Re: How accurate do you think ultrasound is for gender at 18 wks?

My first U/S with this baby now was unclear. She wasn't in a good position. I had to go back for another scan because they couldn't get a clear picture of the other stuff either. Then we were able to see without a doubt that its another girlie girl.

Good luck Mama. Maybe a private scan to ease your mind?

My 18-20wk u/s was always accurate with gender but I have had boys which is a bit easier. The 12wk u/s I had for the nuchal translucency screening said girl but I'm not buying anything YET! Next month is my anatomy scan and they have 3D so I'm sure we'll know then!

I had my u/s at 18wks and baby was measuring about 5 days behind that. He was OBVIOUSLY a boy. I've had a girl and when I saw the potty shot, I KNEW it was a boy. LOL! It was confirmed without a doubt at my followup a month later. The tech did say that at this gestation it can still be swollen labia, but she was about 99% sure it was a boy.
