Does anybody else get nervous before their 18-20 week sono?

I remember with my daughter I didn't sleep the night before. I have my 18 sono with my 2nd child today and I feel so nervous. I guess it is the anticipation of finding out the gender, I don't know. Anybody else like this?

  • My 18 - 20 week sono was about the 10thone I had with my twins. At that point, they were routine. I had a hematoma in my uterus and was getting them every or every-other week.

    I think I was a bit excited with my 1st pregnancy, but it was my 3rd sono with DD and we didn't want to know her sex.  After 2 years of TTC, we just wanted a healthy baby.

  • Yes, I got nervous and so did my DH, it is pretty normal. I think I just couldn't wait to see that everything was okay. But, what a relief when you see that beautiful baby and all is just fine. good luck.

  • I get nervous about all of the tests. For me, I get the most nervous about the GD screening. The ultrasound, I'm excited, but always nervous they'll find something wrong. I have to seriously calm myself for those types of things. I actually wish I would have refused the 20 week anatomy scan this time. It created more tension than it was worth.
