Well, ever since i went to the elective sonogram i keep wondering what if it was the cord in the way or etc etc..? I have heard that there are lots of mistakes when they try to tell so early i was 16 W 4 D when i went. The tech told us the first picture it was a girl, then a minute later says whoops i made a mistake its a boy, so my family said…how sure are you? she said 90% then as we were leaving said well i bet my job on it. So what do you all think? After looking and looking at the pics it all looks the same. I cant wait to go to the OB on the 16th… i just dont want to buy anything else unless i know for sure.
First pic is baby “girl” supposedly
second 2 pics its a “boy”

With my sister, they were 90% sure she was going to be a boy. She sure had other plans, and my parents had to scramble to find the perfect girl name after she had arrived. Thankfully they still had lots of girl stuff left over from my other sister and me.

I haven’t been pregnant, but someone I know was told boy, then went a couple weeks later and it was a girl.

My parents were told that my sister and I would be boys. We weren’t, and we turned out fine. I wouldn’t get too worked up about it. Babies don’t know what gender the rest of society thinks they should be, so if you plan for one and get the other, you’ll adjust. I plan to have names for both picked out when we go to the hospital (when the time comes), just in case. Good luck on the 16th; it’ll be here before you know it!

Well it def happens. I watched a show on newborns, ” Bringing home baby”, or something like that on TLC. And this couple thought they were having boy twins, and they had the room ready and the names picked out, and during the c section found out they had not one, but two boys. I hear the 3D ultrasounds are pretty much dead on, afterall you can see everything. So if you want to be certain, thats the way to go.

I had 14 ultra sounds with my first child yes 14 (lots of pregnacy issues) the first one i was told a boy then every single one after that i was told a girl. Luckly everything that was bought before the second ultrasound was either netural enough to use for a girl or returnable… lol
Just buy netural things until you have another ultrasound!

could it be twins? that happened to my cousin first it was a girl then a boy then they did the 3d and found both. not meaning to freak you out.

I just think there must be other things to be thinking about. Whatever the gender you will love it.

@cr6zy, i suppose anything is possible, we did have an ultrasound at 6 weeks 1 day and the OB said only one, but you never know babies can be tricky.
@cash000, i think i saw an episode like that, what a suprise!
@mspanda, definately have saved all the receipts.
@amaryllis, my parents back in the day were told that i was a boy so they had a boy name ready to go, and i was born, suprise its a girl, lol.

We’re not really worried, but we do know that it’s possible we’re having a boy and not the girl we’re prepared for! The techs at our hospital are not permitted to tell you, but ours “hinted”… I told him I had been looking online all night to try to be able to tell and he said “You know those three lines they tell you to look for if it’s a girl? See these three lines here?” and it looked pretty obvious to us (as obvious as it can look to people who really have no idea what they’re looking at, ha ha!).
If we get a surprise when Baby arrives, it’ll be ok with us! We’ll just have to buy some more clothes and maybe re-paint the room, but we won’t be upset or anything!
I think sticking with buying neutral stuff until you know for sure is a good idea… and maybe even after that 🙂

I just asked Darling Husband, a sonographer, and he said he would’ve never even guessed at that early. It’s really too soon to tell until at least 18 weeks but preferably 20-22 to get more certainty. In looking at the images he said there was no way to tell. I would wait! 🙂
ETA: No way to tell for sure. 🙂

honestly, i can’t see anything clearly in any of your sonogram pictures! i’m sorry! we went at 15w3d for an elective sonogram and were told girl, but i didn’t 100% believe it. just had our big anatomy scan this past week at 19w3d and they said girl also! i trust them since they are medical people and not a for profit place.
here is 15w3d

It’s pretty hard to be certain before 20 weeks, it might be a guessing game!
