Have you ever had an ultrasound be wrong?

We just found out at our ultrasound that we were having a little boy. But this is based off of the ultrasound. We are currently 18 weeks along. Was your ultrasound ever wrong?

  • We never searched for the sex of the baby, but my ultrasound with my son told me he was going to be born December 7th. He came along on Januray 21st!!

  • my first one with my son was right and they say im hving a boy again im pretty sure its correct cuz even i could tell by looking at the u/s its a boy but my friend was told they were having a girl and when the baby was born it was a boy and this was only 3months ago so yes sometimes it happens but i think its based on how good of a u/s tech you have and if they truly know what they are talking about.

  • Normally if they say its a boy then its a boy. But this time they say its a girl and I'm not so sure.

  • My dh was told his son was a girl. He was born at 27 weeks and was a boy.

  • As far as I am concerned if they tell you it's a girl...unless you see a clear could be either. But if they say its a boy then it usually is since its a little hard to mistake clear penis shot. It looks like a little turtle.

  •  If they see a pickle then it's definitely a boy. If not ,it can be a girl or boy. (sometimes pickles hide) REALLY!!

  • I was told the entire time that I was having a girl. Needless to say, at 41 weeks my son was born. I had a C-section and my doctor said "congradulations on your little boy." I figured I misunderstood due to the meds, so I asked him to verify. He is definitely a boy.

  • My OB told me it is best to have U/S after 20 weeks to see if it's a boy, something to do with deveolpment of the SIL was told a girl and it was a boy, I just knew with my first but my other two, the U/S was right, one boy, one girl....
