Girl or Boy?

May 22, 2008

Girl or Boy? This is the question of the moment.

When we first found out I was pregnant, we briefly discussed deciding whether or not we wanted to find out the sex of the baby before he or she was born or wait for a surprise.

My first reaction was that I wanted it to be a surprise, but after mulling over it some more, I’ve decided that I really want to know. Besides, Kevin wanted to know, as well as the rest of our families, and if they knew, it was only going to be a matter of time before they let something slip. ;-)

Since my prenatal care is with a birthing center, they don’t provide high tech ultrasounds, so they refer you to a nearby perinatal specialist to make an appointment. All they require is that I be at least 18 weeks. I will be 18 weeks at the end of this month.

So, yesterday, I made an appointment to find out the sex of our baby. Now, the countdown begins to June 5th!

We wanted to know the gender both times — wanted to choose names, buy some baby clothes, etc. Well, I did anyway. I’m excited for you! And I love the pic. :)

We were suprised with little H but I think for the next one I’ll want to find out. All the green stuff we bought never got used one she was here…it was pink all the way! Best of luck to you – I hope baby behaves so you get a clear answer!!

I made Doc Doe check on Eve about a zillion times before she arrived. I just wanted to make sure she was Eve and not Adam.

Adam, I could read that ultrasound myownself.

Appartently it depends a lot on your diet if you have a really varied one you have more chance of having a boy (only by about 7%).

It’s worth knowing so at the baby shower the gifts are useful!

It is so great to carry a baby. My sincere congrats and warm wishes to you. When I was pregnant I was made an ultrasound several times but till the very birth noone could 100% say if it is a girl or a boy, she started hiding all the signs of gender when realized we were looking at her inside me:)

Very exciting! Personally I’m all for being surprised, but my fiance says he wants to know ahead of time. I guess there’s lots of time for us to discuss this as we’re not going to be trying to get pregnant for at least a year.
