Almost nil: You are too old to grow more now. Your height is based on genetics and a lifetime of proper nutrition and exercise.

Yes: All eggs contain only x chromosomes. About half the sperms have x chromosomes ; half have a y chromsome instead.

Are baby gender ultrasounds accurate? Is there any chance that an ultrasound showing my baby's gender is wrong? I'd hate to completely prepare for a b?
Depends on variables: I would never decorate my nursery based on a baby gender ultrasound. Those done around 20 weeks are likely to be accurate in the hands of a skilled technician, but the boy parts must decide to show themselves or they may be overlooked.I've heard of more moms being surprised by boys than girls. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
