It's Official, I'm in trouble ...

As some of you may know, and the rest of you may not, my wife is pregnant with our first child. We are expecting a late October, early November birthday ...

Christy, my wife, and I went to her 20 week check up yesterday. It seems as though she is having a text-book pregnancy and the Dr. even used the "routine" word a few times. Knowing that both my wife and our child are doing well has put my mind at ease, at least for now, until such time that I can somehow create yet another ungodly situation in my overactive mind to freak myself out again.

So, you ask why I named this thread like I did. It's a legit question and I am going to tell you. We found out the gender of the child during the ultrasound. The ultrasound technician said that she got, "three good peaks and I didn't change my mind." We also know that she has 30+ years of reading ultrasounds and ins't some "newbie" to it. She couldn't tell us that she was 100% positive (they aren't doctors or experts and they aren't in a position to say without a doubt) but her wording about "three good peaks" makes me feel that she is confident about her decision ...

IT'S A GIRL!!!

Now, do you understand why I am in trouble ...

Re: It's Official, I'm in trouble ...

Congrats! I'm new here but I just had to read!
My husband and I are having a boy any day now - You two are just getting to the fun parts!
I loved being 7 months pregnant. Nesting like crazy but I was comfortable and the baby was very active. Very Fun!
Boy or girl, just be (and I know you are) so greatful for a healthy pregnancy. This is my second pregnancy but first baby. This pregnancy has been very healthy and it's been such a blessing.
Love and live it up - every ounce of her pregnancy<3
PS~ After my 8th month, I loved having my belly rubbed - sounds weird but with as stretched out as it gets, it feels real good. Your wife may enjoy it too... wink wink!

Re: It's Official, I'm in trouble ...

YAY GIRL!!!!!!! You better get saving for clothes etc. Well actually guys also are into the brand name stuff too... but especially girls!!!! lol I reccomend you make a separate bank account strictly for clothes and you can add a little to it each month similar to education or retirement fund/account thing. And before you say not all girls are into clothes, i was a total tomboy in like early ish primary elementary school and now in highschool its like every weekend i must go to the mall! lol. But anyway congrats on the baby girl!!!!!! I think you'll be happy to hear that all the girls i've babysat before are alot more stubborn than any of the guys i've ever babysat. Just thought i'd point that out.....
Oh btw it's the guy who decides what gender it is and it's often based on his like family etc. Like if you have like 20 sisters and like 1 brother then chnaces are your going to have all girls, so like ya if you look at your dad's family and your family then you can often make a pretty geuss at what the gender is. Unless like there was one girl and one boy or something but then you look at your dad's family and like up the family tree. Ok you have to tell what names your thinking of or Christy is thinking of(Christy jr? jk.... btw this if off topic but i hate it when people name their kids their name it's like they have no creativity and too lazy to think of a new name its ok as a middle name but as a first name... blah). Anyway looking forward to October/November OH! Maybe she'll be a halloween baby.

Or I hear tea leaves and astrology work pretty well too. Then there's tarot cards, dice rolling, coin flipping, or just asking the kid who bags your groceries cause his random guess should be pretty accurate to.

In fact I bet any one of the above could get you the right answer 50% of the time.

HAHA.
I agree though, the chances of having a boy/girl is not anything you can inherit... it's a 50/50 chance... X or Y. So go ahead and flip some coins - count your money!... while you study your family tree and see the male:female ratio for no reason to look like you made a scientifically correct guess!
