Determination Of Gender At 14 Weeks

I had an ultrasound today and I am 14 weeks 5 days preggers. The doctor said everything with the baby looked good and that it looks like we are going to have a boy. Are the baby's genitals already fully formed at 14 weeks? How accurate is an ultrasoun a 14 weeks? I don't want to go out and buy blue stuff if it is not that accurate. I have heard that they tell you boy and it could be a girl!! Did anyone experience false gender determination through ulrasounds?

Well, I heard that they can tell as early as 16 weeks, but I have never heard them checking at 14 weeks.... but I'm sure if they saw boy parts, it could possibly be a boy! I would wait until later on if you have another ultrasound to make sure just in case! My cousins mom thought the whole time she was having a boy and when she had the baby, it was a girl! I think sometimes it can be mistaken because they do check early and all of the boy parts may not be formed. With a girl they see 3 lines and one could be mistaken for a p___s. I don't think it happens much, but I would wait if I were you! :-)

It is developed but thats not the issue here. The problem with that at that time is losts of times they mistake the cord for the p___s. I am pretty sure he did not give you a % of accuracy either. My cousin had an U/S done at 12 weeks and was told "we think its a boy , however it could be the cord" But she had a boy!

They even mistake it sometimes at a 20 week ultrasound, but i'd wait until that ultrasound before buying stuff! However it is more likely it is a boy because their more likely to miss that extra part on a girl. I know this is also not very accurate for everyone but a lot of people i find, it seems to be true that if you're carrying high it's a girl and low it's a boy.

My husbands coworker just had a littlw girl last month they were told it was a boy via u/s. 14 weeks is very early for them to even be looking. you should wait till you are at least 20 weeks it is much easier to tell!

all babies have what's called the indifferent p___s....meaning too early an ultrasound for gender will show every baby is a boy.... as the baby developes the p___s will either remain if its a boy...or split down the middle and grow into the baby if its a girl....look it up it is called the indifferent p___s.... I can't remember when it is safe to consider it has "transformed" lo kept its legs crossed and hands in the way when we went to check... :)

I worked at a hospital when I was pregnant and had a few early ultra sounds and they all said I was having a boy until my 20 week when we found out we were having a girl. I

I tried to look up the indifferent p___s and I havent found a thing....anywhere in particualr we can go to read about this?

ok the book I have this in is called "from conception to birth a life unfolds" ok and now that I've pulled it back out here's what it says..."though the indifferent p___s is visible the s_x of the baby is not clear from external appearance until 12 weeks" also " it the urethral groove (the opening in the middle) closes up then a boy will be born..if the urethral groove stays open a girl is about to arrive." but from what that says it is developed by 12 weeks.... u could look up urethral groove...or try looking up the really is a great explains step by step but also gives in uterne pictures of a developing u can seewhat ur baby looks like each step... sorry I didn't specify earlier...I will alo see if I can find info online about it

I was told at 14 weeks baby was a girl but not to hold my breath on it. I am now 34 weeks have had 10 u/s since everything is still girl.


tish212 - November 2

ok unless u r looking for either p___s enlargement or a p___s size survery don't look up the indifferent p___s (i just tried that's all I got) I looked up urethral groove...but wikopedia say only boys have it and it closes as their p___s developes...but the books shows a boy and a girl with I'm confused....I will ask my dr next week when I go back again... but let me say this...on my 2nd u/s the tech said boy...on the 3rd she said maybe a girl? so we decided to just wait and see...since either time she wasn't u might want to hold off on buying stuff or keep the tgs on it...incase u need to exchange dr said for us to not buy gender specific stuff since the techs can be wrong...and he said he'd hate to see us spend tons of $$ on stuff for the wrong s_x...I recommend that book I mentioned though especially as a present for newly pregnant shows day to day pics of early pregnancy so u can see what ur baby looks like each day as it devlopes....and it tells the days each organ is formed...when finers form...fingernails...etc.... :) sorry I recommended people look up the indifferent p___s w/o first checkin it myself...silly me...

oh i heard 3d ultrasound will give you a better chance at figuring out the s_x to if you plan on getting one.

Thank you for all your responses. I think I am going to hold off on buying BLUE things for now until I get my 20 week scan. I was just too excited and I had to get an ultrasound. I think it just confused me more and made me more anxious to find out :) I will creat a new post with what my 20 week scan determines.
