    I think they are more likely to get it wrong the other way round (ie they say it's a girl and it turns out to be a boy). With a boy, there is more to see, but they can hide it if they cross their legs, can't do the same the other way around!

    I can only go by my experience. I haven't been tracking the figures but majority of the women I care for who have been told that they are having a boy do get a boy. It has been more common for those who have been told they are having a girl sometime get a boy. But the parents usually say the sonographer wasn't 100% :)

    I would have thought it was easier to mistake it the other way around. I feel confident my little one is a boy because I got to see a good shot of between his legs at both my anomaly scans!

    I think to some extend it depends how far along you were when you were told as well. I'm quite certain that our boy is indeed a boy from the 20 week scan picture.

    its because at 20 weeks the clitoris can be swollen looking like a penis...thats why they never say they are sure 100%

    Actually, 20 weeks is typically the point where the genitalia is most easily seen and not swollen anymore, but before that I wouldn't trust it. I would trust a 20 week scan.

    my aunt was told a boy, and had a girl.
    when i went for my scan, i asked how accurate it is, she said 'well i know what i see' then went on to show me his parts. i saw them myself! and it looked 100% male to me lol! but still i am worried about him turning out to be a girl. mainly cause i have decorated and brought everything blue!

    There were loads of women on here when i 1st joined that were told they were having boys and ended up with girls and vice versa. ive been scared as ive been told mine is a girl and have went mad with pink, even the pram has pink init. so i would be in trouble if they have gotten it wrong.

    u should try posting this on baby club, for ppl who have already had there babies, may get more answers there

    I've been told its gana be a boy, but it would be so weird if it was a girl coz u automatically have this image in your head!

    Luckily we have decided not to tell anyone about the sex and I have bought everything in neutral colours! No blues so hopefully if it was a girl everything would still be useable.
