The Placenta Theory?

There is a theory about placental attachments and the gender of the baby. As the theory goes, if the placenta is on the LEFT, then its a girl. If it is on the RIGHT, it is a boy. I find this theory is often correct, but then again, I am scanning the patient at 18+ weeks, and can see the placenta clearly, as well as the gender. The theory that uses the placenta studies the use of colour doppler to identify the placenta at 6-7 wks. Personally, I would not chance exposing a teeny tiny developing embryo to the high levels of sound waves that is used for colour doppler. Just a whole risk vs benefit thing. Without colour, the placenta is tough to identify accurately this early on. 12 wks would be more reasonable.

Posting a picture of the baby and asking where the placenta is not accurate here unfortunately. The tech who took your image, did it from an angle that best shows the baby or nuchal fold or so forth. She has to take the pic with the probe sideways, or up and down, or obliqued to get this "angle". Sadly, if the angle of the probe is not documented on the image, it is impossible to guess where it "actually" is. To be honest, sometimes the tech does not think of this probe angle, she is just interested in getting the best shot possible of your babe!

 Does that mean you could ask the tech what side the placenta is on during a scan?
