gender scans or not?
Apr 4, 2008 12:49PM
Are most of you finding out the sex of your baby? At the moment I am thinking that I would really like it to be a surprise, and find out when my lo actually enters the world for the first time. Anyone else saving it until B-Day? xx

Before I got pregnant I thought it would be nice to wait. But I just got too impatient and had to find out, so we asked at the 20 week scan. They only gave us an estimate which is annoying but we found out for certain at our 4D scan and I don't think it has taken any of the magic away at all. It was irritating that everyone kept asking why were we finding out, what a shame etc (although those who keep it a surprise probably get people nagging you to find out, so you can't win!) xxxx

Hmmm, thanx guys. I will prob decide nearer the time. Ages to wait yet!
TigerLily, is it obvious at a 4d scan, or if you tell them you dont want to know will they steer clear of that area? (can they steer clear with baby moving around!

We're not going to find out. Hubby is quite firm that he wants a surprise, even though I could easily be persuaded to find out. I don't get a 20 wks scan in Edinburgh so I have to wait now anyway (although we'll prob get a private one just to check everything is OK) Suz x

I'm the same as Suz, don't get the 20 week scan so would need to go private, hubby doesn't want to know so will have to wait and see.

Hi, with DS1 we didn't find out and it was lovely having a surprise - with DS2 we found out the hospital told us and with the one we've moved town and their policy was not to tell so we really wanted to know and paid for a babybond gender scan ??75 and it was brilliant - I didn't believe the lady though when she said a girl as we have 2 boys and just thought it would be a boy again - our hospital recently changed it's policy and at 20wk scan confirmed a little girl - I would say if it was my first I wouldn't want to know but it's nice to plan ahead buying things 2nd / 3rd time around and I'm a bit impatient so wanted to know along with hubby.
all the best, chelle

They mainly show you the face so I wouldn't worry. They only look 'down below' if you ask...I guess if baby was lying strange and the sonographer accidentally got a shot of it they would prob say close ur eyes! xxxx

I wanted to know but oh doesn't and I know that if this is a girl I won't be able to contain myself so I've banned myself from asking.

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
