Ultrasound Baby Gender

For some women the first thing that they look forward to when they find out they are pregnant is their ultrasound gender determination appointment. Doctors will schedule an ultrasound appointment approximately around the 20th week of pregnancy. The main point of this ultrasound is to look for any abnormalities with the baby or the uterus that may cause problems with the pregnancy. Although, that is the main reason behind the test, finding out the gender of the baby is very close behind finding out if the baby is healthy.

Some couples when they find out that they are having a boy or girl after their ultrasound appointment will go right out and buy all blue or all pink clothing and accessories. They start planning the colors and scheme of the nursery, never really giving a thought to the accuracy of the ultrasound. So, just how much trust can you put into the accuracy of your ultrasound in determining the gender of your baby?

The accuracy of the ultrasound can depend on a few different factors. One of those factors is how experienced your ultrasound technician is. For a technician that has been doing pregnancy ultrasounds for many years, it will be a lot easier for them to determine the gender of the baby than if someone who has only been doing ultrasounds for a couple of months or a year. Also, seasoned ultrasound technicians may also know little tricks or techniques to get a better view of the baby's private parts for ultrasound gender determination.

There are also other factors that come into play in determining accuracy that relate directly to each individual woman's own case. The position that the baby is lying in plays a great deal of importance in determining gender. If the baby has their legs crossed the whole time, it may be impossible to even try to determine gender. There are certain positions that baby can be in that are more conducive to determining the sex.

Other things that determine the accuracy of the test is how much amniotic fluid is around the baby and the thickness of the abdominal wall. Basically, an ultrasound technician needs to be able to see as clearly as possible to have certainty on what the sex of the baby is.

If you happen to have an experienced technician, your baby with the legs wide open, plenty of amniotic fluid, and a think abdominal wall, then your ultrasound accuracy could be 99.9%. On the other hand, if you have a baby that will not cooperate, a beginner technician, low amniotic fluid, and a thick abdominal wall, you could have an accuracy of 0%. The normal ultrasound appointment that goes according to plan, usually has an accuracy of anywhere from 85%-95%. For some people those may be good odds, and for others it may not be.

There are certain things that an ultrasound technician looks for to determine gender. With females, they just don't look for the absence of male parts, but look for three lines that come up for the genitalia. Most technicians will take several different looks at the baby's genitalia before telling you the sex.

Although ultrasound gender determination can be wrong, more than 3/4 of the time, the determination is correct. Be sure that when you ago for your pregnancy ultrasound that you ask your technician about the factors that can influence the determination to make sure if you should really go out and buy that pink crib set.
