Baby gender ultrasound! DELETED ACCOUNT ! Due September 25 (girl); Vero Beach, Florida 131 posts
26th Apr '11

Tomorrow I finally go in for my ultrasound to find out the sex of my baby. I am so excited I can't sleep. Just a quick question. I am 18 weeks and I was just wondering if anyone went in to get the confirmation on what their baby's gender was but ended up not being able to find out for some reason? I just want to know how likely it is that I won't be able to find out like if the baby's legs are crossed or something. I am sure I will find out tomorrow I am just so excited I don't want to be disappointed, lol. This is my first baby! :D

drink a mountain dew or soda about an hour before the ultrasound. don't overdo it or anything but the caffeine in it will make baby active. also, keep your bladder full, don't pee, it gives baby less room to move around..or something like that. lol.




good luck :D

Yeah my doctor told be to drink 32oz of water 30 mins before the ultrasound. I have a mountain dew in the fridge I can take a few sips out of that and then drink the water. I just hope I don't pee my pants, lol. Thank you.

one of the main reasons they wont see gender is if the baby has their legs crossed.
so yeah, drinking will make them move around :D luckily for me when we went in with my son he had his legs spread open in a V position. but this time with her, her legs were almost blocking every time we peaked.
luckily a 4d confirmed her gender at my specialist's office :)

That was lucky! I waited 2 weeks for this day and then I find out that my insurance didn't cover the place I was going to so they canceled my appt so all morning I was on the phone with my insurance company trying to find a new place. Found out if I just go to the hospital and get it done my insurance will pay the entire cost so luckily I still get to find out tomorrow I just hope my baby complies, lol.

She was being difficult 'cause she was in an odd position and she has really long legs so she was cramped and on my bladder low on my bladder but the tech. kept at it and finally we got the goods lol. I was so scared for that too but everything was great. Also I after seeing my baby I didnt even care if I knew if she was a girl or a boy cus just seeing my baby was actually enough. I am reeally happy that we did find out though. I hope you the best.

Did they tell you how long she was and all that? I am so desperate to know how much he/she has grown...when i lay down, I can see where he/she is sitting in my tummy cuz it bulges funny lol

To be honest for 18 weeks my baby is super long and it was hard to measure her cus she was so squished in there and she wouldn't stay still for nothing. My next ultrasound whenever they decide to do they will try to measure her again. However she has a strong heart beat, extremely active, really long. but really healthy.

My doctor just called and told me I have to go back for another ultrasound I thought something was wrong but turns out they just didn't finish the ultrasound yesterday. They took Alysia's measurements but they didn't do her anatomy. I'm waiting for them to call me back with the appt. I am happy though 'cause I get to see her again :)
