Hi everyone, I have a problem. I didn't want to know the sex of the baby so we didn't ask but during the ultrasound I'm pretty sure I got a glimpse of what looked like boy parts. Is it possible that it would be that obvious that my inexperienced eyes would see it?
For those of you that are having boys and saw that on the u/s what did you see? Was it obvious to you?
Thanks so much for your help!

I saw my sister's ultrasound photos. Her boy had his legs spread apart. You could see the calf, knee, thigh, then at the top you could pretty clearly see the bumps of the two testicles and a penis hanging down. It looked more like a group of three balls, though (doesn't a boy swell because of the estrogen or something like that?). I'm trying very hard right now to look at the photo as if I didn't know what it was. I'm not entirely sure I would have recognized it on my own. The other leg kind of fades out so I'm not sure I would have even identified the legs to begin with. So there's a very indefinite answer for you!

SE, thanks for your reply! True that I can't be sure. I asked some other people and it is true that the best way i can describe what I saw is something that looked like a turtle!

Congratulations on your baby turtle! Be careful with breastfeeding if it's a snapping turtle! :) If you ask my husband if he hopes it is a boy or a girl, he'll say he hopes it is a puppy.

hehe.. oh well either way i'm happy! I won't know for sure until the little guy or girl is born!

Citrouille, It's a boy!!! My ultrasound had a turtle too. Congrats

Just had an u/s done today at 15 weeks...and my OB-Gyn took a snapshot of the baby from the bottom and I saw this pair of small round things (testicles) and then a bit on the side I saw this little penis sticking out! That was so cool to see. Yes, I'm having a boy!


citrouille - May 25th, 2005 1:13 PM

that's what it looked like to me! it was a bum shot from behind.. could see its legs and between its legs a little something extra ;)
Congrats eurowoman on your boy!

That's so funny I had my u/s yesterday and I was gonna say we are having a BOY and it looked like a turtle! You may view it on stephsfam.piczo.com later on tonight (thats when I will download them)


citrouille - May 25th, 2005 4:37 PM

ok thanks Stephanie i'll have a look and compare when you upload the pic! I had a look at the cassette of my ultrasound again and am pretty convinced that it's a boy.

I am having my 18-20 week scan tomorrow so i will look out for a turtle. I live in fiji so I am not sure what the ultra sound equipement is like and if it will be clear enough to see but unless I actually see a penis I will not be convinced as my sister-in-law in australia saw a girl every scan and out popped a boy!!


SE - May 25th, 2005 4:48 PM

Citrouille, what do you mean that you looked at your cassette? You have the whole thing recorded, not just still photos? Does that have anything to do with the 4D technology? I want the really cool ultrasound but I'm guessing I might have to pay more than my insurance will cover. Has anyone done that?


Dallia - May 25th, 2005 4:53 PM

I had an u/s at 13 weeks in Sydney and they put it on a tape for me to watch my little bean play around in there. I think some of the newer machines can burn in onto disc but I am not expecting anything like that at my scan tomorrow

They said I'm having a boy but we couldn't tell the boys part from the legs. I wish I could help you but I keep looking at the picture with a arrow pointing at it but I still can't make it out.


Nick - May 25th, 2005 11:33 PM

I am having a boy. She gave me a picture with an arrow pointing to the penis. I could not see anything, but now that I look at it again, it does kind of resemble a turtle.


citrouille - May 26th, 2005 3:05 AM

stephanie,
It was just an ordinary ultrasound but the doctor recorded it for us. Apparently this isn't done everywhere..
I was tempted by the 4D ultrasounds too but then I heard that having too many u/s isn't good for the baby so I've decided not to.
