Sometime between my 1st and my 2nd I read a blog post from a woman who was upset because at the 20 week ultrasound she found out that something might be wrong with her baby, but no one was asking her, "So, is your baby OK?" They were only asking, "So, boy or girl?"

Since then (even before my loss) I try to ask other women first if baby looks healthy before asking about the sex.

For me, the ultrasound that diagnosed the miscarriage will forever change me so that I'm nervous instead of excited for ultrasounds. I know that I'm going to cry either way for my 7 week ultrasound next week--cry (from relief) if there is a heartbeat, cry if there isn't.
