    Nope! Got quite a surprise!

    I was told it’s a girl at 12 weeks! Trying to take that with a grain of salt. I’m only 15 weeks now so still a ways to go until I really find out.

    Our anatomy scan was at 20+6, it was very clear that it was a boy, his legs were wide open and he was very proud show us ๐Ÿ˜‚.

    We did an elective ultrasound at 16 weeks and it was a boy – clear as day haha! They also confirmed that at our anatomy scan at 21 weeks ๐Ÿ™‚

    Did an anatomy scan at 20 weeks 1 day, and it was very clearly a boy. I don’t deliver until November but there is no way it could have been confused, like the 2 posters above me, clear as day a BOY!

    However, I can imagine the other way around, if they said it was a girl there could be less certainty if it could be a boy that was hiding the goods? That is more likely than predicting boy and it being a girl because my ultrasound was SO OBVIOUS.

    I was team green both times so not my experience, but a lady I work with was told girl at 20 weeks only to find out it was a boy during a later growth scan.

    Yeah, you’d think it would be obvious but I’ve heard more stories of ‘scab said girl, baby was aboy’ 

    I have one of each. My pregnancies were more similar than not, but I was sick with my daughter whereas I’d only felt it with my son.

    I’ve only heard of the gender scan being wrong twice in all of my parents’ circles of friends and my circle of friends. Both times it was said to be a girl and it ended up being a boy. 

    Definitely a moment of teasing for these poor boys XD Pink nurseries and everything!

    kiram :  This is my first pregnancy so I can’t tell you if I’ve experienced it being different expecting a boy or a girl ๐Ÿ˜Š. 

    I completely understand the being thrilled at having a healthy baby but also kind of wanting a boy ๐Ÿ˜….

    kiram :  mine were all accurate, they were all the standard, medical ones at around 20 weeks. An old friend of mine though used one of those ultrasound companies for a gender reveal ultrasound and it was wrong.

    megm1099 :  “Both times it was said to be a girl and it ended up being a boy.” — Interesting. We just recently had the first example of this in my extended friends & family group, and it was also supposed to be girl who ended up a boy. Maybe some techs think “can’t see weiner, must be a girl” without actually looking for girl parts to confirm.

    I did the blood test so we knew at 12 weeks and the scan at 20 confirmed.

    We had gender scans at 16ish weeks for both kids.  

    1st was very obviously a boy.  Confirmed at 20 and 36 week scan.  No doubts it was a boy! 

    2nd was a girl.  Confirmed at 20 and 36 weeks scan.  I was really paranoid they were wrong though as I had someone on my birth board on another site say they had been told girl twice (bought loads of pink things!) and then went for a growth scan and saw boy parts.  She had a boy.  Thankfully mine was right and it was a girl!
