  • It's normally 18-20 but i was told gender can be detected by 4D ultrasouns as early as 14 weeks! or you can always hit up a walgreens and buy a gender detection pee test. lol who knows if those work or not though

  • usually they will do the u/s at 18wks and i did the intelligender * gender detection test* they say it's like 50/50 but it seems mostly right the package says it's 88% correct but i dont know the sex of my baby so i cant tell you if it was right or not lol my baby wont let me see what it is and im 24wks so if your baby will show you, you should know at 18wks GL!

  • It depends when your doctor schedules your big diagnostic ultrasound. It's typically done between 16 and 20 weeks. I had mine at 16 weeks with my son and once he uncrossed his legs we clearly saw he was in fact a boy.

  • around 18-21 weeks, but they still cant always tell it depends on how ur babys possitioned, and if ur baby decides to be stuborn or not lol. when they did my ultra sound they said maybe a girl but they couldnt be sure on that bc my baby was curled up then decided to squirm around alot
