Female Gender Pics

Patients, in general, tend to believe that determining male gender should be very easy any time, and the only way to determine female gender is the lack of male parts. Wrong! But can we see the uterus and ovaries of a female fetus? Read an email below from a mom with this very question.

mama-to-be:  Is it possible to see Baby’s ovaries and uterus with ultrasound? I’ve read these organs are formed around 20/22 Weeks. I was thinking it was possible to see them at 22 Weeks or later?

wwavb:  A fetus is fully formed at 12 Weeks. And, no, a uterus and ovaries cannot be seen in a fetus anytime in pregnancy as they are simply too small and gender can only be determined by examining external genitalia.


Second Trimester

See below for great, textbook female gender images!

This image is of a baby girl at about 16 Weeks. Here, you can only really see Baby’s bottom but not her legs…imagine Baby is pulling her feet up to her nose. Looking up from the underside, only cheeks and girly parts will be seen, right?

Note the three arrows which point to three white lines representing the labia on the outside and clitoris in the center. Sometimes the lines look more like white dots depending on the angle. As Baby gets a little bigger, she will start to develop some fat in her skin and the labia will plump up a bit, resembling the “hamburger” to which most patients refer!

This image is around the 16 Weeks, also. You can see here how the top labia looks more like a dot and the middle and bottom white echoes look more like lines.

Third Trimester

Finally, we’ll end out this post with a perfect example of 3rd Trimester female gender! This baby is about 32 Weeks, and we found her sitting in the best position to obtain this shot. Notice how the white lines have morphed into the labia you would expect to see on Baby Girl. Most patients can typically “see” her parts for themselves pretty easily at this stage.
