to happen that we'll just take anything), but I just want to know. Okay, I'll admit, I'm a control freak.
    krbjoyNB817HBamama2B
  • @KidShrink I felt the exact same way, no preference for which sex I wanted- I literally just wanted one after 5 years of trying! :) I totally couldn't wait so the minute they asked me if I wanted to know I said yes and they told me over the phone (I had an early blood test and found out around 10 weeks or 11 weeks). I was so happy I choked up and wanted to cry when she said "girl" then I just texted my husband and told him (he didn't really care about any big reveal lol).

    Nothing else new here, just trekking along! I will be 27 weeks on Friday. A little nervous about my glucose testing - I can't remember if that's next week or in 2 weeks. I have a total sweet tooth and have been eating candy and ice cream etc a lot lately...so now I'm trying to be better about eating and I'm trying to be more active.

    I'm also thinking about when/if I want to get maternity pics taken. I don't want to do it too early where my bump isn't big, but I also don't want to wait too long and I get huge and bloated either! I'm already thinking I look fat in pics (it's the double chin and fat face I hate, I think my body is fine).

  • Almost 23 weeks, I have been spotting since Sunday but they cannot find a cause, babies, placentas, and fluid are all fine and my cervix is long and closed.

    I found out I will likely be delivering 6 hours away from home because of Baby B's defect, I will know more on 12/30 when I see the MFM again.  They promise they will have a plan then.

    Exciting gender news from so many people in the thread, fun to read :)

  • @efhoping2010 : hope that bleeding resolves soon...you certainly don't need any more stress at this point! It's nice that you'll have a plan soon, and I have all my fingers and toes crossed that all turns out okay for baby B and you.

    Hopefully, I'll have exciting gender news tomorrow. Otherwise, it'll benjust in time for next week's check in :)

  • @efhoping2010 Sorry you're spotting. That's so scary! Hopefully it stops soon.

  • @efhoping2010 It's tough hearing about your baby B, but I have faith it will all be ok. Glad you are getting a plan together and seemingly keeping your wits about you. You and your family are in my thoughts.

    @KidShrink A BOY!? Congrats! How exciting!!!

    @mrsloriw I was the same when they asked me if I wanted to know, over the phone. I cried...my husband and I had her on speaker phone. I pretty much had to shout, "YES! I WANNA KNOW!" cuz she was having a hard time hearing us lol. I knew I'd be happy either way.

    @NB817 So glad your test came back healthy!!
