How soon can a sonogram see if it's a boy or girl?

I'm 17 weeks and 2 days pregnant. My midwife said I could schedule my sonogram soon if I want one. How soon can they tell if it's a boy or girl?

  • Theyll know if because they can see what parts a baby has. So if your child is a boy itll have a penis if its not itll have a vagina.

  • I would wait until after 20 weeks, IMO. We went at 18 weeks and we were told 90% a girl. At 24 weeks it was definitely a boy. It's more accurate if you wait a bit, but a lot of people get them done at 18 weeks and it ends up right.

  • Since I'm pregnant I'm fully aware of what parts a male and female have. I just want to know when I can find out.

  • I had my ultrasound done at 21 weeks. but I was told that if you get an amniocentesis that they can tell as early as 10 weeks.
