Nursery Question??

Hi ladies!  I've never posted on this board yet, I normally hang out on the March 2015 board.  I'm a STM due in March with a baby girl.  I have a 4 year old DS at home and we never found out the sex with him, so all of this planning beforehand is really different for me.  Last time, we did a Winnie the Pooh nursery and it worked either way.  I was really excited to find out last week that baby is perfectly healthy and a girl, but now my head is spinning.  I want to really enjoy the preparing the nursery stuff this time.  I want to avoid neutral stuff b/c it is really fun to buy the colored stuff this time.  Now my head is like, "what if this isn't a girl?"  The thought of getting everything ready to have to change it...is tiring! 
The u/s was done at 19 weeks at a maternal fetal medicine place (high risk dr and u/s tech).  The tech only looks at babies, no other ultrasounds and she said she doesn't make a guess if she isn't sure.  It was also a perfect in-between the leg shot.  It's pretty obvious when I look at it too.
Anyway...do you ladies go ahead and buy the clothes and get things ready for the sex they tell you and just hope they are right?  I probably won't have any other ultrasounds, unless their is a problem.  I'm not high-risk, just saw one for my a/s b/c of PPD med exposure.  Help me out, since I've never done this?

Thanks so much!

Re: Nursery Question??

  • For both my pregnancies, the tech will not say 100% but don't guess. There is always the possibility it's wrong but I trust they are right. I plan the nursery and buy clothes based on having a girl. With DD1 we did buy the big gear, car seat etc, neutral so if #2 was a boy we could reuse.

    If you want reassurance look into elective u/s places to get another look.

  • we found out at 20wks we were having a girl. i went ahead and got the nursery ready as such and then for my husband's birthday later on, we elected to have another 4d u/s done. confirming still dd was in fact dd not ds... i'd say you are good to go, but if you are that concerned wait a little bit longer and have an elective u/s done.

  • Thanks ladies!  I may have an elective u/s later on, but for now we will go ahead and plan for pink.  I had a friend of mine who is an u/s tech take a look too and she says girl as well.  Thanks for all your comments!
