what does this mean?

I had an ultrasound done today and the babies legs were crossed but the doctor said at first they thought it was a girl then they said they didnt see a sandwhich so they werent sure. Does any one know what that means? I was really upset we wanted to know what it was.

  • I think "sandwich" means the way the labia looks. Not the terminology you were expecting I am sure. Try the over the counter pee test called Intelligender. You can buy it at Walgreens and find out what you're having based on the hormones in your urine sample. Pee in the cup, close the lid on the cup, swirl (not shake) and either your specimen will turn green (boy) or orange (girl). It is supposed to take the guess work out of wondering.

  • He probably got a quick peek but not a really good look. I would wait until the next u/s to make sure.

  • It just means that they can't be 100% sure of the sex. Sometimes babies are stubborn like that! Did you ask if you could get another ultrasound?

  • Sometimes our little ones like to cause trouble very early. During my 4 month ultrasound with my now almost 5 year old son, it took about 30 minutes before he uncrossed his legs enough to tell he was a boy. And I'll probably get this wrong but they say a girls genitalia resembles a sandwich and a boy resembles a hot dog in a that's what they were talking about....
