Good morning ladies,

I am new here smile

We had our 21 week scan yesterday! Everything is going well and I am so happy!

Baby wriggled all the way through and the amount of detail was incredible, we even saw a little yawn!

This is our first, and we are keeping baby’s sex a secret, any guesses on boy or girl by the scan pic? I am happy with either, I just want a healthy, happy baby! 

It's a boy or a girl. I can tell these things!

LeeloD Wed 09-Mar-16 09:21:57

How weird Chippednailvarnish, that's exactly what I was thinking too!

No clue but congratulations!

Thank you smile I am so excited. This grey rainy day and being stuck at work can't ruin it!

To find out the sex you need the "potty shot" I.e upwards between their legs... You can't tell from a side profile!

Awww looks like a girl to me (so I'm guessing boy as I'm always wrong)

LeeloD Wed 09-Mar-16 10:00:39

Haha "potty shot"! We have a few others, but not in that area. I've seen some people say you can guess by the head shape, not sure I believe that!

Does anyone know if the sonographer actually checks that area if you don't want to know the sex?

LeeloD Wed 09-Mar-16 10:01:32

Mummamayhem, our family seem to think it looks like a girl too smile

If you want it kept a secret, why on earth are you asking our opinions?

LeeloD Wed 09-Mar-16 10:23:22

Because it's fun guessing and chatting. Lighten up!

Yes, the sonographer checks on baby's genitals. Definitely either a boy or a girl from that angle!

MintyBojingles Wed 09-Mar-16 11:08:50

Yes it's definitely one or the other! grin

Looks like a lovely little baby to me :-) Congratulations!

LeeloD Wed 09-Mar-16 13:45:07

Thank you smile

Girl! The skull is very round and that's a good indicator apparently. Was certainly true for my DD.

LeeloD Thu 10-Mar-16 12:18:47

I think girl. I would have thought you would see hints of a willy with legs bent like that!
