A question for those having boys...

So I had my scan on Tuesday and ask to know the gender. the u/s guy first said he couldn't tell the gender as the cord was wrapped between bubs legs and then he said boy. But it was so quick neither hubby nor I saw anything but a whiteish line. Had a quick look at u/s on line and with the boys you can certainly see all the "boy bits"

So I'm just wondering did you see a line or actually "boy bits" in your scan to confirm it was a boy?

Thanks original.gif

I'm glad I'm not the only one people are saying it too.

**ruth** Our ultrasound tech showed us his bits between his legs and it was definitely a third leg (as she stated) which looked like an extra white line to me.
I will need to go back and look at the ultrasound dvd to check.

...boy. Well the tech thinks it may be a boy at "no where near 100%"... Haha! Baby is very uncooperative during ultrasounds everytime I have one. But the tech did have a second look later on and showed us what she thought she could make out of "his extra bits."  Stubborn little boy on the way, making me the only female in the house...animals included. :-)

Hi, by this stage you should definitely be able to see the penis and scrotum quite clearly. If you can't and they can't definitely see the lines of a girl then it's about an 80% chance it's a girl.

Actually somewhere in a box I have an ultrasound photo of my first son at 20 weeks. If I find it, I will post it so you can see what I mean. It is as clear as the drawings you see on a toilet door of penis and testes. Quite funny really. The sonographer gave us that one to show at his 21st.

We definitely saw boy bits with our DS and now with this one have seen the three lines... I had to have two scans for both before I believed it but that's just me and both bubs were quite cooperative...

Mmmmm not sure about your description though **ruth** - are you having another scan? Maybe ask them to show you how they can tell the difference and hopefully baby will cooperate original.gif
