Just thinking about the logistics!
I'm 90% sure we're going to have a 20-week anatomy scan, but don't want to know the sex. We REALLY DON'T want to know. So much so that, since we're kinda... meh... about seeing the u/s in general (wouldn't have one at all except for the potential health benefit), we will ask them to turn off the overhead screen so there will be no chance of our accidentally seeing for ourselves. Hey-- I know what to look for!
So, that part is a little different, but I am sure it's not so unusual for the u/s techs to be asked not to tell the sex. By my unscientific estimate, anywhere from 5-20% of the general population seems to want to keep it a secret.
So, my question is... If you made this request in previous pregnancies, how was it handled? Did you have to be super-vigilant in reminding them, or was it an easy request for them to accommodate? How did the tech/doctor respond, etc.?
