What do you guys think?

I had my NT scan yesterday and I had to wait until today to scan in one of the pics....
The baby looks perfectly healthy!!!
I think the pic shows the gender, however I am not certain. As hard as I tried to peek between the legs during the U/S, it wasn't easy. the lady didn't address the gender issue, she is kind of old fashioned and cranky. So when I saw the baby during the few minutes she let me see ( she turns the screen away during the measurements!) all I could see was a bunch of... bulges? Like bubbles and stuff. So I thought maybe a boy. But the 2D picture shows a line,right?
So, what do you guys say? I was exactly 13 weeks yesterday.
I am adding 2 copies of the same pic. One "clean" and one with a circle and the "arrow" pointing to the line. Sorry- I suck at paint!

Sorry I can't tell anything from that pic. I have heard that you can't tell gender, unless looking at chromosones, until at least 14 wks, because until then boys and girls may have a little "tail".
But I have also heard that if you see the toilet shot you can guess, bc a girl will be 3 lines and a boy 2 and something about an angle??
Here is a site I just found: http://baby2see.com/gender/external_genitals.html
hope that helps Smile

I cant tell either Asha.My Dr said that he wouldnt trust any gender prediction before 16 weeks since things look so similar before that.

Hopefully you'll get another ultrasound in awhile so you can get a good look. Could just be the umbilical cord that's making the line? Cute bean pic, looks to me like a sweet little hand up near the face, awwww.

Yeah, it could be. We will be happy with either gender- totally. it's just fun to speculate Wink
Yeah, the baby keeps his or hers arms around the face all the time and it's soooo cute!
I also got to see the umbilical cord pulsating- it was kind of interesting and it makes sense.
We will find out the gender soon enough.

Oh Asha! I am thrilled everything is going well! I just love u/s pics! Smile
I cannot tell the gender by the pic... but let us know when you have your next u/s if you find out!

Asha, at this stage it's all about 'the angle of the dangle'. All babies at this point have a nub that sticks out between two folds. The folds turn into labia or testicles. The nub, if straight shows girl, if angled shows boy. Unfortunately it looks like your little one is curled up too much to really see the angle. Plus just a bit too blurry.

SO fun to see a healthy babe in there! I'm terrible and judging gender on u/s though

I am so happy that all went well! Congrats!! I have abosolutely no idea about the gender - I suck at picking things out of the ultrasound...I am lucky if I can tell the head from the butt Smile
