Hi again

I just wanted to to those who are pregnant with twins that there is an Expecting Multiples group which can be found here if anyone is interested.

It may help with some of the specific questions you may have. You are free to post and chat in both groups and make twice as many new friends.

Kind regards

Hi Everyone!

Well after a long 3 week wait (the Gp had the results for a week and didn't call me!!!) i got my panorama test results and had my nuchal scan today. Ive had some bleeding over the past 24hours so i was quiet worried but all seems to be ok with bubs and i came back low risk for everything.

We also found out the sex! We are having a BOY! This is boy number Three so i am in quiet a bit of shock despite really  having prepped myself for the chance it would be another boy.

I did have a big big girlie cry in the car, I'm pretty devastated that ill never experience the mother daughter relationship i enjoy so much with my mum but after the bleeding scare i am really just so relieved he is ok. Im now trying to decide do we tell ppl we know the sex or not?
Im thinking not. I don't want the constant comments of "i bet you wanted a girl" rubbish.
I look at my little boys and how much they love each other and how they love their mum, who could ask for anything else.

Its funny how life works, we just bought 40acres in the country and are thinking about making abit of a change....Three boys in the mix might just make that decision for us! We are going to need all the space we can get (and a second bathroom!!!!)

I hope everyone is doing well.
