I'm due Feb 11th and was told i am having a little baby girl. This far along i should be able to see little boy parts right? My tech said she is 95% sure but my b/f's mother had to burst my bubble and say i could still have a boy and not to bother on getting my hopes up. She makes me soo frustrated i just want to cry!!! Someone please tell me those three white lines are little girl!!!

I was told FOR SURE 99% money shot it was a girl at 13 weeks. The ultrasound lady didn't hesitate!!! Had a full blown Girl baby shower out of state brought back suitcases full of pink dresses and girl stuff. 21 week ultrasound revealed I'm having a boy. Yep... A boy. My baby room was painted lavender and I have purple bows everywhere. I never had a preference but I was mentally ready for a girl, she was a "she".
I can clearly see a penis in the 21week ultrasound but the "3 lines" I'm pretty sure are how they identify the genitals of a boy at 13 - 16 weeks... if it's 2 lines it's a girl. But all fetuses are girls until the "3rd line" appears meaning the penis pops out, even then it can be mistaken as a girl part. Yet at 21 weeks my baby has a clear set of testes and a penis. It's kind of a psychological shock because all this time I've been bonding with a girl and decorating the room for a different baby, a girl baby. So weird... and I still am kind of pissed, not at the outcome but at the certainty of the nurse. I'm not surprised if next time I go in they say Oh oops it WAS a girl, nothing surprises me anymore.

The 3 white lines mean its the libia fold. I'm 18 weeks & 4 days had my ultrasound 2 days ago she said she saw the lines. Then she started to second guess herself & idk why because on three pics show the 3 lines very visabally. And with a boy its very prominent atleast it was for my 3 boys.

I had my scan at 24weeks and I was told by the tech there was no visible signs of a boy. The tech did show me and my boyfriend the three white lines between the legs. But now that I am a week away I question whether or not I am having a girl.

Samantha - Don't focus on what the gender of your baby may or may not be. I saw the lines in my U/S at 20 weeks, and they told me I was having a 9.5 lb girl. I had an 11lb 6 oz boy...
You never really know, and U/S's are not 100% accurate. Just focus on loving the baby and taking care of yourself and you'll be happy no matter what the gender is.
You're frustrated because you've got a ton of hormones running through your body. Don't stress over it, because stress isn't good for your baby or you. Have a good cry and then let it go.

just remind yourself that when your boyfriend's mom was having kids, technology was not as advanced as it is today. it used to be very common to be having a "girl" for the entire pregnancy, and then at birth to find out they were wrong. if you saw three white lines after 16 weeks, it is a girl 100 percent.

The genitals should be fully developed right now, you should not see little boy parts you should see girl parts if its a girl.

I had my fetal survey at 19 weeks and my little man is obviously a boy. Girls look very much like a hamburger ( lol, Charlotte) in that there are three white lines. I agree here, ignore the comments. From the moment I found out I was expecting I referred to my little man as a him, his stuff and he. People told me not to because I could be having a girl and they were WRONG =D !

its very rare to be told your having a girl and it turn out to be a boy !!, girls bits look like a little hamburger (three white lines)on the ultrasound and boys parts have two visable balls on the scan so it must be a girl look foward to it and ignore others negative comments

I have two girls and both had 3 white lines...my boys were always very visibly boys at this point..you could see the peepee just sticking out there! I believe you are def having a girl. Leave it to a MIL or future MIL to say something to burst bubbles..mine does all the time. LOL

Hi there, like Rachel said, the 3 white lines are the labia and vulva. It is actually the inner and outer lips of the vagina. Thus is not just the abcense of the penis, but actually the presence of a girls anatomy that determines the sex.



Hamburger, 3 lines, all expresions the doctors use to describe the appearance of a girl on a scan. Congrats on your baby girl!!

Hi Samantha... I will just say that as long as when the tech took the pic and her legs were spread open and you could see those three lines that YES it is a girl... My daughter to be dad really wanted a boy and when the doc said it was a girl he alwasy keeps saying that there is still those 10% to be a boy, but i know for a fact its a girl because when the ultrasound pic was taken her legs were spread open so nothing could be misleading. Good Luck... My daughter due date is Feb 6 so right lose to your :D

Three lines are definitely a little girl, boys at you're stage are very noticeable besides 95% are really good odds. Don't let her get you down, some people always have something to say. Just what till you have the baby, you (like me) will probably get hit with so much unwanted advice. Don't let nothing bother you and listen to your heart.

Good luck with the other half of ur pregnancy.

I am pregnant with my 2nd, first was a boy. I took the Intelligender test at 10 weeks which said it was a girl. I had an early ultrasound at 15 weeks for fun just because I couldn't wait. The tech said the 3 lines is definitely a girl. I just had my OB ultrasound at 18 weeks and the 3 lines are still there and it's definitely a girl! So don't worry, you're definitely having a girl! Congrats!

i dont quite understand the whole three white lines? where do you look for them at...my ultrasound is next week...i have never heard of that before

[deleted account]

Quoting Tessa:

I going crazy hoping i was having a girl when i went to the ultra sound to find out that when she told me i was having a girl i made her check like 5 more times before it was over. lol. she finally explained to me that the 3 white lines on her ultrasound means that there is a pelvic bone there and boys dont have a pelvic bone. She said she has been doing her job 30 years now and has never been wrong. So i'm pretty sure that means those 3 white lines are definatly a girl.


Have a look at the website:



http://www.in-gender.com/cs/forums/95.as...



 



These are qualified ultrasound technicians and do this for a living.



On this site you'll get plenty of "incorrect" genders - the biggest one tends to be boys that have "3 lines" - mum gets told girl only for a little boy to come out....



It's a fact that if a sonographer who is less experienced takes the "toilet shot" from too far back, 3 white lines on boys with no prominent boy bits are seen. It is absolutely NOT the pelvic bone you are looking for - it is the labia.



 



I'm not saying that your sonographer is incorrect or the opening post doesn't have her little girl - all I am saying is it is absolutley possible for boys to ultrasound as 3 white lines as well...

Three white lines can also be a boy if the shot is taken too far back....



At 18 weeks we saw 4 white lines and made it a 100% girl....



Do you have a pic you could upload? I'd be happy to look at it for you?



The absence of a penis shouldn't be an automatic girl - it could be that the penis isn't visible from that particular shot.....



I'll upload my gender shot for you in a sec - check the photos at the bottom of the page

My first daughter had the three white lines. The daughter I'm carrying now has three white lines as well.

It is true that ultrasounds aren't always right, but it's more common for a "boy" to turn out to be a girl than a "girl" turn out to be a boy! Don't worry! You had the ultrasound late enough for it to be fairly accurate. :)

3 lines is a girl... If you had your sono after 19wks it's a pretty sure thing that you are having a girl. Don't let your b/fs mother get you down.
