Does this look like a boy?? or just the umbilical cord??

I ahd my sonogram done about 19 weeks, and the tech determined it to be a girl.. but now that i'm looking at the picture, im starting to have second thoughts. What do you guys think?

  • Definatly a girl. A boy, you would see the testicals so it looks like a turtle. they actualy call it a turtle shell.

  • I had a girl and my ultrasound looked similar to that. The boy ones that I have seen seem to be much more prominent.

    If you go to - it shows a boy ultrasound pic from 19 weeks.

  • only the doctor can really make sense of it. if they said its a girl they probably saw labia didnt they? and if it was a boy, there would very clearly be a scrotum. that could be the cord, u never know. just ask the doctor to check again and ask them to show u the labia

  • Looks like a girl. I agree, with my boy I saw more testicles than anything. That looks like the cord to me...

  • You NEVER really know for sure until they are in your arms!! My DD looked like taht though, and my DS you could see the testi sack.

  • thats a girl, the cord is too far up to be a boy. plus as mentioned above, you would see the sack
