Post subject: is ultrasound 100% correct?
i'm now 22 week, last week i went for check up and doctor tell me that i'm havin a boy ( coz saw the penis and testical ), but some of my friends tell me that maybe wont 100% correct, when deliver maybe will turn to a girl, is that true ?

yer they can be wrong but usually r rite.
think if youve seen the bits then its a boy.
my mam was told she was having a girl and had a girl with her next one she was told a boy and it was a boy then my sis was told a girl and it was a girl.
i was told 60% that it was a girl becuase she had her legs crossed so they couldnt tell but she was a girl! so i think if they had any doubts they wud let u no like they did wiv me

When i had my scan they were really confident it was a boy and i had to have an amnio and you get a definite answer with that anyway.
I think the reason they say it's not 100% is because people will try and sue them if they get it wrong.
Like Laura said, if the baby has it's legs crossed then it's going to reduce the chances of being 100%.
In this day and age i think the hospitals just want to cover themselves.

yup, this is my first baby, but mostly they told me that if the fetus leg is cross, the percentage of having a boy is 50%-50%, but if have spread the leg and saw the bits then the gender is sure.......
by the way, thanks for all the reply and advice, i've wait for this baby for 3 years and now i got him, i'm very happy .......... yahoo !!!!!!!!!!!!!
