Is this even possible?

A friend of mine all of a sudden announced she is pregnant and knows it's a boy at 13 weeks 6 days. I didn't think that was even possible. She says she got a sono today and it clearly shows a boy. Is this possible? If not, could she have gotten some kind of genetic testing like CVS and found out but is too embarassed to admit this? She is older (38).

  • I always thought the sonos said at 20 weeks. The only thing i could think of was that she had the sonogram and it just seemed like a boy to her? Unless there is newfounded equipment or she used that thing that predicts a babys gender real early..i dont know..i didnt think it was possibe either. The baby doesnt really form gender body parts for alittle while yet. Sounds like your friend realyl wants a boy though.

  • I found out the sex of my boy at 14w i believe.. And i took a gender prediction test from rite aid.. And it predicted a girl. So i wouldn't say it was that, some babies just develop faster i guess..

  • It is possible to an extent. When I went in for my ultrasound at 13 weeks I was told 60 percent chance of a girl. At that point their genitals are developing so it can't be a completly accurate reading.

  • And they were correct. I had a girl.

  • I had a us at 13 weeks and my doctor wouldn't look to see because he said they were still developing but when I had the next us at 17 weeks he told me he was 95% sure it was a girl.

  • no, its can only be a guess, at 13 weeks their is only a nub in a few more weeks it will either turn into a penis and testicles or a vagina, but at this point boys and girls look the same. my frined was going by the "nub theroy" and thought the exact same that it was a boy, went out a bought a few boy cloths and all at a latter 20wk ultrasound turns out its a girl!

  • I found out at 19 weeks................I think she's just going off of a guess.

  • I had an early sono too and another at 20 weeks. The gender prediction was the same both times and they were correct on boy
