  • I have heard of people finding out as early as 14 weeks. Usually they do that ultrasound between 18-23 weeks though. I found out at 17 weeks.

  • 18-22 weeks. You will go in for a big ultrasound around this time.

  • I had both of my boy or girl ultrasounds at 19wk and they were able to tell quickly that they were boys.

  • It's possible to sometimes tell a little earlier, but by 18 to 20 weeks your odds of them getting it right are pretty good.

  • 16 weeks minimum. i found out at 16 and 17 weeks and they were correct both times.

  • I was 12 weeks and 3 days yesterday when I went in for my appointment. I had an ultrasound done, and I now have pic with an arrow pointing to his little peepee and it says BOY!! ^-^ She said she is about 100% sure its a boy but it will be "confirmed" at the 20 wk ultrasound. =] =]

  • They can normally tell around 18 weeks but my doctor wanted me to wait to make sure all the organs were formed so their wouldnt be a confusion.Good luck

  • Your getting so close to finding out! I stayed so excited at this time I would get sick to my stomach about it!
