Butterbeans are you familiar with the ramzi method for early gender prediction? If so, have you found it as accurate as the studies say?

Butterbeans this is an amazing thread! So glad I hve just seen this, thank you!!

My question is that I have had my 12 week scan and have my anomaly scan booked for 18 weeks. I went to the Dominican Tepublic when I was 9-11 weeks pregnant, and Zika has been confirmed there. I was bitten tho only 3 times. How accurate is it when they measure the head size at the 18 week scan to check for microcephaly? I know there's a lot of unknowns about Zika but I woukd really appreciate a rough idea!xx

Yes. I am familiar with it. Left sided implantations tend ro correspond to female, and right sided to male.
It worked for me- my left sided implantation resulted in a female fetus.
The scientific reasons for the correlations are hard to concieve of, but the numbers and anecdotal evidence are hard to deny.

Microcephaly can absolutely be diagnosed at the 18 week scan.
I would put your mind at ease. I have a feeling that there is only a correlation between zika and microcephaly, no causation. 331 pregnant women were diagnosed with Zika in Columbia and there wasn't one reported microcephaly case. Same is true for Asia. I believe there is a unique factor in Brazil that causes the rash of malformations. I can't help but notice how it's dropped out of the news.

I'm sure your baby is just fine! Relax and exjoy your pregnancy ;)

Just as an aside, This is also the wrong way to measure a femur. It must be interrogated while it is horizontal- measuring a vertical femur will foreshorten it, making it measure smaller than it actually is and affect measurements.

@Butterbeans, would you apply the Ramzi theory on my 6 week usg ? I have the pic but am not too sure how to interpret it.

Hi Butterbeans!

I hope all is well with you and your baby girl! I am having trouble with this ramzi method thing. In one of my U/S pictures what I assume is the placenta is on the right and in the other picture it is on the left... so I am a little confused. These were a trans-vaginal u/s at 8 weeks.

Just thought I'd ask for your thoughts. Our gender scan is on March 21st and I am extremely anxious to know. DH wouldn't let me find out any earlier.

Just wanted to post an update that the 18 week scan was fine so far! They will be doing scans monthly because of the Zika risk but looking good so far!xx

I have a question please...I recently had an ultrasound at 34 weeks. The baby opened its eyes and they look completely black or hollow. Is this normal? Im thinking maybe because the eyes are made of water that is why but I can't find any info on the Internet. Thank you

If you have an ultrasound at a hospital and they are looking for abnormalities because of irregular periods and they find out you are pregnant will the doctor reading the results call your doctor right away or only in emergency situations?
