Just came back from my 12 week u/s and the doctor said that it was a girl (90%)!! I clearly saw the distinctive '3 lines' on the screen which indicates the female genitalia! For those of you who do not believe that gender recognition is possible at 12 weeks, my doctor said very firmly that only third world countries did not have the ability to see a baby's sex at 12 weeks (baby's position excluded). My opinion is that doctors in the US are so afraid of being sued by over-sensitive parents-to-be that they refuse to tell them until later on. Fortunately here where I live we do not sue our doctors for trivial things such as stating the gender of the baby. The most important thing anyways for me was to hear that the baby is just fine. Seeing her kicking her long legs and waving her arms was absolutely magic and wonderful. Can't wait to hold her in my arms!!!!
