    GIRL!

    Yup, we're going to have 3 girls! And we help prove that the shettles method doesn't always work! We were NOT using the shettles method, but I know the idea behind it, and looking at my chart after the fact we couldn't have timed it any better for a boy even if we had been trying.

    Everything looks good, I really liked the ultrasound place and I love the DVD we got. I'm glad we did that. I still hadn't decided if I wanted to find out until the very end of the ultrasound. But she would switch to the 3/d periodically, and as much as she tried not to show us the goods, the baby seemed intent on moving around so we kept seeing that area. And sometimes I would think I saw boy parts, and I decided we better just find out. I didn't want to be convinced I was having a boy based on glimpses, and then be shocked at the end with a girl.

    And I'm glad we did find out. I didn't really think I had a gender preference, but as soon as she put "It's a girl" up on the screen I knew I had been hoping for a boy. I am such a horrible person. It's not that I'm disappointed to be having another girl, I love my girls and having 3 will be amazing. But I am mourning the fact that we won't have a son.

    So I am 0/3 on gender guesses. Each time I was convinced I was having a boy, and we'll have 3 girls. And I am also proof that you can carry different, crave different things, and have completely different pregnancy symptoms and still have all of 1 gender!

    Yay!!! Girls are awesome! (As you well know!) I'm sorry that you are mourning that you won't have a boy, but I do understand. I wanted a boy first and when we found out it was a girl a part of me did feel a little sad and DH had to go through a 'mourning' process, but the second we met her she was exactly what we wanted. I am very blessed to have one of each gender, but had it been 2 of one or the other, I think it would be just as amazing, just in a different way. I think 3 girls sounds like loads of fun! I know you aren't 'sorry' that you are having another girl, but I think it's natural for most people to kind of want to experience having both boys and girls.

    Anyway, enough rambling from me. Congrats on your girl! You make beautiful girls, so it's a good thing you are making another one!

    Yay to another little lady!

    It is still very exciting to have 3 of one gender.

    Awww, yay, another girl! I am slightly jealous, I love my boys of course but I would LOVE to have a house full of little girls. Of course I do have a 14 year old girl and man oh man a house full of teenage girls sounds like a nightmare I think it's so cool that you have the DVD of the u/s!

    Yay for another girl!!! I totally get where you're coming from. Before DH and I decided that we were sticking with 2, I had always wanted one girl and one boy with the opportunity to try a third time if #1 and #2 were the same sex. So, clearly I want to be able to experience mothering children of both sexes. I still do but I've been spending a lot of time concocted reasons why having two girls would be AWESOME so that I don't feel like I have a preference that Sprog be a boy. I think I've actually done such a good job of convincing myself that another girl would be great that I now kinda have a preference for another girl. Mostly, I'm afraid of dealing with a tiny little baby penis. I'm mean, it like sprays and ****. Good thing you won't have to deal with all that

    Anyway, I'm so glad baby girl looks perfect and healthy and I think you made the right decision. I saw what I thought were boy parts during T's U/S and I would have been convinced I was having a boy if I hadn't had the tech tell us. That would have left me in shock at the birth and then having to mourn the "loss" of my boy when I should have been celebrating the birth of my girl.

    Congratulations! !! I really do know how you feel (pretty much ditto Erin) and now I am extra glad you found out because that was a big part of why I wanted to know, no question --so that I could get any expectation based emotions out of the way early and be ready to embrace whoever came out by birth time, either way. I really really wanted and expected a girl, and of course if it had been a boy I would have loved and enjoyed him every tiny bit as much, but I would definitely have needed a little time to adjust.

    You are going to have the best little pack of sisters ever. Congratulations again!!!

    Thank you! I happen to be biased, but I also totally agree with you

    I know! And my girls are so sweet together, I can barely imagine what it will be like with 3 of them. I just about die from cuteness overload.

    lalala! I'm not listening! My girls are going to skip being obnoxious teenagers. Ugh. When DD3 is 13, we will also have a 15yo and an 18yo. So we can cover the whole teenage spectrum. Wow, we so did not plan that well.
