  • 18 weeks but to know for sure you would have to wait until baby is born

  • The earliest they will tell you is about 16 weeks, but I would not trust that! My aunt went for an u/s at 17 weeks and was told she was having a girl. When she was about 25 weeks she went to L&D with some complications and they did an u/s to check out what was going on and they said "your little boy looks perfect," she'd already gotten soooo much girl stuff and had started decorating the nursery pink. I found out at 21 weeks. If I were you, I'd wait as long as possible. It's hard but it's not worth making the mistake. Wouldn't you rather wait and find out for sure?

  • I found out at 19 weeks and the doctor and the ultrasound tech said that it;s a boy FOR SURE, no doubts about it. She said it was rare that they could be so positive about it, but that's it's positively a boy. He had his little legs spread as wide as could be, and we got an upward views (as if he was sitting on a glass tabletop and we were looking up from underneath) and you could see his penis and testicles so clearly is was crazy, lol.

  • there is some sort of test online. you recieve a kit and i do not remember whether is was blood or urine and you send it back and they send you the results. it was pretty early on in the pregnancy that you could find out. i was going to do it but i procrastinated and i had the ultrasound to find out in a few more weeks. the test was a little pricey. i do not remember how much exaclty, maybe 150-300. not sure. the test detects the sex hormone??

  • The development has completed enough to know for sure is 20 weeks, maybe just maybe early as 16 weeks. I know it's hard to wait. Hang in there!
