happywithit Wed 25-Sep-13 21:00:58

the truth, i want to start buying some girls clothes, i just love them, when i go to the shop, wow, really amazing.

FitzgeraldProtagonist Wed 25-Sep-13 23:45:31

JustGender scan by BabyBond is from 16 weeks and is about £50. I am saving he pennies so being patient butif I get paid might crack and find out next week good luck! I asked at 13.6 and she guessed girl. I would LOVE a daughter. I wold be happy with a boy too, particularly because DP would love it, but really, a girl would be awesome.

Peacenquiet2 Thu 26-Sep-13 06:40:51

Me, i actually have one of each but still hoping deep down that this ones a girl. Im 16 weeks tomorrow and have a private gender scan booked for 40 quid.

I know at this stage its not always possible to tell but i get to go back a week or two after if not for free! Had it been costing more than that i would have had to wait until 25th oct.

Good luck for those wanting little ladies x

charliedrinks26 Thu 26-Sep-13 06:58:00

I'm waiting smile I'm 18 weeks today and I've got to wait til 15 October!! It's my first and I'm soooo inpatient!!! I also hve the fear that he/she won't play and we won't be able to find out!!! Xxxx

Peacenquiet2 Thu 26-Sep-13 09:46:58

For the ladies who are worried about awkward bubs, with dc1, my dd, she crossed her legs firmly at both 20 and 21 week scans ( had to go back due to her awkwardness) so i never did find out from them scans. I went private at 28 weeks and finally found out! So its defo worth having a back up plan just in case.

jessandalfie Thu 26-Sep-13 10:29:36

I'm 16 weeks had a private scan on monday just gone found out I'm having a little girl I'm soo happy I have a little boy aleady so ill have one of each now smile I payed 40 quid worth it lol.. Good luck everyone smile

There are no gender scans around here,the closest is about an hour away and I don't have a car....plus it's £150 shock

I don't mind either way,I just want to know

<pouts>

happywithit Thu 26-Sep-13 18:54:47

congratulation jessandalfie, i am very happy for you.

Peacenquiet2 Thu 26-Sep-13 19:34:59

Jessandalfie, do you mind me asking where you had the scan? Im going to one in thatonheath and hoping they are accurate!

spritesoright Thu 26-Sep-13 19:35:30

Just had our 20 week scan today and found out it's a girl. I thought I wanted a boy as we already have a girl but when I saw her little face I just thought 'of course' and I love her so immensely already I couldn't care less what gender she is. I am so excited.
I hope everyone else's scans go well, it's such an amazing experience (sorry, I'm a bit gushy, I blame the hormones)

spritesoright Thu 26-Sep-13 19:37:02

Oh, and congrats JessandAlfie.

jessandalfie Thu 26-Sep-13 22:03:36

Thanks every1 an I had mine in st helens hello baby lovely little place would recommend to any1 x

Peacenquiet2 Fri 27-Sep-13 00:47:51

Yes, thats the one jessandalfie. They told me its near st helens but actually thattonheath. Thats good to hear that they could tell you the sex clearly, excited for tomorrow now!
Did they give you a glimpse in 3/4d or was it the standard scan?

sleepywombat Fri 27-Sep-13 04:59:02

Recently found out having a third boy. Now sort of wish I hadn't found out because I find myself stupidly weeping every time somebody makes a 'disappointed for you' comment.

thecakeisalie Fri 27-Sep-13 08:19:47

We've got 2 boys already and scan is on 8th November. I was debating about not finding out this time but I just can't wait! I can't say I'm not kind of hoping for a girl this time but mainly for the novelty factor of buying girls clothes etc. Ultimately I know I just want another child and would be thrilled to find out were having another boy.

We had a gender scan with ds2 and I found the whole experience a little under whelming. I guess it really didn't matter to me as much as I thought it would so paying £80 for the sole purpose of finding out the gender just felt like a waste. Plus they were running late so were rushing to find out. Also she made the comment of 'maybe you'll get lucky and get a girl next time' - we've just found out and already someone is disappointed for us!

I agree with preparing yourself for baby being in an awkward position and not being able to find out to avoid being disappointed.

jessandalfie Fri 27-Sep-13 08:58:04

They did it in standard and in 3d/4d it was really good she told me the sex almost straight away. Whens your scan? Good luck smile
