Chances of having an ultrasound wrong? adult content

I was told that we will be having another boy yay! :) I am very excited about greeting him into the world. But I compared my boy ultrasound to this one and it doesn't look the same. They are at the same weeks just this ones looks differen't. It looks like three lines with the middle sticking out a little bit. But my oldest ultrasound you can tell its a penis. Do you think the tech got it wrong? I am kinda confused and I am wondering if I need to get another ultrasound done to confirm cause it looks different. Not a boy part atleast or maybe just not developed yet?

  • Normally ultrasound techs are pretty accurate.. If you are not comfortable with the results, pay to get another ultrasound done.

  • It depends on how far along you are. the further on,the chance of mistake lessens.

  • Yeah, I would get another one, I got them weekly from having gestational diabete's and made them show me the penis every time for 2 months lol!

  • If you see 3 lines or what looks like a hamburger, it's most likely a girl.

  • it took 4 ultrasounds for them to say yes it is for sure a girl! they never got a clear shot! so at 6 months we could start buying girl stuff! but i was buying stuff long before then lol! have them do it again but they are right a lot of the time!

  • I would have another one done. Usually boy parts are VERY clear. Id be soo sad to think I was having another boy & expect to use old clothing & have a girl sneak up on me in the delivery room! Id find a 3d place & pay the $50 to be SURE!

  • while ultrasounds are usually pretty accurate they can definately be wrong! with my oldest i had 4 ultrasounds due to pre eclampsia... every time they told me girl! the last time being just two months before his birth when he showed us everything and there was nothing to see!!! they pulled him out in the operating room and said Oh she's a He!! lol and the same thing happened to my cousin a few months later.. i'd get another to be safe!!! 3ds are much better but i know we dont have them near my area lol
