Oh dear MrsT I misread. But like hopefully said any loss is good!
I would want to know straight away if it's a boy or a girl!! I love surprises but I also hate the wait!
So today I feel very strange down there. I can't describe it. And I feel like a strange smell keeps coming and going. Sorry tmi.

When is AF due wish?

Wish - that makes sense. You know what? We will be there before you know it. We (DF) may be cycling together That would be nice.
Hope - I think a lot of people now wait later in life to TTC. I had quite a few friends that had bubs very young, have finished their families and the kids are already at school!!! I also have a lot of other friends (mostly at work) that aren't even thinking of kids yet and are older than me. I guess it just depends on where you are in life and at what age. I spent my early 20's travelling and being carefree haha. I really didn't want to "settle down" at that point because I had so much I wanted to do.
I have always thought I'd like to have kids before 35 so in my eyes we still have plenty of time! DF wants our kids yesterday lol.
Now for the sex of the baby - we definitely want to find out because we want to be organised and prepared but we won't be telling anyone the sex as we want it to be a surprise for everyone else. I think what your friend meant was that it is still a surprise when you find out at the scan. You go in knowing it could be either and come out knowing what it is. Same as when its born just you have to wait longer lol
Coco - hope you have been doing a lot of baby dancing haha. Fingers crossed you get some good news next week!
Two girls, one dream and baby you are it!

Thanks Hope. I really SHOULD lose about 20kgs before I have kids (while it's easier) but you know what, I've become comfortable in my skin lol and am not so self obsessed as I was as a teen. I come from a very curvy family who have all vocally struggled with weight, so I knew it would happen to me eventually if I wasn't careful. I've just learned how to dress to conceal it haha. But I AM currently setting myself a goal of 5.5kgs this month, so that will feel very good at the end of things if I'm successful. Who knows, may give me the motivation is need to stay healthy through the silly season lol.
I am the youngest in my groups to have kids, all my high school friends either had their whoopseys at 18, or are a long way from settling down. I have always surrounded myself with older people, but still there's not many babies around me haha.
We know 100% certainty that we will find out the sex of our babies. I'm all for spontaneous surprises, but I need to be in control, so this definitely would not work for me. Can't prepare for something you don't know what it is lol. I don't want to have to buy white everything haha...
And DH well, he hates surprises with a deep resentful passion. He spends most of the Xmas season giving relatives (inc myself!) the silent treatment because they won't tell him what is wrapped under the tree, for eg. So there's no surprises with his opinion there.

I definitely intend to find out the gender and this ultrasound place near me apparently depending on the package you choose you can have a few family members with you too so I will have my nan there, my MIL ( sadly probably not my mum as she lives up north but may be able to get her down on a Saturday) and my partner and then they can all find out the gender when we do. Probably have my brothers gf there too since we get along so well. My SIL wasn't like that at all. In fact I don't think my MIL saw her baby for the first month. Just on Skype which I find odd. I mean barring your own mother?

However we are in the find out the sex camp, I'm to much a planner! Plus it wasn't any less special at DS's birth because we knew he'd be a boy.
I would love a surprise but would only do it if we had a girl next then went back for #3. That idea alone makes me hope next one is a girl!!
12-11-2013 20:11 #808
Yeah I agree; if we had 1 of each then the third we might keep it a surprise. But less that we would want the surprise more just that it doesn't matter either way lol.

I agree with ensuring people keep their distance in those first few months, but I don't think immediate parents and siblings apply to that rule...
