    Default nt scan and kids know

    nt scan was great! Results of the scan portion are really good...and they think maybe we are having a GIRL!! She said she would not say for SURE until 18 weeks, but she was pretty sure. The tech was supposed to get a good cervix measurement...and apparantly...she screwed that up. My doc looked at it, and said it was literally IMPOSSIBLE...the measurement she had down for me. This of course...leads me to be concerned for the competency of the tech and the accuracy of anything else she saw/measured. Anyways...Im just going to go with it, assume she just messed up 1measurment and everything else is great!!
    My 13 yr old came home today and said to me flat out, "are you pregnant" Well....I just couldnt lie. I didnt really want to tell them that way...but it was out. My son was a little upset. My daughter was a little upset...but the younger kids were all happy. Just my 12 and 13 year olds are concerned about money, time, etc etc...they are old enought to kind of understand lots of kids is a LOT of work. I hope they will come around. Im pretty sure they will!! Anyways...Im super excited, and while Im not going to go buy pink...the thougth of another baby girl sounds great!! If it turns out to be a boy...that will be great too...but Im just excited baby seems fine !!! So far!

    I'm glad everything looked good. Sorry the tech screwed up a measurement and your older kids weren't as excited as you hoped.

    Woohoo for NT scans! So exciting that you may be having a girl too...

    I'm sure your other kids will come around soon enough - you can't help but get swept up in the excitement of a new baby!

    Glad all looked well, and if the tech messed up, maybe another u/s? Hope the teenagers come around.

    Congrats on a great scan!!! I am so happy for you!! Please don't let the teens' comments get to you, they will love their little brother or sister. Oh, Nick looked like a girl at 15 and 17 weeks- I was sure he was a girl! Then at 21 weeks he was all boy! So, not buying pink might be a good move.
    Also I wanted to comment on your "belly" pic- Girrrrl, you look awesome!!!

    Your son looked like a girl still at 17 weeks???? Ok...Im REALLY not buying pink!! lol!!! I was wondering if I should ask them for a repeat scan to recheck that cervix length...when you have an incompetent cervix, you would think it would be important to get that right....I cant decide if it would be to nervy to call and tell them I wanted another one.

    Yeah, on the 17 week one we got a somewhat obstructed view of the goods and both the tech and I thought it was a girl ( we saw "the line").
