I finally had my 19 week ultrasound today, Fiance have been really looking forward to finding out the gender of our little baby but it looks like we have a stubborn baby on the way. He/she had the umbilical cord between its legs the whole time and the tech couldn’t see anything, he said his guess was as good as ours lol Good news (and most important thing obviously) is that baby is completely healthy and developing perfectly so we are of course thrilled!
Have any of you other ladies been unable to see the gender at their mid pregnancy ultrasound? Did you decide to just become team green and wait for the surprise or try and find another way to find out (i.e. elective ultrasound to find out gender)? We have a 3D ultrasound already booked for November since Fiance has been unable to come to any of my other appts due to work (3D we can book for the weekend) and we want the photos for a keepsake. I’m debating whether we want to try and find out again at the next one or since we’ve waited this long just wait for the surprise at delivery!
Thanks ladies 🙂

I would take this as a sign to stay team green! I’m team green and so excited for delivery day!

Wait and see how you feel in November. If you and Fiance feel like you have been DYING to know still, find out. If not, dont 🙂 You’ll find out eventually, either way haha.

FutureMrs.Cammack: I agree with wait and see! I had my anatomy scan at 19 weeks too, and while the tech was able to make a solid guess, the baby was wiggling enough that she didn’t feel 100% confident. I am having another scan tomorrow at 23 weeks along with my usual appointment just to confirm. I personally want to prepare and be able to get some girly or boy things, but being team green seems fun too!

I think I’d wait, but I’m not in that position because I had the harmony test and found out at 14 weeks. My doctor is really anti-elective/keepsake ultrasound so I’m limiting my exposure to nuchal and anatomy scans and doppler at doctor’s visits if I can help it.

knpswp: That’s kinda what we were thinking! Part of me thinks the anticipation will make the delivery more exciting (and keep me extra motivated lol)
whitums: We were that kind of couple too, I am such a type A person always wanting to be prepared but it seems like our little one had other plans for us! 🙂
Scou: Knowing us we’ll both be dying to find out by then! Fiance can hardly wait he was so disappointed when they couldn’t find out lol

FutureMrs.Cammack: my daughter played coy at our 18 week ultrasound. She was in the middle of a nap with her legs crossed and she didn’t want to be bothered lol. We came back at 22 weeks and found out her gender.

Personally, I’ve loved being Team Green, so that’s my vote! I didn’t have another ultrasound, after my anatomy scan, until I was 36 weeks and at that point, you’re so close it’s more fun to wait until delivery. But if you guys still want to know in November, then go try to find out at the 3D scan!

Hehe how cute. Looks like it doesn’t want you to know! Better that than getting it wrong (happened to friends of ours). Expected girl, came out a boy.
