Gender Scan Incorrect?


I had a scan at 15+5 where the technician said she was 99% sure it was a boy, but when I showed my midwife today (18+5) she said it might end up being a girl?? She was a sonographer for years so I trust her opinion - she said it looks like boy parts but because it was so early it could be an enlarged clitoris and labia, and that it's entirely possibly it could look this much like a penis.

Does anyone else have scans/stories they can compare? I know usually girls have nothing between their legs, but like I said it was a super early scan, and apparently it can happen.

This is mine. They too are pretty sure it's a boy (not 100% due to location of cord). I'd say boy. But ultrasound is never 100% so you won't know until you give birth.

I'd say boy. They wouldn't offer gender scans from 16 weeks if it wasn't pretty easy to tell by that point.

It definitely looks boy to me.. I don't have a digital copy of my son's ultrasound but it looked very much like that.

That looks like a boy to me. Are you in the June Jewels FB group? I posted my 18 week scan from yesterday with a potty shot and you can see what girl bits look like. Definitely NOT like your scan. I think your midwife was just being cautious.

I can't attach my file, but it looks a lot like a clearer version of my gender scan this time, and we're having a boy. I didn't get a pic of it but at my anatomy scan the technician got us a view pretty much exactly like that and said "I'm not allowed to tell you I'm 100% sure but that could hardly be anything else could it" lol
When I had my lg the technician told us that they look for 3 lines for a girl.
Also remember that your midwife is only seeing that one photo, and the ultrasound technician had a lot of views while they were doing the scan.
