Has anyone been told they were having a boy but have a girl instead?

I went for my 18 week ultrasound yesterday and they told me I was having a boy. I have a 2 year old boy and with his ultrasound it looked different. This baby's "boy parts" look like the umbilical cord... could the u/s tech be wrong?

lol I just had my 2nd ultrasound yesterday and I asked the U/S lady if he was still a boy... She said yep.. but in the first ultrasound it was clear as day for him I mean I saw it before she even said anything about it... I was like omg is that??? and she smiled and said yep...

Now 6 years ago a friend of mine was pregnant the same time I was with my daughter. She has 3 boys and she was told she was getting her girl. Then she went back for another ultrasound (close to due date. After babyshower and everything..) and I guess the U/S said you know what you're having? and of course my friend said yea.... she's like well your lil boy is perfectly healthy... and my friend cried... she had all this stuff from everyone that was ALL pink.... Even the room was painted Pink.... I felt horrible for her...

So what I'm saying is.. They know what they are looking at but even under a trained eye it's still hard to see sometimes.. You might make a mistake.. You won't know until either one the baby is born... or if you have to an ultrasound when you are farther along! Either way.. You still won't know for sure til you push the baby out :) But here's hopeing for ya!! and believe me I have my fingers crossed for myself as well! lol

Just curious if the baby was for sure a boy or did he turn out to be a she? My 2nd daughter we were told boy, then few weeks later a girl. After 4D said girl, we felt sure and sure enough she was a healthy GIRL.

I am getting a 3d ultrasound just to make sure for the second time. I don't want to pick up all new boy stuff and get rid of my daughter stuff and the ultrasound be wrong though I am pretty sure we saw the penis in the ultrasound they show his from under his bum.

Thats the thing... When she went for her first ultrasound and they were 100% sure.... at first... who knows like i said you won't be 100% sure until you give birth to the baby.... Even with my first child they weren't 100% sure.. the woman said... Well If I have to guess I'm going to say girl... However I was only 16 weeks along. But she was right...

I guess so. So I will hold off on my shopping spree until may lol. thank you ladies.

Well they made a DVD of the ultrasound for me and there are a few times where she had the picture between the legs and all of those times i have seen a mini hamburger. The only time i even saw a hint of a penis is when she did the vaginal at the end because the baby had crossed its legs and it looks distinctly like the cord. If not my son's penis connects to his stomach lol. it looks like the umbilical cord is between the baby's legs

A little girl is quite distinctive as they look like mini hamburgers. It is unlikely she is wrong!
