Hiya I had my 16 week gender scan yesterday and I'm curious to see what everyone thinks?? They seemed very sure of the gender but more I look on other Google pics I'm not sure now!! X

Looks like a little boy to me... smile

mummyrich1988 Thu 23-Feb-17 22:18:10

They have said 99.9% sure girl to me so unsure now!!

Girl? Because there are three lines? That's what I remember but my youngest are 10 so it's been a while. Plus I remember they got one wrong at a scan around this stage. At 20 week scan it was clearer

If I'm looking at it right the second pic looks like it's a girl.

Looking at the second photo Our son was viewed at this angle for his gender scan and I seem to remember the shadow being much bigger between the legs for a boy.

3 lines is a girl, ur 12 week scan is also girly with the nub.

With that said I spoke to someone today who was told several times she was having a girl but a boy popped out.

I had a potty shot like you have and its VERY obvious he's a boy, yours looks like a girl to me x

This was my 16 week girl gender scan picture, I was told she was absolutely certain girl because of the three white lines.

DixieNormas Fri 24-Feb-17 07:01:46

I've had 3 and i could tell they were boys before they said, it was obvious they were boys

Yours looks like a girl to me

Girl for sure, I have 4 and have seen a lot of girly bits xx

I'm obviously clueless then wink to be fair I got the sex of my own baby wrong so it's hardly surprising!

mummyrich1988 Fri 24-Feb-17 16:04:36

That convinced they have got it wrong I'm going again tonight!! When I get something in my head I can't sleep lol so they are double checking tonight but another £55 down lol

3 lines = a girl

Just like bubs

That's a girl.

This is the problem when you have a gender scan too early. 16 weeks is the very earliest you can tell so there is plenty of room for error.

Is there any reason why your not waiting until your 20 weeks?

Why would you not trust a trained sonographer who could actually see the screen and instead ask a load of randomers who can see blurry pics only?

TataEsNC Fri 24-Feb-17 16:58:21

no doubt.
both my boys looked like boys...

GreenGoblin0 Fri 24-Feb-17 18:35:14

what's the point of having another scan ?! will you believe them this time?

MadgeMak Fri 24-Feb-17 18:38:17

What does it matter anyway? No sonographer will be able give you a 100% guaranteed it's a boy/girl anyway as there will always be a margin of error.

NameChange30 Fri 24-Feb-17 18:38:37

You're going for another scan?! hmm If you have money to burn there are charities you could donate to...

You've already wasted spent £55. Now trust the sonographer and wait until your 20 week scan to confirm.

It's difficult to call based on those images alone but I'd err on the side of girl. The sonographer probably saw more than that on the moving image though if she's so sure. Sometimes it's easier for a trained eye to see but then harder to produce a still image which is clear for the parents ifswim

I won't try to guess as I got mine wrong when she had been born..!

PuddingPie16 Fri 24-Feb-17 22:01:42

There are a lot of snardy comments on here about you spending more money on private scans..blah blah blah...ignore them! It is your money and not their business. Personally, I would wait until 20 weeks if you can (just because you don't have long to wait and it is free!) But if it eases your mind then go for it.

I know of someone who is going through the exact same situation and has had her 20 week scan where they couldn't even tell her due to baby's position! She is paying for another opinion because she can.

Just do what you feel most comfortable with but don't rely on people here knowing.

Good luck in your pregnancy! smile
