I went to an outside ultrasound place do determine the gender of my second baby. I went with my first baby at 15 weeks and this time around 14 weeks. With my daughter they told me they were 98% sure it was a boy. So i went out and bought some boy stuff but not too much thank goodness. Come to find out at 22 Weeks He was a she. With this pregnancy I thought I would try again to see if maybe they could get a clear shot. I went to a different place. The ultrasound tech was frustrated because the baby wouldn't uncross it's legs but when the baby did it was only for a few seconds. She took a guess it seemed like and said it was a girl. Then she took a picture and was trying to convince herself that she was right. This time she said it was 100% a girl. I left with uncertainty because I dont feel like she took her time.
I did some extensive research and they said on numerous accounts that the 3 lines theory is sometimes wrong because both boy and girl have 3 lines...girls looks like III and boys look like iIi without the dots lol.
I have also looked at several ultrasound pictures and compared and that seems to be accurate. I also know that 14 and 15 weeks is really soon to tell and that they can only be sure later in the pregnancy.
Can anyone relate?
