Chances of finding out baby's gender at 20 week scan?
Hi everyone! I'm just wondering, how likely is it that you'd be able to find out baby's gender at the 20 week scan - due to things like baby's legs being crossed. Obviously i know what they look for and such, but in recent weeks, i've heard a few friends tell me stories about their babe's legs being crossed and then being unable to find out.
I'm wondering if its more likely that i'd be able to see than not Surely more women come away from their scans knowing the gender than don't?
Hope this makes sense, its something thats been playing on my mind - i'm not getting my hopes up for finding out my baby's gender now because i'm just thinking that baby's legs will be crossed and make it impossible
We managed to find out with 95% certainty from our sonographer and apparently he was in a very awkward position and she had to look from a few different angles to see him. It meant I got pokes a bit as she tried to get the angle but I didn't mind. Think as long as they have time to they will try their best for you.
they have ways of manuerving around, mine actually looked into my baby's jaw to check for cleft palete. The assistant gave us a 90% boy, and when the Dr. came in the cord was in the way of his penis but I just got up and wiggled around, and it was for sure a boy
i think its all down to luck babe,if baby has legs spread and is stretched out then no problem.we were desperate to find out the sex at 20wks and baby was moving all over the place but not once would those little leggys uncross to give us a peek lol xx
