I am 21 weeks pregnant with my 3rd baby. My first 2 were boys, and I had hoped they were both girls, but still had the possibility of #3 being a girl, so I didn't take the disappointment as hard.
I had my 20w u/s last week. The doctor himself the u/s, but after doing so digging, I foudn out he rarely does them, and his machine is about 15-20 years old. The most he could say about the heart was that is looks like it has 2 sides (my first was born with a heart defect, so this is kind of important info for us)
After looking for about 5 minutes, he says, well, I think I am about 80% sure it is a boy, there is something between the legs, but it could be cord. He tried to show us, but coudn't get a very good angle, one second there was nothing, the next second we saw a white blob between the legs, then it was gone again.
I am in the process of trying to get referred out to a specialist for the follow up u/s the end of the month.If not though, then I will have an appointment with the same doc, on the same machine.
Is there much of a chance he was wrong? I had my heart set on a girl, this is our last baby. I swayed for a girl with diet and suppliments. The chinese gender calendar said boy, and it also said my boys were girls. I realize this isn't all that accurate, but it gave me hope that it would be wrong again! haha! Cheri22 told me it was a girl. I have been so sick with this pregnancy, even this week I am still throwing up a bit. I have never had morning sickness like this before.
I am really trying to not hope that he was wrong, but I can't help it. DH is not convinced it is a boy, and my gut has been telling me girl. Even with my boys, before I found out they were boys, I was calling them he - this time, I have referred to it as she a lot.
here is the only picture I got from this u/s
here are a few previous u/s pics if they help at all...
what are your thoughts?
