17 weeks ultrasound looks like girl

but sonographer says she can't be positive until 20 weeks even though she got a decent view between the legs. Have any of you had an incorrect guess at 17.5 weeks?
My husband really wants a boy.... sigh

  • My friend was told both times she was having boys,well she ended up having two girls so they can not be real accurate.

  • I never even had a guess before 20 weeks... they say it's too hard to tell. I had several ultrasounds this pregnancy, and they didn't tell me until I was about 23 weeks. I would think it would be a good guess, but don't go out and buy everything in pink until they say for sure.

  • I found out that my son was boy at 17 weeks. They are pretty accurate.

  • Thank you- I did tell him it was his fault and he isn't allowed to go all King Henry the 8th on i have two girls already so the pink jones is kind of over for me... I was going to register for maybe one or two pink blankies but for the most part the room is winnie the pooh... so it will work no matter what.
    They also wouldn't guess for me until 20 weeks with the other two...

  • I was 17 weeks and they correctly predicted a boy for me!

  • the genitals of both sexes start out looking like boys. That's why they shouldnt try to predict it early.

  • I was 17 weeks 3 days when I found out I am having a boy. I saw his full package. And I have a picture of it.
