Have me scan next week and we are going to try find out sex if its possible.... just wondering have ye heard stories where they said it would be a boy/girl and the oppisite came out. Think if they say its a boy its pretty accurate but if they say its a girl they might be wrong.... is that right?

I, along with everyone else, was sure it our baby was going to be a boy until the scan revealed it would be a girl. At this stage, we've named our baby and had a Baby Shower. So if it turns out to be a boy, he had better used to liking the colour pink! :o0 PAUL

I've heard a story about them getting it wrong alright.. but only through a friend of a friend of a friend. I reckon it's pretty accurate.

I know of four people in the last year who found out the sex and it proved to be wrong - all with different hospitals and consultants. One girl was told at 3 different scans that she was having a girl, and it turned out to be a boy.

I know of at least 3 people who were told they were having one sex and hey presto! they had the other!!!! Have to say this is a major factor in me not wanting to find out......that and the element of surprise!!

I'd say stick to cream/lemon/lime colours just in case!
