We just had our ultrasound at 19w4d. The tech at first said girl, because of the three lines. The baby was moving a lot, and eventually I had to pee. So I went and came back, and with an empty bladder, my LO was moving all over the place. The tech tried to verify the three lines and couldn't see them again. She said she saw "soft tissue" down there but couldn't verify if it was truly boy parts, swollen labia, etc. She said the testicles may not have descended if the baby is a boy. She was leaning toward girl based on the earlier sighting of three lines, but in the end she just didn't know. Thoughts? (Both pictures are the same, one is a color scan and the other is a B&W scan.)
Ultrasound tech not sure...what do you think?? UPDATE!
those "three lines" look like the tailbone or sacrum to me. too far back to be labia. I don't think you have enough to go on either way. the image is at the wrong depth (or whatever you want to call it). either get all gender neutral stuff, or another ultrasound, because it's not conclusive either way. (I have a girl and am having a boy, so I've seen an ultrasound of each, that doesn't look like either)
FWIW many thought that this babes 1st US was girl.
I'm not an expert (ha!) but to me it looks like a girl. The depth and position are weird and what I think some people would say is "the goods" looks to be the cord. To me, boys are always super obvious, especially after 18 weeks or so, it's hard to miss, especially from that vantage point. You'll have to update and let us know. I've always heard if you got a crotch shot and it's questionable, it's a girl but I guess only time will tell. FWIW, DD#3 was questionable at 18 weeks (her knees were locked) and 22 was very visibly girl.
No, they didn't print a gender pic for us:(
I have to agree with Tink! My u/s tech at 16 weeks said one of mine was a girl, and it turned out it was in fact a boy, but he couldn't get a shot like this at all.
At 23 weeks 5 days, we were able to get a very very clear u/s pic just like this one where you can very clearly see boy parts, I'd think you'd be able to see a little more of something (especially in this perfect position), if it was a boy at 17 weeks.
I dont' know if you can compare really, since this is a pic (much further along) of our Baby A (Tristan) at 23weeks 5 days:
