Hello, all! My name is Julia and I'm pregnant with my first :) I'm due October 11th, so just over 14 weeks now. Based on a gender prediction test followed by a "loose confirmation" at an ultasound I had on the 5th, my boyfriend and I are pretty confiedent we're having a boy! I'm super-excited to be a part of this community and to meet you all <3

It's an overwhelming amount of stuff! I think all of us first timers are kind of bewildered by a lot of it. I have a six year old niece and remember a fair amount of stuff from my sister's pregnancy & my niece's babyhood, so I'm not totally in the dark, but it's still a lot different when YOU'RE the one going through it!

I can't wait to find out the sex and start buying stuff! My mother-in-law called me yesterday to say happy birthday and we were talking about how the next three weeks are going to DRAG waiting for the anatomy scan. She had gone in some shop & had to physically restrain herself from buying this adorbs little pink crocheted hat with a big pink flower on it. :)

Thank you so much for sharing, ladies! I may as well warn you all right now...the main reason I decided to join this group is to learn because I know VERY little about this whole journey we're all going on. What a great place to learn, though!

So...woo-hoo! It's really looking like I got a little boy is growing inside me, huh? :) I sure do hope so, because we're been buying the most adorable little boy clothes lol!

Thanks, again!

A girl shot will look like three lines (it's really an outline of the labia, the spaces between the lines are the lips.) A boy's penis will look like a little turtle head.

I wish I could remember who posted and where, but there's a whole website dedicated to guessing the gender on ultrasounds. Lol. Anyhow, they say girl images show three white lines - I forget how they describe boys'.

Thank you so much for all your kind words and welcome's! Yay for excited mommies :) I'm so glad my sister told me about this site and all the great discussion boards! So, below this the photo that we're thinking is a pretty good indicator that it's a boy (nope, he wasn't shy at ALL lol)...what do we think, ladies?! Photo attatched...

Welcome! I haven't been able to get an u/s tech to guess for us yet. I almost had one on the hook on Friday last week, but the other tech in the room shut her down with a, "we can't say anything before 16 weeks." *sigh*

Congrats on your (probably) little boy. Nice due date. I'm due on the 9th and hoping if I have to go late, it'll be 10/11/12.
