i went for a ultrasound at 16 weeks 3 days, cause they told me at 16 weeks they could give me the s_x of the baby! needless to say i was counting down the days, and then, the baby wasn't showing his/her stuff! iam sooo dissapointed! now i have to wait another 3 weeks, which seems like an eternity! the baby was facing towards us. i was thinking if there was a p__s, something would have shown, but who the heck knows. she wouldn't even guess for me, though i would not have held it against her if she was wrong. anyone else have a shy baby, and have been dissapointed? what are the chances this could happen again, at my next u/s? thanks! mich__le

lol yes you are not alone..my first ultrasound i didnt bother asking though i was only 15 weeks along,my 21 week one i ended up askiing and they told me that lil bub was cover it y having the cord between its legs! lol both my husband and i dont mind ,we are guessing he/she wants to keep it a surprise :)

i don't think you're getting another ultrasound unless there is a problem. insurance companies only pay for one. i had my one and only 3 weeks ago, and the lady said she was having trouble seeing the "goods" then in about 30 seconds she tells me it's a boy and shows me the p___s. well i would be better off not knowing cause what she pointed to was way too big to be the p___s. i have 2 boys already so i know. i went online to double check myself by looking at ultrasound pics of boys and yup what she pointed to was def too big. but i won't have another u/s so i have to wait until the baby is born. so right now i am thinking its a boy? but who knows. only when the baby is born will i know for sure. and i hope she was right cause i am not going to feel like returning a whole bunch of baby gifts after i give birth if out comes a girl. so michelle, just register for everything neutral and await the surprise from your little bundle. good luck and best wishes. is this your first baby?

I know the feeling well. For my first I wanted a girl yet got an u/s picture saying "p___s and s____m". For my second I wanted a girl and after 5 u/s they still could not tell me. I had my feeling for the s_x of both of them that my boy was a boy and guess what... my girl feeling was a girl. What do you feel you may be having. I know you can be better prepared if you know what your having but the suspense is exciting. If all else fails buy mint green and peach clothes. Thats what I did:)

HI AGAIN!! I HAVE GOTTEN 4 ULTRASOUNDS SO FAR. IAM HAVING ANOTHER ONE ON 3/22, SO HOPEFULLY, I'LL KNOW THE s_x THEN. IAM JUST TOO IMAPTIENT TO WAIT THE WHOLE 40 WEEKS, LOL. ANYONE ELSE FEEL THAT WAY?? I HAVE A FEELING IT'S A GIRL, BUT I'LL LET YOU KNOW THE SURE ANSWER HOPEFULLY ON THAT DAY. I HAVE A SECOND SAC STILL INSIDE ME. AN UNDEVELOPED TWIN. I DON'T KNOW WHY IT'S STILL THERE AT 17 WEEKS, BUT IT IS, AND SCARES ME ALITTLE. I MAY GET EXTRA U/S CAUSE OF THIS, I DON'T KNOW. THE DR. SCHEDULES THEM, AND I JUST GO, I LOVE SEEING THE BABY. MY NEXT ONE WILL BE A LEVEL 2, SO HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE NICE AND CLEAR FOR US. I CAN'T IMAGINE JUST GETTING 1 U/S THE WHOLE PREGNANCY. THIS IS MY 3RD BABY, AND WITH BOTH I HAD SEVERAL. THIS ONE THE MOST, CAUSE I WENT TO A SPECIALIST TO GET PREGNANT, SO THEY CHECK MORE ON PROGRESS, I GUESS. THANKS FOR SHARING STORIES LADIES. KEEP THE THREAD GOING, I LOVE TALKING ABOUT THIS!

