accuracy of ultrasound prediction at 30th week

Hi !  I am 31 weeks pregnant.  I had my ultrasound last week (30th week ),  I ask him about baby's gender so that I can shop for the baby.  He show me the three lines and said its a baby girl.  This is my second baby (and last ).  I have my four year old doughter.  Though I have started shopping for a girl but still I am little bit confused on accuracy of these predictions.  My husband want a girl and I  want a boy this time because I always want one boy & one girl in my family.  Please tell me if the ultrasound prediction is always 100% correct at this stage?

It could be true that you are having a girl but you can always request or go to a doctor where they have those 3D sonograms. Those type of sonograms are cool because you can actually see how your baby looks. A friend of mine had one and I was so amazed at how clear you can see the baby.

You are more than likely having a girl.

they say that ultrasounds arent as accurate in the later stages of pregnancy. but i think that is when they are trying to narrow down the duedate. i would think that it would be a clearer picture of the genitals and baby in general when you are further along cuz baby is bigger. i would say that you are most likely having a girl.... but regular ultrasounds are never 100%. if you really want to know, i would suggest getting a 3d ultrasound done. good luck
