QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
Hello - thank you for taking the time to read my question. I hope you can shed some light on just where exactly I am in my pregnancy.

My LMP started on 1/6, average cycle is 31 days. I took a pregnancy test the week of 2/9 which was negative then on 2/18 I took another home pregnancy test and it was positive :).

Telling the Sex of the Baby in Early Pregnancy

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
The ultrasound technician during my supposed 11th week said she thought I was at 13 weeks because of the size of the baby. She also said she thought with 80% certainty that it was a boy.

Can one really tell the sex of the baby during the 11th-13th week of pregnancy? Thanks.

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I have a history of irregular cycles (and diagnosed with PCOS), so using my lmp to date my pregnancy was not an option. My LMP was June 26th, 2008.

I took 3 home pregnancy tests prior to a Dr's appointment.. The first one was 6 weeks after my lmp (August 7th- it came back negative) the second was taken on August 12th (negative) and the third was taken August 24th (it came back positive).
