OK, so my husband thinks I'm crazy but I had an ultrasound yesterday. I am 18 weeks and 2 days and the tech said "I think it's a boy". I asked if she was 100% and she said no but she was pretty sure.

The picture on the left is the ultrasound from yesterday.The one on the right is a picture of my son taken at 17 weeks and 4 days. They certainly don't look the same. On the left, I see 3 lines all the same length, however, it's protruding (not flat) But in my sons you can clearly see the bottom and top separately. Thoughts?

I would say boy as well. Do you have shots from any other angles?

I'm thinking it could be the cord. It does look different enough from your son that I wouldn't be 100% sure.

The only other angle I have is the profile which again, is different from my sons. You could see it sticking up in his. This one below shows nothing.

my sons ultrasounds look like the pic on the left - at 16-18 wks - the first one is 4 and is a boy for sure, my 2nd son is in my belly - 2 ultrasounds at 16 and 19 wks showed the same boy parts.. they techs told me he was 100% boy.

I would say boy but I see what you are talking about with the 3 lines. That is what my daughters looked like but the lines weren't as far back towards the butt.
