I had a new test run, called MaterniT21.  It is a blood draw that tests for Trisomy 13, 18 and 21 and can also tell gender.  All the trisomy tests came back normal (YIPPY!!!) and it's a boy!  I was convinced it was a girl so I'm a little shocked but obviously thrilled.  My DD might take a little longer to come around..she's been talking about having a sister.  Our NT scan is Friday to check for any major structural defects.  After that I'll take a big sigh of relief and start shopping ;-)

Wow, how cool!  I've never heard of that test before.  How exciting that you know trisomy results and baby's gender!  Congratulations on expecting a sweet baby BOY!

Congratulations! It's so nice to eliminate some of the potential problems from our list of worries. I'm excited about the anatomical US to see the little monkey since I was only 6 weeks at my dating US and all I saw was a cashew lol. That test is great, I know a lot of expecting moms who would love to know gender this early. I'm a surprise mama myself but I'm happy for you for the great results!

Congratulations! You will LOVE being a boy mama. It is so much more fun than I ever expected. Plus, little boys LOVE their mommies. I've never heard of that test either, so I'm rather jealous you found out so early!

Thanks girls!  We are excited and feel very lucky to have the chance to be parents to both a girl and a boy.  Should be a whole new experience =)
