Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? gestures
A: I am not able to record right now, but the second one was probably the closest. It is basically pronounced as jeschures. Make sure not to add a T sound at the end because in the second one you added a T. Also make sure that when you pronounce gestures you make the g sound more like a j and the t sound more like ch. Your pronunciations were more like 1) chechus 2) jeschust 3) chesches. Remember, it needs to be jeschures. Since you are doing US, and not UK, the r needs to be pronounced. Keep working at it, and you will have it in no time.
