Yes will you sue the hospital for getting the gender of your baby wrong after an ultrasound scan?? I personaly will NOT as nothing is certain until your baby is born. And an ultrasound scan is only maybe as much as 90% acurate. So If I was told that my baby is going to be a boy I will not believe it 100% to avoid dissapointment. And I only going to buy items with natural colour ... So please tell what is your opinion on this and what do you thinK of a couple who sue a hospital for that reason..???

There is no reason to sue an hospital cause everyone makes mistakes and they are a part of our life's.

I would not sue a hospital for not getting the gender of the child wrong. I think if they did make a mistake, it was an honest mistake and not completely their fault. I do not think people should go out and buy baby things right away or buy items with colors that go with a particular gender. People probably should get something that is suitable for boys and girls. I think it is crazy for people to sue for this reason but I am sure that there are people who would do it since we seem to be a sue happy country these days.

Yes there is people who's done that, and that's why the hospital would tell me what the gender of my baby would be. It was written all over the place in the waiting room. Please don't ask the gender of your baby... Thank you for your response...xx

No, I wouldn't sue the hospital. I think they try to make you aware that it isn't 100% accurate. I was originally told my oldest was the opposite gender, but fortunately they realised their mistake before the scan was completed. With my youngest I had so many scans there was no way they could have made a mistake on that many occassions. They did get his projected birth weight VERY wrong, and cause a great deal of unnecesary worry, but still I wouldn't sue. I think some people are far too quick to do so.
