One Mom Shares How Her Ultrasound Was Wrong

By December 14, 2012

Girl or Boy Dice

The ultrasound is considered fool proof when it comes to the answer of girl or boy? The fact is, it's not. Here's Mary Beth's story:

"We had a 16 week 'gender' reveal ultrasound and followed with a 'gender' reveal party with friends and family... at that time we were having a girl (Ellie). At my 20 week ultrasound we discovered that she was a 'he'.... I'm certainly not 'disappointed' - I want a happy healthy baby regardless. But, I'm struggling b/c I feel like I've lost my baby girl. It's especially hard when friends and family say things like 'aww so sad I really wanted you to have a girl.' I'm thinking therapy is in my future."

This is a different take on gender disappointment. Have you had something like this happen to you?
