Hi Ladies,

Curious with any recent experiences at ST.B and ultrasounds. All my ultrasounds in the past were in the fetal assessment department where family could attend and during the anatomy scan we were told the sex immediately. Now I am being sent to the second floor ultrasound department with no family allowed during the exam and they may put the sex of the baby in a report to the Doctor. Feels like I am going backwards in time. Are they less trained in that department, is it because I am considered low risk this time?

Any thoughts or experiences? Thanks!

Low risk would go to regular ultrasound where its performed by a technician so they cannot tell you anything. Fetal assessment , its done by a nurse so she can tell you medical things.

Thanks, so impatient having to have to wait for the doctors report..... And not having family Or even a visual while they are performing the u/s seems so odd now. And paying for a picture! Wow was i spoiled before for sure!
Oh well long as baby is healthy will eventually find out the sex anyway!!

Update,

 

Had my scan, I find it odd that they will show me the lips and nose, and kidneys and heart etc, but ovaries or testicles are NOT allowed.

 

Wha? and Why?

 

PS I will eventually find out, why all the secrecy hahahahaha
