So I had an ultrasound at just about 22 weeks and the tech told me she 'thinks' I am having a boy and then gave me this photo. I have NO clue what I am looking at and I have no idea how she can tell it even 'might' be a boy.
What do you all think? Definitely a boy? Possibly a girl? Not a clue what you are looking at either?
Thanks for your input in advance.
Google images has lots of u/s pics of boy/girl parts. You can go and look and see what a good clear "boy" looks like and it ain't what you posted
I can see where it may be a boy....but.......I'd still discuss girl names at least.
This is the picture of my current in utero little boy at 20 weeks.

(i say this b/c i did lots of research when we decided not to find out dd's sex and then i thought i was going to be clever and watch my ultrasound video over and over.. and i thought i was gonna have a boy till i saw the girl images in the ultrasound.. basically i think boy b/c i am a cheater!)
Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?
OP - what is your intuition? Do you FEEL like it's a boy?

FTR upfront, I am NOT in any way any sort of medical professional at all. But, I have 2 girls myself, I have 5 nieces and nephews, and all of my very close friends are either currently, or have just had a baby in the last year, not to mention that I am currently pg with my third. Plus, one of those friends is a nurse. So I have seen a LOT of u/s gender photos and videos over the last few years, and had them very clearly explained several times.
Basically, girls are supposed to have three white lines and they are pretty bright. It's supposed to be easier to tell girl than boy, because those lines are a little more obvious. My sister, who has two boys, describes the boy images as a little turtle.
In your photo, I can't see much of anything clearly. Most u/s that I have seen are pretty clear on where the legs are, the feet, bones etc. I think I can see one bone in your image, but I can't even tell where "between the legs" area IS in your photo.
Now, having said all that....I am 24 weeks and we couldn't tell gender at my own u/s!: Out of all those kids I just mentioned, this little one is the only one who wouldn't give up the goods. It wasn't because of clarity though, it was because the little booger wouldn't open up them legs for nothing. His (intuition says boy) legs were crossed at the ankles and knees were like locked together or something. We poked my belly around, I stood up, sat up, rolled over, laid flat, they even tilted the u/s table so that I was head down at like a 30 degree angle. Nothin' doin'. So I am totally having a surprise!
And, IMHO, which means like nothing, it appears you might be too:
Yeah, that ultrasound photo really sucks. Im not impressed with it at all. Baby had his? butt tucked into my pelvis and was anterior. I am not even sure how the heck she managed to get any picture of the parts! FWIW, this is our NEW ultrasound machine she was using.
I still dont see boy parts after looking and looking at numerous boy u/s photos. The ultrasound tech showed me on the picture what I was looking at but it was dark in there and I couldnt see where she was pointing.
Oh well. Looks like I'm still on the green team?!
FWIW..here is my current baby's ultrasound. I have had two so far and both say girl
