Boy Ultrasound At 20 Weeks
At my 18 week ultrasound i did not inquire, but have a rather convincing image of a boy. Not sure how to acurately tell. Pic is looking down on body?
You should ask: The "boy" picture is one that many untrained eyes can pick out, for sure. That said, the male/female genitals can have significant overlap in ultrasound appearance, so best to leave it to the experts.

How accurate is ultrasound done in gyn office at 16 weeks preg. He said we got a boy as legs were open. Could it be the unemolical cord. How accurate?
Our gyn said that our fetus gender is boy 18 weeks after preg. Using his clinic ultrasound. He said 100% as baby cooperated and legs open. Is it 100%?

You will know for sure after birth. What is the rush? Curiosity and satisfaction have a price, and this isn't worth it. ...Read more
