We'll all feel blessed with whatever we get but, meanwhile, what are you secretly hoping for? How about the future dad or the rest of the family?
When you find out for sure, share your news here!
We both would love to have at least one of each at some point. If our twins end up being identical or fraternal but of the same gender, my husband is hoping for girls. He grew up as an isolated only child and I think he finds the idea of two girls a little less overwhelming than two boys. (He just doesn't know how active and demanding little girls can be. )
I'm really unsure. I've always dreamed of having a daughter, at least one, because I have such a wonderful relationship with my mother and grandmother and aunts. More than friends, more than family, a special bond. I always dreamed of having a little girl to carry this on. And I love to sew and make things and have a huge collection of dolls, doll clothes, doll furniture... I'd like to share it with someone! My nieces and my cousins' daughters are already drowning in pink things so my precious dolls would just be lost in the heap.
Then again, I have two younger brothers whom I adore. I helped raise them and I have very maternal feelings towards them. I am so proud to see the kind, mature, handsome men they've become. I still have dreams where they are babies again. I'm responsible for them and something bad happens: I lose one of them or he gets sick or hurt or swallows a tube of toothpaste... So I've had mother-anxieties since I was a toddler myself! Raising boys can be a wonderful thing, too, and I would regret never having a son.
I have a little boy that is four. He will be five in March before the baby gets here.
I would be so VERY excited to have a little girl. My mom and I are really close so I would love to have a a daughter to have that bond with. But then again I am really close with my dad. And of course I am close with my son. Anywho. I hope for a girl (with redhair if Im going to be picky.. I have redhair too haha) But I would be perfectly fine with another boy. I think...
And of course... HEALTH is the #1 factor in all this
I want a girl for sure!
I'll be happy as long as the baby is healthy. That being said, I'm hoping for a boy. I'm not at all girly and don't know the first thing about bows and frills. Any girl I have would end up a complete tomboy. Are ya'll finding out the gender or keeping it a secret? My SO has finally convinced me to find out.

Well i have a little girl who is four and will be turnung 5 a month after this baby is born...I had a strong feeling it is a boy...went and had an ultrasound, it was early and she said it looked like a girl went back a week and a half later and sure enough it had grown something between the legs...I am having a boy and I am scared and excited all at the same time!!!! Not sure how its going to be with a boy...I feel it will be harder but my mom says its not...we will see i guess!!!!!
Congrats on the little boy, Ashley. I'm sure it'll be a wonderful adventure. Cass, I hesitated about finding out the gender, too--my parents waited to be surprised and I like the idea of just accepting whatever comes and not planning out the baby's identity before it's even born. At the same time, I'd feel kind of silly to refuse to listen to any information about my babes that the doctors obviously have and at every u/s my eyes are glued to the screen so I would probably notice something anyway.
I've got my next u/s next Thursday--just one week. I'll be at 17 weeks and I know it's not guaranteed but maybe we'll get to find out. One of each... that would be so cool...
Julie (Jboz), I think you have your next u/s next week, too. I hope you're doing great and I can't wait to find out if you're getting your hoped-for little girl or an adorable little brother for your son.
Second-trimester ultrasounds should be coming up for lots of our May babies. Who else is finding out soon?
Hey om Yes I find out Wednesday what we are having. I have came to the understanding that if it is a boy, I wont get upset. There for awhile I was wanting a girl so bad that I had to step back and look at the reality that it could be a boy.. so I guess I am prepared and READY. You will have to let me know how ur u/s goes.
I went and saw one of my friends that had her twins on Friday. Two little girls They were soooooo cute Their names were Emily and Megan. They were fraternal. But... I will spare you the details of the labor of twins.
Glad to hear from you again, Jboz! Tomorrow! I'm excited for you. I'll check here to see what you find out. For my part I'm so fixated on the idea of having one of each that I'll probably be a little shocked and disappointed if it's not. But I know the disappointment is only temporary, and absolutely not personal or against the baby. If I find out there are two boys or two girls, I know I won't want to--uh--exchange one for anything else in the world!
Those are cute twin girl names, Emmy and Meggy. I know more than I wish I did about twin births now. I've been reading up, of course, and my sister had her babies (beautiful boy and girl, both over 5 pounds though born at 36 weeks) on Sunday. Preeclampsia, emergency c-section, major hemorrhaging afterward and her womb had been so severely stretched that it just wouldn't shrink again, intensive care for a couple of days... We were actually afraid she wouldn't make it! Now I'm just so relieved that she's alive and OK and that the babies are healthy, and I'm trying not to imagine myself going through the same thing. I know it will be hard but chances are it won't be THAT hard.
I had my last classes of the semester today and my students gave me an adorable card and presents for the babies and they wouldn't leave until I solemnly swore I would send the whole class an email on Thursday when I found out their genders. I was really touched. That's one of the fun parts of teaching.
It is a BOY. He is healthy and very active so we are really excited. I got just a little bit upset at first but I am good now
