    Yes! We went to one of those fun scans for my first pregnancy. Even though we told the lady it was a surprise she have it away in the first 5mins! She then tried to completely cover it up but she was a very bad liar. We still went on thinking she just said "he" because she always calls babys that apparently but ....Ds was born a few weeks later. I guess they are so use to people finding out. This time it was a complete surprise and we made sure of it

    I think that most sonographers say he.. Even if baby isn't a boy. I had a scan at 6 weeks, 10 weeks & 12 weeks with DS and they kept saying he... Even though they didn't know the sex.
    I had a scan at 7.5 weeks this time around and again, they kept saying he.

    We did not want to know the gender and it was always made clear that this was our preference during scans.

    Not once did any sonographer ruin the surprise for us.

    We would have been really p!ssed off they did!

    Totally! I was pi$$ed for quite a while. In some ways though I truly did get a surprise but not her place to play games like that.

    My sonography was saying "he" even though she said 70% chance a girl (this was only 13 wks). Just think about baby books and even adverts that refer to babies of both sex as just he or just she.

    My sonographer always says 'bub', bub is measuring this length or there is bub's foot etc. Much safer on all accounts.

    We requested to know the gender but even before they looked the sonographer was referring to bub as 'he' so I guess they just use it generically rather than say "it".

    my OB done my scans every appointment and I would always say we don't want to know! And he was always including my ds who was 5 at the time as he was my OB for him too. As we were walking out, OB in conversation to ds said are u excited about having a baby brother? And I'm like - Ahhhhh what!!!! And then he was like Ohhhh ummm or a baby sister!!! This was 5 days before I was due to have him! ! Waited that whole time!! Didn't tell dh though
