Anyone told girl because there was nothing seen between legs at 16 weeks but it turned out to be a boy? My Dr did a quick look yesterday but we didn't see any lines and baby wasn't in the best position so he just said possibly 70-80% girl....... I don't know?? I have to wait 4 more weeks for my 20 wk ultrasound but I was wondering if anyones lil man had his junk "hiding"............
My step-son was flashing his. Nothing bashful about my little man. Sorry but sometimes they just don't get a good image. There have also been cases (few but some) where one twin hid behind the other through most of the pregnancy and it wasn't until later that they spotted the second baby. So things happen. But if your technician said it's probably a girl, then it probably is. If you are hoping for a boy there is still a shot. Good luck!
The exact same thing happend to me today. My husband and I are expecting twins and went for regular ultrasound this morning. I asked the tech if he could tell, he said that he's not 100% certain because the babies were both facing down and not in the greatest position to see whats between their legs, however he said- from what he sees they might be girls!
Now we have to wait four more weeks to see if he is right when they do my 19 week twin anatomy scan.
At my 19 week scan the sonographer couldn't get a clear view but told me she thought it was a girl. I went back at 21 weeks and the lines were there so we were told girl again. At my 4d scan last week I asked if she could check and there were definately no boy parts lol !
A friend was telling me the other day that her cousin was told girl at her 20 week scan. She now has a 1 year old son So I think they get it wrong more often than I actually thought x
I think it probably means something if the doctor went ahead and said probably a girl. Contrast with my experience today (17+6): we were told probably boy at 13 weeks, and today I had an u/s to check on something else so doctor just took a quick peek, and very quickly told me that he wouldn't be able to say because the baby wasn't in the right position. So I think if your doctor actually said probably girl then he probably thinks the positioning/image was good enough that he would have seen boy parts if it was a boy. I would take the 70-80% certainty at face value though, i.e. it doesn't mean it's definitely a girl.
