  • I was told they can sometimes tell at 16 weeks. But they didn't schedule me till 20 weeks. And I found out that day.

  • they normally do one 18-20 weeks, it would be very hard to tell earlier but not impossible. My sister is 15weeks and just had an ultrasound and they couldn't tell.

  • 12 weeks is way to early lol. the soonest is about 18wks. docs normaly like to wait until about 20wks though, that way they can know for sure, cuz some boys don't "drop" until 20 weeks, some don't until later. going and getting the ultra sound at that time isn't only just to find out the sex, they have to take pics of the baby to make sure they're organs and everything are forming right.

  • Sometimes they can tell as early as 14 weeks, atleast down in Florida. They checked me pretty early and told me they would check to sex but they might not see it yet, and sure enough they saw a girl and she was definitely a little girl!

  • It all depends also on the position of the baby but usually 18-22 months. When I went at 19 months they said 90% chance a girl. At 24 weeks it was a boy!

  • It just depends on the coropration of the baby, like how he is positioned. But i found out when i was 16 weeks. It was very obvious that it was a boy!
