Anatomy scan tomorrow- I'm so scared :/

Hi ladies, 

Tomorrow is not only my DS's 2nd birthday, but our 20-week ultrasound to find out what this little squid is. 

My heart, instinct, and all OWTs have pointed to girl (I was a daughter so badly it literally hurts), but the NT scan tech guessed "boy" at 12w5d. She was an experienced midwife/US tech who works at a perinatal center so I am scared she was correct. 

I cry now when I think it's a boy because I might not ever have my daughter. Hubby and I don't know about having three, with the costs associated with children (especially college, yuck). 

How do I cope tomorrow if I hear that it's another boy? I don't want to lose it at the hospital, or be sad all day when I'm at home with my son on his big day. I feel awful!

Awe, its okay, I think its normal to be a lil disapointed but itll be short lived. Plus since u already have a ds, itll have its pros to have another ds. But hugs...and gl...wishing pink baby dust for u!!

Don't be upset. Be thrilled you have another healthy child growing inside you.

You should be glad as long as that child is healthy. We just found out our 7th is a boy. Which makes 1 girl, 6 boys. Every sign in the book pointed to a girl. I will truthfully tell you I cried when she told me it was another boy. But now we are very glad just to have another baby that is healthy

You get over it and be thankful you have a healthy baby.

An ultrasound cant even guess the sex at 12 weeks, because the genitals havent developed enough to distinguish between the two yet. Good luck.

I was nervous my second would be a boy! We had a daughter, this is our last and I just didn't feel like I was a boy mom. But you know what? It WAS a boy. When he came out? Honestly, not so cute. Lol but ow he's ridiculously cute. Wiggled his way into my heart within days and now I can't imagine life without him. 

Whoever they are? Imagine if you had a miscarriage right now? You would be devastated. You get who you are meant to get.

 It is okay to be disappointed. You will get over it. I wanted nothing more in life than to have a daughter this time.  Instead, I got my 5th son and I couldn't possibly love him more.  He is perfect.  You will be okay.  I have been through this the last 3 pregnancies. You will get over it quickly and when you see that baby, you won't care anymore.

Gender disappointment is normal. Just let yourself be sad for a while and move forward knowing you have a healthy baby.
