gender???

I had my ultrasound at 17 weeks and its a frontal view.  The ultrasound tech said she was 90 percent sure it was a boy but im not sure how she could tell.  Please leave your comments.  The baby is laying with its head on the right and you can see toes on the left.  Remember its a front view.

The pic she gave was a frontal view, but that doesn't mean that is the only view she saw.  I assume she didn't give you a pic of the baby's private parts because she isn't 100% sure.  Most sonographers are the same,  if we are not completely sure then we don't give a pic of that area. because if you find out next month that ur baby is really a girl then you may mad over the pic and the assurance that the pic provided for the baby's gender.

When i had my ultrasound the lady moved the machine around so you could see if it was or not. Most of them do a pic of the private area... If you go to my page you can see the pic that the lady took.

I cant tell. I had my scan also at 17weeks and I am having a girl but I seen that on my own the tech just confirmed it. She was laying on her side and I seen between her legs like it was as clear as day. She could have moved it around more because thats what my tech did and my little girl was being very active. When do you go for another ultrasound and when are you due.
