  • My parents thought until the 8th month that I was a boy... But probably I heard the name they wanted to give me so i turned into a girl. So anything is possible:)

  • A penis doesn't "Drop". It's either there or it isn't there, there isn't any time when it suddenly appears. A child's genitalia is determined well before an Ultrasound can detect it visually. And there's always a penis there even if we can't see it on the screen. However, U/S techs can be mistaken due to the way the child is laying or just they didn't look at it right.

  • Depends on *when* she has the U/S.
    At a certain time the genders will look differently, prior to this, they look too close to know.

  • NO. If fact it's MUCH more likely for the ultra sound to mistake the baby for a boy than for a girl. All babies look like little boys down there at first which is why most people who are told the sex of their baby before 16 weeks are told that it's a boy and MANY times that is incorrect.

    If they said it was a girl and they saw 3 lines (which means girl) then most likely you are having a girl.
