  • I think that might be too soon. I had one at 13 weeks too, and they didn't even look. I didn't find out until 20 weeks.

  • My drs office did the ultrasounds between 20-22 weeks to tell you the sex :).

  • I've heard of people being told that early, but thye say it's pretty inacurate until around 20 weeks. I was 19 weeks and 3 days :-)

  • You might be able at 13weeks the baby has to be in the right place though.Thats what I heard from a girl on here.But most of the time you have to be a few more weeks.

  • I had an ultrasound at 14 weeks 6 days and they still couldn't tell. But a friend of mine that went to the same hospital found out at 15 weeks. So it really just depends.
