Disappointed-ish

Today I went and got an ultrasound done at 16 weeks 5 days, it was a gift for my Fiance to find out what the gender is. Well 30 minutes later they thought it is a girl. I have the pictures and was suppose to get the DVD but it doesn't work. The baby was being stubborn, the legs were crossed, the cord was between it's legs, and her hand was there also, so it was difficult. But they think 90% it's a little girl. Has any of you had an experience like this?

  • No but when I was prego my friend told me that her sister had been told she was having a girl all along and when the baby was born it was a boy. So call up your doctor and schedule another ultrasound ASAP so you can know for sure!

  • You usually cant find out 100% what the sex is until 20 weeks

  • i think it's fairly common. my son was kind of in a weird position too, and they said they were pretty sure they saw scrotum, and said they were about 95% sure he was a boy. :) someone i know had an ultrasound around 20 weeks, and they couldn't tell at all because of the baby's position. she has complications, so she had another ultrasound a few weeks later, and it's a girl! :)

  • my kids were not shy at all. its like they knew what we were looking for and they would put there junk like right up to the scoop and spread eagle.
    i only hope this next baby does the same. we shall find out in about 9 weeks.
    : )
    but yes it is common for babies to be shy!

  • I'm 34-35 weeks, and yes the same exact thing happened to us! She had her butt up but you couldn't see the sex parts b/c legs were closed and she was asleep by this point and the radiologist was a student and didn't know what she was doing. They said it was a girl, so I just had another sonogram and it is a girl!
