Yes, that's true I suppose. It just so happens that at every US from week 15 on (had 2 at 15w, 1 at 16w, 17w, 19w, 21w, etc) every US tech said the same thing (and I didn't tel them anything first). Just reporting a personal experience.

ETA: As I mentioned, I didn't find out the gender with baby#1 or #2. I opted to find out with this pregnancy because there was a very real chance that I would be finding out the gender of my child not at the birth but rather during a 2nd tri miscarriage. With that possibility looming, I just didn't want to find out the gender when I lost my child, so I found out when I knew that the heart was still beating....I'm not an advocate of unnecessary USs, and finding out gender is a personal decision, but sometimes we forget that a healthy live birth is a gift not a guarantee.

12 weeks is usually too early to determine the sex. The 15-week would be more reliable. Of course, there is always a chance the 15-week is not accurate. Sometimes people are told one thing and then the baby is born and it's not what they were expecting.
