I'm almost at my due date and didn't want to know the sex. I've had 4 scans so far and looked away at the last 3. However at my last as we were leaving the room my husband glanced over at the screen they were taking measurements on and saw something about female. Do they make a record of it even if they don't tell you?
I had my scans overseas, but they all say "female" on them, and I've definitely got one son and one daughter! I did ask about it, and they said it is my sex, (they also pointed out it had my date of birth and name...!). Apparently they used the same equipment for all types of ultrasound, so sometimes used it on men, hence the info being on the scan.
But as I say, this was overseas and it may be different here - I've never had a UK ultrasound. I imagine it could be the same reason though.
Yep the female that is being referred to is you- if you look at most ultrasound printouts it will have your hospital details across the top and f for female too - as the machines can be used for scanning other body parts and also require patient data to be entered prior to scanning
