    Default 12 week scan

    So I had my scan yesterday and she said its a boy.

    Can they really tell that early?

    Anyone been given a 12 week sex and had it be something different at 20?

    I don't think they can tell that early.

    It is too early to say what the sex is. You can get an indication from the nub but you can't say for sure so I would take the guess with a grain of salt.

    Default 12 week scan

    I guess there is a 50% chance they are right! Your 20 week scan will be about 90% accurate for the gender.

    This for sure The wait can be so frustrating but it can be 50/50 so can be right but can also be very wrong.

    Yes! We were told a boy at not quite 12 weeks (I put no faith what so ever in this) and at a 29 week ultrasound discovered we are having a beautiful baby girl by a very confident sonographer
