I am wondering if anyone has been told they are having a boy at a gender ultrasound, and ended up having a girl?
We went to our ultrasound last Thursday, and the technician showed us a potty shot ( the bum) to show what could be a scrotum and penis. The only concern I have is that it also appears to have the three line "M" shape.. Only just enlarged, and possibly swollen. It protrudes from the body which is why I could understand why she said a boy, but I have also read that sometimes the hormones in a pregnancy can cause the genitals to swell and create confusion.
Had anyone heard of this happening?
The reason I am asking, is because we already have a 3.5 year old son, who also has mild to moderate Autism. We were willing to try again now that he is making progress, but we were secretly hoping for a girl to hopefully miinimize the chances of having another child with Autism. We are thrilled after three years of "trying to conceive" we are finally pregnant. We are super excited for another boy, and would love our child regardless.
My other question is, has anyone had a first child with Autism, to have a second without? Particularily a boy...
Another concern we have about determining the proper sex is to prepare accordingly. Our families only help for the bare minimum so we would like to start stocking up on clothes where we can.
