Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

It's possible, but usually if the boy parts are there you can see them.  Did the doctor tell you that there was a possibilty that it was not a girl?  Healthy is the best thing!  They do make those tests you can get at a drug store that tell you gender as well.  They are supposed to be 98% accurate.  I've never taken one, but it might be fun to compare to your sonogram. 
My mom has a friend that was told she was having a girl all the way up until she had the baby. Then it was a boy. It's possible for them to be wrong but, it's more common for them to be right then wrong. I hope this helps! :)
most of the time they are correct but the best bet is to ask at your next ultrasound which usually happens around 25 weeks
