I had decided before I was even pregnant that I didn't want to know the sex of the baby -- in fact, I figured that I would probably not even have an ultrasound during pregnancy (though I did have one at 7 1/2 weeks because my midwives thought my hcg levels were strange - turns out all is well!). But lately, both my hubby and I have been rethinking this, so now I'm considering finding out baby's sex.
But, of course, there's a more important question I need to answer first -- do I even want the 20-week ultrasound? I'm not comfortable with having an ultrasound just to find out the baby's sex, so I feel like I really need to consider the pros and cons of the ultrasound and decide first whether I even want it. Then we can figure out the sex question.
Does anyone have thoughts about this? It seems that almost everyone has an 20-week ultrasound -- is anyone NOT doing that? I want to make sure that, if I do it, it's for the right reasons -- not just to find out baby's sex.
