The date of conception can't actually be determined, but the fetal growth usually reflects how far along the mother to be is , so i believe an ultrasound is pretty accurate.

It depends when in the pregnancy it is done. The earlier in pregnancy the more accurate it is. So at 7 weeks it is only going to be inaccurate by 3 or 4 days.

If you have your first U/s at 8 months it is not nearly as accurate as babies vary so much in size.

An ultrasound tech will look for a penis or testicles when checking an ultrasound scan for a body. These parts of the anatomy make themselves very apparent on a scan in males.

Ultrasound scan requirements vary depending on the type of ultrasound. For example, for a pregnancy ultrasound, the woman is expected to drink 4 glasses of water and not relieve her bladder for an hour before the scan.
