Gender Identification Correct At 20w6d Ultrasound

Lia - November 8

Hi Mommies! I was told at my 20w6d ultrasound that I am having a girl as identified by her two white lines (the labia). I was SO in shock when I was told this (I thought for sure it was a boy) that I didn't even ask the tech how sure SHE was, or what the percentages were. Do you think things "down there" are developed enough at this stage to make an accurate call? I just don't want to be surprised in the delivery room like I've heard other moms have been. Thanks for any insight!

I'm having a boy. Mine said 100% sure she even gave me a close up picture to make sure and showed me what everything was. Told her I didn't want to make a boy nursery and have a gir. ;-)

I am having a girl and my dr. was 99% sure. Like you, I thought it was a boy but I am sooo excited to be having a little girl and most importantly a healthy baby!

Lia: I'm 20 wks, and yesterday, I just found out I was having a girl too, *my now second girl* they said don't go Pink crazy, but they're pretty sure... In an ultrasound its hard to tell, unless it is a boy and the baby is positioned right, from what I was told, but by the 20th week, if it's a boy, the t______es are THERE. I thought I was having a boy too, because this preg. is going different, compaired to my first born. when are you due? I'm due March 30th

Thanks for all your responses - keep them coming please!! Terra, I'm due on March 16th and this is my second girl. I was convinced otherwise but now I'm getting used to the idea and am happy about it. Poor DH is going to be overrun by girls - he has one too, so this will be the third!! Where can we get a multi kid discount on chast_ty belts?! Anyway, most of all I am happy and feel blessed that this baby is perfect and healthy, regardless of whether or not it has a weenie!! Thanks again ladies!

Lia, the genitals are pretty developed at 20 weeks. The 2 or 3 white lines is supposed to be the most accurate indication of a girl. The tech pointed out the white lines to me but still said she was only 80% sure it was a girl. I am very nervous too, that we will get a big suprise in the delivery room and it will be a boy! But of course I am so please that my baby is healthy and thats all I really care about.

Lia, out of curiosity.. Why did you think it was a boy this time? Was this pregnancy really different? Did you not have any nausea or something like that? Congrats on your little girl!! And I'll let you know if I come across good deals on those chast. belts ;-)

well at 16wks 5 d i was told i was hving a boy and at 24wks 5d he confirmed it

Lia - They can definetely tell at 20 weeks what the s_x is as they are developed by then. Unless the baby is blocking them then it's harder to tell. I'm having a girl and I could see three white lines between her guessing there for me!

Thanks for all the great responses, ladies! I appreciate it so much. **Camilla, to answer your question, this pregnancy is slightly different than my previous one, but maybe it was my burning desire for a boy that had me convinced it was. That is probably why I was so shocked. And the fact that I really didn't have much nausea, and in the beginning I craved carbs and salty foods. So much for "mother's intuition" I guess! I'm just thrilled this baby is perfect and healthy (I've had 3 m/c between pregnancies and probably won't have any more children) and I can't wait to meet her. Or should I call the baby "Pat" or "Terry" until it is born and reveals its TRUE gender?! LOL. All the best to you mommies out there, and thanks again for your input!

I am having a girl and saw three white lines. My hubby said "I don't see any nuggets" and the tech replied "no, it's a hamburger!". I can send you a picture of the ultrasound if you want to compare but my tech (and hubby who has 4 boys) were VERY convinced it is a girl. My email is [email protected]
