The only stories I’ve heard of this happening recently were actually two girls that were thought to be boys! Something about a hand or foot sitting funny to make it look like a boy. I really want to be team green. but DH is against it. I’m praying it’s super obvious and there’s no mistake.

@eecuadrado:  2 years ago, a girl that I went to high school with gave birth to her baby “girl” – she had been posting about this baby girl all throughout the pregnancy and made the birth announcement on FB with the baby girl’s name and birth stats. Then the next day she posted this “interesting news” about their new baby boy:  Their baby was born with a very swollen bottom and they were told that it was a girl, as the ultrasounds had all suggested… however… after an ultrasound the next day after birth they found out that their baby did not have ‘girl parts’ but had ‘boy parts’ instead…!!! Everything was too swollen to tell at the point of birth.

I was just floored when she posted that. Anyone else ever heard of this happening?

My husband’s youngest brother was supposed to be a girl.  His dad had 3 sons [now 4 since she is a he haha] & so they were so ready for a girl ;).  BIL is 11 now & DH’s stepmom still has the dress he was supposed to come home in haha.

Many moons ago they used to determine sex by the heart rate. My brother was supposed to be a girl, and I was supposed to be twins.

Modern detection is much more accurate.

I was supposed to be a boy and ended up coming out most definitely a girl. I also came out 3 months early though, so I confused the doctors through the whole thing.

The hospital where I had my daughter told a couple they were having the opposite gender, and the family sued afterward. After that, the hospital no longer revealed the baby’s sex even upon request, up until a few years ago.

I went to a prenatal class and the same nurse has been teaching the classes for years. She said that every year, at least a couple different people in her classes are told they’re having a having a baby girl and it turns out to be a boy. She suggested that if you’re told you’re having a girl to get a 3D ultrasound to confirm. She seemed to think that if you’re told you’re having a boy though, that it’s pretty accurate. I saw very obvious boy parts when I had my ultrasound at 21 weeks so I’m quite convinced we’re having a boy!! 🙂

When my sister was pregnant with her twins, she was told she was having 2 girls.  Turned out she had one girl and one boy.  She didn’t care one way or the other as they had a pretty neutral nursey, but my Brother-In-Law is VERY happy he has a son.

@eecuadrado:  my mom’s dr told her I was a boy, the cord was wrapped around my leg??, but my older brother apparently told the dr that no, i was a girl cause he already had a brother & he wanted a sister. he’s a goof, but yeah it happened to my mom in 89 lol

@E_Lynne615:  I’ve only heard of cases like this when there is some kind of malformation. I’ve never heard of them using an ultrasound after the fact to determine though, usually if there’s question they run genetic blood tests.
