A friend of mine thought she was having a girl (her third!) until her fifth month, when she found out there were dangly bits.

@eecuadrado:  Yep, last year one of my co-workers was told she was having a boy, but she delivered a girl instead!

My cousin was supposed to be a girl – they determined it via amniocentesis and he tested as a girl because he’s XXY and 25 years ago the technology was so different!

Twenty something years ago, a friend of my mom’s was told she was having a son. They bought all this blue stuff and even had a muralist paint the nursert like an airport. 

They had a girl.

I don’t know anyone who had a gender mistake.  I heard it was more common when they thought it was a girl.  Boys are really obvious…if it’s there, it’s definitely a boy.  I guess for a girl, if they don’t see the penis they could assume girl and be wrong.

I haven’t heard of it recently, my little sister was supposed to be a boy, my mom refused to bring her home is the little suit they had brought so Dad had to run out for a “coming home” dress. lol

I had a coworker who had 4 boys get pregnant with her fifth and final pregnancy. She was over the moon because she was told she was having a girl and she ended up pushing out a boy. I would have sobbed so loudly. Not because I wouldn’t want/love my new son, but after having 4 boys and wishing for a girl each time. Crazy. 

I am also not 100% convinced this LO is a girl. It would be just my luck that she turns out to be a He when D Day comes. lol

Yeah, this definitely happens. Usually it’s predicted to be girl but turns out to be boy. Although it can, rarely, go the other way. It depends on a lot of things: the gestational age at the time of the ultrasound, the position of the baby and maternal weight are the biggest factors that affec the ability of the ultrasound to correctly determine gender. But don’t worry, the gender is correct most of the time!
