2 Bumps

Saw two puffy things on ultrasound??????

I had my 12 weeks ultrasound and we got a great look at the privates but all I could see was two puffy things. There definately wasn't the 3 lines for a girl and definately not a penis. And we also didn't see a nub. So what would two puffy things be? A swollen labia or the testicles? What is your guess?

  • I think twelve weeks is a little early to tell anyway. I didnt think they could tell until at least 16 weeks.

  • The genitalia doesn't differentiate until later in the pregnancy, like 15 weeks (at the earliest).

  • The sex organs look identical in boys or girls until about 14 weeks when a nub either becomes a penis and testicles or a clitoris and vaginal lips. The best way to show this is the small section of the PBS Nova's Life's Greatest Miracle documentary which came out in the late 80's or so....but it shows you exactly how they look at that stage:

    This. Most doctors don't even look until 15 weeks.
