Just out of interest, what flavour cake is it? I am really craving cake at the moment

Yes! I am very excited! The scan is at 08:30 UK time 1 more sleep! I feel like it's pink but then I'm not sure if I've gone team pink because I know that some of the family would love a boy and so I've leant towards pink because of that and the number of gender predictions I've done seem to point towards pink. In truth I think I literally have no idea! It's the first grandchild on both sides so I am lucky I don't feel too much pressure either way really, they are just all over the moon that they are getting a grandchild!

Hello ladies , it has been long, life has been hectic at the office and the second trimester 'blooming' hasnt kicked in as I am super tired.
Good to know evetyone is doing well and for those who are not doing so well, hope u get better soon!

Well the wait is over for me finally over for me. Just had the 20 week scan and all is well and the 'lil poser' as the lady who did the scan called her is really doing well. baby was moving all the time and we managed to get a wave and see he sucking her thumb. no anomalies detected. and due date moved to 11th of feb.

Gender....mmmm it was a difficult one the first impression was 'looks like you are having a girl' and then the after a few checks 'oh hang on am not so sure now it may be a boy' and then she had to check the chambers of the babies heart bcoz she said she could only see 3 and they should be 4.Was instructed to go and empty my bladder and jump up and down for 2 minutes ....apparently that makes the baby change position!

Came back and the baby was in a different position and all we could see were the shadows od the spinal cord.The lady was more interested in the 4th valve of the heart and silly me was more interested in the gender.In the end she said 'as I am not so sure now let me check for any 'boy bits' and in the end she said she didnt see any boy bits and said 'I hope I am not wrong but I think its a girl and that is what she typed on her records ..........................so yes Its team Pink!

Congrats kim! And did she find her last heart chamber?

oh Jo, make sure to come on and tell us ASAP tomorrow! I am voting team blue for you. 8.30 is a great time - no hanging about all day trying not to obsess! Mine is 9am next eek, am happy with that.

It was just a sponge cake, with a big fat layer of jam.
Half demolished by me and my boys now.

Oh just to add, going back to me ( how self obsessed!?) DH was super nice about it all this morning, was literally hi hugging one side and 4 year old on the other side. Love my boys. Pity they have a hormonal loon in the family right now!

Good Morning Ladies!

I am at work, but not very functional. We have our scan at 1330 EST today so I've got 5.5 hours to go. I'll be leaving work in 4 due to the lovely traffic here in Atlanta.

I am really hoping for team pink. This will be my mom's first grandbaby, my dad's 7th and my in-law's 20-something-th (this is what happens when you marry a guy with 5 siblings that all started really young...).

Both my sisters and all my husband's siblings had boys first. I'd like to be different have a girl first. I am, however, beginning to become tired of his family asking me when we are going to have our second one. Could I please just have this baby first? As an only child I'm not opposed to stopping after just one.

Nice that your DH came round.

All the best for your scan Kellen.....I know the feeling, I had to go to work before the scan and I think my productivity was actually negative!

Ha ha family should atleast let you get through and enjoy the first one before they start asking!!!

Kim, thanks. Yep, DH is the last one to get hitched and have a baby. He took his time with it though. We are the first couple not to be pregnant A) before the wedding, B) during the wedding or C) immediately following the wedding. We waited two years because we wanted time for ourselves. Now we feel secure in our jobs, our marriage and life in general.

I think time is moving backwards today. I swear it was 8:40 a minute ago and now it is 8:35... When I'm excited I tend to zoom through my work and be more efficient. So efficient that I finished this weeks projects yesterday. I guess I could always head down to the basement and start on the give-aways for the conference next week...

Hello ladies!

Helena--I'm glad things are looking better, but I would have been soooo angry about the bikini lady---even if it's an accident!

Congrats Kim! How exciting!!!

Jo and Kellen---let us know as soon as you can!! I'm just overjoyed hearing everyone's genders! I've got 6 days to find out ours.

As for the sister-thing, DH and I had a long talk last night---and both of our hearts were telling us that even though it will be hard and uncomfortable, we want to help out my sister and her family. So we told her last night that they can live with us. She was SO relieved (she's been really stressed about it all). She said they are still going to look for other places to live, but it's great to know we'll be there for them if they can't find anything. I feel better about it, though DH and I both have apprehension about their 3 cats and a ferret moving in with us, too. We feel our cat might have a mini-heartattack over the competition she'll now face in the family since she wouldn't be queen of the house anymore. . . lol. . .but she'll have to get used to that with the baby anyways. I told my sister we'll discuss details later, but DH and I are going to ask them to be out by January 10th. That'll give us a month (hopefully) to get settled before the wee one makes an appearance.

So. . .feeling much better. DH tried so hard last night to feel lo, but still couldn't. It was kicking away in there, but DH couldn't feel it at all---he even put his head on my belly to see if he could hear it! Nothing yet. . . I hope soon. He so badly wants to feel what I feel.
