I am a patient with MCA (and for the 3rd appointment in a row, the midwife couldn't remember me being a midwife patient).
Anyway, I had my 20w u/s with Doctor Simmonds. He did the u/s himself in the frederick office...
I am grasping at straws, I was really hoping my 3rd and last baby would be a girl. But, he seems about 70-80% sure it is a boy, but he looked and looked for about 5 minutes trying to determine the sex. The machine is very old. At least 15 years old. I also have an anterior placenta, which doesn't help image quality.
Anyway, it seemed to be a case of the disappearing penis, in one image it was there, in the next it wasn't. He said "I think there is something there, but I can't tell what it is". I think if I hadn't pushed for a guess he wouldn't have given me one.
Anyone have any experience with these u/s machines, and is there any hope left for a girl for me?
