    In ultrasound when we can find out in doctor office is it possible before 5th month?

    Hi nishi! Happy to see you in here too! I have read on these boards that the sneak peek urine test is NOT reliable! Personally if you could I would wait. I believe they do a blood test as well thatís more reliable but I would def stay away from the urine one if you can. Like hakrueg mentioned theres the NIPT which is a blood test that they can do starting around 10 ish weeks I think? It uses fetal DNA in your blood and checks for chromosomal abnormalities (I think) and can tell you gender as well! It didnít even exist with my first pregnancy in 2012, and my second in 2015/16 it was still new and only done on older women and high risk pregnancies. NOWADAYS I think itís routinely offered in many offices! I would definitely check with your provider when you have your first visit!

    Hakrueg I think doulas are so cool and always wanted one BUT my previous midwife would stay with you through your whole labor basically (she really was the best) so a doula was sort of redundant. Iím still sad as hell that she moved ... the maternity ward at the hospital she delivered at closed due to not enough births, so she moved. Unfortunately I canít follow her since I work for the hospital system and have their insurance and we have to stay in network... BUT they do have their own OB/midwife practice now, which they did not with my previous two pregnancies. When my midwife moved I was posting in a local group on fb how upset I was and one of the midwives at the new practice that Iíll be at actually private messaged me and put my mind way at ease! She was super nice and helpful and assured me that I starting this January they would always have one midwife in hospital on call and that I could definitely have a midwife-assisted VBAC with one of them. Iím going to request her for my first appt I will have to see all the midwives throughout my pregnancy to meet them all but I would really like her to be my primary!

    My period is not even due until Sunday so I am going to wait and call them first thing Monday morning. I have absolutely no idea what will happen appt wise with Covid and all, so we shall see.

    As for finding out gender, I definitely will be finding out, as early as possible. If they donít offer me the NIPT outright I will ask for it; Iíve talked to a couple friends who recently had it done and all had it covered by insurance so Iím hopeful. We already decided that if we had to we would pay out of pocket for it as well. I had awful GD after I found out that DS2 was a boy at my 18 week anatomy u/s. I was so convinced he was a girl, I had different symptoms, vivid dreams of him being a girl, and of course everyone and their mother was like I KNOW ITíS A GIRL!! So I had stupidly convinced myself. There was no denying the penis on the u/s ... the tech chuckled and was like ďwell, heís not shy at all!Ē I had to hold back tears and literally said out loud ďI knew it.Ē I was super upset for a good two plus weeks. Of course he is the sweetest boy and I canít imagine our family without him now! But for me personally I definitely need to know ahead of time. If this is indeed boy #3 I want as long as possible to get used to the idea. Plus honestly I think itís way easier (at least for me) to bond with the baby while pregnant when I know what it is ... I hate saying ďit.Ē Iím a super name nerd and we always started referring to baby by name as soon as we found out. I never wanted to be team green with any of them, I like to plan and prepare ahead of time (TOTAL boy mom personality ) and it just makes it that much easier when you know ahead of time. Thatís just my thoughts

    Sorry for the book lol! Had a quick break at work and wanted to get all my thoughts out before I forgot! I took another test this morning and itís already not even a squinter on the strip tests. Still doesnít feel real to me, despite my absolutely ridiculous sense of smell which seems to get stronger by the hour!

Iím trying to set myself up to avoid it but deep down I know I likely would and I want adequate time to deal with it.

    Man, itís painful to even talk about. The guilt I felt just typing that. Itís like... dare I think positively and hope for a boy?

    Anyway, I am so sorry that you experienced that. It sucks because it goes against everything you are taught to feel towards a baby which magnifies those feelings by 1000%. I hope this is your girl. You worked hard for her!

    You summed up my feelings exactly! The guilt you feel even wishing for a particular gender.... itís a whole bunch of emotions. Iím so glad I found this site and these boards. Even more than just to help our sway, also just to know Iím not the only one who feels/has felt this way! Itís so taboo to talk about in real life and thereís so much shame in it... We only told a few of our very good friends that we were even TTC in the first place because everyone has their opinions, and of those we told, only a very select few did I mention the sway. Itís like you can feel the judgement even mentioning ďI did this to try to get a girl.Ē Most people just think my diet/exercise was to help with weight loss so luckily that was easy to explain.

    And thank you! I hope so too and same for you! Letís throw our blue and pink dust at each other!

    Hi ladies! I just wanted to say congratulations and share my NIPT experience. With DD I was under 35 so insurance wouldn’t cover it, and running it through insurance was going to cost about $1000 but by not putting it through insurance and direct paying, it cost about $350!