PS- DO YOU THINK IT IS EASIER FOR THEM TO PINPOINT BOY PARTS ON U/S? I HAD 2 BOYS, AND IT WAS CLEAR, AND SHE SAID SHE HAD A GUESS, BUT WOULDN'T SHARE IT. THAT WAS FRUSTRATING, I WOULDN'T HAVE HELD IT AGAINST HER IF SHE WAS WRONG, JUST A FUN GUESS WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE. DH THINKS THAT MAY MEAN SHE POSSIBLY IS THINKING GIRL, CAUSE OBVIOUSLY NO BOY STUFF WAS VIEWED,BUT WHO CAN BE SURE, JUST JUDGING BY THAT? BUT I HAVE A HUNCH IT WILL BE PINK 4 ME!! I'LL POST WHEN I KNOW. IAM ALSO CHECKING OUT 3-D, 4-D U/S. BY ME IT'S $300 BUT IT SEEMS SOOOOOOO COOL!! LATER:)

My first and third were shy. My first was sitting indian style facing my spine. They tried everything to get her to move and turn but no go. She would just kick and stay put. My third was the same way. she was sideways facing my back and just wouldn't show the goods. I had 2 different ultrasounds with both of those pregnancies and never did find out until birth. My middle child was not shy a bit and they told me they couldn't guarantee the s_x but if it was a girl he would need surgical alteration to look like one. Apparently he was pretty well endowed and it showed clearly. Of course he was a boy. This time I'm dyiing to know. It has been 8 years inbetween and I don't have any baby stuff. I really don't want to go neutral and I don't want to be doing all my shopping after delivery! I'm crossing my fingers and hoping they can tell the s_x. I'm scheduled for my next us at 20 weeks. They say after 18 weeks it's easier to tell the s_x. Hope you get to find out at your next u/s! good luck.

The same happened to me, I found out at 24 weeks thats how long I had to w8. I too was so dissapointed by wen 24 weeks came it was confirmed that I was having a boy and then again at 27w and 3d. So it's all worth the w8, what i did was go an an think 'if i dont get to know then it's not the end of the world' coz i found that if i looked forward to it too much it wasn't happning. Hopefully they will beable to tell you nex time!! Good Luck!

I am going to find out at 19 weeks with a 3D/4D Ultra Sound.... I hope that this u/s method is more accurate than the normal (2D) ones....

 

happy - March 28

just be happy you are having a healthy baby, regardless of boy or girl.

 

catlynne - March 28

yes, I went in at 22 weeks for my ultrasound and baby wasnt cooperating. I am now 25 weeks and my doc has another one scheduled in 2 weeks so hopefully we will find out then. I found out with my two oldest daughters on the first try. It was very disapointing to me even though all we hope for is a healthy baby it is nice to find out .

Hey Michelle, This happened to a friend of mine and she had a girl. I think that boy parts are easier to identify. Good luck, I can't wait to find out what you're having. I'm 14 weeks pregnant and I've already had two u/s the first one was a v____al and the second wasn't. I can't imagine just having one u/s. Good luck.

at least u get another ultrasound! here u only get one at 18 weeks and if they dont find out thats it til birth.

 

monica - March 30

heather, same where I live. Unless you are high risk you only get one u/s. And your only u/s you get they only care about the organs and measurements (which is good) but they wont take the time to push to see the s_x of the baby. If you can see it your lucky otherwise until birth.

 

MICHELLE - March 30

HEY M, WELP, YOU WERE RIGHT, IT IS A GIRL! I HAD MY LEVEL 2 ULTRASOUND LAST WEEK, AND SHE FINALLY SHOWED "PINK" PARTS! SHE WAS PULLING AT HER FEET, AND EVEN STUCK OUT HER TOUNGE, IT WAS SO CUTE! I DRANK ORANGE JUICE, AND HAD A DOUGNUT BEFOREHAND, AND SHE WAS VERY LIVELY. PEOPLE SUGGESTED THAT TO ME, AND IT WORKED LIKE A CHARM! HOPE EVERYONE GETS THEIR NEWS SOON, IF NOT ALREADY! THANKS FOR ALL OF THE POSTS:) MICHELLE

 

Foxy - March 31

Congratulations! I'm so excited now! I go for my 20 wk scan in 3 wks. I can't wait to find out if it's a boy or a girl. Hope my baby isn't shy. I will try the donut and orange juice trick. :-) I don't mind what it is, I just feel lucky to be having a baby, but I'm too impatient to wait until it's born.
