  • one of my friends i went to school with was told she was having a girl and she had a boy....there was actually something wrong with his penis when he was born..idk what exactly but i do know she had to take him to a specialist for a while. That may be a reason why they couldnt tell

  • Yes! I was told that I was having a girl after an ultrasound at 14 weeks. The tech even put the pics on a disk showing that the baby was a girl. I started buying things for the nursery. At 22 weeks, I had a level 3 ultrasound, and the doctor said he was most definitely a boy. When he saw the first pics, he said that the tech must have been new :) I was able to return a lot of the things, but donated a lot to a home for young moms.

  • yes my youngest they told me at first it was a boy, then i had to have emergency ultrasound right before she was born and they said i think it is a girl not a boy. but they were not even sure, i looked at the doctor and hubby during pushing said it is 100 percent a girl and they stared at me lol. i was right hehe

  • Yup. Our 2nd was supposed to be a boy. Out came a girl! We hadn't done much though - no nursery so no blue walls, few boy clothes and first was a girl so that wasn't a big deal since we still had all her stuff...DH had to get out the baby girl stuff to find a take-home outfit, and we had to pick a girl name. No big deal really. I didn't plan much because a classmate of mine & her cousin were pregnant with their firsts at the same time, both told wrong, both planned everything all wrong, but were able to trade all the girl/boy stuff.
