I have to have a bazillion ultrasounds because I'm high risk, so I try not to worry about it. None of the concerns I've read about have much evidence to substantiate them. I have already had at least 7 ultrasounds so far this pregnancy, and it looked like a boy at 13 weeks, but it was with an ancient ultrasound machine that's not the clearest, and it was a bit early to be completely sure, so we're going to find out for sure tomorrow. I have had all boys so far and would be over the moon to find out it's a girl, but I'll just be happy to get a live baby out of all of this misery, really. I'll have a level II ultrasound/fetal echo in early December, but I really wanted to find out the sex for sure before we go out of town for Thanksgiving. We'll be visiting my sister, and she still has some boy stuff left that she will give me, but I don't want to take any of the super boyish stuff if it's a girl. It would just take up space and would be too expensive to ship back to her so she can sell it. It would be nearly impossible not to find out the sex when I have to have so many ultrasounds, unless I just don't look at them, but I figure if I have to have them, getting to see the baby is a nice perk, so no way am I not going to look!
