We had an u/s yesterday and the tech said probably a boy... but in the pic she printed out SAYING boy I don't see what she is talking about... and in other stills from the video it looks more like girl?? Can someone look at these and give an opinion? We have another u/s on the 9th so I am really just curious...

Here is the pic she labeled as "its a boy":

And here are 2 stills from the video... The first the head is on the right, butt on the left with the legs pointing toward the head:

The second is the butt on the right with the legs pointing to the left:

I cant tell in any of them, neither girl nor boy... I actually cant make out much in any of them except the head in the second... and I can usually see ultrasound images pretty clearly.

Yeah... the pics kinda fail!! The video won't let me pause it for some reason, so hopefully we get better pics at the next u/s!!

chely i personally think you should not yet give up on the girl possibility (i read your post in your ddc). i find your u/s images to be very unclear as far as the gender goes.
of course i am not an u/s tech but it is just my opinion.

Happy mama to my four girls S 8.15.02 , L 04.25.06 (gone at 36 weeks ) and L 3.10.07.And another rainbow! Baby C has arrived 10.26.10!

I am not totally giving up hope... but I am also trying not to get my hopes up if that makes sense. I just want to know, in a more definitive-ish sort of way!! And yeah, all the pictures look really unclear to me too.

This.

Maybe the angle of the first picture is what we're missing to say "yes, it's a boy!" but I can't make it out. I've seen a lot of ultra sound photos and can usually make them out pretty well, too, but in this case I'm with Maeryn. Nothing other than the head in the second picture is clear to me.

All hope is not lost.

ETA: This is my 100th post. Wow.

The pictures aren't great. Especially the one that was labled "boy". The other pictures look girly to me.

That's amazing. Go you!

To me it's just crazy because I haven't even been signed up for a full month. I've never been a message board or even and IM person. I don't even really like talking on the phone. I couldn't tell you the last time I checked my email if you offered to pay me. But something about MDC . . . it kind of feels like home here, you know? I love it here!

I wouldn't trust that tech. Those are the "worst" quality ultrasound photos I have seen. We are having our third boy and there was NO doubt on our scans/printouts that they were boys. I hope you get a better look at your next appointment!

I am so glad you guys agree that the pics suck!! And that nobody else has any idea either My husband thinks I am just trying to talk myself into the chance of a girl still, but that really isn't it... I have really come to terms with a 3rd boy and at this point would just like to know!

I see cord in the first picture, the way it coils says cord to me, not penis.

The second picture is just a bunch of blobs, I can make out the head on the right, but I almost see a second much-less-developed baby in the center (does anyone else see that? It looks like an 8 week embryo, with the big mis-shapen head facing to the right, then a "talk", I even see what could be little arm buds!)

The third picture is again confusing to me, I see what could be butt and legs, but again I see a second sac! (to the right, it looks like a membrane separating two sacs!) (oh, I see no penis in the third picture, although no vagina either)

Boy, do I have twins on my mind or what

I wish I was more coordinated and could figure out how to edit/upload the actual video from the ultrasound!!! But alas, I am SO techno-stupid it is not even funny and I have no idea how to do that. I will definitely keep you guys updated when we have our big u/s the 9th tho!!!
