I have found with a lot of those stories of saying girl when its a boy, is they say its a girl IF they cant see a boy part, as aposed to actually seeing a girl part. So id def get another scan.
Here was my gender pic, very distinct three lines. If it does turn out to be a boy, he may Have no genitals at all because there is definitely no balls or anything there.
When we found out, the sonographer gave us a photo of the doddle for our boys and with our last it was a girl, I couldn't believe it, we checked at the 32week and it was confirmed a girl again. But still I didn't really believe it until she was in my arms.
Lhy - not sure how this post happened I was just reading on my phone left it open. I blame dd lol.

I have been in your position
We have 2 boys and I wanted to find out the gender with #3.. I'd been told at 16 weeks with DS2 that it looked like a girl (it was a rough guess and I certainly didn't buy pink!) but by 22 weeks we were told and I could clearly see we were infact having a boy!
So with #3 she said she was 'about 70% sure bub was a girl' and then changed her mind to 80% sure by the end of the ultrasound... She did not give us any pictures of the gender though so in the end I paid for a gender scan. We were told she was 100% confident bub was a girl and was able to clearly show me... We most definitely do have a beautiful girl who is now 17 months old
I would try and get a gender scan done if you are worried - Are you in QLD? They aren't very expensive and it gave me the certainty I needed after 2 boys
Oh and PS - Diamond Eyes.. That is most definitely a little girl!!

I worried with my first DD because we didn't see the gender on screen. I kept asking when she was born if she was really a girl. Everyone ignored me at first though because they'd already seen her bits and weren't concerned!
With this bub we very clearly saw the 3 lines to indicate another girl so I'm not panicking .
If I were you though I'd get a gender scan to find out one way or the other. As expression said, they aren't too expensive and it will give you peace of mind.
Have you got a photo?
Our ultrasounds VERY clearly indicated a boy both times
My DH's brother was a 'girl' according to three different sonographers. I don't know how that happened, but it was a while ago and technology has advanced a lot since then.
