 Hopefully it will go by fast for you!  We're keeping this baby a surprise so I have a TON of waiting to do!

Some doctors like to wait a little longer for the ultrasound to get some better images of the heart and things like that- I had to wait until at least 18 weeks, but we didn't find out what baby was.  

Let us know what you are having after you find out!

 I hate that all the dr's are so different. I am 16 weeks and I go today for a checkup for the baby and hopefully I will be able to schedule the U/S for the gender in 2 weeks but they typically do it at 20 weeks. They said if I really want to know they will schedule it early. And like you, I need to do some shopping so I want to know. I really didn't want to do one of the elective U/S so I am trying to hold out.

My doctor is "old-fashioned" so I never found out the sex with his ultrasound in both my pregnancies! I paid for a separate ultrasound to find out both times!

I didn't wait! I paid for an elective 3D and found out 3 weeks sooner :)
