  • We couldn't tell the first time, because my little girl has always been a little lady and she kept her legs crossed the whole time. :-) We had to go back for a second ultrasound where we did find out.

  • I could tell it was a baby. Beyond that I didn't want to know the sex, so I found out what I wanted to which was that my kids were developing normally and everything looked fine.

  • It was hard to tell with my bun in the oven. He just kept moving around and every time the technician got a good angle to see the gender, he'd throw a leg in the way. DH, myself and her all were pretty sure we saw boy parts at one stage or another, so we're getting stuff ready for a boy even though it wasn't terribly clear. And if baby does turn out to be a girl, she'll have a lot of blue and green clothes with reptiles on them which I doubt will bother her very much at that tender age LOL.

  • I have had 2 ultrasounds so far and both times we thought we saw boy parts. The first one he just wasn't quite developed enough and the second time, he was just plain being a brat! Would not open his legs at all! ?Till he decided to flash us and close his legs really quickly after wards, tho we are all sure we saw boy parts. We go in next month to see if we can get a good picture this time!

  • My friend is 22 almost 23 weeks and they havent been able to tell yet. Baby is breech with butt facing her belly so all they see is the back of the baby in u/s's. Shes going back in a couple weeks to see if they can tell now.

  • the tech could've told us, but we didn't know. she said it was pretty obvious too. we had a boy.

  • Not me but my sister did. They didn't know my nephew (now my little brother) was going to be a boy until he was born. LOL
