I had an ultrasound done at 17 weeks. The ultrasound tech said it was a girl almost as soon as I laid done on the table. How accurate are they about girl gender identifying? This is my first baby and we are hoping for a girl. The heart rate was 174 but my ultrasound pic just doesn't do it justice. Help!!

Pretty accurate.  You would have seen something in between the legs.

I'd say you're having a girl!
I was told at 15 weeks and 5 days that it was a girl,  got it confirmed at 20 weeks and 31 weeks.  They're accurate by then.
