To Find Out the Gender or Not?

I am expecting baby #3 in September. We need to decide whether to find out the gender at our ultrasound in 8 weeks. We didn't find out with either of our other 2. One boy, one girl so far! Since I have one of each already, I don't need to find out in order to prepare the nursery or buy items. We already have everything we need for either gender. The nursery is gender neutral and most of my 0-3 items are also gender neutral. We do have several items from the previous kids that are blue or pink so I am not worried about needing to shop...

Pregnancy and Insurance

My sister just got insurance in October however it does not become effective until November 1. She is now 6 weeks late on her period. If she was pregnant would this be covered or considered a pre existing condition? Should she wait to take a test until Novemver 1 so she can say she didn't know she was pregnant? She has been very late before and doesn't think she is pregnant but we were just wondering how this would all work. Thanks ladies. Update: This will be through my husbands company. I had insurance through my company until my...

Preparing to Co-parent with Birth Father

Hi. I need help with "words", in order to reconcile a difficult relationship and keep my baby's father in the picture. I am 6 mos. pregnant, from the man I continued to date long-distance when I moved to CO in August 2007. We kept dating b/c he said he'd be moving here in Summer 2008. We got pregnant in Nov. 2007 very unexpectedly while in Chicago for a weekend. This might have given him even more reason to move. Our relationship deteriorated rapidly as he hedged over the last 4 months, finally getting to the point of telling me 6...

When to Announce Your Pregnancy???

I had a miscarriage in April when I was 14wks pregnant and now I'm finally pregnant again! I just don't know when I should announce this pregnancy to our family and friends. I feel that I just want to wait until we hear its heart beat,reassuring me that my risk of miscarriage has gone down. Plus last time when I announced it to the family everyone was so excited so when we lost the baby it was not only a let down for me and my husband but also the rest of the family. Lately I've been really sick and not feeling well and its hard hiding...

Anyway both of these pregnancies my son knew we were pregnant (the first time we told him and the second he was asking questions about it). Anyway lately I have had a doctors appt every 2 weeks as follow-ups. Well for the last 2-3 weeks(since the last miscarriage) my 6 year old has been crying all the time when I am around. He is not acting this way around my husband or babysitter or friends unless I am around. So after a huge...
