I'm 4 weeks pregnant when do they do the ultra sound to see what the baby is?

My husband might be leaving in the 5 month of my pregnany and i was wondering if anyone knew when they normally do the ultra sound to see what the baby is we would both like to know before he leaves.

  • weeks vs months

    The timeline is like this:
    Month 1 = Weeks 1-4
    Month 2 = Weeks 5-8
    Month 3 = Weeks 9-13
    Month 4 = Weeks 14-17
    Month 5 = Weeks 18-21
    Month 6 = Weeks 22-26
    Month 7 = Weeks 27-30
    Month 8 = Weeks 31-35
    Month 9 = Weeks 36-40

  • You can usually determine sex at about 16 weeks. About the same time you get all the labs done.
