Hi all! I'm new here, and having a hard time dealing with my ultrasound results. I'm pregnant with our 4th, and desperately wanted a little brother for my boy. We tried everything! Position, timing, diet, etc. Based on my symptoms I was sure I got my boy (no morning sickness--I was sick with both my girls). So I was devastated when the ultrasound tech said girl at our scan on Friday.
We took the whole family with us because the kids were really excited to find out what we were having, and I got the feeling the tech was pretty irritated that my kids were there. She didn't let us see the monitor at all until the very end, and then it was just a couple minutes, a few pictures and she said, it looks like labia to me. After seeing the scans of my 2 daughters I agreed with her that it looked like a girl, but I wasn't positive, and I was so devastated I didn't ask her about how confident she was that it was a girl.
Of course, once we got home, all the "what ifs" started kicking in. So now I'm in denial I think. I need someone to tell me to just accept the fact that we are having 3 girls and only 1 boy. But there are 2 things that are bugging me--first of all, my younger brother had a VERY small penis when he was born (and my son wasn't exactly well endowed). Second, there are only 2 lines instead of the classic "cheeseburger" 3 lines. And it looks like there are 2 lines that are a little skinnier at the top and then 2 lines that are fatter at the bottom. So to my warped brain I keep saying, maybe the skinny part is a penis and the fatter part is a scrotum.
So if anyone can give me a reality check, that would be helpful! Or if I'm not crazy and there is a chance it's a boy, I'd love to know that too. I'm thinking about going and getting a private scan done in a few more weeks, even though we don't really have the money for it. I just want to KNOW! I appreciate any input, and would love to know if anyone has had a similar experience. My scan was taken at 19 w 4 d, if that helps...
I'm trying really hard to just be happy that the baby is healthy, but I'm having a hard time letting go of the boy thing.
Thanks so much everyone!
