    I’m not an ultrasound tech, so my opinion should probably be taken with a grain of salt compared with a professional’s but it looks like it could be a baby.

    Um, you had a medical professional tell you, I would believe that over any internet stranger..... 16 weeks seems early for an anatomy scan, I thought the ideal is 20weeks for the most accurate measurements.

  • Yeah that’s what I thought too 16 weeks is too early for an anatomy scan but i think that’s the only one I’m getting my next appt is just a check up and so I’m debating getting an elective ultrasound somewhere else since it’s not very clear to me since the baby had it’s legs crossed the whole time other than this picture for a second but still the ankles are crossed

    Clear crotch shots are not the important part of an anatomy scan.

  • I feel like when you typed the words "early anatomy scan" that should have told you it was early.

    I work in OBGyn and we never do an anatomy scan prior to 18 weeks.

  • Before going to an elective ultrasound at an UNREGULATE BOUTIQUE, and its THAT important to you to know: why not ask at your next appointment if they would allow you to get a better picture to better determine the sex.  They might allow you to, just ask.

     If you dont believe the tech, that it's a boy, then there is nothing wrong with being team green!  We were and love it!
