Baby dating scan be wrong

In these situations, you may actually be sixteen weeks (or more) at the time of your first ultrasound.

During your pregnancy, you will likely have at least one or two routine ultrasounds.

, Hayley Martin, 30, from East Yorkshire, said she was given the devastating news that her baby daughter, Ava-Joy, would die during labour or just moments after birth, at her 20-week scan.

But, instead of taking the termination that was offered to them by doctors, she and husband Scott, 30, decided to take the pregnancy to full term so that their baby’s organs could go to other newborns in need.

Except in certain unfortunate circumstances, prenatal ultrasounds are not done specifically just to check on the fetal sex.

The part of the fetus that is developing into either girl parts or boy parts is called the genital tubercle.

It turns out that the way the genital tubercle forms into the penis of a boy fetus is different from how it forms into the clitoris of a girl fetus.

Remember, a healthy baby is your ultimate goal and the real reason for prenatal ultrasound is to help make sure you achieve that goal.
