  • never happened to me.. why, did they tell u that they were unsure, or that it only -LOOKED to be a boy or girl, (without certainty)?

  • No they say boy and they have never been wrong with any of mine and im sure there probably right this time to lol. I just met a mother at the park today who had a toddler my sons age 21months who was a girl and they told her she was having a boy the whole time and she claims she had 2 u/s one at 20weeks and again at 34weeks or so and they said boy she went in had baby and congrats its a GIRL! i know when my mom was pregnant with me they told her i was gonna be a boy but that was 27years ago.

  • My friend was told she was having a girl and ended up having a boy. Ultrasounds are not fullproof.

  • Yes it happened to me. They said they saw a scrotum at 18 weeks. When I gave birth, they all said "It's a girl!" and I couldn't stop saying "Oh my God" for a while.
    We didn't name her until the day we left :) It was such a surprise.

  • happened to a friend of a friend of mine (2 yrs ago) they were told girl....did everything pink...ended up being a boy!
    also happened to a lady at my moms church (just a couple months ago) same thing..told it was a girl..ended up being a boy
    and a guy i used to work with got his gf pregnant, they were told boy..and she ended up having a girl (6-7 months ago)

    which is why i am personally against finding out i like the excitement and suprise of not knowing! :)

  • My aunts best friend was high risk and had numerous ultrasounds. The babys room and baby shower were themed hello kitty! @ 37weeks she went in for an ultrasound and HER SON was spread eagle without a doubt a boy. I guess better to have those last 3 weeks to return and re paint than finding out in the delivery room!

  • We have 2 friends who were told wrong. One (4 years ago) was told girl, she had a boy, so she made her mom run out a buy a new boy car seat to take him home in bc she didn't want him to have to have all his 'first ride' pictures in a pink car seat.

    Then another friend of ours was told she was having a boy, ended up having a girl, 18 months ago....

    We didn't find out with either, it's so much more fun. I love the videos of my dh telling everyone what we had.... :)

  • Happened to me, ....they told me my oldest was a girl....I knew he was a boy though. Everyone thought I was crazy, but I painted the nursery blue, and decorated in Pinocchio!! I was right.

    That was 28 years ago however, and I'm told the ultra sounds are better now!!
