We’ll probably only tell grandparents the sex, I cannot handle the comments either way. They were bad enough with my third.
    I know it’s exactly the same here! I think it’s a cute idea to do something for the kids do they know about baby yet?( re reading your post seems they know since they asked! So cute of them to ask )
    My eldest is like yours, she reaaaaally wants a brother so if it’s a girl she’ll be quite sad. But then, I guess she will be disappointed at any point if it’s another sister so I thought revealing the pregnancy and gender to them at the same time would be best because she definitely will be excited about the idea of a new baby ...hopefully!
    I will keep it simple, #3 will wear a “ big sister” T-shirt and will ask her to show her sisters - my eldest can read so she can announce to her sisters that way not sure how to integrate gender reveal part yet lol
    I feel you, I got soooo many hurtful comments with #3 especially, if nearly broke me...I think we’re going to keep gender quiet bar to the few people Inknow will be genuinely excited for baby either way

    They do know, they’re so excited! Looking at your signature I noticed our kids are all similar spacing- my oldest is 10/13, middle is 2/16, and youngest is 7/18
    That’s such a cute way to tell your older girls, I bet they’ll be thrilled!

    Hello ladies. Hope you're all feeling good.
    @LMSM and Greydore it's so cute you want to reveal gender to your kids in a special way. Really sweet. I don't really know what I would do. Still have to think about it.
    Early today I had a little blood in the bathroom. Luckily I had an appointment with the doctor today anyway. I saw the baby on the ultrasound and it had a heartbeat and was the "right" size. I was a little released and the doctor doesn't seem to be concerned at all. But I am so so worried. I never had a bleeding in any of my successful pregnancies only when I miscarried. Did any of you ladies experience this and it was still alright in the end?

    Iím so sorry for your scare. Iíve had bleeding in my healthy pregnancies and my miscarriages. Itís actually quite common. Just keep at eye on it. If baby looks great, then thatís a really great sign.

    As for me, we have decided not to go team green anymore. Itís due to a few reasons. One being one of my children has a very strong preference. He is my youngest son (age 10) and already has 3 little sisters, and is praying for a little brother. So if itís a girl Iíd like him to get use to the idea.

    We have a scan booked in exactly a week and then we have a double gender reveal planned for the kids. Double because, I want a cake, and DH wants something that explodes, so we are doing both Yes the cake is going to be redundant, but delicious!! So I ordered 100 black water balloons, and we are going to fill most of them with water, and only one with blue or pink paint. Then we are going to let the kids throw them at a board, until eventually the coloured one pops!! Hopefully it all goes to plan.

    Doctor put me on aspirin to help with high blood pressure (my blood pressure it good right now but itís something Iíve always had to be induced for) and hopefully I wonít have to be induced this time. We finally have a boy name picked out and a girl name. Only one more week to see which one we will be using!!

    Due January 28th

    I’m sorry for your scare as well! With DD, I had multiple bleeds and my doctor assured me that as long as it wasn’t heavy it was completely normal and plenty of women just spot, without cause or harm. Just part of their “normal pregnancy” changes down there

    @ mommymachine and pretty
    Thank you so much, I actually feel better and a little bit relieved. I always read it happens to so many women and then it still turns out fine, I just did not have it before. And I think that's just scaring me. But I will try to relax a bit hope for the best.
    And @mommymachine your idea for gender reveal is so sweet! Omg! And I totally get it to prepare your son. I think that's why I can't be team green this time. My girl is a bit hoping for a sister (although she sometimes says she wants another brother to be our only girl lol) but I also think it will be better to give her the time to adjust.
    Hope you're all feeling good.

    [mention]Lailanela [/mention] I understand that bleeding can be common in pregnancy- since the doctor is saying everything is looking good That is a good sign! Itís hard not to worry about everything.

    I hope everyoneís gender reveals are lots of fun- some great ideas! Especially fun for the older siblings.

    Re the hurtful comments- people really do talk without thinking sometimes. All thatís needed when someone announces a pregnancy or birth is ďCongratulations!Ē
