Let me start by saying that my cousin had an u/s at 18 weeks and was told boy, then yesterday at her anatomy scan they told her it is a girl. There are 4 of us in our family who are pregnant and due in June and July. All of us were told boy early on. My sister in law (due in July) was told boy and now after our cousin's was incorrect, she is freaking out. I've been calm, certain that ours is a boy. Below is a picture of our early gender scan at 16 weeks, followed by today's pics from the anatomy scan. It definitely looks like boy, but what is the bottom picture of??





Another boy shot


What is this? I know it looks like a girl's part, but I don't even know if this is between the legs?? Anyone know what the CL means?



Any ideas?

You def. have a boy. I am not sure the bottom pic is even a gender shot. My perinatologist labeled all the body parts at our anatomy scan and printed for my OB, so maybe he put it with your prints by accident? I cannot think about what anatomy they would check that starts with a C though.

that is ci, it means cephalic Index. which just means round head

I think the lines you are seeing maybe his lips, like he is opening his mouth.. the top line is his spine then to the right is his butt. To the left is his head, you can see his lips, nose and eyes

I don't know what that bottom picture is either. I know I didn't see that when he was looking between the legs. He definitely looks like a boy. I was just shocked to see those 3 lines grouped with my boy shots. I'm glad you girls don't sound iffy about it!

Maybe they just accidentally gave you a picture that was a measurement of some sort? I know when I had mine yesterday she took all these pictures with abbreviations on them, but I only got like 5 pictures on the cd. So maybe it was just an accident? I have no idea what that means though!?

But I agree he's still a boy!

After my ultrasound was over the tech left and the doctor came in and did some re measurements including checking my cervical length - the last photo he took for my docs was a picture of my cervix with the words CL - I didnt get a copy of that photo but I know it went in the file for the doc. That is the first thing I thought of when I saw CL cause thats all mine said but it was two capital letters not Cl

CL means cervical length. They measure y all all the appointments. You are definitely having a boy.

I think Sami is right, it is CI.. I just looked at it and read CL.

We got all of the pictures on the CD including all the measurements so it's hard to tell what I'm looking at on most of them!

Sorry...lurking....

CI is what it says and it stands for "cord insertion." The three lines you see are his three vessels of the cord (which is normal and healthy). They take a picture of it to see where the cord attaches to the baby and where it attaches to the placenta so they can make sure all is healthy with the lifeline (i cant tell which pic this is of, but would guess its the attachment to baby). But it always presents as three lines unless it's a two-vessel cord, which is also fairly normal and only a minor complication.

I hope that reassures you That baby couldn't be more BOY if he tried

Yeah that's definitely a boy. My gender shots aren't nearly as obvious as yours are. My tech was like "It's small, but it's definitely a penis." Thanks

I wouldn't worry about it not being a boy. If you really want to know just save the pic for your next appointment & ask the dr. to tell you what the last picture is. They are rarely wrong with boys and your pictures seem pretty obvious!

Exactly! I have tons of video with this because it is at the cord insertion that this baby has problems. Sometimes it is easier to see the attachment point inbetween the legs than it is from the side.

That is definitely a boy too. I have a sil that was told she was having a girl and was surprised when "HE" was born. It just depends on the baby's position and if they can get a good view. They wouldn't even guess with this one because they couldn't distinguish boy or girl parts for sure, we had to wait for the amnio results to know.
