A co-worker of mine about 5 years ago was supposed to have a little girl. Surprised us all when we got pictures of her baby boy over the company email.

At any rate, even if your baby did come out a girl, I’m sure she won’t care that her room is blue or she has to wear puppies and dinosaurs on her jammies.

My Brother-In-Law has 2 girls, they tried for another. They were told this would be a boy. The bought all boy things and it popped out a girl! They were happy she was healthy but she had to come home in a blue outfit, and they had to exchange all the stuff. 

The baby is adorable and now 10 or 11 months old. No more kids for them. They have 3 girls now.

My mom never wanted to know my gender. But when she was pregnant with my brother in 1998, they were certain he was a girl. Honestly, I don’t even know how that happens.

I don’t know anyone personally, but I’ve heard of a few. Mostly it’s people who’ve been told it’s a girl and it’s really a boy. Very few of them have been told it was a boy and it’s really a girl.
I was team green for my first but even if I had known I would still have had a few neutral items just to be sure. Don’t want to be in this woman’s shoes.

i know of a few couples who were convinced they were having one gender and then got the opposite. they were like, “we had this many ultrasounds, we saw it, we know what we’re having…” boy were they surprised, haha.

i saw one couple on tv who were expecting twin boys- they had boy names chosen, all boy clothes, evreything was boy boy boy. they had twin girls.

i always find it kind of funny because everyone knows (or should know) that it’s not always a sure thing, so you should be at least little bit prepared just in case, haha.

I went for an elective ultrasound at 18w5d (performed by a friend who is an u/s tech) and she told us we’re having a girl. 

At our anatomy scan at 20w2d, the tech told us it’s a BOY! 

At the elective u/s, the baby’s legs were crossed at the ankles. Our friend thought that they were still loose enough apart that she could tell enough of what she was seeing, and that she was confident it was a girl. But then at the anatomy scan, the legs were wide open, and we could clearly see the scrotum and penis. The tech even made comments a few times throughout the scan, when she was passing over that area to get from one spot to another, that this baby was NOT shy about showing off the goods, haha… So we’re pretty confident at this point that it is, in fact, a boy!

Due March 17, so we shall see! But we, too, have been stocking up on boy things! 

 

And just for funsies…

The “girl” shot at 18w5d: 

 

The “boy” shot at 20w2d: 

 

If nothing else, you can definitely see how much wider apart the legs were in the second one vs. the first.

@eecuadrado:  They can certainly make a mistake and usually they tell you that it’s not 100% when they tell you the sex. Things can be hidden or appear differently than they are. Although I think the majority is a “girl” who turns out to be a boy because his winky was hiding. I think most of the time if they say boy, it’s a boy.

All I think of is the Simpsons:

Homer: “It’s a boy! And WHAT a boy!”

Dr. Hibbert: “Um.. that’s the umbilical cord. It’s a girl”

I can only imagine it’s even more difficult to see during an ultrasound and things can appear differently!

@eecuadrado:  I don’t know anyone this has happened to in real life, but typically if you’re told boy, it doesn’t end up being a girl. The other way around happens more frequently (told girl and it ends up being a boy).

In utero my name was Zach…yeah I’m definitely a girl, my name now starts with E. My parents were rather suprised especially because I came 5 weeks early.
