hi mamas and mamas to bee,
I had my anatomy scan this past week. We told the tech that we wanted to know the gender if she could tell. The baby was in the breech position so she was having trouble getting a heart picture so was was very focused during the scan. She said towards the middle of the scan I think I know the gender. she said she thinks it’s a girl. I was kind of shocked shocked cause I had a feeling it was a boy all along. I said you think or your know? She said I didn’t see s penis anywhere. I said did you see the three lines? She scanned some more and showed us and we counted. She said she was certain and has never been wrong. For some reason, I dont believe it and I cant figure out whY. im thrilled to be pregnant and really have no gender preference. Was your gender prediction after 19 weeks accurate?

I had mine at 18 weeks and it was very clear to my husband and I that we are having a boy

I had my anatomy scan at 19-20 weeks, and I also had a feeling that it was a boy – no real hope either way (or if anything, I was actually kind of hoping for a girl), but I just had myself convinced it was a boy. We saw the three lines, and the tech was pretty certain that it’s a girl. We’ve since had another scan (around 24-25 weeks), and she’s still a girl 🙂 Seeing the boy ultrasounds from the other ladies in my birth-month group, it’s pretty obvious when it’s a boy, especially that far along! (the only one who was initially told girl then they found out later it was a boy had her gender scan pretty early, I think around 15-16 weeks).

They’re usually pretty clear at that stage as far as I know.

Sounds like you’re having a girl! It’s true that there’s a higher wrong gender rate when you’re told a girl, but it’s still pretty darn rare. Especially at your gestational age.
Given that she went back and looked twice, I’d feel pretty confident you’re having a girl!

Thanks everyone. maybe it was just my crazy internet searches of people writing how they know someone who was told wrong. those could have been some stories from recently and some from long ago. I couldn’t get a read in the tech the whole time . I think she was being professional which I respect and that lack of persona connectiom made me trust her less. I think that’s it.

I had an elective gender scan at 17 and a half weeks and was told she was 100% sure it was a girl. Even though she was certain I was still nervous because I know it’s easier to be wrong on a girl and because it was so early. The three lines were very clear even then. I had my anatomy scan at 22 weeks and she confirmed it’s a girl.

At 19 weeks it should be pretty clear. I had mine at 18w6d and it was very obviously a boy!

I had an U/S at 19w5d and the tech said she was 100% sure it was a girl. She zoomed in and pointed out the lady bits and said she was absolutely positive. She was right 🙂

I had mines at 17 weeks and 5 days she said it loks like a boy but she wasn’t sure. Had another one done at either 18 or 19 weeks can’t remember and it was still a boy. And at 38 weeks and 3 days, she was right he came out a boy.

I had a scan at 20 weeks, and it was quite clearly a boy (and definitely his father’s child, who hid his face and displayed his bits). It was confirmed again this past week at our 24 week scan. They are usually right on the gender.

I had mine right at 18 weeks. She said girl, and three years later, my daughter is still a girl!

19 week scans are very accurate. the fault comes in baby being in a weird position that makes a penis hidden. I don’t think she would tell you a gender if she wasn’t extremely sure. You’re probably just in shock that you were wrong.

I have had a feeling we are pregnat with a boy, but now the beginning of the 2nd trimester I have gotten some blemishes so I’m second guessing my intuition. Still have to wait 7 weeks before the 20 week mark, then we will find out. I don’t mind either way, just want a healthy baby.

My scan at 19 weeks was accurate as far as gender was concerned. My tech said that there is always a possibility that a scan can be wrong, but that it was rare unless the baby was in a position where nothing could be seen.
