I had my anatomy scan today too, and I am also disappointed - because they wouldn't tell me the sex. Blah! I had a trainee, who took FOREVER which bugged me because I'm not exactly pro-ultrasound in the first place. And then due to the technicality of the requisition form from my midwife not specifying that they COULD tell me, she said I'd have to wait to see my midwife. My next appt. is 6 weeks away!
A phone call or two is in order tomorrow...
Otherwise everything sounded super normal and good (from what the tech was relaying to the trainee). So that's obviously a huge plus!
I'm sorry some of you are struggling with mixed feelings and disappointments. For what it's worth, when I was pregnant with my first I was absolutely set on having a girl because I had absolutely no clue what to do with a boy! Then, quite honestly, my break through moment was in Wal-Mart, seeing that boys have some rrreeeaaallllyyy cute clothes. Then I was like "Okay, I can do this!" Turned out he was a boy :) then for the second boy I was gung-ho - I know what I'm doing!
And then our girl has just been such a wonderful joy. They're all unique and I have loved them equally (but differently) during each pregnancy.
It's true, there are lots of ideas imposed upon children to be one way or another, but seriously you could not keep my boys away from anything with wheels. It's just built into them, despite them loving the colour pink, to play "kitchen", play with their dolls etc. And my girl plays with the train sets and Tonka trucks just as much as her brothers, while picking out dresses to wear. It all balances out :)
