If so, what did they guess?
I had a doctor and two techs all say it was pretty much without a doubt a boy. It was so exciting to hear! I'm not buying anything yet, though :)
The tech said she had an "educated guess" of it being a boy. She said she usually doesn't like to make predictions that early on unless she's pretty sure. And she said everytime the baby was in the right position to see it, his "stuff" was just staring her right in the face.
So we'll just wait and see! Our 20 week u/s is on July 23rd!
Mon715:No guesses. My mom guessed girl because of the HB, but the tech said she's seen boys with fast HB's and girls with slow HB's, so it wasn't a for sure thing.
My mom asked the tech about the heartbeat thing. But the tech said that this early on they all pretty much have higher HB's. That the old wives tales about the HB/gender predictions were done based on the HB's in the 3rd Tri.
bosha711:No, they said it was too early to determine.
Baby genitalia look almost identical until about 13 to 14 weeks.
CRFJAG:Not even mentioned!
At our NT scan I was 13 weeks pregnant. We didn't see a stick in between the legs. We asked the US tech to look later and tell us what she thought. She was right with my friend at the 13 week sonogram. (We saw a stick on our US with my son 2 years ago so it was very evident)
To start she told us not to go out and buy anything based on what she said.
Then she got a great shot in between baby's legs and said she is pretty sure it will be a girl and will be shocked if it is not a girl on the 20 week us.
She was even able to point out 3 distinct lines. Which is usually noted to be a girl.
We get to find out on June 30th. Cannot wait to see what they find in 2 weeks.
Kellina:Didn't even try or offer to guess!
I love your siggy! That is adorable! Its incredible the difference one year makes!
thatgirl85:The ultrasound tech was pretty sure it's a boy. After all I've read on early gender determination, I have not bought any blue items yet! I go back next week to find out for sure, and then let the shopping being.
At the time you have your NT scan, both genders have "nubs." They look very similar at that time. The only difference is boy nubs usually angle 30 degrees or more and girl nubs tend to be completely parallel with the spine.

It has TONS of ultrasound pictures of nubs.
