I think of the gender scan like the prom. The prom itself is kinda lame - the boys get drunk and don't want to dance, someone's boyfriend makes out with someone's best friend, etc., etc. The real excitement about prom is the anticipation. Is he going to ask me? What dress will I wear?
Once you find out the sex of the babe, sure, there's shopping. There's nursery planning. But it's mostly all about the wait now. Waiting for the babe to be born and then the suffering of sleepless nights and cracked nipples can begin.
So, try to enjoy the fun of not knowing. I know it feels like torture - but it really does give you something to look forward to that isn't months away...
Anyway, I have learned tons since my miscarriage last year. I learned all about gender swaying and ultrasonic gender determination - not to mention the early signs of pregnancy viability and a bunch of other info. I'm proud of myself - and you guys should be to. I am constantly amazed at how little people know about human reproduction let alone all of this stuff.
PS: GoingFor3 - I studied your nub shot. I zoomed in on the bits and I have no idea what you are talking about in terms of the spine. The spine is perfectly straight and the nub, when drawn in is complete.
