I was thinking of doing the same thing at my ultrasound, have the sonographer put the gender in an envelope. However, if it does say 'girl', I'll want the proof so may have to ask him to put a toilet shot in the envelope too! Otherwise I'll probably just drive myself crazy.
I just have no idea how I'd react if he were to tell me boy, I'm scared to even think about it. With my 3 boys, I just knew they were boys and I wasn't the slightest bit surprised. Even though I was desperate for a girl before I fell pregnant with #3, those feelings left me as soon as I took the test. However with this one, I've never felt so overwhelmed with 'girl' feelings. Its been quite intense at times. I feel so strongly that its a girl, I'm sure I'd freak out if I'm told boy. So the envelope idea is probably the best option!! My goodness, I can't believe there was sound on your DVD...how terrible!!
And like you said, I know I'll fall in love with the little guy as soon as he's born...I think its just the 'loss' of not having the daughter I really thought I was having.
Did you have any 'gut feelings' with any of your pregnancies?
I'm not sure when my ultrasound is, they do one here in England at 20 weeks so probably middle of July. I really really hope we both hear pink!!!!!!
