Wow. Very very excited!!!

Had a private scan at 17weeks today to happily find out I'm expecting a boy! Words escape me! I'm very much excited!

I thought I'd pop on here and just let the world know hahagrin

Anyone else finding out their babies gender prior to birth???

Hoping to, but have so long to wait it's depressing. I'm 17 weeks tomorrow and have my 20 week scan at 22+1! Dying of curiosity.

I couldn't contain myself had to book a private, the whole experience is amazing in private, big screens etc, have you ever thought of that option?

Congratulations!! thanksthanks

Smile would you mind if I asked where you went and how much it was?

OH won't agree! Says that the £80 we'd spend on a scan could buy the baby tons of stuff. He is right, but then he's patient unlike me. I'll just obsess over the nub theory until then... Thank you, you too! thanks

Fatty, I'm in Scotland and went to an independent one called Babes in the Womb! Amazing people, it's a small independent one but been there for nearly 10 years - but my good friend went to ultrasound- direct .com which have lots of establishments across uk, it was £75 for mines, I received multiple photographs and a its a boy frame! Very delighted with the service we received!

Kirjava - my oh was the same but I just booked it anyway wink he couldn't be more happy now though, he's telling everyone and their dog, very proud first time father! smilesmilesmile

We found out at 20 week scan that we are also having a boy..

I'm 25 weeks now...

Congrats..

Smilehappy Sat 25-May-13 23:17:48

Congratulations hartmel!smilethanks

Names?

Thanks! How have you found your pregnancy so far? This your first?

Gonnabmummy Sun 26-May-13 00:46:22

Boy here too 26+4 with first :D
Congrats everyone thanks

hartmel Sun 26-May-13 03:45:40

Smilehappy - yes it is my first one.. So far pregnancy is going good. I'm on sick leave since 20 weeks (25 weeks now) due to round ligament pain. I'm a customer service rep. And it is not easy job when you are pregnant..

Yes we actually had a name picked out already before I got pregnant. I know weird. :-) his name will be Samuel (but we will call him Sam)

What about you? Your first one? Do you have name?

FattyMcChubster Sun 26-May-13 03:52:02

Thank you smile and congratulations! thanks

I didn't find out with DS but had a private internal 12 week scan and they were able to tell me! Will see if they are right I guess!

LuckySocks13 Sun 26-May-13 07:48:45

that's meant to read that this time (I'm 14 weeks now!)

Smilehappy Sun 26-May-13 10:43:08

Hartmel- yeah pretty tiring job while pregnant! Do you think you will be going back, can't they arrange any adjustments for you?
I went to Spain in my first trimester was pretty waste tbh, I was very ill but since 12 weeks everything has gone great... Long may it last

This is my second, DS Is 4,

OH likes Brody but when telling close family what he likes they all are a bit hmm saying its a girls name... confused So not sure anymore.. Don't think we will be sharing anymore ideas! wink

Samuel is lovely! My godson is named Samuel smilesmile

Lucky- let's hope they're correct!? I'm guessing you may have bought blue etc for this one? I think finding out helps you be more prepared, my Sister didn't find out but in later stages was gutted as she was sick of neutral colours! hmm

Smilehappy Sun 26-May-13 10:45:38

Gonnabmummy - congratulations!!

How has your preg been so far? Any names picked out yet?

When preg with DS1 I was due end of July so the hot weather made it so horrible, hope your keeping well x

Longfufu Sun 26-May-13 10:45:41

I'm having a boy, I love the idea of having two boys. DH is one of 3 and warns me we'll be in A&E every weekend like his mother after weekend rugby matches, scraps and so on. Fun times smile

Smilehappy Sun 26-May-13 11:12:31

Haha grin it will be fun and games for us!

My DS is very excited he's getting a brother! I think it will be easier for growing up too, we have a 2bed just now and didn't want to have to move so glad they can share a room toys etc... Very exciting!

Do you have any names picked yet?

Congratulationsthanksthanks

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Sun 26-May-13 17:18:37

I am 17 weeks today and today found out we are having a boy too! Also DS2!

We haven't told anyone yet, not sure whether to just wait til they ask or do a big announcement. We didn't find out with DS1 so this is all new. What are you doing?

Smilehappy Sun 26-May-13 18:29:47

We told family together and close friends basically straight after (couldn't contain ourselves!) lol and told everyone else via Facebook :-) nice announcement ! I've ran out of people to tell!

Congratsthanksthanks any names? X

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Sun 26-May-13 18:58:11

Not yet! You?

Longfufu Sun 26-May-13 20:29:22

Our name is Arthur, DH and I love the name my mum however was hmm

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Sun 26-May-13 20:49:47

Gorgeous name!
I've got £10 on the royal baby being called Arthur grin

Congrats to everyone on their news!

We had a private 17 week scan today and we're also having a boy!

Smilehappy Sun 26-May-13 22:33:26

Congrats fairy!!

Arthur is lovely! I hate people giving unwanted opinions on your chosen or thought-about names, we like Bordy/Brodie for our boy but OH family are also a bithmm
sad

I also like Jack and Mason!
