I'm not sure how reliable this is but I came upon it on Pinterest.
Gender according to placental placement. Was it right for you ladies??

I'm not sure I'm understanding it entirely - my right/left or right/left on the U/S picture? And only at the first U/S or the placement at the mid-pregnancy U/S accurate too?

Where your placenta is in you. So if its on the right in the ultrasound (if its abdominal)than its on the left inside you.
Usually by mid pregnant the placenta has moved towards the middle (I think)

The placenta isn't developed at 6 weeks from what I understand. The yolk sac turns into the placenta from what i understood from my doctor so the yolk sac placement would count to I guess. I think a 10 wk ultrasound - 13 week would be the easiest to tell.

From what I understand in this link on this ultrasound pic the small "blob" is the yolk sac which develops into the placenta. Since it is on the right in the picture it's on the left side of my body.


Mine was right for both babies but I'm sure it was just a coincidence.
Another fun fact is that my placenta is anterior this time and was posterior with my boy. I know 2 other women personally that have anterior placentas and are expecting a girl and one who has an anterior placenta who is expecting a boy.

I have an anterior placenta and I am having a girl!

I didn't go until 10 weeks so the baby was more than a yolk sac by the time I saw it. My placenta is slightly to my right side, though, and this baby is a girl so the theory doesn't work for me assuming that's roughly the same place I implanted.

I do have an anterior placenta so there's that although I can think of at least one mama in our DDC who's expecting a definite boy and has an anterior placenta too. Interesting ideas, though!

It actually seems right for me, assuming the us picture is opposite real life. The yolk sack was to the left of the baby in the pic, which would be MY right, so boy, and I am having a boy.

Both kids I have had posterior placentas. Everyone I know, having kids of both sexes, all had posterior placentas.

Yolk sac has nothing to do with the Ramzi method.

The original study is here if you're interested in reading it:
http://hcp.obgyn.net/content/article/1760982/1878451

Two ultrasounds were done with each patient. The first was in the 6th week of pregnancy. During that ultrasound, they used color ultrasound technology to highlight chorionic blood flow in the uterus and made a gender estimate based on that. They then went back later in pregnancy and confirmed gender/placenta location via ultrasound.

In over 97% of cases, the theory was correct. Which is interesting. However, it was a very technical study so I wouldn't trust my own interpretation, or anyone else's for that matter unless that person was a doctor well acquainted with the theory itself.

I'm confused at how they see placental placement at 6 weeks, the placenta is still the yolk sac, that's why I said something about the yolk sac earlier.

To me this was just a fun theory, nothing to base your gender on 100%

What? LOL.

The placenta and the yolk sac are two completely different things. They both develop separately and are not linked in any way. The placenta begins to form at implantation, but the baby receives nutrition from the yolk sac in the beginning.

Via ultrasound, Dr. Ramzi could detect where the placenta was forming at 6 weeks using color technology to map out the chorionic blood flow... like I said. If you look at Figure 21 in the study I linked for you, the yolk sac is clearly labeled near the fetus and you can see the chorionic blood flow to the left.

It's actually more than a "fun theory." Like I said, it has an astounding accuracy rate if the results are read correctly. But basing gender on yolk sac position is totally pointless since there's no scientific basis behind that whatsoever

That's what I'm confused about. I swear the nurse doing my sono told me that the yolk sac turns into the placenta. Maybe she said it is like the placenta because it does provide nutrients to the fetus, correct?

yes the accuracy of the Ramzi theory is over 97%. Many/most people can't figure out how to do it correctly, there are several variables you have to know and would likely need to ask the tech to get specifically before you can be sure, but i have a friend who is REALLY good at this.

The blog article that I posted didn't go into details I'm not sure it even mentioned the name of the method. It's nice to know the background

I'd bet that's what she meant
