12 weeks/ultrasound pictures 
O portrait
Hi all! 

I am 12 weeks 3 days, and I had an NT ultrasound on Thursday. For anybody who's considering one, I highly recommend it (if your insurance is reasonable about it). I got to see my baby swim around and move, and it was SUCH a relief to hear that everything is going 100% well so far. All of my blood tests came back normal, and I have a 1 in 27,000 risk for Down's, so I am starting to believe I might actually end up with a healthy baby come June. I even told my parents, and they were SO excited. 


Any guesses on the sex? I have no idea what the hell is even going on past the head.

Congratulations! I'm going to guess girl :)

Congrats!!! Healthy babies are always a blessing! I don't see a peepee sticking up, but the legs could be in the way. Judging by the first pic, i'd guess girl. That could be just me being biased. I have a girl and another on the way :)

Thanks for posting these! I am 12w today and have my NT scan on Monday! So excited - although not for the blood draw. First time seeing the baby since it was a little blob at 6w.

At 12 weeks the genitals are barely formed, and even experts have a hard time predicting if a baby will be a boy or a girl at this point; there's really just a little flap between the legs that will form either boy or girl parts. By 18-20 weeks, they've developed a lot more and if baby cooperates and you can get the right angle, you'll be able to see what you're having.

This! It's too early to really tell. Some people will guess based on the 'angle of the dangle' (google for more info/pictures), but its still really just a guess. Plus, the dangle isn't visible in your picture either way, so there's really no way to make an educated guess.

Congrats on a healthy pregnancy, though!

I know, just having fun! :)

based on the angle of the nub, I'm guessing girl. But I'm not sure if any of the pics are really in the right place.
