    ITS A BOY!

    Heres the story: Sorry its long

    I was in for a scan today because i was told the baby had something near the heart that was unidentifiable. Ive been so worried for the past 2 3 weeks waiting for this scan to come up. Thankfully everything looks fine on screen .. it was such a relief. Than came the surprise - the consultant than asked me if i wanted to know the sex - n of course i was taken aback because at my scan at 18wks i asked to know n i got told "We have a no tell policy".

    So i said yeah ... n shes like its a boy ... n i asked are u sure .. so when she goes to show me she couldnt find the boy bits? baby had changed position - n shes like oh maybe it was just the cord getting in the way , now im not so sure ... maybe its a girl. She than finished her tests n said ill send someone else n maybe they can confirm it one way or the other for you.

    The second consultant was coming in to just doublecheck the heart position - which she said was fine - and she than confirmed it was a boy showing me a penis.

    I have two girls already so as you can imagine i am on :cloud9:
    But im still thinking .. what are the chances she may be wrong?

    Main thing though was that the baby looked healthy ... im so relieved!

    Congratulations on your blue bump!
    I reckon if 2 of them are confident it's a boy, then it is.

    :hug:

    I honestly dont know ... it caught me by surprise too but i thought hey if theyre offering to tell. The second person who came in , after telling me did say im telling you because Ann (1st consultant) asked me to confirm this but we have a no tell policy at this hospital.

    That was really nice of them

    My guess is the sonographer has a heart, knew you'd been worrying about LO & decided to make you smile :D

    She was really nice ... went over everything in so much detail - she had two girls herself like me, n was saying to me she would love a little boy as her husband has always dreamed of having one. She did ask what i prefered n too be honest at the time all that was going through my head was that i wanted baby to be healthy. It was only towards end she had this grin on her face n said would you like to know.
    I was so chuffed - it was so unexpected.
