Hey ladies...I am not sure yet, about finding out the sex of the baby. Part of me wants to know but then there is another part that wants it to be a surprise....I am sure that I will have to have a special u/s due to my age...my friend just had and she is my age, though not considered high risk age puts you there...and I heard w/ that type u/s if you don't want to know the sex don't look at the screen it is very advanced I guess...at least that is what I have been told. But they do ask if you want to know or not. I just don't know, just trying to move onto the next step w/o getting to far ahead of myself, if you know what I mean, it still does not seem real! I think by the time I feel movement or see a big belly I won't believe it. But thank you ladies for thinking of me. I am hoping to hear some more good news this weekend.

Allison, do what I did. I got on the scale backwards. I never looked at the number. I only asked the nurse how much I gained or lost that week. Hearing that you gained 2 lbs is a hell of alot better than seeing the scale indicating that you weigh 4000 lbs
 
.

Even though a level II u/s is more advanced than the regular u/s, you can't always tell gender. Also lots of times, the baby's legs are in the way. I would never have been able to tell that Arianna was a girl. With a boy, it's easier if you can see something protruding but you can't always tell what you're looking at. I found the level IIs amazing. One day the tech said no cleft palate, no club foot. I wasn't even thinking about those things. They can see everything. They measure the kidneys, see how much urine is in there etc. You don't have to demand to see your child instantly after birth because you've already counted their fingers and toes long before they are born.

Thanks for asking about Arianna and Spencer. I've decided to add their stats to my signature so look below. As you can tell, Spencer eats and eats and eats.

Thanks Glinda I think I will do that, I don't want to know what I even weigh at this point...my clothes don't fit and not really ready for maternity so I guess I will go stretchy and bigger! yikes. That is sooo cool, I heard they can tell all of that stuff w/ that u/s man technology. Wow the kids are growing, Spencer is typical boy huh? hehe and Arianna is going to petite and danty....that is soo cool. I would have loved to have a boy and a girl like that, but I am just very happy and thankful to be prego w/ one, who I hope remains healthy. It is exciting. Well you have a great weekend w/ your beautiful babies. Talk to you soon.
Allison

Right until the night before the scan, I was determined to know what it was, having known everything else in such detail....then I started having doubts. Baby crossed it's legs on us on the day anyway, and I didn't get another scan until 31wks to check it's size, by which time we'd decided to keep waiting it out. I've liked having something kept back as a surprise after everything else had to be demystified tbh.
I just hope and pray that everyone here gets a chance to make that decision and see that scan for themselves soon
