I got a letter in the post today from the hospital telling me that the next scan will be on the 2nd of February and that if we wish to know, they will tell us the gender. The hospital used to have a policy about not telling you the gender, and they would make you shell out something like £60 for a special gender scan. So for reasons only known to them, they've changed their minds, which is fine by me. This means that we'll get a second opinion on Beanie's gender, almost three weeks after the student scan. The poor kid will be traumatised if s/he finds out how closely scrutinised her/his bits have been - and then having it documented on the Internet.
I promise not to haul out embarrassing bath photos when you bring your first date home.
