I will be 14.5 weeks at the appointment accprding to my most recent DD.



As for the cake, we are doing white cake with whip cream and either strawberry or blueberry filling depending on the gender.



The names we have are
Liam for a boy
Adaleigh for a girl
:)

Speaking of genders, that reminds me... On Saturday we went to my grandma's house to celebrate my uncle's birthday. My dad is the only person we told about the likely genders of the twins, and he decided to tell everyone even though we're not sure. Sure enough, my grandma goes off about how much she wants a great granddaughter.:roll: I got the exact same speech when we found out Silas was a boy. Clearly this woman thinks you push a button to select the gender at conception.



Sorry for the mild rant lol.

Good luck! That's awesome about the new washer. I wanted to get a new set and a DSLR at tax time, but we've decided we need a new car. Plus we're doing cloth diapers, so my camera money turned into diaper money... But I'm pretty excited about buying those too, so it's all good.

Quoting susanesque:" I'd be pissed. When do you find out for sure?"


I go back on the 23rd, I'm thinking I'll get a more solid answer then.



I honestly don't even know why my grandma cares what the genders are. She doesn't get to see my son very often as it is because whenever we go there she makes a point to see how much she can make him cry. Then I get in her face and it's this big issue every single time. Apparently I'm a horrible and overprotective parent because I don't sit and laugh while people poke their fingers in my kid's face to see how much he'll cry. Erg.

Quoting susanesque:" WTF? That's awful. :( I can't imagine I'd want my kid around my grandma if she was like that. What's her deal?"


She just thinks she's being incredibly funny. Her personality is... different lol. It'd be fine if she would lay off when I speak up but she takes that offensively and insists on doing it more to show how "wrong" I am. Then she wonders why I don't ask her to babysit (not that I ever need a babysitter seeing as I'm a SAHM).



When DH and I found out we were having another baby she took it to FB to tell everyone how I should get my tubes tied and DH should get a vasectomy. I have no idea why she thought that was ok to say, or even why she said it seeing as we only have 1 child, are married, and financially stable. I distanced myself from her since then and actually hadn't seen her in over 3 months until Saturday.

Had my pap appointment today and got my blood drawn. Baby pa great. Super wiggly. They would find the heartbeat and baby would move. Haha. Finally we got 164 bpm. I on the other hand am apparently not so well. They told me my urine says I am dehydrated and need more fluids. Also one of my ovaries is enlarged. I go in Thursday for an ultrasound to see if I have a cyst. They told me that this is most likely why I have had so much back pain so early.

Definitely a girl this time. I have an almost 5 yr old son, so a change of pace would be nice. I feel like its a girl and we actually caught my son praying for a baby sister before we found out I was pregnant. All he talks about is his "liddle sister" and how he's going to be a big brother lol.



I'll post pics after the party, but it's just a small family only get together :)



What about you? What are you hoping for?

Aww that's sweet, I hope he gets a little sister!



We are hoping for a girl as well! We have a two year son. It would be nice to have one of each
