how confident are you in your 20 week ultrasound gender determination?

Originally we really really wanted a boy, but then when we got our ultrasound we were told with pretty much 100% certainty it was a girl. Now we have our hearts soooooo set on this girl its crazy. We are really thrilled!

On the ultrasound we got a full butt and back thigh shot. nothing there whatsoever, even I could see that and I always have problems discerning the shapes on those things. a front shot, though more body parts were visable and made it hard for me to see,made the doctor still sure it was a girl.

so, though i would be happy with whatever im blessed with, we are prepared for a girl on all fronts. as I am on a very tight budget I have made sure to get deals where I can ahead of time on little girls clothes (craigslist) in bundles, and though some could be gender neutral, alot are pink...

So Ill admit Im paranoid, but I have heard some stories, and I just wanted to know what other peoples experiences in this dept. are... This is my first baby, so it is all very new to me and I dont want to be suprised on delivery day! Do you usually get another ultrasound at some point prior to the birth to "check on things" so to speak? if so when?

100% sure this is a boy. Kind of hard to pass this off as something else



I knew for for DD2, too. 3 lines.

My last u/s was hard to tell but when we got a "between the legs" shot, we could see it was a boy but the tech turned on the colors to verify which was the cord and which was the penis That verified it for us

We're not 100% sure with this one. We have another US coming up though.

But, with DD I started having dreams it was a boy and by that time I had NOTHING GN. Everything was very girly, very pink, very floral. LOL I had another US at 23 weeks to make sure. Sure enough...girl! And, she is still a girl to this day. hehe

Re: how confident are you in your 20 week ultrasound gender determination?

With #1 (13 years ago) they didn't tell in fear of being wrong. I did get in a car accident about a month or so before he was due. The tech slipped and said "she's fine". My doc said the results said nothing of gender. We think because she had girls she just referred to babies as "she".

With #2 they said girl at 18 weeks and showed us what looked like hamburger buns (3 lines) and sure enough she was a girl every ultrasound after that. To this day girl!

With #3, I seent he infamous 3 lines and knew for certain. 1 more ultrasound also showed a girl and sure enough we had another girl.

This time there was no doubt a penis. As skeptical as I was and wanted to be (I had my mind set it was another girl) there was no mistaking that penis.

Re: how confident are you in your 20 week ultrasound gender determination?

With DS we were told boy! And yes he was a boy.

This u/s she didn't want to give it up! She sat yoga-style through most of it, then at the end the tech said, it looks like a girl.. she couldn't give a percentage though! I was bummed, because we were so sure with the first, now it's like..um...do I even buy pink? Which she told us to just keep the receipts. Luckily, we're having another u/s in about a month, doc didn't get a good view of the heart. I started buying pink anyway, because I felt like it was a girl before the u/s...and all the girly fluff is hard to turn down after having a boy!
