So I had a pretty decent appointment today. Got the results back from NT scan and trisomy 21 risk is about 1:20000, 18 is 1:45000 and 13 is 1:15000. Those aren't the exact numbers but about there. Got diagnosed with Subclinical hypothyroidism (woo ) so now I'm on meds for that. Borderline low vit d too so gotta take sone of that. I mentioned how Jellybean looked like a boy and I got to take another peek. Looks even more boyish than he did 5 days ago, definitely a prominent something there at the moment. OB said that it definitely looks like a penis and that while it can be tricky to tell still at this stage it was pretty darn prominent to say the least and he would say it was a boy. Actually when we got the shot between the legs he said "Oh yeah there's a penis" though I dunno if he meant to say that bit out loud lol. All in all a good appt and nothing that can't be set right.

Haha even to my untrained eye his junk just screams penis lol. My next appt isn't until a few hours after my ultrasound so no more peeking for me unless I go and get one at one of those 4d ultrasound places. Ultrasound and appt is December 18th so we will see if I can stick it out!

Here is my sons 15 weeks scan where we found out he was a boy =) I was 15 weeks exactly. So if you are seeing hints that baby is a boy right now..it probably is!

Yeah I figure with it being closer to 14 weeks and things downstairs look even more penis like than at 13 weeks then there's a pretty good chance. If the ultrasounds were closer to 12 weeks I would be a lot more apprehensive.

Haha here's the world's dodgiest, lamest drawing of what we saw on the ultrasound today.

And here is the shot from the 31st


So it was fairly similar but there was definitely more sticking out this time and thinner and more distinguishable from the rest of the body. Where I was thinking "hey, looks like a penis!" but wasn't quite sure 5 days ago, it was a lot easier to see this time.

Your 13 week shot looks preeettty similar to my sons 15 week shot...I'm guessing you have a baby boy in there =)

I made my pic bigger because the other was so small..but you can see that the ultrasound pics (yours and mine) are pretty much the same!

Yay! I think I saw a little something between the legs too at my 13 week...so I'm thinking boy as well! They say potty shots aren't accurate at this age but I think if you get the right angle and the doc/tech knows what to look for they can be pretty accurate at predicting boys I've looked at a lot of 13 week potty shots that were confirmed boy and they all look very similar to yours!

Sorry about your hypothyroidism :/ I take medication for it too, although that might change as I have an appt. this week to check the levels.

Yeah I've seen that too (the not accurate thing) but SURELY you would think that it would be getting less penis like instead of the opposite huh? I hope it's still a boy on the 18th of Dec, wiuld be a dream come true. Haha my snazzy drawing is pretty conv I ncing
I'm just glad the hypothyroidism can be managed well enough and that they are on it. The stuff you read about what it does to babies when unmanaged is a bit blegh. So long as Jellybean is and stays ok .

I think it's pretty safe to say it's a boy Esp. since the doc even seemed to think so...I doubt he would have said anything unless he was pretty sure.
