Just be mindful that it may not be correct. There's a lady here that just had her baby. She was told it was a boy and ended up being a girl.
Yes they can let you know what they think it is but they can still make mistakes.
Saying that I didn't/couldn't find out with my first as he was laying belly up to the placenta and hiding his bits. My 2nd spun around each time and flashed us so we knew he was a boy and proud of it. My 3rd it took a couple of goes to see but we weren't told 100%. We knew it was a girl though and were right.

I think its good if you knew what you have because its very easy to shopping for little one I did this experience with my son when we were waiting for him and then very easy to chose the things for him .....best wishes for you and your little one.....xxxxx

I found out with all 3 of my kids. I LIKED finding out.
With all 3, I had both male and female names picked out, just in case. But I didn't have the extra cash to go and blow on different sex items (clothes specifically).
I feel like finding out early helped me bond a bit more with the babies. I could call them by their name, even before they were born. In the case of my last 2 pregnancies, I could say to the older one/s *this is you're brother/sister in here* (I have boy-girl-boy :P)

Some people prefer to know, some like the surprise. Really, it's up to you. I would say find out and just not tell your mom. That way you know, and she's surprised :P
