Same answer: The answer is the same as the previous version of this question. Sometimes it is possible to see gender this early and sometimes not. It depends on the skill of the sonographer, the quality of the machine and the position of the baby. Often with early sonograms the recommendation is to repeat it later on when the genitalia can be seen easier.

Yes, fairly accurate: The margin of error on a dating scan at 13 weeks is approximately 7 days.
