I'm scheduled for my 2nd trimester u/s in a few weeks and plan to find out the sex of the baby if possile. My question is, has anyone been told the sex at this stage and it ended up being wrong? With advancements in testing equipment, I assume they are fairly accurate but I just wondered how common mistakes are these days. Thanks!
Both results where accurate for my babies, however, I asked the sonographer that same question during my last pregnancy, and reluctantly she said she had told a woman she was having a girl at every scheduled u/s up until she delivered...the woman told everyone she knew....well, when she delivered a boy, the woman wasn't too happy..she had already decorated her nursery in a floral pink theme, and had tons of baby girl clothes and items from her baby shower that she had to exchange. Could you imagine? So...it does happen.
