we got told the sex of our baby today but she said well im not 100% as the scan was not very clear
i thought i would be desperate to get out and buy buy buy but i still feel like i dont know
Seriously has anyone had an experience where they were told one sex and gave birth to another, does it really happen?
Yes it does happen but I'm sure it doesn't happen very often. It's more common if you're told it's a girl apparently. I only know of two people who this happened to and in both cases they were told it was a girl and had a boy. We got photos of a newborn boy in a pink babygro because that's all they had! However two friends were told they were having girls and they had girls so I imagine they are more right than wrong but the wrong ones get attention and you remember them!
We were told girl on both and they were! But even still I felt really reluctant to buy - esecially with DD2 even though the sonographer told us if she was wrong she'd quit her job! We also got photo's of that area as proof (private scan) and still I was uneasy about it!
Definitely easier to make a mistake if it they say girl as the boy bits can be hiding!! I know of a friend who was told she was having a girl and family had started buying a few pink gifts......... next scan they had to come back redfaced and tell everyone it was actually going to be a boy.
We've been told we are having a little boy but the sonographer said that she was 99.99% sure. But they have to tell you there is always a chance of being wrong to cover themselves. We saw for ourselves plain as day on screen. Even at that I've been careful enough about buying too much and I am buying a good few neutrals anyway. I figure I can reuse them if I have a girl next time all going well.
It happened to my cousin, she had the room all blue and blue clothes and Baby Girl arrived
I was told by a sonographer that they are more likely to mistake a girl for a boy and tell the mother they are having a son! It's to do with the cord getting in a position that it can be mistaken for a manhood!
I met a women at a friends hen who had 3 boys and was told she was having a girl. Had everything pink as she really wanteda girl. Anyway she had a boy. He was only a few months old and hse was already talking about going again to try for a girl.
I was told we were having baby boy. Sonographer said she was almost 100% certain. Little girl was born. We were shocked but luckily hadn't bought anything gender specific at all.
i want one
we were told we were having a girl but i did not believe it. so bought mostly neutral stuff and a few pink things. it was a girl anyway thank god
Will be getting a 3d scan done aswell next month just to make sure!
Hope your scan went well. Did they change your dates in the end?
Found out on dd on big scan and 3d scan - and they were right. This time its a boy. First thing that came up on screen were his bits
