I had my 20 week scan yesterday - and it's a little girl! ppinkstork.gif

I'm so ecstatic! I honestly thought it was going to be a boy given how many boys are in DH's family.. but we're so happy to be having a DD!

Just wanted to share my happy news! ddance.gif

I still have a way to go till my 20 week scan. I already have 2 boys, and i cant even imagine being told im having a girl. Im just assuming boy, because its what im used to lol. I'd be thrilled with another boy, but still have a tiny hope for pink  wink.gif

Congrats Koobie83 original.gif  ddance.gif eexcite.gif  

I had my scan a couple of weeks ago and didn't find out the gender. Jealous of those who know though (but I'm jealous of those who don't too, what a predicament!)

HEARTMYBOYS; I'm just wondering when your due date is.

My scan is next friday and \i can't wait to find out what I''m having so I can go through my baby clothes and get rid of all the opposite sex ones as this is no4 for me and my last.

@Sophie Beagle - Thanks! I know... I don't think I could stand the suspense of not knowing. Luckily my girl was giving the sonographer lots of hints through the scan and then when she could zoom in it was clear.
