Told doc we didn’t want to know the sex and she said she wouldnt say a word. Then she b,urts out “oh, I see it!” and reconfirmed that she said “IT.” I mean, that has penis written all over it…we have anatomy scan next week and think we might reconsider team green, since I feel like we know.

I don’t think she gave anything away. I would consider her saying “I see it” to “I see the genital area”, not whether baby is male or female.
I think “it” could equally be “penis/scrotum” or “3 lines”.

“It” could mean the determining factors – that doesn’t necessarily mean boy.

Yeah, I wouldn’t assume boy… I would assume “I see it!” means “I can see what it is!”….
Hopefully if you decide to go team pink/blue you’ll have an answer next week… but if you go team green, I wouldn’t go buy a lot of blue just because of this! 🙂

This doesn’t read one way or the other to me either. If I were in your shoes, I think I would stay team green because “it” was likely just “I can see the right area.”

doctors are wrong sometimes, so even if they came right out and said boy/girl, you still may end up surprised. i know of a few couples who were 200% sure they were having a boy and then ended up with a girl. i saw a couple on a baby story that was prepared for twin boys and ended up with twin girls, lol.

@ctbridetobe: I am so not ready to be a mom. I thought that “I see it” meant she could actually see the baby. I was like, “it” is gender neutral! LOL

I agree with PP… When I first read through your post, I thought…”huh? how was it revealed?” Because I think she probably meant the genitals in general!

I thought she meant that by saying “it” a few times, she was reinforcing that she’s not revealing the baby’s sex. I didn’t think she was implying that she saw genitals.

I agree. The doctor that did my aunts Anatomy scan was 100% positive that they were having a little girl. They found out very quickly after delivery that it was in fact a little boy.

Unless your doctor said I see a Penis or Vagina no she did not reveal the sex of your baby. It can mean anything. I would really quit worrying about this situation

Yeah I’m with PPs I don’t think that is revealing.

Ok, good, I’m not the only one! hahaha I was like, wow how does everyone know what “it” means??

I also thought the same thing!
eta – I’m sure you are not the first patient to ask that gender be kept a surprise. The doc probably had tons of patients where he/she knows the gender and the parents don’t. I wouldn’t get worried/upset about this
