Is it too late to find out sex?

At my 20 week scan we decided not to find out sex, we are now wishing we had (31 weeks) do they make a note on hospital notes of the sex, or is it too late to find out now?

As far as I know, they do not note it down anywhere (to avoid being sued if they make a mistake presumably ?). Can you afford a private scan ?

The scanner will probably not have looked if you didn't ask. Even if they had seen, it wouldn't be in the notes. The only way to find out would be to get a private scan.

Oh ok thanks, don't think we'll bother with private scan, we'll go with a suprise like the other 2, don't really mind what it is either, just curiosity getting better of us now.

I think the baby will be all squashed up so would be hard to see the sex.

Not long nowsmile

Good thing too! If you put babies in the wrong colour car seat they would DEFINITELY die if you were to crash.

it was a brand new seat with the tags still on,wouldnt have been able to sell it as new if i'd used it,

It's a fair point, but you also had a narrow escape there; did you know that the essence of gay - the colour pink - can actually leach through two layers of cotton and a nappy and turn your baby into a homosexual?
