I am 19 weeks pregnant, I wa sso sure I was having a boy this pregnancy just felt different, i have two daughters and those pregnancies were identical, this pregnancy was totally different down to the side the baby rested on, I was sure it was a boy, I had a n amnio and it says it is a girl, it is so hard to believe, I am overjoyed that my baby is healthy bur I can't believe it is anothe rgirl have you ever heard of an amnio being wrong.,

 

Hi - November 14

I think the amnio is pretty conclusive, they actually check DNA rather than taking a peek via ultrasound.

I kind of wished mine had been incorrect as well, but given that they have the genetic makeup, particularly in terms of s_x it's 99.9999% percent accurate.

Yes it can be wrong. I have had 2 friends in the past six weeks who have had the opposite of what they were told. You really don't know for sure until they are here!

Alison - Both odf your friends had AMNIOS??? I have never heard of DNA test being wrong about s_x, only ultrasounds.

Well as far as I know they test if it is an xx or xy combo of chromosoms so I would say that it is at least 99% accurate. I know mine was right on the money. *eesh! Where do they find those needles! they are soooooo long*
