How accurate are ultrasounds?
DH and I are expecting our first child, due in February. Last week we went to the hospital for an ultrasound. The baby was very wiggly and the ultrasound tech had a really hard time getting any shot of the genetalia. The only shot she could get was from below the feet, but it still wasn't very clear. At the end, she said it appeared that we're having a girl. Any ideas on how accurate this is? I don't care either way, but I really would like to know. They detected a minor problem with my placenta so I will have to go for another ultrasound and maybe then we'll get a more definitive view, but I was just curious about what you all think on the subject.
