Baby's gender
Hi
Is a scan at 12.5 weeks more accurate that one at 22.5 weeks to see the sex of the baby? At 12.5 weeks the Dr. said it was a boy, but at 22.5 weeks a different Dr. did the scan and said that it was a girl. Which scan in your opinion is more reliable?
Thanks

The 22 week scan would give a more accurate idea of the sex. 12 weeks is very early to tell as the genitalia are barely formed.
