    Just want some opinions ladies.

    As some of you know my baby was in an awkward postion at my scan and i was convinced i was having a boy but the sonographer thought girl although she wasnt completly sure. Anyone else in this postion?

    I really wanted to be able to buy pink or blue things so now i dont know what to do am i being over dramatic, surely she would of said she couldnt tell if she was really unsure? :think:

    What would you do?

    I would buy pink stuff. Apparently it's much more common for you to be told it's a boy and then it turn out to be a girl because all babies have a bit of a willy in there to begin with - but MUCH less likely to be told you're having a girl and then it be a boy. I'm sure it still happens and there are people on here to whom it's happened!!!

    I am definitely buying pink stuff. PINK! PINK! PINK! :cheer:

    I went for a private scan at 16 weeks and the sonographer said we were having a girl... I was so shocked cus I was convinced the baby was a boy. Then a few minutes later, the sonographer thought she saw "something" down there, that could possibly have been a willy... Then she asked us to come back for another scan at 17 weeks cus she now wasnt 100% baby was a girl. We went back a week later and she could definately see a little willy and he was defo a boy!!

    They do say that mummy knows!

    I think you should get a private scan or it'll drive you bonkers!! It's a good excuse to see the bub again!

    I would buy neutral if you're not sure, maybe just buy a couple pink bits.
    I would have to have a private scan to find out for sure, the uncertainty would drive me nuts!
    Maybe it's a good way to justify a 4d :D

    I'd buy neutral too - but then I have to as I don't know what I am having even though I have a pink feeling

    I have the same predicament as you Bloom. Sonographer thought it could be a boy but said she wouldn't lay her life on it, so I am a bit in limbo too.

    To be honest I haven't bought a lot yet anyway, but am gonna stay pretty neutral and then go mad with pink or blue once baby is here.

    I get another scan at 34 weeks so am hoping they might be able to tell me then, would you consider a private scan to find out?

    A private scan is out of the question as oh does not want a 3d/4d scan for various reasons and no where locally does private scans except one place which wanted £150 for a 2d gender one which im not paying as its overpriced.

    I was getting most of the things i need in neutral anyway and the nursery is neutral so i think i will buy some pink bits later on and then i can take them back if needs be.

    Its horrible being in limbo land. Although i do feel like its a girl now and im carrying all round i will see how i feel later on.

    I like not knowing - my hospital doesn't tell you anyway but I didn't want to know.

    :shock: That's rediculously overpriced! Normally a 2d would only cost about £70! :shock:

    At least they tell you guys!! In Aberdeen Hospital they don't tell you the sex of the baby anymore. Something to do with people suing them for getting it wrong I think... So we have to pay to find out the sex it's so unfair!!!

    I would buy neutral clothes for now xxx

    Where do you live Bloom? There's lots of new private places cropping up all the time. I had a gender scan at 18 weeks, cost £120 with dvd and loads of photos but you can get much cheaper options for around £65 if you shop around :)
