Up until recent years, women had no way of knowing if they were having a boy or a girl until they actually gave birth. Now we have ultrasounds that can tell us what the gender is well before we ever meet the little one. Some people still choose not to know, however, and keep it a surprise to the end. I am not one of those people. I was so anxious to know, and was thrilled when I found out I am having a girl. I was also thrilled to be able to refer to my baby as “she” instead of “it.”
I was even tempted to pay money and find out early. There are many places you can go to get an early ultrasound, fetal foto is one of them. You can get amazing pictures and videos of your baby moving around, which is pretty neat!
One of the downsides to finding out the gender, is that it is not 100% accurate. Depending on your technician, the equipment used, and how far along you are, you may or may not get a correct reading. This doesn’t happen all that often, but it does! One of my friends was told all along that she was having a girl, because there didn’t seem to be “anything there.” But come delivery day, she had a boy!
If you are pregnant or have been pregnant, what did you do? If you found out, was it accurate? And for those who aren’t pregnant, what are you planning on doing? Have any good horror stories?
