17 weeks, gender accuracy?


Had our anatomy scan yesterday @ 17 weeks.
Baby was measuring exactly 17 weeks.

The tech we had was really experienced, hes been doing this work for over 35 years he said.
Within a few mins of scanning he showed us in between the baby's legs and there was nothing there, nothing sticking out.
He took a good look and said it's a girl.. throughout the ultrasound he said "she" and in the end I asked him "So.. we can go ahead and buy pink now?" and he said "yeah go ahead".

We didnt get no potty shot, we do have a dvd but he only started recording towards the end of the scan.

I dont want to spend $75 for a 15mins gender scan
But i might have to?

My husband believes it 100%!

What do you think?

I'd say if he's that experienced and seemed confident then I'd believe him and go shopping!

I hope mine is as definate in a few weeks.. I can't wait to find out

cool, thats what my husband thinks too.
He was very experienced and had a really new machine too.

What got me thinking was he didnt show us any lines.
if I wasnt on this forum i'd have just believed him instantly, but now i worry cause he didnt show us lines.

He showed us in between the legs and there was nothing there.
Although he seemed to know ALOT, cause he showed us the whole anatomy and the heart and this and that, basically everything.

He seemed to be really sure baby's a girl.

I'm in the same situation. We had a scan at 17+4 and were told girl 70% but were showed no lines. Tomorrow is our 20 week scan sk we'll see what they say then. Our sonographer said she was pretty definite and we could see nothing between the legs but i can't help but wonder! However, my friend was told girl at 20 weeks, showed 3 white lines and at about 30 weeks found out it was in fact a boy!! Xxx

Yea, I dunno, maybe he saw the lines, which could be cause I couldnt see the screen very well and my husband didnt know what to look at LOL.

I guess with stuff like this you'll NEVER know for sure until the baby is actually born!

I think I'll trust the ultrasound tech!
My midwife will do a quick scan next time, in 3 weeks..

Im pretty sure it's a girl.. but still... but as i said before i dont think ill be ever 100% guaranteed if its a girl or not untill baby is born!
LOL.

Think we'll buy pink stuff and also alot of gender neutral stuff.

I agree. You can't ever know 100%. I'm fairly confident we're having a girl but it's the irrational bit in my head says otherwise. We'll do the same- some pink but lits of neutral. Xxx

I found out at 18 weeks and she was very confident it was a girl. I have a 4D ultrasound at 32 weeks so hopefully we will see if she was right!
