Hi my 20 week scan is going to be done by fetal medicine (missed birth anomalies in previous pregnancy) but does anyone know if they will tell us the sex at this scan if we ask? I know for the most part if you can find out at 20week scan but what if it’s done by fetal medicine (consultant scan)? Thanks
The doctor doing our 20 week scan for DC2 was really disappointed that we did not want to know. I think they will tell you. Also, DC1's 20 week scan in the maternity scanning dept was just a few minutes, but DC2's was an hour long. They are more likely to be able to see as they are scanning for longer.
We were referred to fetal medicine because the anomaly scan picked up a problem. We had been told she was probably a girl at initial scan and after he outlined her problem and I stopped crying I remembered I'd forgotten to get him to double check boy/girl so I asked if he had noticed and he said he didn't look but took me back into the scanning room and turned the machines back on to check. What a lovely thing to do and only took a few minutes. We had regular scans and he always 'doubled checked' but told us he doesn't offer refunds! She is a girl!
Thanks everyone the hospital said their policy isn't to tell gender when I had my daughter but that was 13 years ago so I'm hoping it's changed now and I wasn't sure as it wasn't just standard scan. We will book 4d scan if they can't tell us or see what it is but if I don't have to spend money that could buy many nappies and wipes I'd prefer not to. Has anyone heard of the nub theory and would like to take a guess? We can't agree in our house lol x
