Can I find out when do the MTM know your baby's gender?
Hahaha im not pregnant now , My dear son already gng 5mth . Mus wait becoz by that time you can see clearly of the baby gender .
i would say experienced gynae will scan out of goodwill for you the gender of your baby using the normal ultrasound scanning machine. Once the fetus is about 16weeks should be able to start to scan for gender. But as a guideline for most pregnancies, gynae fixed the detail scan at 20weeks.
i already knew mine was a boy at 16weeks coz my gynae kaypo ask me if i want to know he can DO IT. So i just say 'Orrh'. So i wasnt excited during the detailed scan at all......
During my routine ultrasound around 16wks my gynae told me should b ger while my 20wks detailed scan to cfm my baby is ger~ By rite if your baby cooperate n not shy then by 20wks you should knw the gender alrdy~
yes, i know the gender during the detailed scan... i was excited but my hubby was VERY excited (he slip out from work & ask me to wait for him when i told him the gender is baby Girl) during the detailed scan my baby maybe sleeping cant do the measurement so gotta wait... After knowing is girl, my hubby think of the name now & then...
i was so confused by my obs. At 13 weeks, she say it is a boy. At 16 weeks, she say it can be boy...but isn't sure. So we will find out at next appointment, ie at 20 weeks. Hope we get a definite answer by then as i have been shopping baby clothes...
hey preggie ... telling the baby's gender depends on a lot of factors, main ones being how cooperative your baby is & how experienced the gynae is. sometimes your baby can be shy (legs clamp shut) or positioned in such a way that things are subjective.
i got to know my baby gender @ around 16 wks. gynae then was very experienced, see one time immed said he's 99% sure it's a boy. i pumped my arm in the air becos i won the bet agst my dear husband (who wanted girl) - haha!
after that my baby was relatively "liberal" everytime scan legs sure faaaaar apart one. like announcing to the world HIS arrival!
i think the scan types play a part too. for e.g. 4D scans will def be a lot more accurate - you can even see baby's face. but i think damn ex .
i found out the gender of my baby boy during my detailed scan on the 20th week. hehehehe... when will you know the gender of yr baby really depends on how coorperative your baby is. for example my cousin and my friend, they found out their baby's gender only when giving birth.
They scan and check alot . especially baby heart beat , kidney , hands legs finger not so as baby always close it. spine bone , check baby face the eyes, nose, mouth the mouth there got unusual or not.
Thar's all i can remember for a 2D scan.
3D scan is to see your baby face early nothing else liaos.
