Question about ultasounds

has this happened to anyone....You go into the big scan (finding out the babies sex) and they tell you one gender then you go in for another one and they get a better image and it's the opposite gender

i just had my scan and they said this baby is a girl but the baby didn't open her legs and they even admitted that it wasn't clear to them that they were just going to say girl should i ask at my next scan to see if they can get a better view?

  • Yes, why not... if you need another scan - then ask. But I would not pay for a second scan just to find out.

  • I'd certainly ask again to be sure! My friend just found out that the little boy she thought she'd be having in August is actually a girl. Thankfully this happened before she had her, unlike another friend who was told she was having a girl and didn't find out until the baby was actually born that it was in fact a boy.
