  • They usually cant tell till you are about 20 wks. But my friend was able to find out when she was about 15 wks. So it depends. You can ask them to check and see if they can tell yet =)

  • 20 weeks I think it is so you got a little longer to wait I think.

  • not even close at 6 weeks sorry. I had a 6 week ultrasound and all you could see was like a little bean lol. you'll have to wait until your about 16 weeks.

  • wow PP, if you read the question...she IS SIXTEEN weeks not SIX. i hate it when people don't read the question before they answer. and OP they will probably have you wait til your next appt to find out the sex. I was in the same situation as you and thought they might tell me sooner but they made me wait til the next appt.

  • wow anon why dont you quit being a wench and realize people make mistakes. my goodness. yeah, hide behind the anon button.
    well i still answered the question did I not? I said you wouldn't be able to tell until your around 16 weeks- as long as you got the answer.

    Why do people have to be rude? So what if I didn't read the entire question thoroughly.. I wasn't rude AT ALL and the question still got answered.

  • lol amy, if you think i was being rude by what I said to are a little too sensitive. get over it sweetie. and i ALWAYS post anonymously and I'm only "rude" when people say something stupid. :D have a good day.

    and before you get the chance to be a smart...butt about it, i don't post anonymously so i can be a "wench" i post anonymously because I don't want everyone and their sister viewing my profile, and yes i realize i can set it to private.

    i'll one up you every time so don't bother replying. and take some literacy classes.

  • I found out at 12 weeks, but there was NO doubting they were boys!! LOL

    There's a chance they can tell, but don't paint the room just yet!

    There can still be mistakes with ultrasounds. You won't have a 100% guess until the baby is out! LOL

  • They wouldn't even give me a guess until I was 21 weeks :( I had an ultrasound at 16 weeks because I was looking risky for miscarriage and I asked if they could tell and they said "Yes, but at this stage we could easily make a mistake," I begged them to tell me and they wouldn't! So I had to wait lol it was horrible. Longest part of the pregnancy so far.

  • No I just hate bitchy women on this site, who don't make sense in their responses, and grows balls on the internet.

    Good job! Now enjoy the rest of your day anon.
