How we determine baby’s gender with Ultrasound
For over 3 decades now, ultrasound has allowed us a peek into the womb to check on the viability of pregnancy and to tell us if we are expecting a boy or a girl. At GoldenView Ultrasound, clients often ask if gender determination is more accurate in 3d or HD than with the traditional 2d Ultrasound. To a trained sonographer, it is generally easier to get a gender determination of a fetus in 2d rather than with 3d or HD ultrasound because the element of body tissue is out of the way with 2d ultrasound. Clients, however, may feel more confident with a gender image taken with a 3d ultrasound because it makes sense to them with a 3 dimensional view. Since the sonographers at GoldenView Ultrasound are trained to read the 2d scan, they will check the gender in 2d first and may follow up with a 3D image provided that the baby is in an optimal position.
A female gender image in 2D may be described as 3 echogenic lines that define the labia, while a male gender shot resembles a “turtle” with the roundness of the testes being visible as well as the tip of the penis. Attached are great 2D gender shots of both a boy and a girl in the womb.
A view of the gender may be hindered by the position of the baby, the position of the legs and often the position of the umbilical cord. In some cases, the umbilical cord hangs right between the legs making it impossible to see the gender of the baby. Repositioning of the mother may get the baby to move in order to free up the view. Some babies also sit cross legged allowing an accurate view difficult to obtain. The majority of expectant families will be able to find out if it is a boy or a girl at the first visit provided that they are at least 14 weeks. Some may have to come back for a repeat visit if the positioning of the baby is poor. GoldenView Ultrasound offers a free redo policy in the event we are unable to determine the gender of your baby.
