(Cross-posted from July DDC. FYI- I'm 27 weeks now, but these are from my last ultrasound.) What do y'all think, based on these pics?

Wait, "that's what we're thinking??"....they gave you those clear genital shots but didn't confirm girl or boy? I'm confused.

No, the tech said she thought girl...and we've all thought girl until a week or so ago I was regaled with horror stories about hidden testicles and ultrasound pics that seemed 100% one way but were totally wrong lol. So I wanted to see what the more experienced mamas thought. (This is our first.)

yep. I would say girl too! But I also wouldn't go overboard with the pink either, just on principal! We were the "victim" of an umbilical cord that the OB thought was a scrotum and got a surprise girl!
