Just a layman's opinion, but I agree. I'd take the tech's opinion. I just had my scan done. I was doing a reveal with my husband so she hid the screen when searching for the gender. She kept saying she knew what it was but couldn't get a shot. So when dh and I opened the envelope and looked at the pic I didnt see at all what she was looking at. It was an awful shot. When we looked at the video a few times i definitely saw what she saw.

You'll still have the actual scan to confirm the gender so I'd go with girl and just dont make any permanent decisions like un-refundable pink purchases.

Honestly, this is going to sound horrendous of me, but it goes SO much deeper than that. Gender disappointment is my real fear. I can NOT tell myself that this is a girl for 6 weeks, just to be let down at my anatomy scan. I would be an absolute horrible mess if I did that. So for now I am just going to go with "don't know" and leave it at that. Just sucks because I gave DH a little pink "daddy's girl" outfit lastnight because I was so sure. I guess I'll be returning it.

Me too.

I have a picture from my 5th pregnancy that our very experienced perinatologist gave us. It's a shot of where the cord inserts into what becomes the belly button... and it looks almost identical to the 3 lines seen in this picture. Mine is labled, "3 vessel cord," and the lines aren't straight which I assume is because the cord twists, causing the vessels to go different directions. I really wish our scanner was working so I could share the pic.

With all that said, if the tech nodded when she said she thinks it's a girl, sounds like your chances are pretty good!!

I think its fingers. If you look to the right it almost looks like part of the face, then all the way to the left is the leg, and Im guessing those 3 lines are fingers. Like the baby is laying back with legs up almost fetal position like (or like sitting position, like taking a picture how the legs are closest andthe rest ks farther away, not in focus. . .hard to explain what Im thinking lol) and the hand/fingers happened to get in there.
But thats just a best guess.

Edited bc I got my left and right wrong

Have you thought about going to a private ultrasound place that does gender scans? We are doing that because I am dying to know. I have 3 boys and this will be our last so I completely understand where you are coming from mama! Hugs!!

Re: What do you see - tricky ultrasound.

Oh don't you guys worry. You'll definitely know what it is. I will be finding out at the latest in the middle of January. I'm going back and forth, one minute I'm REALLY upset that it may not be a girl now. On the other hand, I just want a healthy, happy baby. I need to enjoy this pregnancy, because no matter which way it goes, this baby deserves that. I just... hope it's a girl, lol.
