Gender mix up

I had my 21 weeks scan yesyerday. Baby was in an extremely difficult position that Sonographer couldn't identify the gender. Told me to empty my bladder. After emptying my bladder I had my second scan to find out the gender and it was a quick one. Finished within minute leaving me in doubt.
I was told I'm having another pretty princess.
I was wondering if anyone went through the gender mix up by telling them they are having boy/girl and then they ended up giving birth to the opposite gender?
Before I start filling up my wardrobe with girlie clothes, do you think I should ask to confirm the sex of the baby in my next scan or just accept that the Sonographer can't go wrong as she is one of the experienced one.

If it's a girl, you can see the three lines, if it's a boy you can see their balls.

Had all three of my pregnancies gender reveal done 16-18 weeks & they haven't been wrong yet! Lol best of luck: -)

I never knew about the three lines thing. I was never told. Learning something new everytime. I did search Google how to tell if you are having a boy/girl. All I got was old wives tell.
Ohh yeah the three lines is actually their,  well you know Lol. So if you peak at your ultrasound & see 3 lines or balls, you'll be able to tell your self
I'll keep an eye on my scan monitor. Thanks fir the info x

Ill never forget my son was laying with his legs over his head he wanted us to stop calling him a girl lol since hubby and i said girl from day 1 since we have a boy already. We still had to go back though because they couldnt measure everything since he was folded in half lol. Baby ##3 better be a girl this time!

Lol! My baby was in a very difficult position that the sonographer couldn't check for spine. I had to empty my bladder to check for spine and gender. I was given another appt for spine check. Let's see how it goes.
