Could they be wrong about it being a boy?

I had a sono. done at the ER 2 weeks ago and they said it looked like a boy but they werent 100% positive. Could they be wrong? Im going for another from my doc. on the 22'nd and I was just wondering if I might be in for a surprise?

  • It's never 100% until they are born. I had a friend that was told it was a girl just to deliver a boy. Alot of techs won't say for sure 100% in case they are wrong you can't go back and sue them or something.

  • They can always be wrong. The only 100% way to know is birth. My first "girl" was born with a penis. I don't even bother finding out now.

  • Until the baby is born, there's always a possibility that the drs are wrong. However, if your LO is an exhibitionist, then it's pretty clear. Both my boys were CLEARLY boys, legs spread wide, no room for error! LOL!

  • Why are you upset about it?

  • I have always heard that if you are told you are having a girl, be prepared for maybe having a boy because they baby's legs might be in a position where you might not see their little penis. So, I see being told that you are having a boy from the get-go is (while not 100%) a pretty good chance that the doctor is accurate. :) Good luck, boys are FUN!

  • They can occasionally be wrong (I had a friend who was told that she was having a boy, only to have a girl pop out, and another friend who was told to expect a girl but had a boy!) I think they are far more often right than wrong, but you can never know for sure until they are born!
