Originally the cry for a mid-pregnancy ultrasound was all about the health of the baby. When it was first started, learning if you were having a girl or boy wasn't even a part of it. Then that changed and moms started to be given this information. While the medical did not bear out the true benefit for every mom to need an ultrasound in mid-pregnancy, women really wanted, saying it was totally about the health of the baby, nothing more.
As it's become easier and easier to give an accurate assessment of the sex of a baby, you hear more about the sex of the baby, than baby's health. In fact, I see more and more moms posting that they have scheduled an ultrasound to find out if the baby is a boy or girl, than to learn if baby is healthy. I have even seen moms talk about how annoyed they were that the ultrasound technicians did other assessments first, before getting to the big reveal.
So why did you agree to the mid-pregnancy ultrasound? Or were you one of the few that skipped it?
