Hello, I have a question about gender ultrasound. I went to my 25 week appointment and the doctor confirmed me 100% my baby was a girl. He even describe to me the labia parts etc. Suddenly before ending the scan, something made me laugh and the doctor took a pic. where he pointed what looked like a penis. So he suddenly changed his mind and told me that I´m having a boy. The thing is that when I told him to confirm that image for me he couldn´t see the penis again, and that one pic that he took wasn´t inbetween the legs. It is confusing because in the same scan he said 100% girl and then boy. What should I believe?

An ultrasound is never a 100% indicator of gender. I wouldn't do another one just to find out the gender of the baby either. It's expensive and there are some studies that show it's not good for the baby. I would only do an ultrasound if it were medically necessary and I wouldn't rely on it to determine the gender of the baby. You'll know soon enough. In the meantime just buy gender neutral clothing and remember that blue looks good on girls too as long as the style is gender neutral.

Calm down Louise, I didn't say it WAS twins, I said "or maybe it's twins"...anything is possible.

I wouldn't trust it to be 100% sure. Just in case If you want to buy clothes just by 1 or 2 items and wait until bubs is born just in case. It could be a chance it was just the chord or even ask that if people wish to buy gifts wait until bubs is born and then buy stuff. Not only that you can't be sure of the size either. A lot of clothes that my kids got given they didn't even wear because they were too small.

It it not twins! Wait and see when born, this guy is a bit dippy if he can not tell either way with a clear shot between the legs. A little girl has an image of a hamburger and a boy a sausage! I would buy lemon if I were you until the baby is born.

You should wait until the baby is born because there is never a 100% guarantee for gender through ultrasound. Or maybe it's twins...
