So they have this place called baby miracles in Moreno valley ca, where I live and they will tell you the gender as early as 14 weeks with a cost of 40$. So u i went right when I turned 14 weeks , it turns out the tech says I'm 13 weeks 4days. She said since they have never been wrong and want to continue to keep their good record / reputation that she has to bring me back , she asked me and my bf if we wanted to know what she thought (of course we did) she said "Total boy" she showed us a potty shot and me and my bf both saw somewhat of a buldge between the legs . I go back on Friday to get a more reliable answer but here's the thing...
I was sooooo sure it was a girl; mothers intuition, in 2 of my previous ultrasounds there was clearly the "three lines that girls are known to have, on top of that throught my whole pregnancy ive had severe morning sickness.. Someone give me an opinion .

You might struggle to get replies as this is an Australian site, so most members are in Australia :-)
FWIW, most places won't do gender scans here before 16 weeks as boys and girls can still look very similar (even with a bulge between the legs I believe).
Also, I was like you and swore that we were having a girl. 4 ultrasounds have very much confirmed a boy! ( first one was as 17.5 weeks though...)

Are you asking whether to listen to your intuition or the scan?
Both can be wrong... scans probably have a better success rate though...

I "knew" DS was a girl. He wasn't
I "knew" this one was a boy. She isn't.
"Mothers instinct" isn't always correct.

I was sure I was having a boy. My whole family were. I had no morning sickness at all. And it's a girl.
I don't think any of those wives tales are accurate in predicting gender.
