my dr said at 12 weeks he thought he saw boy parts - at 19 weeks I was told it's a girl.  I am now 33w6d and it better be a girl!!!

My friend was told at 12 weeks boy too and they were right...It really depends.  Obviously they better check again at 19/20 weeks....even then you never know.

Thanks for the post.  I was wandering Jenny if you had the ultrasound pics at 12 weeks.

Yes, I have pics, but I never knew what he thought he saw - really looks like the cord to me and the place I went for the 19week scan said that the shot the doctor thought was boy parts wasn't even between the legs!  I don't have the pics here at work, will look for them at home and try to post

I was told at 10 weeks I was having a boy, but Im not banking on it just yet...I dont know what she saw to think that...I get another u/s at 13 weeks and maybe we can see something then for sure

I know that parts don't develop until 11 weeks (or so I have read). I know a girl on here who was told boy at 11 weeks and just found out at 18 weeks that she is having a girl. I wouldn't go buy any blue yet. Give it a couple of weeks until you get a really good picture! :)

Thanks for the posting.  I agree.  I would be surprised if the tech is wrong.  I have 2 boys now and a girl would have been nice.  I 'm excited and happy either way.

Between 10w-13w6d  the ultrasound techs can tell gender by how the genitals are lining up with the spine (parallel = boy, perpendicular = girl...if I remember correctly)  There are no organs outside the body at this point.  There have been scientific studies done though and they are about 95% accurate at gender prediction at this age range using this technique.  We participated in one study and they were right.  My guess is that you need have a tech who is familiar with these studies.

I had an u/s at 12 weeks and saw things my 2 girls didn't have!! I asked the tech who I had for the girls and she said she'd only been wrong once at 12 weeks!!It would be nice to have a boy in the mix.However I will wait until my next u/s to be very sure!!

Hi, I had a scan at 12wks and 4 dys. the tech said it was a lil boy. She also said that by 12 weeks the organs are developed. Only the scrotum of the boy is visable!!! I am still so excited to get my 18 week scan, just to confirm!!!
