3 white dots boy or girl

Hi,
I would really like to have your opinion on whether you think this is a boy or girl? This is my 16 week scan.

(http://www.freeimagehost.eu/image/37aefd1624490). Doctor said it's early so she wouldn't like to confirm yet but she's quite sure that's it's a boy (3 dots in a triangle or 3 leaf clover form). I am however a bit confused as I've read almost everywhere that this might indicate a girl ?

I would really appreciate your thinking in this matter, as I'm allready trying to bond and it will help knowing if I'm talking to a Zoë or Mikhail... ;-)

Honestly maybe it is just me but I can't see ANYTHING in that picture other than the head and body. It really looks like a side shot to me... do you have any of its bum? :)

i agree...but you are right someone p-osted something similar last week or so and apparently the 3 white dots turn into 3 white lines and it does mean girl...do you get anyther us when you are farther along??

Thanks for replying! I know the scan is a bit grainy - scanners on the brink ;-)

I circled the bits for you in the image so hopefully you can see...

Yes, I'm due for another us on the 20th...that seems so far away though, and there's absolutely no guarantee that the LO is going to let me take a peek then, my son kept me waiting untill almost right at the end (LOL).

well maybe its your babys position but it doesnt really looklike a boy to me...ive heard many have found out for boy at 16 WEEKs i found at 18 weeks we were havin a boy...

http://pregnancy.about.com/cs/ultrasounds/l/bluspic2aaz.htm.. thats a girl at 16 weeks looks a lil familiar...
http://pregnancy.about.com/cs/ultrasounds/l/bluspic2aaaaaae.htm this is a clear bpy at 17 weeks it looks clear versus the 16 week one this site has but looks exactly like that at 16 weeks so good luck

I'm obviously (;D) a bit confused, my boy's bits (when at last I got to see them) looked nothing like this, so I am very curious why the doctor said a boy... maybe it was to early for her to tell? Looks like I'll just have to curb my compulsion to start buying, keep talking the the "LO" (no names ;D) and keep my fingers crossed to see something during the next us. Thanks bunches for the extra pics and info. I'm slurping up anything I can get at the moment! When's your due date?

your scan is rough. but it looks more like girl, but no bets here.  Three white dots is ....well not an accurate way of telling anything other that the scanner has light leeks and needs to be cleaned or repaired. (sorry)   Did your Dr. mention a 3-D scan ?  or a test of the fluid around the baby? They usually wont do this unless there is a medical reason..high risk for medical problem..goos luck I am sure you will be happy which ever it is.

Hi girls,

Thanks for the input, The three white dots were shown more than once in the scan right between the legs, so I don't think that there's something wrong with the scanner. I will get a 3-d scan, only at 34 weeks and that still feels like ages to go! I just hope he/she will give us a peek the next us, it should be a bit more developed down there anyways ;D. Doesn't really matter to me any which way, just VERY curious to know and like most I'm very impatient this time around!

I was told at 13 weeks, my nuchal testing that 3 dots means a girl.  They said they were 80% sure.  Well, I had a girl.  I did have an amnio later on for other reasons that re-confirmed that but I to everyone I was having a girl after that first result.  Cngrats either way!!

My u/s at around 15 weeks looked very similar to what you have right now and I was told it's a boy. At around 23 weeks I went in for another u/s and you could clearly see his boy parts!!! Good luck.

Well  I have 2 daughters and each time there were 3 white dots down there on the pic.  I was told this is their female reproductive organs you are seeing.
my friends pic of her son didn't have 3 dots.

would you mind posting your scan if you can... I would love to compare!

Were the dots on your girls' scans anything like mine? I don't see how the two bottom dots can be the "nuts" if they haven't descended yet?

you know i looked at your pic, and it's not exactly what mine looked like.  which my daughters were good, they gave us a good view when the ultrasound was getting done.  But the 3 dots they had were very visibal.  they looked like someone made 3 dots with white out.  well here this is what our three dots looked like they were in an upside down triangle.  
If I were a betting person I don't think you are having a little girl, but 4 months is still a bit early.
Hopefully he or she will give a better angle next ultrasound you have.
Lets see if you have a little boy when you go back to get another ultrasound done.
