It could have been a penis, but I know when I look at some u/s pics, the cord can look like a penis too. If the tech didn't think it was a penis, it probably wasn't. Or was she not telling you since she couldn't get all the info they needed to make sure baby is functioning/growing properly? Maybe she is making sure you come back, before telling you. haha
techs can't tell you the gender here.. they send it off to your care provider and they can tell you if you want.
Weird that they can tell you everything is okay but not gender! At ours they will tell you the gender if they can tell but can't tell you if anything is wrong or not. They send the report to your doc, then you go over it at your next appt.
it really depends on the tech you get. some are really nice and some are silent. she even asked if we wanted to know the gender, but since we're having a gender reveal party, she was not allowed to write it in a sealed note, so we're having my midwife do that.
they also aren't allowed to diagnose anything, and wasn't that she was saying things were good/bad, it was more like "here's the heart, and you can see that all 4 chambers are working" etc... i think some are more flexible than others.
