good luck for the scan.

they say if you are told a boy it is 99.9% right but they can only be 50% certain with a girl.

Im sure someone on here was told they were having a girl but had a son ( I can't remember who though)

If you're not certain you could just buy the basics for now and get them in whites and yellows, then once the baby is born go out and get a few bits in other colours. Chances are they will be able to tell you anyway

HI there

Bet you are bursting too find out!!!

All my friends who had had girls or boys have all been correct. They cover themselves by saying 90%

If you pay £40 for a private scan with life scan the picture is so clear you would be 99% sure.

BUt i am sure you will see. They live in baby grows mainly to start with anyway. Go for whites, cream and yellows if you want to be safe.

Ah enjoy its a fab feeling

My hospital would not tell you unless they were 90% or more certain of the sex. For boys it is easier apparently but they said for girls they have to see the labia before they can say for certain. If they are unsure, they will not tell you.

When I had my 20 week scan, I was told a girl and could see what they were looking at. However, I played ignorant and asked at the end once again how they could tell it was a girl and the sonographer went back and showed me exactly Very happy

Let's hope it's right as I've gone for the pinks and we've named her already. We have NO names for a boy Embarassed Mind you, I'm sure a little boy won't mind pink to start with Baby LOL

My mumm was tld with my younger sister that she was having a boy - which they named Kyle - but when bubs entered the world it was a pink baby which they then named Kylie!

Nursery was re-painted pink from blue - but that was 20 years ago!!!

Bare in mind this is very rare AND they cannot always see the sex.

But i hope you get the result you want!!!

they got it right with me they told me that i was having a girl and she showed me how they tell she pointed out that there was 3 lines which is 95% chance positive i was having a girl..

my friends sister in australia however when she was pregnant was told she was having a girl and when the baby was born it was actually a boy.

what id done was i got girls clothes but i also got a blue outfit and i took a mixture of pink and neutral coloured sleepsuits into hospital with me just in case.
