85% a girl

So last thursday i had a my ultrasound at 18 weeks and they said there was no genital spotting but three lines which usually indicates a girl, but my baby was being so stubborn it wouldn't budge for nothing. She said shes 85% sure its a girl? Is that a good percentage that shes right? I was for sure it was a boy!! I just can't let myself believe its a girl ?????

  • My son was %85 a girl at 16 weeks, 19 weeks, 20 weeks and 36 weeks. I'm glad I didn't take any of the tags off. We had to return all the pink for blue.

  • Thats what they tell everyone. Even if the picture is clear to whether the fetus is male or female. But If they didnt get a clear picture for you I wouldnt really count on what they are telling you.

  • I wouldn't paint anything pink or blue until the baby gets here.

    There was no doubt that my three were boys by their ultrasounds. I mean I even knew with the first one and I'd never even seen an ultrasound before!

    They told me they were 95% sure. I still didn't buy a whole lot blue. The only 100% sure I got was with the youngest...I had an amnio with him. lol

  • I had a son my first time and he for sure had a wee wee :) with this pregnancy I was told that it was a girl. The tech pointed to the three lines and said those are the girl parts. Im thinking that if she saw the three lines then its a pretty sure thing its a girl.

  • My little girl had the three little lines but I wouldn't start painting everything pink just yet. You didn't get a good shot, maybe you should go back for another.
