Are you going to be finding out the sex of bubs?

We aren't planning to this time, we did for the other 3 but thought a suprise would be nice for our last bub.
I reckon I will struggle though!

Yes we have already found out from the amnio and it's a boy. We are thrilled. We had a surprise with number 2 which was nice too.

No we are not going to find out. We both are happy to wait until the end to know. This is our first baby.

DD1 is trying to think up a name for her little sister  already.

ETA Gratz Lozypopz! I take it that the amino gave good news.

Yes. Hubby wants to know and I figured he doesn't ask for much so we'll find out.

Yes yes yes!  I'm appalling at secrets.
Besides - means we only have half the number of baby names to sort through.
And even though I really want a girl, I'm pretty sure it's going to be a boy - so I'd like to have come to terms with it before the birth.

We are both desperate to know!  I can barely wait the 4 weeks for the morph scan!  I'm seeing my OB at 18 weeks and would love her to take a look, but my DH can't be at that appointment and I can't find out without him, so I'll just have to wait  :-)

No way we could wait until the end!  Like epg said - at least you only have half the amount of names to worry about! That, and we're super organised, anal retentive control freaks  :-)

Yes, can't wait either, 19 more days! This is our last and we have soo much babystuff would love to be able to get rid of half of it before the baby arrives. Also the kids are hanging to find out, the girls want a sister and ds wants a brother, so someone wil be upset wink.gif

we are dying to know!! booked in on the 26th for next scan and will find out then, fingers crossed.
dh feels he will bond better once he knows what it is and for him i can see it will make a big difference.
i just want to be really organised...and i can't stand secrets! biggrin.gif

(for the record, im thinking boy!)

We had an early morph scan on Thursday at 16+3 to so that we could make a decision whether to have an amnio or not.  Everything looked perfect so we opted out of the invasive testing.  Interestingly, the genetic counsellor redid our T21 risk calculation and determined it to be 1:370 not 1:109.  
We also found out we are having a girl.  
I would have chosen boy if I ever had an option but am quite happy either way, OH is chuffed too.

I've got a name I'm campaigning for. DP isn't objecting yet. DD has decided her sister will be called 'Babybab.'

I'm 17 weeks, 2 days. I'm not finding out - much to the disgust of pretty much everyone I know.

When I ask why it's such a big deal they make stupid comments about buying the wrong colour clothes. I say I don't care if my son wears pink or my daughter wears blue. A colleague said that if I dress my son in pink long enough he'll turn gay. I laughed and said I don't think so, but if he did I wouldn't care - what's wrong with having a gay son? She went purple trying to hold her homophobia in...

I have decided not to find out biggrin.gif definatly last bub and I was a surprise. I will have my scan at 20 weeks so that is still just over 4 weeks away. I am so excited to see my little jelly bean again!
DD is convinced its a girl... LOL she was convinced DS was a boy so maybe she has just spilt the beans LOL we will see in 24 weeks i suppose biggrin.gif

Hi Ladies,

First time posting here! This is our first and we're definitely finding out.

Both DH and I can't wait...I really don't think I could wait the whole 9 months.  original.gif

Definitely going to find out!

Then I don't need to buy everything yellow rolleyes.gif

I have had the weirdest feeling since the beginning that its going to be a girl..I don't think I can deal with the suspense of waiting until the end to find out!!

We have 2 boys and because this pregnancy has been so different we thought it was a girl. The obs said she thinks it's a girl aswell as she saw 3 lines not 1. Have my 20 week scan Monday so hope to get confirmation then.

Sassy some people are just unbelievable aren't they. Sad world we live in.

DH and I decided we weren't going to find out, but I'm having second thoughts and think I might get the sonographer to write it down for me.  Otherwise I might find out at one of my extra scans that DH doesn't come to.  I'd love at least one girl, otherwise I might need to prepare myself for being the only female in a house of 5 males!

We found out this time, after two surprise boys. I had my heart set on another boy, and needed to be able to deal with it if it was a girl -

which, of course, it is. We're thrilled (it did take me a couple of days though!) biggrin.gif

Its funny isnt it? I'm Not finding out either and am having very similar reactions to you. Lots of people very put out because I dont want to find out what the sex is. I feel the same way about the pink and blue so understand where you are coming from

I'm hoping for a girl but if its a boy will be just as happy. I'm really looking forward to that moment after labour where they tell me what the sex is... I cant wait!

as for everyone finding out... I totally understand! I am DYING to know!
