  • I found that I was having a boy at 13 weeks. The tech told me she was about 80% sure and she was right!

  • it kinda depends on the women and of course how the baby is laying in the belly. im a big woman and had some more fat on my belly so it was hard to see it that early. and then our DD was always hiding it. haha.

    i had an ultrasound every week and finally at around 28weeks or so she was 80% sure that it was a girl and i said to my husband: "80% is more than enough, lets get the princess furniture"... thank god the OB was right :D

  • a women in my august group says that her dr is already telling her he is positive its a boy and she is only 10 weeks, but she had a 4d u/s done. I kinda think 10 weeks is way to early to be sure, but I have never had a 4d done before either.

  • I found out at 12 weeks with each of my three. I had nuchal's with each of them...they took a look to see what they could see. Let me tell you...there was NO mistaking it!!!

    However, I was still told "it's a little early so don't paint the room blue just yet".


    Yes, right each time.
