is there anyway to tell?

I can't really tell, but I learned at our ultrasound that my untrained eye really can't pick up much. I was amazed when we had our ultrasound, the tech knew it was a boy after about 5 seconds. It's amazing what they can make out! They could see pulminary arteries and heart chambers and brain regions, and It was mostly just a blur to me. The rib cage was cool, and at one point a little foot appeared clearly. :-) We got a little profile shot, too, and once they explained the gender picture it was pretty obvious to me. But ours is a boy, and I think sometimes that's more clear. Did they tell you the orientation of the baby in this picture? Because I can't really tell!

From this angle you can't tell, since this is just a profile shot. :)

no she didn't even let me see any of the ultrasound. we had an elective u/s (went 2 times just to be sure) and both times she told us girl and we seen the 3 lines. this one we didn't see anything but she said right away it's a girl. i'm just debating on paying for yet another elective to get a clear shot. being told 3 times it's a girl I should be convinced, but I guess bc we want a girl so bad we afraid of a mistake. I plan on talking to my ob on the 11th to see if she has any input on the situation. you figure my insurance paid for this u/s they would have given me more than just one picture and let me see the screen.
