friends of ours had a girl after expecting a boy and the father was in shock for days

Goodness -- I can't imagine a slight difference in genitals being more of a shock than the enormous shock to the system of Actually Having A Baby! :-}

I can't actually think of anything that we'll do differently before birth as a result of knowing its sex, except choosing a name (& I'd more or less decided on a boy's name anyway so we'll have one in reserve if it turns out they did get it wrong). To be honest I can't think of many things where sex/gender will make a big difference for a good few years yet, but maybe that's just a failure of imagination on my part.

we'll probably see then

I certainly wouldn't've worked it out from just looking without someone else telling me what the different blobs were. :-} That was 20wks though -- maybe it's more obvious later?

Good luck with the scan tomorrow -- hope everything's going well whatever it turns out to be!

Yeah well. It wasn't that we thought we would be in shock ourselves, just the (singular of data isn't) anecdote that the guesses could be wrong - the scans have improved in 4 years anyway!
