I know that it's not 100% sure until your baby is actually born, but what percentage is an 18 week sonogram accurate? Surely it should be pretty accurate at 18 weeks right?
Was anyone told they were have a certain gender and the baby came out the wrong gender?
I get my sonogram at 18 weeks and my dr seems pretty confident that he's going to be able to tell me the correct gender at that appointment.

If you really want a positive on what the gender of your baby is before he/she is born get a 4d done. You cant miss it on that.

It happened to my best friend, they went in for their gender ultrasound and the doctor told them that they were having a girl. They were so excited and bought all babygirl stuff, even had the room all decked out in pink and white. The day the baby was born, it was actually a boy. They were so pissed off. So most of the time its correct, but mistakes happen. Another friend of mine was told they were having a girl and then they had another ultrasound and now she is having a boy. Thank goodness they had another ultrasound just to make sure.

When can you get a 4D done? What's the difference of a 3D and a 4D?

Its the same. The 3d is just still shots and 4d is the video.

I am so scared this will happen to me, and with being high risk i had plenty of ultra sounds i would ask everytime, my little boy is still a boy right well after the last 4d ultra sound and being able to leave the high risk doctor without another appt i was told if he hasnt changed yet he wont he is 100 percent boy, but i had 4 ultrasounds through my regular doctor and 6 through high risk doctor and 2 in the emergency room. so I dont know, but i knew from 16 weeks before we were told that he was my little boy.
