Found out the gender!
Tue, 10-23-2012 - 9:36pm

We found out late last week that we're having a GIRL!  i have a 3yo son so this will be new for us. I'm trying to get in girl mode and bought some pink shoes for her. My husband seems terrified lol.  Anyone else find out yet?

We won't find out until our anatomy scan (which we haven't scheduled yet)......i imagine sometime in late November/early December.  I'm only 14 weeks now so I have a little while to wait....but I can't wait to know :)

Good luck getting into girl mode.  I have a 16 month old DD and I HATE pink......I dislike a lot of the clothes options for her because they all just seem so girly (and that's not me)......but as soon as you put Blue on your child everyone assumes they're a boy??!?!?!?!  Grrrr!

Congrats! I have this feeling I'm also having a girl, but I won't know for a while. A friend of mine just had a daughter on Sunday, so she thinks it would be great to share all the hand-me-downs the first couple of years.

Congratulations on your girl news! I'm ready to know, but have to wait a few more weeks for our next scan on Dec 3. Seems like forever away, and could happen sooner if I didn't have so many trips scheduled for work.

So exciting! We had our son first and our daughter is 2 yrs 8 mos younger. It is a great gender / age separation as our son (like most boys) are a bit more immature and our daughter is more mature (typical for girls) and they play pretty well together and interact well. My daughter LOVES having a big brother.

We will find out two weeks from Friday.

Awesome! Congrats. We're also hoping for a girl. I have 5 boys from a previous marriage and we have 2 boys of our own together. I'm 36 (37 when this baby comes) and hubby is 34 so we're both ready to be done. A girl would just be that extra special cherry on top. :)

Congrats!  I must admit that I'm a bit jealous as I've been obsessing over finding out for what seems like forever.  Some days I think it's a girl and then others I think definitely a boy.  Either way, a healthy baby is priceless.  Having a girl takes a little getting used to (diaper changes are TOTALLY different) but it's sooo worth it.  Happy shopping.

Congrats!!  I'm predicting a girl here, but we don't find out until the week after Thanksgiving.  I have a DS and think a girl would be fun.  But another boy would be tons of fun too.
