Nuchal Translucency and sex of baby

Has anyone had a nuchal translucency test?  If so, were they able to tell the sex of your baby??????  We have 3 girls at home,and I'm just wondering what this little baby will be :)
Course I just want it to be healthy, but there is always this little bit of pressure.  I know my husband will love either sex, but what man doesn't want a little boy.

Isn't that an ultrasound to check for down's syndrome.  They do it fairly early, however, I don't think at that point you'll be able to tell the sex of the baby.

It is done between 11-14 weeks,and I have read that from medical journals that at 12 weeks, there is about a 90% correct rate of knowing the sex.  It is done for Down's. It used to be for those 35 and over, but it is now recomended for ALL women.
Thanks!

This test is usually done in between 12-15 weeks I think. I had mine done at 13 weeks and was told that I was probably having a girl but that they couldn't confirm it 100%.  They said it was about an 80% chance.  
Well, I had a girl!!
