  • it depends, my doctor doesnt do ultra sounds, so I would listen to my ultra sound tech- they do it all day EVERYDAY. lol

  • well if your Doc doesn't do regular U/S I would go withthe tec. otherwise i would go with whoever has the better success rate.But i would be sceptical either way cuz they aren't always right!!!

  • I would ask for another ultrasound in a few weeks. At 19 weeks we had our first one and they told us it was a 90% chance a girl. At 24 weeks it was definitely a boy.

  • get a 3D/4D ultrasound done. They are awesome

  • 3-D/4-D ultra sounds arent covered by insurance and not EVERYONE can afford them.
    I would go with your ultra sound techs opnion, they do that everyday DRs don't.
    but either way, its not always accurate.

  • you know what my Dr. never did a u/s but she said "I have a feeling is a girl" & she was a girl... the u/s tech. said it looks like a girl but, im not sure. Next time u get a u/s ask if they can check the sex for u..
