(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?

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!
