Mum-to-be Sarah Sharples splashed out £3,000 on pink clothes and accessories for her baby girl - then gave birth to a boy.
In her excitement, the 25-year-old splashed her cash on dresses, toys and nursery furniture, all in the most girlish shade of pink.
She even had a name planned and stencilled "Lily Mae" on the baby's delicately pink bedroom wall. Read the full story here: http://tyneandwear.sky.com/news/arti...then-has-a-boy

Oh my gosh!!! I have just finished prepping for dd and done the same as this lady and I would cringe at the money wasted if baby was a boy haha. At least we still have ds stuff though so we wouldn't be forking out twice!

I have nightmares that this babe will come out with a penis, despite the sonographer being very confident and showing us the girl bits.
I seriously woke up calling out on Monday morning. We have only girls things, after giving all our boys ruff to my cousin. We have no name picked or even thought of as a "just in case" type of action...
And sadly- the stories are all too common!

I wanted to find out with this bub but I was so scared they would say boy and it turns out to be a girl

Oh god this scares me! Every scan I ask again "are you sure it's a girl?" And every time they say yes. If we had a boy now I'd be happy... But he'd be wearing a lot of pink and have a hell of a lot of headbands.

oh dear... could be worse though. At least she came home with a baby. A lot of people go to all that trouble for baby and bring home no baby at all.

My 21 w scan guy was doubtful... So at 25w when I had a 3D I asked them to check...
On 50inch tv he was unmistakably a boy... I still got it checked every up scan as I had fears of this (and still hopes for a girl)

I had a little melt down at about 32 weeks after having been told it was a girl at 20 weeks. I was putting girl clothes into drawers and putting away boy clothes and I suddenly thought "if that scan was wrong my dh is hopeless, I can't trust him to organise and find boy clothes while I'm in the hospital"! Plus I was having a cs so didn't fancy trying to pull clothes out from under the bed post op! So, I booked in for a 'gender scan' to be told girl again! But pregnancy hormones were making me a little crazy and I felt I needed to!! If that had been wrong too oh well, but it was right!
