  • Proabably so, but my dr.'s office wouldn't do the gender ultrasound till 20 weeks, just to make sure they were accurate! Good Luck!

  • It is far enough along, but they may hold off the ultrasound for a few more weeks. That ultrasound is typically done between 18-22weeks.

  • Most likely if you have an u/s. I had one at 16 weeks and they could tell.

  • hey ! we are real close together!!! next wed I will be 17 weeks and two days, I get an ultrasound every four weeks because of a procedure I had- my cervix could possibly get too thin too early so the give me extra ultrasounds to make sure my cervix is long enough to keep in the little acrobat.

    anyway to answer your question my doc said chances are this will be the one where i can see gender (crossing my fingers for a boy)
