I was told today that I have to wait 8 more weeks until I find out the sex of my little one. What did you guys do to occupy this time because it is killing me?

  • yell out the boy or girl names and see if they move... did this with my twins... apparently the didn't like being called boy names cuz they kicked me. they are girls!

  • I didn't find out until birth with my second. So I would give my oldest son something pink and something blue and ask him which was for baby.

  • I just made a list of boy and girl names and started narrowing them both down. I also had lots of fun picking diapers and gender neutral items for the time being. Not a whole bunch of stuff but there are plenty of greens, yellows, browns, ect that are fun to get, especially the cozy lounging around the house outfits =)

  • i just was going crazy lol. i was cleaning up the baby stuff from the basement though, so that occupied some time. and cleaning out the 'guest bedroom' and making it into the baby's room. so that helped too. but i always had a dream about the baby and what sex it was going to be...i was right for all 3! with my oldest i even dreamed about how he would look and i was dead on. that really freaks me out lol

  • You could do some "old wives tales" for fun like holding a necklace above your hand going in a circle is supposed to mean girl and swaying is supposed to mean boy...

  • Oh the waiting sucked...I started just taking bets. Not money bets or anything, just asking around to family and friends what they felt it was. Everyone at work who could see me grow said girl. My mom and gram said boy but that was just their feelings. I live out of state so they could see me. Turned out to be a girl! :D

  • My doctor didnt do a ultrasound until 20 weeks so I went to the ultrasound place at the mall at 16 weeks because I couldnt wait any longer, I think it was around $70 to find out the sex.
