My Mother-In-Law was told almost 30 years ago that she was having a boy – ended up being a girl and she was born on April Fools Day!  No one believed them when they said the baby was actually a girl!

@eecuadrado:  I was supposed to be a boy. However its important to add that the tech was about 85% sure and leaned towards me being a boy. she told my parents something along the lines of either its a boy or her thumb is right there in between her legs. I was supposed to be named a junior after my dad and my parents had no girls names (i was their first). So I ended up being named after the designer of one of the nurses shirts with a fairly common name so it worked out.

also, being that the tech was only 85% my parents and everyone only bought me gender neutral clothes so I didnt have a bunch of blue stuff to wear when i came out the womb, i was in a bunch of pale yellows and greens. and everyone (strangers) mistaked me for a boy because I had no hair

@eecuadrado:  If our girl turns out to be a boy he’s going to be quite the princess lol!  The more pink I buy the more I worry lol. I know about 15 people having babies right now, and only 1 other person is having a girl though so I feel more confident that the odds are in my favor that she is in fact a girl.

DH (jokingly) said he’d be sad if she ends up being a boy because he thinks that would mean he had small manhood haha.

See, I really personally like the color blue and don’t like pink at all. I would dress a girl in blues, purples, greens (esp if she gets my eyes) whatever. I’m going to be so confusing to the neighbors. They don’t know or care as infants. I was in all kinds of outfits as a baby. Lots of plain onsies though. IDK. I’m more worried about like 5-18 their gender being a way bigger deal. IE girls IMO are harder in some ways and easier in others. Can’t do anything now, except wait and see. And think of postives for both.

They told me I was having a boy when it was a girl.  One of the top OB practices in a major city.  But > 10 years ago.

My sister was supposed to be a Kyle, lol. My Mum was told all through her pregnancy that she was expecting a boy… bought boy clothes, painted the nursery blue, etc…

I was on Facebook about three months ago and saw pictures of a friend’s new son. I was REALLY confused, because everything had been girl, girl, girl with her. Yep, she didn’t find out her son was male until she gave birth to him.

@kes18:  Thats what I have always heard. People don’t normally mess up on girls but they mess up on boys. If its a boy then it is a boy but if its a girl, it’s a boy. lol

I had my current u/s at 18 weeks and the tech said she was “pretty sure” it is a girl. I was scheduled for another more detailed ultrasound for last week but its been pushed back two weeks 🙁 I’m so eager to buy some girl clothes but I will wait in case the tech was mistaken

I know my aunt was told her kid was a boy, and Audrey is a girl!

But my birth class lady says she’s only heard of it happening once in the last 5 years!

I think there’s always going to be stories because nobody is perfect, human error. These days technology is better but of course never 100% perfect.

I still worry sometimes but I’ve had 4 different techs say girl. If they’re wrong, I’ll shoot them all 🙂 Haha.

I’ve now had 3 ultrasounds, two of which were several hours each. I assume all those techs agreed it was a girl, since no one was correcting us as we referred to “her” after the first one!
