Hello! We have been team green all pregnancy. We are due in 2 weeks, I recently had a morning with far less fetal movement than usual. Labor and Delivery told me to come in so they could put me on the monitor.
After getting hooked up by a few nurses a doctor whom I hadn’t met yet came in the room and said “Hello! So do we have a name picked out for this little girl yet?!” To which I replied “…no”.
I was so caught off guard but she continued on using she/her the whole conversation. I couldn’t bring myself to mention I didn’t know the gender.
Then an hour later a nurse who I hadn’t met before came in while unstrapping my monitors looked and said “you’re having a girl, right?” And I said “we don’t know” she replied “”oh…..I’ll just refer to her as a she since I already did.”
Now I’m going crazy wondering if they spoiled it or not!!
Re: Did Labor & Delivery Dr Spoil Gender?!
From my experience and told from my ultrasound tech - the sex is not recorded in your records. Unless things changed since then.
I honestly would have exploded at the doctor and nurse- whether girl or not it was very unprofessional.
They may have spoiled it, but honestly I would just keep it behind you abd as soon as anyone walks in the room for now on, immediately tell them we do not know the sex, please do not say!
