Sorry about that posting. Somehow hit enter lol

Anyway, I went to a high risk doctor today to have the genetic screening for Downs Syndrome and all that. I was suppose to be 12 weeks 4 days but they said I am now measuring at 13 weeks 1 day but of course not enough to change my due date. Anyway, the ultrasound tech said that at this stage you can tell what the sex is because if its a boy the parts are sticking straight up and if its a girl they stick straight out. Well, according to the ultrasound it says I'm having a boy but I want to know how accurate that is. Should I go with it or should I just wait until my 20 week scan to know for sure? TIA ladies! I don't want to keep my hopes up but after 3 boys it would be nice to finally get a girl.

I was told at 12w 4d that I was having a boy and it was confirmed at 18w 4d, but I wouldn't go out and buy stuff yet. I would wait and have it confirmed at your 20w ultrasound!
