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

But with a girl it can be tricky

How effective is getting up and moving around, when the baby is in one position, but you want them to move? What if your bump is small, does it make a difference?

I'm anxious about finding out the gender too and do NOT want to leave my scan Team Yellow!

I think it all depends on the babys position Ours was a little monkey and had it's legs crossed most of the time, so it was unclear if it was a boy or the cord in the way.

I tried star jumps, the lot, nothing would budge him though!

We went for a private gender scan a week later & the sonographer said to have something sugary 15-30 mins before the scan. It worked a treat baby was really lively & very obviously 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

My bub had it's legs closed tight and out straight so the sonographer could only give me an 80%ish guess at

Mine gave me 80% girl! 2 sonographers said this, but also said she was in an awkward position to tell, which makes me wonder!
