Had my gender scan yesterday.

Hello!

I had my "alternate" ultrasound yesterday, specifically to look for the gender. Things went really well, but baby wasn't in the best position to get the "money shot". It's butt was tucked away pretty tight, and so we tried everything to get it to change position. Eventually baby got moving and we got the angle we were looking for, but there was cord all over the place, so for that reason, she tech couldn't tell us 100%.... BUT!

She is very confident that baby is a GIRL!!! She definitely saw the "three lines" quite a few times from different angles, but because of the position of the cord and how small baby is, she said that the cord could possibly be hiding a penis. I know I saw female anatomy a few different times, and there was never anything hanging between the legs that looked how my boys looked. I get to go back in 2 weeks just to confirm. She basically was confident enough to tell me to I go buy pink, but just keep the tags on and receipts for another couple weeks Biggrin I'm excited!

CONGRATS on the probably baby girl!! That was my big question from my ultrasound...that no one seemed to be able to answer....if you see the DEFINITE 3 lines...is there anything on a boy that this could be? We definitely saw the 3 lines...the tech pointed them out and explained what it probably was....but because it was only 12 weeks, def was not giving me 100% sure. Hopefully there was no hiding boy parts there and you will be safe with your new pink purchases!! Smile

I go for an ultra sound at the end of Jan to see how our like peanut is doing and hopefully we will find out what we are having then. I have never had an additional ultra sound before to just find out my babies sexes.....how do you go about doing that?

If you find a 3D/4D ultrasound place by you, they usually offer a 2D ultrasound gender scan. It was a fun experience. We were only supposed to get 10 minutes, but she spend a good 45 just looking at the baby and even tried the 3D/4D. I'd recommend doing it later on if you're patient enough to wait until the 20 week ultrasound for gender. The 3D/4D pictures come out a lot better around 28 weeks.
