I had amnio and they told me genders at about 18 weeks.
Drugs and alcohol do not affect test results but they do affect development of the baby. Please use birth control.
My twins are 2.5 months and are not sleeping through the night yet. Their joint best is 4.5 hours so far.

Only an u/s can give you the answer. I bled from 6 weeks till about 16 weeks on and off during my pregnancy and delivered a healthy baby girl. Bleeding in the first trimester is very common. Good luck!

Many ladies in their 40's had their first baby and did great. Since this is your 3rd pregnancy you are at advantage already. Congratulations on your pregnancy and enjoy the expetrience!

The fact that you had 2 kids before without complications is a good sign! Many ladies here had successful pregnancies after 45 although your ob may monitor you more closely this time around. For example, my ob would not let a woman after 40 go beynd 40 weeks. There are graeter risks of placenta failure, etc. These risks are still small though. Good luck!...

Downs is a genetic abnormality and genetic code is already fixed before you start taking progesterone. I took progesterone with both of my pregnancies and had no side-effects. Congrats on your pregnancy!

It's just an u/s where they measure the thickness of nuchal fold and do some other measurements and look for other markers (e.g. the presence of the nasal bone). It's a non-invasive test and lets you see your baby. I absolutely LOVED all my first-look ultrasounds with perinatologust. They also have really cool and advanced u/s equipment. Enjoy!!...

My ob typically does the first u/s at 7 weeks and then another check around 10 weeks. Nuber of u/s and ob appts you get may also depend on your health insurance. Some Kaiser enrollees only get 1 u/s at 15 weeks for example. If you have to chase your ob I would find another one. Vote with your feet!
