Hello all! I am new to the boards so I'll introduce myself. I'm 27 yrs old, been married for 2 yrs to a wonderful man, am the mommy to 8 yr old Falyn and am pregnant with baby #2. I'm so glad to find boards with other mommy's that I can discuss things with and hope to get to know you all.
I am 22 weeks pregnant and when I went for my 20 week U/S, the tech showed us three tiny but very distinct white lines that she was pretty confident indicated a girl. (Secretly I would love to have another girl.) We have a very good picture of this from beneath and the three lines are all I see. Before the U/S though, I had such strong feelings that this one was a boy just because this pregnancy has been so different than my first with my daughter. Although it has been 8 yrs. so I guess my body would have changed quite a bit. Then when I started getting used to the fact that I really believed this one is a girl, I start reading different message boards about U/S accuracy and find that many people have been told one sex only to have another, or have been shown the little white lines only to be greeted by a son at birth. Don't get me wrong, I will be happy with either (my dh and I tried for 2 yrs to get pregnant), I just don't want to bond with a daughter then have it turn out to be a son. The hospital here offers free "sex checks" 3 weeks after the first ultrasound just to be sure so my appointment for that is this coming Monday. My question is this. Have any of you experienced anything like this, or know anyone who has? Any advice would be appreciated, you know how irrational and hormonal a pregnant woman can be.
