Who's finding out the sex of their bubs?

I'm booked in for a private gender scan on 26th July (at 16+5) and wondered if anyone else is doing the same.....or if you already have how it went? I'd love to see your pics if you have any too. Also if you found out at your 20wk scan :D

we are both too impatient and nosey to wait, we got a private scan at 14 weeks and it looked like a boy and on the word of a reliable mystic person its a boy. We are having it sexed at 20 weeks too, just confirm..... we cant wait, because we are always yapping away to him (him at the moment) and even call him by name although that has changed once (hubbies fault).

To those of you who found out your having a boy could you tell it was a boy just by looking at the scan?. We had our 20 week scan on tuesday and there was definitely something down below but our hospital has a strict policy of not telling you what sex the baby is or even looking for the sex so were still none the wiser.Its bugging me because I know I seen something but dont know what that something is lol.

I just phoned the clinic to book my private gender id scan and i thought it was from 16 weeks that they could do them but the woman said to me - "oh no, we can do it from 13 weeks"
I asked how accurate that was and she said 95%!!!!!!

But i booked for when i am 16 weeks anyway to make sure :happy: can't wait!

Hi laydeees, well we had our gender scan yesterday at 16wks +5days and we've got...............................

bab21 and bab22

We would have been happy with any combo but this seems perfect. DH is happy too as he secretly wanted a little girl :D The scan was a private one at babybond and cost us £79. They showed us both bubs in both 2D and 3D. Their gender was 'very clear' according to the sonographer.....now for shopping!! :D

Twinkle you are so lucky having a boy/girl twins. It does sound if there are a lot of boy arrivals. I would love a boy next time round as I've always wanted a son but would also feel 100% blessed with another girl.

I just want to buy train sets and cars really :snigger:

Good luck to everyone.

i am having a 16 week scan tomorrow and we didn't want to find out. but now............knowing we 'can' find out and struggling to come up with names is making us sway towards knowing!

my cousin found out with all 3 and said that when you give birth you don't care whether it's a boy or girl because you are knackered and just want to know they are alright! that made me think it will be more exciting to know now (especially for me!)

my mum won't want to know so i will either have to keep it to myself or spoil 'her' surprise!
