So, unless you tech is obsessed with gender, and really really knows what they are looking for (ie ME), I always recommend to NOT get a gender scan in the 14th week. Even early 15th week can be trouble!

Here are some pics of my lump, to see the range of images all taken from the same baby, the same day. 14w4d. Babe is measuring 15wk though.

A lot of great kids, and a full time job mean very little time to play! Miss you all!!
Thank you In-Gender and Maureen for giving me a place to dream, and the tools to chase those dreams<3

 Wow, I do see how you can be thrown off by certain shots!  I can see being told both boy or girl depending at what angle or shot you're looking at.Surprise

Congrats again on little "Miss Kitty"Hearts

all the photos looks girly. You just have to look closely and make sure you choose a tech with a lot of experience like CC :)

I was able to find out my baby was a girl at 14 weeks. I alo had a very good tech who is right over 90% of the time :)

Miss Kitty, LOL! Thanks for posting this, Charliecats. My obsessed husband and the obsessed techs (lol) at the imaging center he works at were like, "LET'S SCAN YOU!" yesterday. As you know, we are the same due date. Well, one minute she was like, "OMG, that's SO a boy!". Then she was like, "wait.. wait... not sure and would get a very "miss kitty" shot as well. As you can imagine I'm frustrated and just want NO MORE SCANS until twenty weeks. FEH! I've run the gamut of emotions this last day. I wish I had never been scanned, especially by someone who is not a full time OB sonographer. She got good pics, but I really didn't feel she knew what she was really looking at. It was so weird...
all done.
