I couldn't resist looking up the elective ultrasound stuff after YumPickles suggested it to OatmealKisses and it's only $60 to do it here! I'm so tempted! They can even do Saturday appointments so my husband could come without taking off work... Well sort of. Or maybe I could record it and then just get the tech to give me the gender written in an envelope!!
The one we did was the very first time we'd ever done it. I have never really thought of it as "worth the money" but I have to say, they made it a really great experience for us, our children and our friends that were with us. I do recommend it!
We did ours at an elective place on a Saturday, too, and the experience was so well worth the $$$. To have all of my boys in the room, as well as all of my family, it was priceless. Not only was finding out she was a girl together amazing, but it was a great thing for all of my family to get to see her, too. She was moving, rolling, drinking fluid, sucking her thumb...it was awesome. I say if it won't break you or be too much out of pocket for you, then to go for it!!!

I think its great if you have the extra money! We have a very high credit card bill due to vacation, a class DH is taking, and soon the baby's birth sooooo that is our #1 priority. That's why it wasn't a good idea for us. I am glad i spent the $50 on the doppler though
Thanks ladies Maybe to celebrate finishing the house my husband is closing on this month we could go? I'm feeling less anxious about everything since a crazy dream I had last night that had me in tears in a good way. I just am feeling like it really doesn't matter what I want, that this baby is exactly who is supposed to be joining our family and I will love them like crazy no matter what - even if there are health problems, it will all be okay.
I want to get one done near the end of my pregnancy for sure, but I have totally been contemplating going in the next week or so for one to see if I have twins in me and determine the sex(es). I go to the Dr Thursday and if he won't send me before the 26th I may decide to go for one sooner. We are looking to either buy or rent somewhere right now though so I don't wanna have to spend the $79 if I do not have to.
