In brief: Maybe,maybe not

The equipment may be formed by 12.
5 wks but most will not stake their reputation on a reading that early, confirmation around 18-20 wks would be nice. In any case, if the equipment doesn't come out to be found, it can be missed .I've had parents paint the nursery for a girl based on us & get a surprise at delivery.

In brief: BABY GENDER

It is more accurate when the ultrasound is done after first trimester. If OB said its a boy they are more or less sure of the gender otherwise they will tell you to wait for a repeat ultrasound.
