My name is Erica, I'm 21 weeks and 1 day pregnant with mine and my fiancé's first child. So excited! My doctor wanted to wait till I'm 24 weeks to tell me the gender and I'm going crazy. Any advice on how to keep my mind off of it?

Congrats and welcome! I am Karine, I turn 30 in a few weeks. My DH and I have 3 girls Khloe (5 next month), Keira (4 in Feb.) and Kaylee (2 in March) with our first boy Kaleb due 5/10. As for waiting it is so hard, with my first I swore I wouldn't find out, but ended up caving. Best I can say is do everything to distract yourself or to pay for a scan at a place

You could try focusing on names - DH and I were team green until we couldn't hold our excitement from our last ultrasound Friday. We would talk about names and other things about what we want to do after the baby's born. Good luck!

Hi Erica! I am a newbie too! I am 20 weeks and like many of the other women, I could not wait either. We wanted to find out on Christmas morning, so I went to a 3d ultrasound place and had the gender sealed in a card. I have not been yet for my anatomy scan at my dr either. For me, the way my appts fell, I will not be finding out "officially" from my dr until 23 weeks.

I wrote my doc to give me a 16 week ultrasound to check up on the baby. But I really wanted to know the sex. I'm not patient. But It's not that far away for you. Just call your doc and ask to move it up. No harm in asking.
