  • I've always been told that the only way to be sure, is to wait until delivery. It sucks because it makes it hard to buy anything. My doctor told me the sex of my babies but wouldn't tell me how sure he was of what their sex was. He said, it looks like a boy or girl but you'll have to wait until the big day to know 100%. Every time!

  • i say, buy what you can neutral. take 2 outfits for delivery, one boy and one girl.

  • I carried my girl up higher, and I'm 6 months preggo with my boy. He is much lower...I would go by the latest sonogram.. but I'm sure they will give you more the later into it you get. Ask then.

  • normally if it's a boy, they'll circle his little part. part of the sono process. did they do that? if not then it's probly a girl. but like the pp's said, you never know till the big day. GL just pray for a healthy baby :)

  • At what point in pregnancy were the sonograms taken? In the earlier stages of development the sex organs look virtually identical and it's not likely to tell one or the other until around 18 weeks though from my experience, as well as friends and family pregnancies, they usually confirm gender at 20 weeks during the routine sonogram.

  • if your first US was before 20 weeks, its sometimes hard to be sure.. I would trust the second... did you get a good look yourself?

  • Usualy a little girl is 3 white lines...a little boy doesn't have distinct lines like a girl does.
