We just had our anatomy scan at almost 18 weeks and the ultrasound tech didn't want to make a guess, but this looks like a boy to me.
What do you think?
Thanks for your thoughts!
Yep! That's a boy :)
Congratulations. Sons are the best!
Thanks for looking, ladies!
Lucky_Dragonfly:yeah...just a bit.
That's what I said! I thought the tech was kidding when she said she didn't want to make a guess. I was like, "Are you seeing what I'm seeing?"
Pretty sure that's a boy.
MrsR0908:Yep, I say boy! Why didnt she want to guess?
She said it was because "he" wouldn't open his legs and show her the scrotum. She said it could be a swollen girl. Hmm! I don't think so!
krislee17:I'm going with boy as well. Congrats!!
Thank you! We're so excited! We would have been equally excited for a girl, but just knowing who's been bouncing around in there is so awesome.
Those are definitely boy parts my gender sono looked completely different than that and I am pregnant with a girl. Congrats!!!!
She thought that could be a swollen girl!? Um I could see if she were worried that it was the umbilical cord, but not that it was swollen girl parts. I wonder how long she's been an US tech, or if she recently got one wrong. =)
Looks like a boy to me!
grace782:That's certainly what my boy looks like.
Looks boy to me!
I had u/s at 18 weeks to determine gender with both LOs. We got very clear shots both times that were very definite. My dd is quite certain as shes 2 and little baking LO were 2nd checked at my 21 week u/s. I think at 18 weeks its a pretty safe guess. :)
munkie85:Definitely looks like a boy to me. Does not look anything like a "swollen girl". It also does not look like an umbilical cord. You can see the cord under the "BOY". The fact that the ultrasound technician was not sure worries me a bit. That is one of the easiest parts about the scan. The legs look pretty open to me as well.
Yeah, we went to a place recommended last by our midwife. It was the only place we could get an appointment before the end of December. We won't be back there!
