I think it should be pretty accurate. Then again girls I’ve heard are harder to tell but I’d say trust the tech. Great news!

At 15 weeks exactly, a 3D place told me girl.  She turns 1 next week and is definitely still a girl 🙂

Pretty accurate these days but mistakes are still made

I found out at exactly 15 weeks and one day. It was definitely apparent, baby’s bits were definitely male. lol. But it is really a posiyive sign that she said girl this early. Usually if there was confusion, they would just tell you that they are not quite sure since there might be swelling down there. I would bet it’s a girl =]

If they had told me boy, I might go with it, but girl I think I wouldn’t be as certain about, just because I’ve heard of more mistakes being made with girls. But I didn’t have an ultrasound at that point so I don’t personally know! 🙂

I had an elective scan at 16 weeks and got told girl – though I didn’t believe it until we checked again at the anatomy scan at 19 weeks. Oh, and I checked AGAIN at 26 weeks, haha. 🙂

My (much younger) cousin was supposed to be a boy. As her mother was driving to the hospital “Isn’t She Lovely” came on the radio, and my aunt said “Ralph! (Her husband) We’re having a girl!” And she was a girl!

I had a scan at 15w and they said “90% sure it was a girl, but things can change”. I had another scan at 19w and again, they said “girl”. Our last was at 25w and just to be sure, I asked again and yep, “girl”. If she is born with a wang, I’m going to be REALLY upset, haha!

While registering at babies r us yesterday we ran into an old coworker and our old HR, both had issues where they were told between 15 and 18 weeks that they were having a girl, and both came out boys. The HR said that in her career (big box realtor covering multiple atores) she has had it come up at least once a year that the gender is wrong from the scan. She was happy when we said it was a boy because its almost always boys being called girls in the ultrasounds. 

I would keep the tags on anything you buy and get double checked around 20 weeks. My dr’s office refused to check the gender before 20 weeks exactly.
