Dobby, that's wonderful!!! Congratulations on the boy! I know you were excited for a boy so you must be over the moon. And yes, it's pretty hard to mistake a boy for anything else. I've heard a few stories of girls turning out to be boys later, though it's rare, but it seems much more uncommon to be the other way around.
I see more than me thats expecting a girl is unsure and doesnt want to take it for granted. I was so going to believe the doctor at first, I thought she would have been willing to put anything in the envelpe if she hadn seen it was a girl. But then I think about the " I wont swear by it" and then think almost all of my friends who were told they were expecting a girl were told similar thing. SO I am so unsure, and litle bit anxius about it cause my inlaws are now in Tenerife and bought some cloths and also this woman on a twin fb group was giving away cloths she used for her twin girls and she gave it to me
Now I am thinking... maby one is a boy.. maby both.. gahh! what will I do with the girly cloths!?
Also I dont seem to get myself to talk about the twins as the girls. I always just sey they.. here in iceland we have words that are for girls, for boys and.. well.. it I think explains it. It is a word for something that aint either girl or boy. And our girl words arent always the same as the girl words in other language.
So a girl is a "Hún" two or more are "şær"
A boy is a "Hann" two or more are "şeir"
And.. a it? is a "Şağ" and two or more (even if it is girl and a boy) it is "şau"
So babies the word barn (one) börn (two or more) is an şağ or şau.
And i just say şau.. the word twins is a male word so I sometimes use şeir (them twins)
I will get another scan in like 8 weeks or so! Around april 10th. Feels sooo sooo far away to confirm the genders!
Our anatomy scan is getting closer.. March 2. My husband and I decided to do something a bit... Fun for our reveal. We are having a piñata at our reveal and decided we are going to fill it with white candy. So everyone will take the time to find it what it is and then it'll all be white. Then we are going to have the local bakery make us cupcakes with the icing color inside and will have those in my husband's trunk of his car. Well go grab those after the "disappointing piñata" and that's how our family will find out.. I'm sure my mother in law is going to want to strangle me lol..
I just got back from the 2nd scan. They booked me for a fetal echocardiogram at the hospital. It looks like there might be some sort of septal defect but she still wasn't in the best of positions so I will have to wait a week for the results as the images will be sent to a pediatric cardiologist. I think the risk of Down's syndrome just went way up because there are also two soft markers.
Oh weebles, I'm sorry. That must be hard to wait an extra week to know more. I hope for the best possible outcome for you and your little one. I hope you have some good support from medical professionals who can help you learn more about what this might mean. I've heard that can make a big difference when learning about possible heart issues or soft markers, etc. I'll be thinking about you!
Congratulations on being team blue Dobs! So so happy for you! Can't wait to hear how your family take it at your reveal!
Marie,your bump looks adorable!
Weebles,I'm sorry you have to wait even longer now for some assurances. I hope they can figure out what's what so you know what's going on...
AFM,I finally have a bump showing and paranoia has totally kicked in. Sone days it's all about baba and if he is ok etc since I haven't felt movement at all yet, but today it's all about DH safety. Can't shake the fear that something is going to happen to him and it's got me in tears...thanks hormones!
Awe so sorry I havu to wait longer for results weeks. If it makes u feel any better I went for my level 2 ultrasound on the 14th to find out that they lady never put my appt in the system so had to reschedule for a week later to even get the ultrasound so now I go on the 21st. I was so mad I was crying.
