Third trimester gender pic. Help!

This is my third trimester ultrasound pic. I had one at 20 weeks and the tech said it was a girl. I had a different tech this time (at 33 weeks) who also said this was a girl. I'm just not convinced though. Her labia just seems like it's protruding quite a bit or maybe it's swollen. I don't know if this is normal for a girl in the third trimester or if this is a scrotum. Of course I wouldn't mind a boy but I have sooo many girl things, it would be such a pain to change everything! What do you all think??  Have any of you had third trimester girl ultrasounds that look like this?

  • Seriously the us techs have way more expertise than we do.

  • I'm having a girl and the tech described her parts as a "hamburger". That was at 28.5wks. That looks hamburgery to me, but trust your techs.

  • Looks like labia to me.  Testicles are often descended at this point so you would likely see those in a scrotum with fluid around them...plus there would also be a penis.

  • You have a legit question. And anyone can get a good understanding of how to view a sonogram if they just spend time looking at them (google has tons). That is definitely a girl. The penis would be obvious, and while you only have a screen cap here, the US tech would have scanned over the whole area and would have both seen the penis if it existed and given you a picture of it. Congrats! I am having a girl too and spent so much time looking at boy and girl anatomy scans on google before my ultrasound that I knew she was a girl before the tech said it out loud.

    Well, look here y'all, we can become trained sonographers by using the googles to view u/s photos. :-?

    I hope that is a girl because if it is a boy, he is missing his penis.

    Lmao I just died
  • Ultrasound techs have training for this. No amount of googling will take the place of that! I have no clue what the hell I'm even looking at! Trust your techs, and congratulations on your little girl!

  • Trust you tech. Additionally it is quite common for newborns to have swollen genitals and for girls to have discharge/blood in the first few days/weeks.
  • If two trained u/s techs have said girl, I'd go with that.  I'm just an bank teller.
