COULD YOU TELL THE COLOR OF YOUR CHILD THRU THE A.S?

My best friend and i are both prgnant and we are four weeks apart. My aultrasound show my baby to be light and hers show the baby dark. What the heck does that mean? Could my baby be light or what? So confused. What could that mean? Do aultrasounds show light if the baby is light or could this be something eles?

  • Umm... i don't think it has anothing to do with the actual "color" of your baby. I would not even focus on it.

  • I am not sure but maybe google the images of babies of different cultures and do the comparisons on how they look during ultrasound

  • If your baby is really deep inside you it'll look light, if its higher up then it'll be dark. The closer the baby is to the ultrasound thingy it'll be dark. Hope this helps. You can't tell any color by an ultrasound whether it be eyes, hair or skin.

  • My babies(I'm black) always look the same as my friend's babies who are white. The ultrasound can not tell what race your child is. It all depends on the machine, the tech and how they have the color settings.

  • You can't tell race through an ultrasound.
