    Default Anyone been told wrong gender on early scan?

    At our 12 week scan we were told by the lady that she was almost sure we are having a boy, we have a 3 yr old ds and i was totally convinced this pregnancy is a girl.
    Has anyone been told this at their 12 week scan and it was wrong? Id be happy either way and we find out for sure in 3 weeks im just wondering if anyone got it wrong

    We were told at 13+4 by an experienced gender scan place that we were having a boy- even our friends who saw the scan said boy before I had even told them what the scan guy said. 20 week scan revealed we are actually having a girl.

    me + he = dd1 (July 2007), dd2 (July 2010), dd3 (August 2012), dd4 (due May 2014) + sil (1997)

    Wondering the same thing! At my nt scan last week I was told its 90% a girl. They told me 70% a boy with ds2 at the same ultrasound place and they were correct

    My radiographer said its impossible to tell at 12 weeks and anything would just be a guess. I tend to agree.

    My scan is tomorrow so I hope they can have a guess!

    My cousin told me they said 70% sure it was a boy at her 12 week scan, was confirmed at the 20 week scan.

    I was told that if they get it wrong at 12 weeks it is usually being told boy when it's girl. Apparently it's a bit harder to mistake a girl. Not sure though, sonographers were not allowed to discuss gender at the place I went before the 19 week scan.

    The place I go to has a fairly good success rate with early gender. I viewed ds2's 12 WK DVD and this ones DVD and with ds2 u can clearly see male bits. With this one u can't... but we'll see

    I genuinely am flabbergasted that any scan place would attempt a guess at gender at 12 weeks!

    I think it's almost unethical, and whilst this thread has plenty of right guesses, they remain just that - GUESSES. And when the sonographer has a 50/50 chance of guessing right, then you would need a huge test sample to see if they could actually tell gender correctly, rather than just being lucky guesses. Anything else is just anecdotal.

    I'm sure a lot of expectant parents would understand that it was just a guess and that it might change, but at the same time I think there would be an equal amount that were set on the gender and any change would come as a shock/disappointment.

    We were told girl at 14weeks- though she did say she was only guessing! Turned out to be a boy at the 20w one!
