16 week Gender scan

Has anybody been able to book a private 16 week Gender/reassurance scan? After being told a few weeks ago that the private clinic we used for the Nuchal scan would do one, they are now saying they won't. I really really really want to find out!

Are you not having a 20 week scan on the NHS? They can tell you the sex then. Or can you not wait that long :snigger:

Yep precisely that Mrs J! I dunno, I think what with having had boys and a girl, I just really want to know. Dh wants to know badly too, I guess we are just the ultimate impatient parents!

Ooh I'm glad I'm not the only one! When I had my other kids it just wasn't allowed to find out whether you were having a boy or a girl so it was never an issue, but now, well technology has advanced! I'd just love to be able to go out and by a girlie outfit or a cute little boy one, and to start thinking seriously about a name for this little being.

Hi

I must say ladies we are being very patient - we are gonna wait and get a surprise. I'm being buying things in creams and whites.

Here in Glasgow you only get another scan after around 13 weeks if your bloods come back as having a risk of downs or you have a fall or something. I personally have had 3 scans to date and got to hear hb twice with doppler. I like these things so much I have decided to rent one haha. Must be careful not to get too para with it though as bubs can hide when they feel like it - as advised by midwife today.

Mrs Smiff - you are one impatient lady haha.

Lol good for you girl! It's must be so nice to buy stuff for your little one now you know he's a boy, rather than having to stick to neutral stuff. I was in Mothercare the other day and I have to confess I bought a couple of very cute boy things. They were just too cute not to go for it! But then, I think with pink socks they'd look fine on a girl too! Don't think my baby's going to be in any position to complain anyway!
