Gtky question...

Ok...

Who wants singletons?

Who wants multiples?

Which gender/s (assuming, healthy and happy is covered)?

I'd like a single baby - no preference on gender! I'm afraid I'm having multiples - but I find out today at my first u/s! Smile

Definitely just want a singleton and we only saw one on the u/s two weeks ago. I have 2 DS's so I would like a girl this time but I won't be hung up on it if I get another son. Smile

Good luck today Mel! I'll be watching for your update. Fingers crossed for just one. Wink

would like a single, but am fearing multiples. Actually, I wouldn't mind twins, but it just doesn't work out for us financially. I would have to quit work if we did and DH doesn't make enough for me to be SAHM, but we will cross that bridge if we need to.

I am hoping for a girl, but if we don't have a girl, then we might be going for a family of five in a few years Wink

Singleton, and I'm sure it is! I used to think I wanted twins but not so much anymore. Everyone is talking about how they hope I have a girl and it's kind of annoying. Like I"m afraid I will disappoint everyone if it's a boy. For that reason I guess I hope it's a girl, so there's not a ton more pressure with #3 (the last). But I wouldn't mind if it was another boy. Boys are so much fun!

It would be hard but I would be ok with twins, but I don't think it is twins. DS wants a sister, DH wants a boy (because girls scare him), I would like a girl but would be ok if this is a boy because I know DH wants to go for more.

Singleton please! Before having DD I thought twins would be 'fun'. Now that I've had one...I know that twins would be INSANE!!! We did only see one on our 7w u/s, so hopefully it stays that way.

As for sex, I'm fine either way. I always wanted 1 girl and I have her. Whatever we have next is fine by me. Another girl would be fun because it would save us LOTS of money and I always wanted a sister, so I'd get to watch my girls grow up together. A boy would be good too as it would be a new experience for both DH and I. DH has a daughter from a previous relationship and was also 'dad' to her older half sister (not DH's bio child). So DH has been through 3 girls now. I'm sure a boy would be new and fun for both of us.

So ya, because I'm happy with either, we aren't going to find out the sex until birth!

I know twins run in the family and would be happy with either single or multiples. My in laws only want a singleton. DH wants a boy but we will be happy with whatever we get Smile We will be having plenty more to try for a boy Smile

I would love one baby girl this time Smile

When I was preg with my last we were worried it was multiples because my belly got so big so fast. If I had twins this time, 18 months after having my last one.......I'd DIE. I'd have no idea how to cope.

So hoping for just ONE, and praying for PINK this time Smile since I'd love another girl after my 2 crazy boys.

Well we know we are only having one, I would have been fine with twins. We would personally love to have another boy, but a girl will be perfectly fine too! I have always wanted only boys, I didn't know what what I was going to do with a girl when I had DD!

I just want ONE at a time. Two reasons, one being that I have a close friend with twin boys and holy smokes are they a handful. Having two in the same stage all the time is tough. Second, I'm a pretty small girl (5'3 and ~113 lbs normally) so I'm afraid of what growing two would do to my body! That one is totally selfish but true. I've survived my first 2 pregnancies mostly unscathed aside from stretch marks on my butt and under my boobs where no one ever sees them and my stomach has gone back to almost normal.

AFA gender...we have a girl and a boy already so we are really up in the air about what we'd "prefer" this one to be. There are definite pros to each so really it doesn't matter. I'd love another girl purely so I could reuse DD's adorable clothes again but it would also be nice for DS to have a brother close in age since there are no boy cousins and probably won't be for 5+ years.

I'd love twin girls... This is our last pregnancy (assuming all goes well). We have two sweet as pie loving boys but I know my dh would love a girl (he's always wanted one).

It always floors me when I hear that people want ONLY boys. For me, I always wanted at least one girl, so when I see people with 4 boys, I feel sad for them. I know that it's not necessarily true that they even wanted a girl...but for me, I'd be very sad if I had 4 boys and no girl. LOL. I just need to remember that not everyone cares for girls as much as me!

Part of me feels like I'm meant to be a mom to girls and that this is another girl...which I'm totally fine with. Like Ashley said, I'd LOVE to be able to re-use all of DD's super cute clothes and it would be better for bedroom sharing (which they will be doing at some point).

The tech that did my first u/s said, "wow I don't get too many moms in her that want all boys!"

My BIL and SIL had 3 boys and she got her tubes tied. She was so bound and determined to have a girl they are now adopting one. That just blows my mind!

I might have considered that had I not got lucky the first time. Smile

See, I had no idea what to do with my boys. I STILL have no idea how I am going to handle being a mother to boys as they grow older! I was so used to having younger sisters and being a second mother to them that I am really much better at the girl stuff. I'm afraid I'll have another boy though....seems like everyone I know has ONE of one gender and then the rest are all the other gender! I'd love to have 2 of each though Smile

As of my last ultrasound at 6 weeks 1 day (according to them.. my charting says diff) I am only having one... which I am fine wiht. as a twin myself... I do not want twins. (though my cousin did want them) I would prefer a girl.. mainly bc I grew up being the ONLY girl in the family on my dad's side. all of my cousins are boys. Then 2 of them (out of 3) had 1 girl. (one had a set of boy girl twins....and that's all they have) so of the 6 grandchildren on that side Im the only girl...and of the great grandchildren there are 4 boys 2 girls.) DH's family is full of boys too... So I'd LOVE a girl. but would be happy with whichever
