It's definitely a bit cheesy and American, but as my mum said "sounds suitable tacky" haha. It's just a bit of fun really for my parents, grandma (who is rarely in the UK) and siblings because everyone happens to be nearby at the moment. Also it'll by my partner's birthday, and the first time my siblings will have met him! So there's a lot of reason to make a cake and be a bit cheesy

I think because these are the first grandchildren and great-grandchildren for grandma, they are quite excited. Any subsequent children might not stir as much excitement. Not that I'm planning on popping anymore out after this, I'd have to be mad to go through another first trimester! My mum said she said that with all 3 of us though.

Oh that's so cute Laura! I bet you're bursting to know now.. I'm not going to find out and it's already killing me..

Oh no Blueflower I hope your cat comes home

Is everyone else finding out or having a surprise?? I really think in my gut I have another girly on board.. My partner would LOVE a boy..

I've had the first grandchild/great grandchild and I have to admit it's been a lovely experience.. I feel slightly guilty on my older sister's part but she's not particularly baby-inclined!

Blonde I hope you are getting a little relief now? It must be horrible having that on top of everything else weird and wonderful occurring with your body at the moment?

Rhiandell great that your low risk! I just got demoted as well feels like a weight lifted doesnít it! Iíve just been so stressed out and worried Iíve not enjoyed the first trimester as much as I could have and I've been an emotional mess I'm not normally a crier but my train was busy hot and delayed last week and by the time I got to my OH who was waiting to pick me up I just sobbed hahah he didn't know what to do with me

Princess P I looked 4 months at 6 weeks and am just getting bigger! Iím hoping some people at work due the same time catch up and I slow down I might actually burst at this rate! I do agree with KateK there is something to be very proud of I find Iíve started sticking it out haha

What's everyone's thoughts on FB announcements ?
Hubby isn't fussed either way but has said to me because we've waited so long for these bubbas and he knows how much I struggled with them on FB as I longed for our own that I deserve to put one on
I suppose I'm still quite nervous about everything ?

Yeah, I'm not sure about this one and I have no friends or family (of my generation) with kids yet. I think it'll come as a big surprise to many, as I am only 24 and many of my friends are still students.

If I do, I was thinking of sticking pink hair bows or blue bow ties on my next sonogram and then posting the picture with something like "Pending January 2017!" Can't be dealing with love hearts and cheesy bump pictures, but that's just my preference!

I think your idea is adorable and tasteful! I'd go full on though with balloons in a box or firing confetti out of a cannon or something which is definitely cheesy haha

Anyway, I totally caved today and went for a gender scan. We're having a little boy I'm so pleased, one of each! My OH doesn't want to find out til the 20 week scan though so I have to keep til then aaagh

Robbda, yes it's definitely a relief, especially as bf said early on "I can't handle a special needs child" and I don't think I could face abortion. And then we both cried when we were told about the options if one twin has a trisonomy and one doesn't and none of us could face that. Now we can just relax.

Blueflower, so sad to hear about your missing cat. But don't give up hope! We just got our Sammie back after two months. We had completely given up, but my mother in law so a post on Facebook and it turned out she had been taken in by a lovely couple just around the corner!

I'm really conflicted about the gender thing. I feel pretty pressured by people to find out, but originally I didn't want to, because I don't want to unconsciously start to place my baby in a certain slot even before they are born (research shows people start talking differently to the bump already based on what gender they believe it is) and I'm really not a fan of colour coding. But if they are different, we would know if they're identical, which I'd like to know. But part me also feel like refusing because everyone keeps asking if I'm going to find out. Then again, it might be hard to avoid because I'm having so many scans late I pregnancy. Might ask not to be told, and if I see some myself than so be it.

I am staying team yellow although I'm pretty convinced I'm having another boy. I don't believe it any of the theories so am ignoring them but I had a very clear nub on my scan picture and I've done a lot of research to convince myself it's just a theory etc but it is based on medical evidence and can be over 90% accurate with it being more accurate predicting boys. I am not disappointed in having another boy at all but feel like the surprise has been spoilt for me. I asked someone I know about the reliability of using nub as she is a sonographer and she said it is a reliable way of predicting sex of baby.

I stayed team yellow last time and I too had so much pressure to find out. We didn't though and to find out at the birth was really magical and I would recommend it to anyone.

Ahh you're the first to find out, I think! That's so exciting! I'm convinced boys and oh is convinced girls. I am usually right

uhh I've just had a horrible outing. I was walking up the road to the supermarket, eating a biscuit, and it randomly started to taste like soap (a chocolate biscuit) so I immediately was sick. Luckily it's raining, so I don't think anyone was about to see. Anyway, once that was over, I carried on to the shop and thought I'd be ok. Once I got there though, I felt awful like I was going to faint. So I just walked home really slowly.

Soap taste anyone else?? I've had it a few times now.

Ohh that doesn't sound pleasant! I haven't had the soap taste but after I eat anything it leave a horrible aftertaste in my mouth.

I have been feeling a bit sick today. 16 weeks and still not feeling great. I'm in work but can't focus on doing anything as the sickness keeps coming over me in waves.

That's reassuring, thanks! Was he ok? Heard stories of cats with their claws worn down from scratching to get out, so worried about her. If she comes back we'll be prepared in case she goes on an adventure every summer!

We will probably find out the genders at our 20 week scan! I wonder if I'm right!

There isn't really that many of us in this group compared to other months. or certainly compared to when I was last in a due month group. it's nice in a way as we can all get to know eachother better and it doesn't get too confusing.
