This has been playing on my mind all day so just wondering what others thoughts and experiences are.
Had a 34 week midwife appointment this morning and part way through, she says to me “so you’re having a … aren’t you” and specifies a gender. I reply straight away “no we don’t know the gender and don’t want to know”. She then advised me it was just a slip of the tongue and was her mistake. But I’m not sure whether I believe her.
So my question is this… do midwives know the gender of your baby, even when you’ve specified throughout your pregnancy you don’t want to know? Is it written down somewhere in your notes? Perhaps from a sonographer who has scanned you and noted down the gender? It’s playing on my mind and I’d really like to know if it genuinely was a slip of the tongue or whether she does in fact know the gender of my baby!
