Back from my appointment!

So, I'm back from my appointment. Lyla cried loudly the whole time the OB was in there with me. . . again. Hopefully, that's the last time I have to take her. Everything is great with Easter Egg! Good strong HB and all my bloodwork is perfect. Gained another 6lb :eek: Darn that appetite! BP was 118/80.

So my BIG u/s is next Tuesday 11/15 @ 9:30am!! EEEP! I'm so excited!! If we are lucky and pray hard enough, maybe DH will be able to be there!

Oh and I don't want to tell the family about when my Biggy is scheduled, so if you have any ideas of how to put them off I'd love to hear it. I was to keep them in the dark so I can surprise them after we find out. If they know when the appointment is they will hound me relentlessly to tell them.

Tell them since DH is gone so much, you've decided to let it be a surprise, that way you don't "have to worry about him missing it"???

Glad you had a good appt!!

You could tell them that they didn't have any openings until after the Thanksgiving holidays.

Glad your appt went good! And yay that you get to find out in a week!

Yea for a great appt.

So do you want the family to know you have u/s next week and when do you plan to tell the gender to them?

They'd never buy the 'we aren't finding out' bit. The no openings one might work!

I'll probably wait to tell them until a time when DH is home and we can do a get together at our house and come up with a cute way to tell everyone. Everyone is convinced it's going to be a boy, but I think it's because they want it to be a boy. We'll see if 'everyone' is right. . . next TUESDAY! Yahoo I'm so excited!

Don't even mention when you'll find out.........when you decide how you're going to do the reveal, just say........"we will be announcing the gender on _____" when/if they ask when you're finding out.

That's the same day as my U/S!! Can't wait!

I'd just say they didn't have any openings either. They won't know you aren't telling the truth.

Yay for a good appt. and getting your big u/s next week!

Totally just say they don't have an opening until after Thanksgiving or that they said they'd call in the next few weeks to set it up.

My friends and family are the same way. Won't allow ten seconds to enjoy myself, before hounding for details. Beee For most who ask, I'm telling them that I find out before Thanksgiving, and I'll post on FB when I'm ready. I keep in contact with most of my friends/family on FB, since we live almost 2 hours from most of them.

What time is yours? I love this time period, it's so exciting finding out genders and then the name talk begins!

So looks like it was a non-issue with trying to avoid telling them about the big u/s. Nobody has asked about my appointments so far, but I'll see them again Saturday. Unfortunately, both of my IL's have been having health issues so they are a bit distracted now anyway.
