I am torn on this, because ultrasounds are fun.
But on the other hand, part of me realizes that until recently, no one had ultrasounds, and like cell phones, they aren't necessary. Life went on before them, and would still go on without one.
We want to be totally surprised as to the gender (DD was a surprise, DS wasn't, and we want this one to be a surprise at birth) and I would like to see what it's like to NOT ultrasound, since they aren't totally risk-free, anyway, at least according to some articles.
DH kind of wants an ultrasound, and I am on the fence, leaning away from having one this time.
Anyone else ever gone "au natural" with their pregnancy and want to tell about it?
(no horror stories about someone you heard of once, please, as I can match horror stories of someone who suffered a terrible fate due to not testing for everything, with an equal horror story about someone who suffered a terrible fate BECAUSE of too much invasive management of their pregnancy, and don't want this to be a hot topic or offend anyone)
