  • Yes but she didn't tell me. I have just seen so many of them that when she was measuring the leg, there it was and I knew what it was.

  • my husband and i told our tech that we didnt want to know and she said she will "try" and not say anything. well not even 2 minutes later she goes and zooms in and says its a ..... and i said we didnt want to know and she completely ignored me and then just kept pointing out what it was. some of our friends know that we know but dont know how to tell our family that we know the gender.

  • yep. with baby #2. i told the tech that we didn't want to know and she said "well the doc has to know" so she found out and wrote it in my file. then at my next doc's appointment, before I even walked in the room, she says "hi, how great, you are having a boy!." I said, I'll pretend I didn't hear you b/c I didn't want to find out. she apologized profrusly but it was too late. throughout the rest of my pregnancy, I tried to shop nuetral, but i would tell myself, who am i kidding, i'm having a boy.

    so with babies # 3 and 4, i 1st made sure it was a different doctor and made sure that tech would not find out or write it down anywhere or would have refused u/s.

  • atleast the doctor apologized my tech just ignored us she seemed to think that my husband and i should know b/c she pointed it out atleast 5 more times. im finding it pretty easy shopping in yellow and greens.

  • We wanted to know but she never even asked us and then blurted out that he was a boy and then back peddled and said, crap..I guess i should have asked you if you wanted to know. Im so sorry. That happened to us at 2 diff ultrasounds. Good thing we already wanted to
