Gender Surprise AGAIN - Storytime

Hello lovelies!

Thought I would give you guys a little update on my life. As you probably already know I'm a teenage mummy-to-be just over 5 months pregnant with my first baby. Last week I had my 20 week scan which means I was meant to find out the gender of my baby. I was very excited when I was told I'm having a little girl. My boyfriend was also very happy as it's what he wanted all along. However, me being me with my '6th sense' I couldn't shake off the feeling that something wasn't right. I went ahead and bought girl's clothes, some new and some second-hand including 4 black bags of pre-loved items (yes...4 bags). So this feeling kept creeping back onto me to the point that it wasn't letting me sleep and kept me up at night.

I felt like that sonographer gave me wrong information and that I wasn't carrying a girl after all. I wanted reassurance. I kept having the feeling that I'm going to give birth to a boy. I was nagging my boyfriend for a couple of days until Monday night I told him I can't deal with it anymore, that I couldn't sleep and that I want a private scan. Bare in mind this was at 11pm at night. To keep me quiet he agreed. He was still 100% convinced we were having a girl and was saying that we are just spending money for me to see what we already know. We went ahead and found a place that took online bookings. Monday at 11pm we booked me an appointment for Tuesday at 9:50 for a private gender scan. I was still extremely stressed/anxious but also very excited that I will finally find out the truth.

Although the scan cost us 40 pounds it was only 5 mins. Honestly, it was the best 40 quid we ever spent. The lady had no hesitation telling me ''You're having a boy''. I was gobsmacked! I didn't know what to think or feel or say. I was happy to finally know for sure (after seeing his man parts there is no doubt! He's a proud boy!) but I was also so upset and sad that we were told the wrong thing and if it wasn't for my gut we would of went ahead buying everything for a girl for the rest of my pregnancy just to then have a boy. I was annoyed at the fact that we had a gender reveal party for our family where we popped a balloon with pink confetti, we announced it on facebook and thought we got what we wanted. Don't get me wrong, we love our baby no matter what it is. If we were told its a boy at the original scan we would of been just as happy as we were for a girl. What upset us is the fact that we were victims of an unprofessional and unskilled man that rather tell us what he ''thinks'' it is without being sure. I would of very much preferred if he told us he's sorry and that he can't see and advised us to have a private scan instead.

Now we have to exchange the new items which isn't hard. What's harder is getting rid of the second-hand stuff which I now have to sell on. We also already bought personalised dummy clips with the name we were planning to give our girl. Now we have to put them away hoping we will get a chance to use them in the future and that we didn't spend money for nothing. They weren't expensive but that's not the point. We shouldn't have been in this situation!

In conclusion, we are now very happy and proud to have a big bouncy boy (he's so active in there). We're busy trying to sell the items we bought and a little annoyed having to call/message every friend/family member telling them what has happened. I can't even tell you how many times I've said ''there has been a mistake. Our little girl is now a little boy''. One thing that is making me feel better (other than my little man giving me those little kicks) is the fact that my gut told me well and we found out now instead of in the delivery room like many people previously have.

I don't blame the hospital, I'm still very excited to go there and give birth. I think the hospital and staff is amazing. Well, everyone so far except for that guy. I contacted the hospital and told them about what happened in order to prevent situations like this in the future. I don't know if they passed the feedback back to the man or not but at least he's not my problem anymore. Hopefully he won't make that mistake again.

Like you've probably heard before - the mother always knows best!!!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you found my story-time entertaining to at least some extent. I'm sure I will be soon laughing about it.

Right now I'm trying to concentrate on bonding with my blue bump and preparing for my prince.

Lots of love guys!
