I go back and forth but I think we'll find out as soon as we can! We're a military family and the inconsistency of where or what can happen at any time is a bit scary to me so I'd like to start planning as soon as possible. Esp. since I have a gut feeling I'm twin-ing it! lol
My husband and I are debating if we want to pay for the gender scan at 16 weeks. We really want to find out the sex as early as possible but our insurance will cover anything that is medically nessisary (which is everything except gender scan/3D) so it would be free at the 20 week scan. My husband thinks it is a girl and I don't have a clue yet. I really don't care either way (its our first and we plan on having a few so next time I might care) but I just want to know so we can go shopping for more than yellow and green things and paint the room and everything.
I haven't bought ANYTHING yet and I'm going to wait till the 16 week scan and buy my first thing in either blue or pink. I'm so excited.
It's only something like £53 which I think is good as I get to find out so early!
Also another excuse to see the baby and put my mind at rest! Why I've bought the doppler to stop me going mad between scans.
I think once I've had my 20 week abnormality one i'll chillax cos hopefully be showing!! and hopefully be feeling the little un so not thinking all the time 'are you really in there?'
Haha I have half a closet full of stuff already. We have some boy stuff and girl stuff on top of the gender neutral. (My husband buys for what ever he feels like it is at the moment). I couldn't wait to go shopping. We are trying to stop till at least the 12 week scan to buy anything else but hopefully we can hold out until we find out the sex. If my doctors office will give me a scan that they say is to check growth or something else my insurance will cover it and I would do that for sure, but its hard to pay $75 for something that could be free even though we want to know so badly.
How much was the early scan you had,I'm so nervous I think I night have one,what companies do them? Also,what's a doppler lol and is anybody going to get the baby heart monitor from boots? It works after 21 weeks abduction you can hear the heartbeat and the babies hiccups Awwww
