Hey June Mamas! The other thread was getting long, so I started a new one. I went through and made a list of everyone who has found out the sex and people who are team green. I will update the list over the next few weeks once everyone that wants to know has found out the sex. Sorry if there are any mistakes! For those of you that didn’t list your EDD where your wedding date used to be, I either made a guess based on comments you made about how far along you were, or if I couldn’t do that, I just put a question mark. So here’s where we are! Only vote in the poll if you know the sex, or are Team Green.
Ellebeerob: EDD 6/2- Boy
Ballet513L EDD around 6/2?- Girl
MrsSawyer: EDD 6/12- Green
stillme: EDD 6/8- Green
MrsLox: EDD ??- Girl
legalese: EDD 6/15- Girl
araneidae: EDD 6/19- Green
Robin_Sparkles: EDD ??- Girl
saltbalty: EDD 6/2- Boy
Chappers10: EDD ??- Green
MrsKrumpet: EDD around 6/6?- Girl
SBMT: EDD 6/9- Girl
CaptainSpauling: EDD around 6/13?- Boy
Faye0314: EDD 6/1- Girl
Sweethart: EDD 6/2- Green

Boo can’t link from old thread to this one… @ellebeerob i can’t believe your mil did that! And thought it was funny!? Was it more of a “omg they want to name the baby ___ ____. Can you believe that? What do you think of the name?!” Because my inlaws are kind of doing that with the girl name. But we aren’t going to keep the name a secret.

I am going nuts waiting for my ultrasound next week. I just want to know! I’m surprised how many people with mid-June due dates know already, my MD wouldn’t let me sneak in early for my anatomy scan. I know there are way more important things on the exam than finding out the gender but come on I’m curious! My husband won’t even discuss names until we know soooo he better be prepared to talk Tuesday night. I’m tired of calling the baby “IT”

@MyFavouriteChords: my dr wouldnt let me sneak in early either. So on my exact 20w date I have the first appointment of the day. 🙂 I think a few of the June momma’s had an elective ultrasound before their dr appointment. Hubby wouldn’t talk boy names or nursery themes until we know after the appointment. 🙁 feb 4th needs to come fast!

@MrsDW: She tried to play it off like she was throwing different baby names out there to people and threw our baby’s name in to see if they liked it, but COME ON. It was painfully obvious that she had just told someone and felt stupid after we got mad at her. This is childish, but I was so mad at her I told her she couldn’t post anything about the baby on Facebook anymore – not even pics etc after he’s born – because I just can’t trust her to not cross boundaries in sharing information about him anymore if she can’t follow a simple request to not share his name – the ONE thing we asked of her.
@MyFavouriteChords: My husband wouldn’t talk names until after the anatomy scan either! Made me batty! But it also didn’t keep me from making lists 🙂
We ate dinner with my ILs last night and between finding out my Mother-In-Law has told people the name when we asked her to keep her mouth shut, and my Father-In-Law telling me horror stories he’s heard about birth, and telling me I need to “stop trying to be a hero” and drop the natural birth thing and “go sign up for a C-section because that’s the safe way to deliver a baby nowadays” I had a migraine by the time we left. Why do we live 5 minutes away from DH’s parents and not mine?!!?!

@dreamocracy – I can’t tag you from the last thread, but I’ve heard chiropractic care during pregnancy is a godsend! I am going to start going back soon. I even read a study that said an adjustment prior to birth can shorten delivery time, and that there is a chiropractic maneuver that can help turn a breech baby. I found out my chiro actually specializes in maternal chiropractic medicine, so I’m excited to go back. So is my back 🙂

@bwaychick: thanks so much for organizing the list! so helpful!
Congrats to everyone who has found out the gender of their babies since I posted last. It seems like we’re really moving fast now!
I forgot to mention that at our appointment last week we did a quad screen blood test for downs, spina bifida, etc. We had opted out of the NT test during the first trimester, so this was our first test like this. We got our results at the end of last week – the doctor said they were perfect – our risk is 1/10,000! So, that’s a comfort.

@ellebeerob: I’m in the same boat with the inlaws. We are less than 2 miles away from my inlaws and an hour from my parents. We both love my parents more. Your inlaws sound as bad as mine. I’m so sorry you have to deal with that too.

@MrsDW: I wish I could tell my husband how much they annoy me, but they’re really old and he’s an only child so his feelings get really hurt if I say anything about them. It makes me really sad that they’ll be the grandparents our kids are closest to because I really can’t stand them a lot of the time. I can already tell they’re going to try and undermine my parenting and blow it off as “spoiling the grandbaby”.
