    Question 80% Chance

    Just got back from my secons attempt at my 18-20 week scan and the lady told me that there is an 80% chance i'm having a little Girl



    I'm so excited as i have a 3 y/o son but is an 80% chance a good enough to rely on???

    A GF of mine was told when we both has our first (3 years ago) 80% chance of a boy and she has a baby girl... I'm completely over the moon and although it wouldnt matter would hate to go out and buy all pink (as i have blue from my first) just to give birth to a boy...

    SO my question is would any of you take this "80% chance" as good enough and begin to buy pink????

    The lady at our U/S gave us a 90% chance of a girl but I would take anything 80% & over as a red light to buy girl things...

    Have fun!!

    A friend of mine was told at her 18week scan she was expecting a girl (not sure what her % of chance was, i think the dr said definate)
    They picked out a name and bought a few pink things, but my friend had a gut feeling they were wrong... she had another scan at 27 weeks, and boom it was 110% sure it was a......

    BOY!!!

    hmm I would wait but maybe buy one little thing! LOL so exciting! It's annoying they can't give you 100% though there the stories out there of them still getting it wrong! Fingers crossed for you!

    Thanks everyone.... The first attempt she said if i had to guess i'd gay girl now today it was 80% chance.... i'd like to have the 4d scan done but the recommend it to be done at 30-32 weeks so its a while off....

    Mite just pick up a few little things but keep them mainly neutral..

    Thanks for the help

    There's someone on BB that was told it was a girl earlier on and now with only a couple of weeks to go she's been told it's a boy so I wouldn't trust 80% odds.

    I have been told twice now by two scans Im having a girl.
    They even gave me a picture of it on my last scan saying Girl
    but said they could only give me 80% aswell cause its law or something??
    I do also know another BB member who was told at HER 18wks it was a boy
    then two wks later by another scan was told girl.
    Then one week ago was told its a BOY!!!
    iM GOING FOR ANOTHER SCAN IN 2WKS
    to triple check

    Thanks everyone...

    Mumof5.... just wondering how do you go about booking another scan??? the place i go needs a referal i think and they need to know what the US is for and i was told that the 18-20 week US was the last scheduled scan???? can you just request another US just to check gender???

    You can just ask your doctor for another ref.
    I just said I wanted to check on the gender again
    and to get the the good 4D shots.
    I did have to pay $75 dollars tho at
    Sydney pregnancy and womans ultrasound at windsor.
    Not sure where you live but for me its worth the half hour
    trip. Ask for a pic of the sex i did and they labled it (GIRL).
    wELL WORTH IT. Im going again next week to triple check.

    I was told that the standard accuracy rate of ultrasounds in determining baby's gender was 80%. I wonder if it's more than that though. I was told I was having a girl and I did. *shrug* I bought pink after the 18-20wk ultrasound :P

    From what i've heard bout 80% (hehe) of US predictions are correct but there are still a few that are wrong.... The lady told me for girls they look for a line which is the Libia (spl) and for boys they check between the legs for ...as she put it "anything hanging"...hehehe

    The issue with mine was she say a deffinate line but bubs has legs crossed at ankles fo the gap between the legs was minimal...thats why she couldnt give me a more accurate %... i think its more to cover their butts... but am talking with DP he want me to get another US but i'm thinking might be best to just have the 4D scan if we have to pay at least we'll know for sure...(just hope when we go that bubs legs arent closed
