Is it possible to mistake an 18 wk girl sonogram for a boy if there was not a clear shot?

In brief: Of course

We all have stories of sonograms that were not correct.
Most of the time the sonographer is able to determine the sex of the baby, but be prepared. Congratulations!

In brief: Scan predicts well

A prenatal ultrasound scan can predict fairly accurately a baby's gender, but the prediction is not 100% accurate.
One should not think of an incorrect prediction as a mistake, because a prediction is just a prediction. Unless parents have a genetic problem that either affects only boys or only girls, not knowing the gender until birth is very exciting! ultrasounds were not even used until 1960's!
