I can't wait till the 21st...LOL...It seems way too long and I wanted to do the 3d/4d ultrasound and they can do it at 15 wks which will be Wednesday and they have an opening at 3 on Thursday which means my hubby can do it but I have to wait on my stepmom who works at the hospital and I have no idea if she can make it.....I have to know...I really feel like I'm losing it NOT knowing. LOL

Here is what I got:

Am I the only one freaking out????

It is KILLING ME. I am 14 weeks today. I have an u/s tmw with my high risk doctor but I have no idea if they will give me an idea of what the baby is. I can't take it. I just want to freaking know already.

I was going crazy too. That's why I scheduled the ultrasound for myself on Saturday. I NEEDED to know! No regrets, either.

Patience is not a virtue of mine at all!!! I'm 16 weeks and go back to the dr next week. I tried to be sly and schedule a sono but the lady told me, M'am the dr has to be the one to schedule those....So I guess I have to wait till I see the dr and then wait until he can get me in for a sono

Is it bad I'm looking at the u/s companies now? I think we will have to go in soon. I suppose I should wait until after the u/s tmw though.

I'm the minority here. I'm excited to know, but I scheduled the u/s for later than I did with DD because I am sooooo needing to know that the baby is healthy more than the gender, so I wanted to make sure all the vital organs and bones and so forth were developed for a good picture!

I'm eager to know, and DH is too (just mentioned it yesterday) but I am not as crazy about it as I was with DD.

ETA: Jenny, do they have any other times available? I would think you would have a much greater view of things even if you wait until you are at least 16 weeks along... then both your step-mom and DH can go

I guess this is my first too so its driving me more crazy. I think if I was on #2 I wouldn't feel as crazy as I am.

I am paying extra to do the 3d/4d because its a memory I'll have forever and can pass down.

They do and if she can't make it Thursday then I'll schedule it for next week but I'm still going crazy. LOL

Yeah - I have a "basic" appt with doc on Apr 13th and then I guess we will discuss scheduling the BIG appt...

I am thinking this 1st week of May... I am definitely wanting to wait until 20 weeks or so - just to make sure everything is developed and definitely seeable...

With DD # 1 - we didn't get to have out Big U/S until 23wks because of scheduling conflicts... UGH.

I will be 15 weeks on Thursday - so I figured I can stay busy enough with full time work and 15month old to pass the time rather quickly for me... or at least I hope :-)

I has my 3d sono Sat and I was 15 WEEKS 5 DAYS and they could not tell me the sex, baby was to little, sometimes baby will spread eagle and give you a very clear shot but if its not 100% developed they cant say what it is for certain.. I have my regular gender appointment April 15th with my dr, and it seems sooooooooooooooooo far away.

It is even killing me more know bc the 3d ultrasound at first the tech said girl, then boy, then I just really dont know. He was shocked it was so hard to tell, he told me to call back and update him when I find out bc he TRIED to find out for 30 minutes!

You girls are crackin me up! The big day will come very quickly and you will know! It's amazing how soon we can find out these days.

I am of course anxious to know but I LOVE not knowing on D day! It is a big reason to push! We did not know the first 3 times and loved it. With #4 dh was so nervous mid us I decided to find out. Hearing Boy after having 3 girls was amazing however, right a way we were sad to know because we realized how awesome that birth would have been. Then last pg I did not want to know but in a split second saw the turtle.....i was so mad that I saw!

So this time around I have a problem. Kids cannot come to doc us so I want to go pay for one to include them however I am so afraid we will see what baby is. I absolutly so NOT want to know this time!

I am very glad I went. The company I went to does a "gender peek" which was only $40 and literally, she just looked for the gender, showed us the heartbeat and we got to see him for a few minutes flipping around, that was it. It was 2d but it was SO clear and nice! I'm glad I did it just for the anxiety of knowing!

I can't wait either. I have an elective gender ultrasound on April 10th and I am counting down the days. I don't care if it's a boy or a girl, I just want to shop! I got rid of everything after DS#3!

Thank you so much Alethia for my GORGEOUS siggy!!

I am 15 weeks 2 days now and my next apt is on April 9th and it is not my gender scan it's a reg apt because my Doc doesn't like to do Gender reveals until you are closer to 20 weeks but that means that my next apt will be Friday May 7th and by then i will be 21 weeks Everyone is getting to find out early. I'm a brat and i just want to know if my super strong gut feeling is right. He is in my dreams at night and on my mind all day and when i talk tomy belly it is a boy! It's just how i feel. So if it's not it's going to be a big change mentally and i need to do it asap. lol

Thank you Ameriguat for my beautiful Siggy!

I just scheduled my big u/s today. It will be on April 28th at 8am. I can't wait! I just want to start shopping and know whether I need to keep all of the boy clothes I have or if I need to start buying pink. It seems too far away but I know it will come quickly. Soon enough all of us that want to know the gender will know.
