“Today was my appointment for 20 weeks. My husband couldn’t take me to the appointment this time, so I went alone. I was bummed about it, but he can’t go inside with me anyways. Unfortunately, I ended up getting lost; I’ve only been in this town for a short time and don’t know my way around yet. I was 10 minutes late. The nurse lectured me on being late and told me they wouldn’t have time to do an ultrasound and tell me the gender as they had to work me in.
I started crying, trying to explain and apologize for why I was late, and she just had no expression on her face. She asked if this was my first kid and then said, “I thought so.” They told me they’d see me in a month and MAYBE then tell me the gender. I’m upset and ashamed for crying and getting lost. I wanted to know the gender and was so excited to find out today.” –HootBear This behavior is definitely not how someone should be treated, especially while pregnant.
