I had my gender scan with my first at 18 weeks and they only gave me a 60% accuracy then, not trying to discourage at all, just saying to be prepared that it might take a while to know for sure! But then again maybe she was just cautious about it.
That's a bummer to hear! I have my gender scan at 18 weeks but mine will be with a 4D sono. This is my first pregnancy so I would assume those have a bit better of a chance to determine????
I think it all depends on the baby and the sonographer really. A 4D should be more detailed and easier to see I would think, but I really don't know. That was just my experience! I know there are lots of ladies that have found out earlier.
Nice, it's great to meet another Missourian (er, original Missourian, hehe). And the weather is great down here, the weather was absolutely gorgeous today. I'm sure that people are finding morel mushrooms already.
I've got a feeling in my gut that says that this pumpkin is a girl (so does my mother) but we'll see when I have my ultrasound on May 6th. I think that DF is secretly hoping for a boy, but he's been saying that he doesn't know or have any feelings on the matter either way. It's probably a defense mechanism for just in case so that he doesn't experience gender disappointment, especially since I have a strong feeling that it's a girl.
I love this thread! I'm Lindsey and I'm from southern Wisconsin.
We have our beautiful daughter, Finley who is 15 months, and #2 on the way in September.
Hi minnesota here.
Im in a similar boat with you. I have a 14 month old and expecting in sept as well.
Very terrified to have 2 under 2!
Awww, its definitely scary at first have 2 under 2. My daughter was 15 months when our son came, and I was a bundle of nerves, I begged dh not to go back to work and leave me alone. BUT, I can tell you after about a week alone with them, it doesn't feel so scary anymore. You adjust quickly, and it is far scarier going from 1 to 2 than anything (at least I think it is). Once you've done it, you feel like "I got this. I'm mom I can do anything they throw at me!" I haven't felt that fear at all with #3 coming. Good luck ladies! You'll do great! Just make a special timw for Mama and the older child to have special time together where its JUST her and Mama, no babies allowed. It definitely helps avoid the jealousy. At that age they don't "get" babies, they just see they're being replaced. If dad runs to the store, baby has to stay home amd big sis gets to go all by herself. Its little things that help let them know they're still super special!
I see Liz0012 hasn't made it here yet. I will send her a PM and again and tell her about the thread. I hope all of you are well. I am really enjoying the nice weather we have all all weekend and so far this week. DH birthday is Thursday and they are sayin snow for MN and IA so that bites but what do you do? LOL ANyways, I just wanted to say hello.
