Is it possible for an ultrasound to be wrong about the baby or the way the doctor explains it could be wrong?

If a doctor gives a pregnant girl or woman an ultrasound and says "ma'am you're going to have a girl." Is it possible the doctor could be wrong about the unborn baby girl and its actually not a girl?

    It's possible but also unlikely.  95% -- or more -- of the time, the verdict on the baby's sex is correct.

    Its possible but when they look at the scan the see white lines in the pelvis area, 2 lines for a boy and 3 for a girl because of the way our pelvis is shaped.

    Sounds like it's either a girl, or your boy got a small pecker

    Yes it is possible. 

    An ultrasound can be between 95 to 99 percent accurate in determining sex, depending on when it's done, how skilled the sonographer is and whether baby is in a position that shows the area between their legs. Mistakes can also be made.
