  • I found out my sons was a boy at 15 weeks... he was flaunting himself all over. It is possible- but don't get your hopes up for it

  • its possible. but most women wont get to know for sure until later on in pregnancy.

    always depends on if the baby is "showing" or not. it also depends on the mommy-to-be. i always had a lot of belly fat, so it wasnt that easy to see until i was 25 weeks. and our little munchkin didnt want to show what she was before that ;)

  • I could tell at 14 weeks but the tech wouldn't say

  • According to this link you can  but I was always told it's better between 18-24 weeks.

  • I was told at 12 weeks and it was correct with all three of my children. It's really dependent upon the technician and whether they are awesomely skilled.

    I personally didn't believe it myself until I saw the 'goods' in ultrasound photos that were ultra clear.

    With my daughter, because I waited so long for her --- I simply couldn't believe it no matter how many times anyone told me ---until she was born.

  • They confirmed my daughter was a girl at our u/s at 18 weeks. Like the pp I couldn't believe it because I had waited so long for a girl. They made a video of it for me and I would pull that thing out once a week through the whole pregnancy just to reassure myself that really was a girl in there.

    Good luck!

  • it is very rare to be able to tell. its so earlly in developement.. most of the tiem drs will do anouther ulta sound at 22 weeks (or right around there) i had multipal u.s. with all and even with my second they could never tell cause she was always turned the wrong way.

  • I was one of the lucky ones who was able to tell at barely 12 weeks. First off I am TINY and was losing weight like mad. They needed to check a few medical things which is why I had a vaginal ultrasound done. My husband and I were AMAZED at how clearly we could see him! He was moving around and we both could tell it was a boy though the tech said we couldn't be certain simply because of how early it was. But we SAW it and we KNEW. After the vaginal ultrasound they then did a topical one (which is the normal one to have where they view the child from your belly). I couldn't even tell that there was a child in there. It was soo unclear and like all the ultrasound pictures I had seen before. I wouldn't expect to know unless they did a vaginal ultrasound that early and if you are lucky enough to have your child flaunt it for you, plus telling it's a boy is easier than telling it's a girl. Chances are low but it can happen
