  • at about 18-20 weeks your doctor will give you an ultrasound and you can ask the tech what the gender is.

  • the only way to be fairly sure is an ultrasound.
    there are old wives tales, but those are not correct as often as ultrasounds.

  • Yes, ultrasound.

    For some fun old wives tales, if you are carrying roundish, then a girl, but if you stick out a lot, then a boy. The other one I know is to tie a ring on a string, and hold it over your belly. If it swings sideways its a boy, if in a circle its a girl. But I wouldn't go out and furnish a nursery based on either of these methods. :)

  • My Mom did the drano test. lol. You get Drano crystals, pee in a cup and add a teaspoon of the drano crystals. It will turn orangish pink for a girl, and greenish blue for a boy. There is actually a reason for the colors being different, like the ph or something. It worked for my mom, it wascorrect on all three kids. I never did try it though.

  • All the old wives tales and myths were telling me that I was having a boy- the height I carried at, the position the baby was always in, etc. The 19th week my ultrasound said it was a girl. Ultrasound is the way to go.

  • Ultrasound , and even thats not 100%... I know its easier to say when you aren't in the situation, but let that be a surprise for you. I didn't, but I couldn't find out anyways. I got 12 USDs and they couldn't tell for sure. I liked not knowing. It was really special.

  • Ultrasounds are fairly but not 100% accurate. And I believe that doing an amnio would also tell you because they pull fluid and do genetic testing. The only time I found out (had 2 wait and find outs) was w/my last and the "outside" plumbing was quite evident.
