Team Green - AS Scan Question

Did you announce right away to the technician that you didn't want to know the sex?  I don't want to sound obnoxious?but I feel like if I don?t announce it to them right away they will slip.

Re: Team Green - AS Scan Question

  • It's recommended that you say it ASAP. I recommend it too! If you want to stay team green speak up!

  • My doctor told me to tell them right away and at every ultrasound.  That way they don't say anything and don't write it in the chart (so the doc never knows either).  Mine is in Feb, can't wait!!  Good luck with yours!

  • Our tech asks before you even sit down. But, if yours doesn't then yes you should speak up right away. And at every ultrasound.


  • Yes, tell them the minute you walk in the door.
  • Thanks everyone

  • With dd the tech asked us right away.  She then asked if we wanted it in our chart or not in case we changed our minds, to which we also said no.

    If we go this time and then don't ask right away, I'll tell them even before I have the gel on my belly!

  • I didn't think to mention it right away, because I was so focused on not peeing my pants...LOL.  The tech did all of the measurements and then asked if I wanted to know the gender.  I declined and she handed me a towel to clean off all of the gel.  Since i have to get u/s every 4 weeks, I will be telling them right away, because I'm afraid they will slip at some point.

    It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

  • I agree with others to tell them right away. Additionally I would recommend turning away when they first put the wand on...just in case they get the money shot.

    Yup that. With DS I saw immediately even though the tech said nothing.

  • I will have to tell my drs too because last time I saw them I was on the fence about finding out.  Now I am sure we are team green.

  • They asked me at the beginning, but if they hadn't asked I would've told them right away.

    Even though the tech knew we were team green, the gender is very clear in DD's ultrasound video (now that I know what I'm looking for). Good thing I was clueless at the time, lol.  

    This time we're team finding out, so it doesn't matter. :)

  • My tech always asks first, but if you are concerned, say something.

  • I'd tell them right away but just an FYI with DS it was blatantly obvious that he was a boy. We were team find out so it didn't matter anyways. As soon as he showed up on the screen it was a full on shot of his junk. No mistaking it.

  • I totally didn't think to mention it every time. We go on the 16th to one we could find out so planned on bringing it up at that one, but hadn't thought that every one after that.

  • At the last u/s I had the tech told me to remind them every time so they don't slip up.

  • I would tell them right away, but our tech asked us right when we walked in, and then again before she looked at the genitals.
