Has anyone else been told (I asked) the sex at their dating scan? The sonographer also does a lot of private work (so early gender scans etc) & she said she would be very very surprised if baby wasn’t a boy! She was fairly sure so we didn’t think any more of it.
Friends (inc midwives) have said it would be impossible to tell this early on though. Anyone been told this early & it’s been wrong/right? We really don’t mind either way however just wondered whether we should stop saying it’s a boy just in case haha
She was clear that it wasn’t a confirmed gender! We were talking about three different theories etc so she went it for a look. To be fair to her, it certainly looked like boy parts had already developed.
Both times we’ve been told the sex at 12 weeks and both times they were right. One boy and one girl. The doctor doing the scan on my daughter said it’s the shape of the pelvis that gives it away at that stage rather than which bits are present.
An experienced sonographer will sometimes be able to tell. I was told at 13 weeks (because the baby was likely to die before term and we wanted to name her). Of course, it isn't guaranteed at any gestation, but she must have been very confident to offer to tell you at 12 weeks.
For those of you that were interested, baby was confirmed a boy @ private 16week scan! The sonographer at the private scan said it’s definitely possible to tell at 12 weeks particularly on slimmer ladies & as long as there is plenty of fluid around baby!
