I’m only 11 weeks at this point so I’m still far off from knowing the gender. My husband and I decided that even if we find out the gender we wouldnt tell anyone because I dont want to get bombarded with all blue or all pink gifts. But anyway my main question is how accurate is the information they give you? I’m nervous they’ll tell me its a girl and I’ll prepare for a girl and then on the day of the birth It’ll be a boy or vice versa. Has this happened to anyone?

This is what it says in a book I’m currently reading
“after the 20th week of pregnancy, generally more than 90% accurate at being able to tell a baby’s sex.”

they were right on a boy and a girl for me.

I think it depends on how early you get the ultrasound. I have heard COUNTLESS times when they tell you the sex around 15- 16 weeks and it’s been wrong. In these cases, my friends (3 different friends!!!) were told BOY at the early ultrasound, and then GIRL a few weeks later!

I’ve never been pregnant, but have a lot of friends/family who have had babies recently and I think as long as you’re 20 weeks along or more, it should be accurate.

I was nervous too, but thank goodness they were right! We had a girl so of course everything people gave us was pink.

Well, I’m not sure yet, I’m 17 weeks, I found out when I’m 20wks though.
My sister was told she was having a boy, and had a boy.
My mom was told sher was having a girl, and had a girl.
The ONLY person I know who was inaccurate was my sister’s friend. She was born in South America 17 years ago, and was told she’d be a boy and they were wrong. But it was South America – not a rich country- and awhile ago, so that story probably isn’t as valid anymore lol.
Everyone else I know has been accurate 🙂
and yes, they do suggest waiting until 20 weeks, I’m jealous of the bees on here who aren’t as far along as I am and finding out soon, but the U/S technician said 20wks is recommended so I’m waiting 🙂

I am 38 Weeks pregnant and we went in for an ultrasound at about 16 weeks, at first the tech said its a girl, then about 3 minutes later she said wait …oh my, its a boy! We didnt place a whole lot of faith either way until we went to the OB a few weeks later and she confirmed its a boy!
(the first time we used an elective place that you can go to get cute pics of your baby in the womb)
ETA:We are set to have a c-section October 4th, i guess we will find out for sure then!
