Ultrasound tech not sure...what do you think?? UPDATE! - Page 2

post #21 of 38

Hmmm now all the previous posts are making me question whether or not I'm actually having a girl. LOL

 

These are my 15 week and 18 week scans...

 

You can see here at 15 weeks that those "three lines" look to be pretty far back... I'm guessing people here would say that's a boy???

18 weeks:

Beth,

 

I would say your's is for sure a girl. Mine have looked exactly like that with all three DDs.

One thing is sure, time will tell thumb.gif

Supposedly the 3-line sign is pretty accurate, and my sons definitely showed nothing like this:

Just checking in to see if you are going to have another go at finding out because I am VERY curious to hear the outcome  lurk.gif

After seven pregnancies and many more than the norm of ultrasounds because me sis-in-law is an Ultrasound Tech I would say this is the most unclear unltrasound I have ever seen for this stage of pregnancy.  ;)  You really can't tell for sure.  The ultrasound tech talk is that if it looks like a hamburger, it is a girl.  If it looks like a turtle, it is a boy.  Hmmmm... mostly to me I would think this is a boy, but like I said it is very unclear.  By unclear I mean uncertain... the ultrasound is not fuzzy or anything.... just not showing the detail good.  Looks like you will be waiting it out.  My vote is boy.  ;)

Yes! Level 2 ultrasound on Feb 8th. Such a long time to wait!

It'll go by faster than you can blink.  ;)  And then you will have four months to prepare still.  So.... I am curious... do you have a preference?

Mmm...not really. With my DD we didn't want to know and were surprised. DH only wants 2 kids, so this time we thought we'd have the experience of knowing ahead of time, just to get to do it both ways. (And I can buy cuter cloth dipes!) 

 

So, a son would be nice, but a little sister for my DD would also be very cool. My family is hoping for a boy in that "having a complete set, one of each" mindset (ugh.) At this point it's just frustrating because we did decide to find out the sex and just our dumb luck, we get this inconclusive sonogram! LOL So...funny, but annoying. :)   So now we *really* want to know either way, because it's becoming this big mystery for us!

I would say girl.  My first was a girl and of course I can't find u/s pic on this computer to show the 3 lines, but that's what I remember them looking like.  By comparison, this time with my son, u/s at 18 weeks, it looked nothing like 3 lines.  It looked a tube of lipstick or a space ship!

I don't know if this link will work, but here goes :)

I'd say girl for sure. I know everyone is different, but this was my U/S at 20w, and I am having a boy.

Yours looks a lot different than that and I can see the 3 lines, so I'd say girl for you!

Bumping to make sure she remembers to fill us all in tomorrow thumb.gif

Can't wait to find out! I had a u/s yesterday and the tech said she is positive mine is a girl. She kept saying see those 3 lines? And I was like ummm yeah. But really I can't see anything on that tiny monitor. She could tell I didnt believe her so she told me at my next appt she'll do another look to show me.

I've had three girls, and each of their "3 lines" has been right on the edge of the baby...not that far back.  It could be a girl still...but I wouldn't use those three lines as the judge.

OP here...I think this picture says it all! We were so surprised! stork-boy.gif I was thinking boy until that first u/s tech shook my resolve, but lo and behold, it's a boy! DH is in major shock!

Congratulations!  I'm glad you got a definitive answer.

No guess work needed there! joy.gif Congratulations

post #38 of 38

Congrats on your boy news and on getting a for sure answer!  Now I'm all worried that the ultrasound techs were wrong at my 15/18 week scans. LOL  I'm going to have a lot of pink stuff to sell or return!  Ha!
