Hey all I had a little boy September 2010.. anyway... at his 12 week scan I was POSITIVE that I could see his penis/scrotum... They don't look at gender til 20weeks so wouldn't say, but I was sure at 12 (correctly) So yeah, that so totally is his manbits isn't it?....

I have to agree with the tech, you cant tell at that gestation. Now where you think it is his scrotum I think is his tailbone..I could be wrong and you could be totally right at it is his man bits. BUT I think its far to early to do a side shot for gender. toilet shot is far more accurate at that age. Congrats on your baby boy.

This site here gives excellent information for a 12 week scan

Hi there...Moderator took my reply, ugh..here is what i put. Take a look at this site. Ultrasound Sonogram Scans week by week first trimester month 1 2 3 months weeks 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 early scan - Baby2see .. it gives excellent information about the development. I honetly dont think you can tell gender at a side shot of a 12 week scan. What you think is the scrotum I think is the tailbone. But I could be wrong. Congrats on your little boy.

Actually, I KNOW you can tell at 12 weeks if the baby is in the right position and the tech is very skilled. We found out at 12+6 with my older boy. We have the potty shot (from underneath) and it is pretty obvious he is a boy. The tech told me things would be more "tucked" if it was a girl. She could not give me any 100% or anything like that (she said she was going with 80% to be "safe"), but the shot is nothing but boy and he showed us that every single sono afterwards. And still loves to show it off at age 2! The tech had been scanning for over 20 years and said she often can 'tell' even if the legs are crossed at 20 weeks. So I totally trusted her. She guessed boy for our second off of the 12 week sonogram, which we confirmed at 16 weeks. But we did not get a good potty shot with him.

That said, I don't think this shot is actually good for determining gender. With Liam, his potty shot was even tiny. The parts you think are his boy parts in that picture are probably a foot, a cord, a tailbone, or some other part. His genitals would not be that large in comparison to his body (check out how the foot is about the same size as the area you are talking about). Chances are something is blocking the actual genitals. On the 12 week one we had, Liam's were about the size of your 1-year-old's pinkie fingernail. But they did have form, which was what she went off of

Although...I could always be wrong. I am not at all a sono tech, nor do I play one on Tv
