    Not me, but the lady in the labour room next to me was told a girl at all her scans, we met in the feeding room at hospital and she introduced me to her boy wrapped in a pink blanket lol

    A friend was told it was a girl – much to the delight of the whole family as all the grandchildren were boys, so there was a pink overload of presents and along arrived the cutest little boy!! That’s the only time I ever heard but I think it stuck in my head as there were 13 grandsons and the whole family were obsessed that finally a little girl was coming into the family 😀

    we didn;t find out sex with DS and aren’t finding out sex with this pregnancy.

    We were told girl at our anatomy scan. But because I had heard that they can be wrong everytime I had a scan I had them confirm. I gave birth to a girl.

    I’m aware this can happen but I don’t think it will in our case! Currently 36 weeks and last ultrasound the technician confirmed baby is a boy (and with the position he was in we could see his boy parts). 🙂

    We were told “I think it’s a girl?”

    And it was a girl! But we had loads of gender neutral clothes just in case. I loooove mint green on babies so it worked for me!

    Happened to my coworker! Said she was having a girl, and luckily they caught it not too long after. Kind of funny since she posted all over Facebook about it, and then had to be like “Actually…its a boy”! I know she was excited either way, but what a whirlwind of emtions that would be…I can’t imagne!

    Right now my other coworker is prego now, and she found it was a boy and hoping its a mistake!

    Bloodwork confirmed at 11w that we were having a boy. We didn’t tell the US tech what we were having during the anatomy scan, and she said boy as well.

    We were told girl, but to double check at a later scan. My OB dismissed this, did a quick check herself instead of an actual tech and also said girl. We had a boy, but he had a problem with his urethra that caused a bend…so the ultrasound tech had a reason to be confused. Other than the initial shock, it wasn’t a big deal since most of our stuff was gender neutral and I had no preference either way.
