I posted a pic in my profile of our nt scan at 13 weeks. Of course no one would tell us for sure boy or girl but my Dr did say if that's a girl she'd be concerned lol. Ultrasound tech her daughter didn't look anything like that at 13 weeks hinting that it was a boy. I was just wondering if any one had any opinions?
I found out the sex of my baby at 15 weeks which I thought was too early but he said he's 98% sure that I was going to have another boy. The heartbeat has been in the 130s.....I still think the jury is still out on that just wondering if he does another ultrasound and it shows up differently...I would maybe wait until you get another ultrasound to really know for sure
I've had two friends docs say boy very early and they ended up girls lol. My doc said girl at 18 weeks and I had a boy! I would wait for the 20 week ultra sound just to be safe. All of our doctors were very experienced doctors.
Keeping an eye on the baby's heartbeat could tell you the gender almost 99%. A high heartbeat could mean it is a girl and low could mean it is a boy. 130-150 is for sure a boy's one and 150-165 for a girl. This was my experience with my boy when his heartbeat was always 140-150. Trying to figure out gender from the ultrasound would be hard at this point.
The heartbeat will not tell you for sure if it's a boy or a girl. I'm almost 26 weeks and have had heartbeats ranging from 130-160, mostly in the 150-160 range, and mine is a boy. The heartbeat goes up and down depending on how active the baby is.
The sex organs dont develop properly until 16 weeks so anything before this isnt ver accurate. Sometimes the gender can be "guessed" and is correct later on but i wouldnt start buying blue just yet lol!
