    I had an ultrasound today (baby is measuring 17weeks) and the tech thinks baby is a girl because she saw 3 white lines. I can clearly see 3 white lines on the ultrasound picture but I've never heard of the "3 white lines". I asked the tech if she's ever seen 3 white lines and guessed a girl and then have it be a boy after all...she said, "nope, I've never seen that before in my years." So we are excited! But we are cautious because my hubby side has 4 generations of NO GIRLs...only boys! lol...so we thought for sure we would have a boy..but this is a welcomed surprise. We have another ultrasound in a few weeks and we will definitely ask for confirmation again. But I was just wondering if anyone has had the "3 white lines" on a ultrasound and had a girl or boy?

    :)

    Blessings!

    Sorry, I haven't had that experience - think it's pretty rare :) At your stage I guess it pays to be cautious until you are at least 20 weeks, but I'd say you're more than likely on team pink! :pink: xx Congrats! I bet your hubby is excited!

    Yep my little girl's scan pic clearly showed 3 lines and she was a girly.
    It's the main indicator they look for in detceting sex in a girl. Congrats xx

    Don't want to put a spanner in the works but during my scan yesterday in the first few minutes we saw 3 white lines and the scanner said that is what we are looking for - it is a girl.

    Then she prodded LO about a bit so it started wriggling and his todger popped out from between his legs and he had it tucked away. And we are now having a boy!!

    Sorry!
