An epic birth story. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. I finally got my little girl like me. With number three, we found out purely because we needed something positive. On the day, however, we both got swept up in the excitement of the scan and all that went out the window — we just found out there and then.
Of course, another big con to finding out the sex of your baby is the lack of surprise. Contact author Message sent.
We know there are other combinations besides xx and Xy and we know some babies are intersex. Ultra sounds aren't always right, we've all heard the stories but I do in fact know someone who was told by multiple techs she was having a boy.
It took us 3 years, one miscariage and several fertility treatments to realise we probably would never have children. Three days before I found out I was pregnant with my first baby, in an example of worst-timing-ever, I quit my job. The Fear setting in?
And as you pointed out, we know the sex that the doctor assigns it's a boy! I definitely had a preference I was hoping for a girlso finding out helped me bond with my little boy before he arrived. It would be really, really hard though. Going viral today.
So fiery he would throw a towering tantrum if his toast was cut in the wrong shape!
Ask the expert. Even during my first pregnancy when we knew we were having a boy I got all my big stuff bedding, swing, bouncer in gender neutral colors. I am a huge planner and like having all my ducks in a row.
