I just had my US yesterday, and it was preformed by an OB. I was wondering what are the chances of being told that the baby is a boy from a scan and finding out that it is actually a girl when the baby is born? This pregnancy is completely different from my other two, and I was really hoping for a girl this time.... trying not to be disappointed... I know I will love him no matter what.



purpleunicornandi - 1398 days ago probably not having anymore... not sure... but my husband's cousin was told boy, and she had a girl. I would have put money that my SIL was having a boy after seeing their US picture (they didn't find out) but they had a girl...(their US picture reminded me of both of my other sons' US pictre... looked like there was bits and pieces there... :) I'll take what I get...

charl2404 - 1399 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) My SIL had an us and was told she was def having a boy but after 2 more scans she found out that they were wrong and her baby is def a girl!She's had another 3 scans since then and it's still a girl so it's looking likely that they def got it wrong when she was told it was a boy!I know it is not very common to get it wrong that way round but they do sometimes!

6girlsplus1 - 1399 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) with how advanced U/S technology is now it is pretty uncommon to mistake a girl for a boy, expecially after 18 weeks. I have 4 girls and 3 pregnancies were identical and 4th one was WAY different, I thought for sure she was a boy, but nope.... another girl! Sorry, I know the let down feeling, it fades fast!

MadysonsMommy - 1399 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Yep, usually once they say boy that's what you're getting. Those parts are pretty unmistakable. Like everyone else said, every now and then they'll say girl and it ends up being a boy but usually not the other way around. My two pregnancys have been IDENTICAL in every way shape and form so I was sure I was getting another girl but I've got a boy this time. I think just because the pregnancy seems different doesn't necessarily mean you're getting a different gender. But like you said, you will love him no matter what!!

Julie L - 1399 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) ok it wont let me delete my last comment which really doesnt make sense. LOL i think its easier for them to say its a girl and have the baby end up being a boy. but if they say its a boy it usually is

Julie L - 1399 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) i think its alot easier for them to mistake a girl for a boy then a boy for a girl. i had my us on tuesday and its a boy and there is no mistaking it.

bethk - 1399 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) There is a chance! My mum was told she was having a girl and turned out she had a boy! Another lady on her ward was told she was having a boy and had a girl instead! So luckily my mother and the other lady swapped the baby clothes rather than being lumbered with a load of clothes they couldnt use! So there is always a chance as the umbilical cord could be the winky thats been sighted! But usually it is a boy if they say boy x

babybrookes - 1399 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) aw i know i have 2 boys and im 13 weeks pregnant now and im really hoping for a girl, plus im like you my symptoms and pregnancy is so much different from my two boys, but with an ultrasound it sort of depends really if the babys in a good possition or not to give you a clear and precise answer on the sex the babys leg could have been in the possition and the ob thought a boy, but i dont really hear alot of the ultrasound genders be wrong but if you like you could always ask your ob to double check because you know that this is completly different than your previous babys she may do but i would still say 50/50 until you know for certain i hope this helped i would love another boy though they are very very cute and cudly with their mummys lol a little girl though is always nice to have though when u have lads xxxxxxxx

jade1541 - 1399 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) not alot im afraid if they say girl it can be wrong cuz they can ust miss the boy bits but if they see boy bits theres no mistaking :( im sue you will get used to the idea :) xx
