Hey guys..

Just had my 16 week gender scan and have been told it's a BOY which I'm so happy about as i already have a little girl.. but I was so sure it's another girl so kinda in would love to know what you guys think it's is so I've attached a pic! Thanks girlies xx

Maya I get that you're a bit excited but they've told you it a boy. Do you want us to debate that it might actually be a girl (with a clear set of balls and a penis between its legs)?

If a trained professional said it’s a boy, I reckon they are probably fairly spot on. Your having a boy!

Just looking at that picture, there is no denying at all that is a boy

Congratulations 🍼 🍼🍼

It’s not a gender scan.

Mayababy Thu 12-Oct-17 16:42:02

Lolll😂 thanks guyssss yes I am excited and still can't believe it but I better stop and start believing I am having a little boy! Thanks lovelies xx @karatekitten and @pinkheart514..

Sorry what do you mean?

It’s not a gender scan.

It's an anomaly scan.

MotherOfDragons22 Thu 12-Oct-17 16:45:44

She's clearly gone for a private scan. She's sixteen weeks and nhs doesn't do 4d !!!

KarateKitten Thu 12-Oct-17 16:46:04

Dances, it's a 3D 16 week scan. So clearly not an anomoly scan. If you want to be really pointed you could have said it's a sex scan.

Mayababy Thu 12-Oct-17 16:48:34

Lol thanks karatekitten and mothersofdragons.. the name of the thread is 16 week gender scan lol so not sure what makes you think it's an anomaly scan dances.. Yes I did go for a private gender scan.

YouCantArgueWithStupid Thu 12-Oct-17 16:49:52

Yeah it’s sex not gender

orangeowls Thu 12-Oct-17 16:56:23

I’d say definitely a boy 😂

Mayababy Thu 12-Oct-17 16:57:21

@youcantarguewithstupid.. So would you like to explain why the private clinics call it a "16 week gender scan".

Mayababy Thu 12-Oct-17 16:58:19

Thanks 😊 @orangeowls

TeaAndToast85 Thu 12-Oct-17 17:11:57

Awww congratulations! Clearly a boy flowers

Mayababy Thu 12-Oct-17 17:12:51

Thankyou hunni xx @teaandtoast85

YouCantArgueWithStupid Thu 12-Oct-17 17:15:05

@Mayababy because they’re not aware of the political issues around the terms sex and gender?

FenellaMaxwellsPony Thu 12-Oct-17 17:20:21

I don't get why you are asking randoms online after a trained professional has told you and you can clearly see male genitalia in the photo though? confused

Roxx1516 Thu 12-Oct-17 17:26:58

Congrats @mayababy !! @youcantarguewithstupid if the private clinics call it a gender scan then why should we call it anything else. Gender (meaning) male or female, it doesn't matter, it's a gender scan to see if its male or female. Stop trying to correct people no one cares about the "Pollitical" issues its a load of shit! It's either a boy or a girl and it's called a gender scan weather you people like it or not

ChocolatePancake Thu 12-Oct-17 17:27:29

Jesus wept. We're not allowed to say gender now? Congratulations on your boy by the way flowers

Mayababy Thu 12-Oct-17 17:34:03

Lol gosh is it wrong to ask for an opinion.. I know a trained professional has told me but I just wanted know from other mum's..
Thanks all you lovely ladies @chocolatepancake and @Roxx1516 xx

FenellaMaxwellsPony Thu 12-Oct-17 17:41:55

But you can literally SEE a penis - it's a bit like checking if water is wet confused
