Determining fetal genders

With my gender ultrasounds, I felt like it was pretty obvious that they babies were the genders they were (well, I don't know 100% with the one that's baking now, but I saw what the tech saw!). Do you feel like it's obvious? Would you doubt the correctness of the 15-week determination?

DD at 17 wks, 5 days - there are the "3 lines" From Baby genders Baking baby boy at 15 wks, 1 day - see the "turtle" From Baby genders Baking baby boy From Baby genders Baking baby boy in 3d - I see a protrusion From Baby genders

I have 3 girls and never saw anything like the turtle in your u/s pictures for this baby! I'd say boy. :)

I've never seen that site before, but it was super interesting - thanks! Amazing how alike everything is at 11 weeks...

i know a lot of the 3D placed advertise being able to tell as early as 15 weeks so i would imagine that it's developed enough to give people a pretty sure answer at that stage or they wouldnt advertise it. here's a link of what the genitals look like at the different stages, to give a better idea.

Yep, I know that early on both genders have the pole, so just seeing something wouldn't be a way to determine. I did ask her at what point that's no longer an issue, but there was other stuff going on and I didn't get an answer. From what I've read, it's around 14 weeks, right?

And yes, without the fat built up, they do look a bit freaky in 3d!

Since you are at 15 wks, I would say yes- that is very likely a male! If yuo were 12ish weeks- I wouldnt run with it because both male and female babies have a dangle at 12ish weeks and the only way to tell is the angle of it, which can be tricky. But, you are 15 weeks... and at 15 weeks it is developed enough that I would feel confident in saying boy .

I'd say boy!

And I must say, and not to be offensive, but a 3D at this early stage totally creeps me out! :)

Looks all boy to me! I had my determination done with DS2 at 15 weeks. I knew as soon as they pulled up the U/S that it was a boy because I was used to having seen it with DS1 during that pregnancy. Definitely looks certifiably male :) I can't tell on your DD's! I guess I have no clue what girly anything looks like.
