Ultrasound says a Boy!

Dec 05, 2010 - 21 comments

Had my 12 week ultrasound today and the Obs and Gynae told us he is 80% sure it is a boy!
My hubby and I have no children and have been on IVF for two years. we are over the moon everything is healthy and on track , but surprisingly both felt a little disappointed. We had been picking out names for little girls and were both convinced it was going to be a girl. We are definately not taking this for granted as have been trying for so long but will take us a while to get used to the idea, we are having a boy.
I know we will love the little guy no matter what and it will not make any difference to us in the long run.

I'm a bit nervous now as did not imagine myself bringing up a son. Do any of you have boys? Tell me the Pro's and the Con's. Anxious to find out more about raising a boy and what its like.

Any ideas for boy names?

Thanks everyone!

Thankyou ladies

I have been overwhelmed with the love and support from my new medhelp friends. I had an awful weekend worrying about my bleeding until the doctors in ER did an ultrasound and confirmed bub is still alive. I spent the weekend crying and then cried again in relief today . Thankyou so much everyone. Your well wishes must of worked and everything is still on track. I only hope I can be as much support to each of you as you have been to me. Love Natalie x x

Bleeding at 11 weeks

Nov 27, 2010 - 8 comments

I am devastated and haven't stopped crying all afternoon. I was at a BBQ with my husband and he just finished telling his mate our good news and I felt blood run down my leg. I ran to the bathroom and sure enough my knickers were soaked in blood. My husband took me home and put me straight into bed. This time exactly 12 months ago we list our 9 week old little boy. Feel so stupid since I even took a photo of my 10 week baby bump and booked myself in for an amniocentesis. We were going to tell all our family and friends at Xmas. We are only a week away from Week 12. Don't think there's any hope and have to wait through the night to ring my IVF clinic tomorrow.

Strange feeling waiting

Nov 24, 2010 - 2 comments

It's a strange feeling waiting for our next ultrasound in 2 weeks. With no nausea and no symptoms except for am increase in appetite, we have no idea whether it's stll alive in there. It's funny. With a normal pregnancy I am sure people don't even worry at all. It sounds stupid but I would rather have nausea right now so I at least know something is going on.
