20 Week Scan Was Told By Sonogropher She Was 80% Sure It Was a Girl.....?


Hiya Everyone

Went for my 20 week scan yesterday at Hull Royal Infirmary, Baby is extremely healthy which is fab news but the little blighter had its legs crossed when we were trying to find out the gender. The sonographer said she was focusing on the 'lines; she could see and that with her being around that bit for a while she didnt detect any boy bits and was therefore '80% sure it was a girl'. I left the room a bit confused none the wiser as i went in my partner is dead cert its a girl but im contemplating going for just a gender scan.....just to be safe....has anyone else had this experience if so what was the outcome?

As far as pregnancy symptoms i have spots which i never used to get , gone up a few bra sizes not put much weight on in fact only about 6/8 lb max still in an 8 but got a tiny bump....no cravings as yet neither just gone off the usual coffee and pizza oh well....roll on xmas eve...

Cheers Ladies xx

Hiya. I was told at my scan she couldn't be totally sure but it looked like a girl shaped bottom (baby was in breach position so she couldn't see the actual bits, just her rear end lol). I took this as it was pretty much definate, as I thought if she really really wasn't sure she'd have said she couldn't tell and tough luck/ come back another time. We had already booked a 4d scan for 28 weeks, so when we went to that we just got them to confirm the gender there, and she was a girl.

Hi, I'm from Hull too, with my first baby's scan at hull royal I got told 80%girl and they were totally right. Think they have to do this to cover themselves. Congrats on your girl xx

All hospitals dont say 100% so you cant be mad if they get it wrong

They are quite experienced though, and if she says she thinks its a girl it probably is at ours she said 'Well I can see 3 bright white lines which means most probably a girl.' I think I read somewhere if you see the 3 lines clearly its like 99% certain xx

At my 20wk scan the sonographer told me she couldn't see boy parts or girl parts and as with a boy she said you normally see something sticking up/hanging down it made her think I was having a girl.

I saw all the angles she looked at and it was hard to see how LO could have been a boy - I went out and brought some pink clothes but booked myself in for a private scan for 24wks. 100% girl. x

If you are worried, book yourself another scan! Best way to find out!! I had a gender scan at Babybond and they saiod that if baby was inh a funny position during the scan and they could not tell, they would give me a drink, let me have a wonder around, see if bubs would move and even if that didn't work, they would book me another appointment free of charge until they could confirm.

Luckly, my little lady is NOT shy!!!!!

Brill opportunity to see baby again too - also saw 4d and got an amazing pic! The scan cost about 80 but was well worth it!

Hey hun, I've never had any doubt over bubs gender (LO isn't shy when it comes to opening her legs, just when we want to see her face ) but just to say I had a private gender scan at 16 weeks and they spent SO much time and effort to make sure they could give me the very best verdict that I was completely convinced with what they said. I'd recommend getting one because you get a high level of attention that you simply can't get at the hospital because they don't have the time and obviously aren't that bothered whether you find out or not x

I was told with DS2 70% Boy at 20wk scan....But that wasnt a high enough percentage! So I booked for a private scan a week after....Was confirmed as Boy (& double confirmed at birth!)

With this LO I had a gender scan at 16wks & they said 90% girl....Still I was so excited for my 20wk scan to confirm & it did

I would say, if you have the money, get a private scan, for 2 reasons, one to put your mind at rest & two, because they are such a wonderfull bonding experience...

Hey Ladies

Thanks for all the responses nice to know i wasnt the only one...my god i was left in a confused state ha ha....all i could imagine was going into the shops still and not knowing what colour clothes to pick up lol! I will see if i can afford one of the 3d ones think i have seen some packages for under 100 which are quite reasonable, just the baby is due at an expensive time

I had the same thing with its legs being crossed she said it looked like a girls bum and she was focussing on the white lines..three i think she said so fingers crossed! I am a first time mum so im just in a tizz at the moment, hope your all feeling fab in your pregnancies and thanks again! xxx
