26 week ultrasound?

How accurate is a first ultrasound at 26 weeks about when you got pregnant?
Also what can an ultrasound tell you and your doctors about the pregnancy?

U/s in the 1st trimester are most accurate..any done,after that they are not b/c babies grow different..

I would say a 20 week ultrasound is accurate. It can tell you the placenta's positions, baby's sex, baby's development, and about the amniotic fluid.

I heard it wasnt accurate because babys grow at different rates by then.
