I've been on the fence about an ultrasound. It's been a very difficult pregnancy and seeing my baby would likely convince me it's all for a good reason! After having severe cramping on my right side and unable to attribute it to anything, my dr. ordered an ultrasound for today in 2 hours. Overnight I was able to attribute the severe cramping to digestive issues, so the reason for the ultrasound is now void. Now I'm on the fence about having it- I could, and I'm sure I'd be reassured about the toughness of the pregnancy. OTOH, my dh says if we get an ultrasound, he wants to know the gender, something I am adamantly, completely against (for me)!! I told him I don't mind him finding out, so long as he does NOT tell me or anyone else (bc everyone has to tell someone, and so forth, and it would get back to me), but he said he can't promise it won't slip out- and I know he's being honest, but I can't stand the thought of that happening. What would you do?
