DH and I had a second trimester ultrasound. Prior to having the ultrasound, DH said he wanted a boy, I would prefer a girl, but I would not have been disappointed if it were a boy. I acutally thought it was a boy. After losing a baby I am just happy when I hear a heartbeat and see it move on an ultrasound.
When the tech asked if she could tell us the gender, DH was so excited and we both said yes. The tech told us it was a girl. I was thrilled and DH immediately sat down in a chair with his head down. I asked the tech again if it was a girl and she said that is what it looked like and she showed me the three lines. The sne referred to the baby as a she during the duration of the ultrasound.
On the way home from the appointment DH looked so disappointed. DH has a daughter from a previous relationship and he wanted a son. For a moment I felt kind of bad for him.
This morning DH said that he had accepted that fact that we are having a girl. Well this afternoon he tells me that the tech may be wrong and there might be a chance that it could still be a boy.
I just wanted to hit him. I hope he overcomes his disappointment really soon.
