  1. New to sight looking for advice:)

    Hello ladies

    I am new here and looking for any help I can get! I have two boys 4 and 2 and my hubby and I are going to be trying for our third and last in late summer/ fall! We are really wanting to sway for a girl:) no one understands how much I long for a girl! My hubby says we have a 50/50 chance! I would love a boy or girl but I know I would always feel a void if I don't have a girl of my own:( where do I start I've been looking and there is so much to look at? For those of you ...
  2. My news is out!

    I did it. I told everyone I'm pregnant and that she's my long awaited DD! It took some serious bravery to do it, since I have friends with all boys who I was afraid of hurting and others I was afraid might feel betrayed for not having been told before now, but it's done now.... and I had some real surprises.

    My friend who is pregnant with her DS2 was surprisingly happy for me and congratulatory. She gushed to me about how happy I must be and we got to share about our pregnancies. ...
  3. Survivor's guilt

    I feel bad. I have a friend's baby shower this Sunday. She's having DS2 and was devastated because they're stopping at 2 and her daughter dream is over.

Nope, I had an extensive ultrasound, a 30 minute chat with the genetic counselor, and then the most horrific blood draw of my life.

    I am a fainter. I hate needles, and I absolutely have to look away when my blood's being taken. I usually have to lie down, but I was okay the last time, so I thought maybe I'd be okay ...
  5. Ultrasound done, new levels of panic have set in.

    I just came back from my ultrasound appointment. It took forever, and they took 7 vials of blood for testing, but not my Panorama yet. That's happening Monday.

    Soooo, there's only one in there. That's good, since I was worried about the possibility of twins. There's a heartbeat and everything looks good.

    That's the end of the good news. That was the worst quality ultrasound I've ever had and it just looked like a blob. I've gained 7 lbs since my BFP, which has ...
