how many mommies have had their ultrasound be wrong? i had a 3d one done at 21 weeks and it was amazing, I mean we could already tell that our little girl looks like her daddy, but i still have a fear that it was wrong and its our little BOY that looks like his daddy, i know they say those things are accurate but I'm going to have alot pf pink to exchange for blue if it was wrong lol

  • I think alot of people have those thoughts.. I knew I was having a girl but there is always going to be that what if.

  • those things are not all.. especially not at 21 weeks.. hehe ;) if so, then you are very lucky that you dont have to exchange

    it took us 30weeks to find out that it will be a girl... to 80% ;)

    our OB always said: "Im pretty sure its a girl.. 80-90%.. but i wont dare to say its DEF. a girl"... because those machines are not 100% accurate. wait a few more weeks and if they (THEN) still say it looks like a girl then the chances are good.. i had 2 different OBs telling me its probably a girl so i bought all the pink stuff :D

  • I was told at 20 weeks that it was 90% a girl. At 24 weeks definitely a boy! A coworker was told she was having a boy all along and ended up having a girl. Maybe ask for another ultrasound sometime down the road if you're worried? Congratulations!

  • You can tell the sex as early as 18 weeks and the ultrasound is usually done between 18-20 weeks to determine sex. When I had my ultrasound at 18 weeks they told me it was a boy and we could all see. I knew I was having a boy from the beginning and the ultrasound was right. I've only ever heard of one person's ultrasound being wrong but I've never known anyone personally.

  • If it was a 3D you should really be able to see what the sex was.
