12 Week Ultrasound Boy Or Girl
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
If ultrasound measurements say a girl is 8 weeks pregnant, does that mean she slept with a guy around 8 weeks ago?
Im 29 weeks and 7 days had an ultrasound today and my baby weighs 3 pounds 5 ounces. Due date may 1 will she be a big or small baby?
My wife is 12 weeks 2 day pregnant. Her gyn. Did vaginal and normal ultrasound. He said he thinks the baby is a boy. How accurate the result?
Pretty good, but…: I would not decorate the nursery just yet. If well visualized, the gender of the baby can be accurately determined. However, 12 weeks is early. The baby is quite small. Reevaluation at the fetal anatomy screening between 18 and 21 weeks would be helpful. Even then, sometimes it's hard to tell, and people have been surprised at delivery. ...Read more
My wife is 12 weeks 1 day pregnant. Her gyn did vaginal and normal ultrasound. He said probably baby boy but need time to confirm. Is result accurate?
The word probably: Says it all. 12 weeks is quite early, and the doctor's use of the word probably means it is better than 50-50 but nowhere near 90% likely. Fetal anatomy screening ultrasound at 18 to 21 weeks would provide a better opportunity to confirm the baby's gender. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Baby girl born yesterday 6pound and 12 inch head circumference. Is her head fine I was told during pregnancy that she might have microcephaly?
Head measures small: Her weight is right around the 5th percentile for a newborn but her head is well below the 3rd percentile. The first head measurement after birth is difficult to rely on as there are things like "molding" (shape changes) from passing through the birth canal to consider.This info has to be put into context with the help of your pediatrician. They are there to assist you, don't hesitate to ask quest ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
33 wk pregnant, Dx hydronephrosis of 1kidney, was 10 last month now 12. Wants weekly ultrasound and 2xwk fetal mon. Excessive?
Here are some...: Why don't you bring this concern to your obs-doc? Clinically, at this stage of pregnancy, it is practically unnecessary to frequently repeat ultrasound imaging since there would be nothing that needs or could be done. At most, repeat it once before childbirth is taking place so to get idea if fetal hydronephrosis may interfere natural delivery; if possible, C-section may be required. So, ask doc.. ...Read more
I have a 1.2 CM endometrium thickness during my ultrasound 4 days after my menstration. Is it normal? I am 33 years old, married with 1 daughter (5 yo
My 8 week old baby girl only weighed 9lbs 7 ounces at her 8 week checkup but had grown 3 inches is this normal?
Maybe, maybe not: The pediatrician can tell from the growth measurements taken at birth, discharge from the hospital, the 2-week check, the 1-month check, and the 2-month check. Young babies grow quickly, generally over an ounce a day. A parent can call to make an appointment for a recheck whenever he or she is worried about a baby's growth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm a 36 year old woman pregnant with my first child. My first pregnancy ended in miscarriage - trisomy 23. Should I get a cvs test?
Talk with your OB: The risk for trisomy increases for women over age 35. A number of different chromosomal abnormalities - including different trisomies - can happen at any age. Most often, these cause severe problems and the pregnancy is lost. Rarely a trisomy or other chromosome problem is the result of a rearrangement that one parent silently carries. Be sure show your OB the test results from your miscarriage. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My 3 month old girl has a head circumference of 38.5 CM ..at birth she measured 34cms.m worried abt her low growth ..is she ok?
Within normal range: Both of these measurements are within the normal range and by themselves are not notable.Measurements of head circumference at this age is inconsistent from one observer to another. Head growth is better followed with serial measurements, done with the same technique and monitored over time. Two measurements will not establish a pattern while 3 or more likely give more information.Time will tell ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Can a 8 year with pubic hair but No deep voice get a 14 year old girl pregnant if She is on her period.
Hard to say: Pubic hair is stimulated by adrenal hormones separately from those of puberty. It does not mark the point of fertility. In reality, a male can have an erection at any age and females can get pregnant on any day of their cycle. Such a paring in my state would kand the 14 yo in juvenile hall for child sexual abuse. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How accurate is an ultrasound at 18 weeks 5 days in determining gender? We had 2 different techs; one told us girl and the other said it was a boy.
Can be difficult: I would not pick out gender specific clothes or decorations for the nursery. Sometimes it is very easy to see the "important bits", and other times, usually related to the position of the fetus, it can be very hard. ...Read more
