De zwarte lijn van mijn eerste zwangerschap was een dik, zwart en lange lijn en hij was een jonge. Tweede zwangerschap had ik geen lijn tot ik 25 weken oud was, de lijn kwam eruit en dat was ook een jonge en nu ben ik weer zwanger en de lijn is nu dun.

I am 15 weeks as of today and I have two boys and a girl and I don't know yet but I have a thin line from bottom to my belly button. I hope it's right. I tried the Chinese gender and it tells me I am having a girl. No matter what as long as my hubby and I have either we happy.
