The scan lady was "pretty sure" it was a girl, my little one was wriggling around quite a lot, as I drank some coke and ate some sherbet before I went in as I wanted her to be active and not have her legs crossed etc haha! I'm hoping she was right now as I've bought quite a few girly things...But I've made sure I've kept all the receipts anyway just in case haha!

Got a growth scan at 30 weeks so I'm hoping for a definite by then

when i was expecting LAKEISHA I had only one scan at 21wks
and she had her legs crossed so had to stay team yellow..
there was no such thing as 3d/4d/Gender scans here then
-maybe there was but nobody knew of them really-
They've only become popular last 2-3YRS here..

with Cayden at 20wk scan, monkey had his Legs wide open most of it lol.. soo no mistaking that

Best of luck with your scan, hope u get to find out xx

I am glad we did because at our 20 week scan he had his legs crossed!

I only found out the other day how different everything is in England than in America. Over here, if it's with the NHS and baby's in the wrong position, they wont try and move baby to find out.

I thought the chances of them not telling you was quite low, but I've known 6 girls who have had to have private scans because they wouldn't tell them. I didn't find out either!

Our NHS sonographer was brilliant and tried hard to get the baby to move, even sent me off to walk around and have a pee and see if that helped - but although baby was wide awake and active, he/she had gathered up the cord between his/her legs and was keeping it there whatever we did, even when he/she did move around! So there was no possibliity of seeing anything at all. I did get the impression from the sonographer that this was quite unusual though...

We were disappointed at first but too happy with the healthy scan to be like that for long, and now really enjoying being team yellow (which had been our original plan anyway...we are a bit indecisive about tempting things like this...!) You can always go for a private gender scan if you want and can afford it, if baby doesn't play ball - we decided to save the money but I've heard you can get them for about 80 or 90 if you shop around...I get the impression most people don't have a problem at their NHS scan though - we just have a really awkward baby!!
