when can gender be determined?

I am 13w4day and am going to the doctors soon hopefully for the special moment when I can know the sex. When can or did you find out what it is? Do you think I might be able to find out if the baby is in the right position??

Thank so much!!

  • I was 22 wks when I found out. I hear they can tell from 20 wks but I've heard so many different things from so many different people! But if this is your first ultrasound (mine was at 13 wks) they can't tell the sex.

    Congrats on baby! You will find out soon, i know it's a LONG wait :)

  • ^ so many different things from so many different people! she has had experience so I would say during your 16-22 wk ultrasound you will find out!

  • The sex can be determined at 15wks, but most docs do it after 20wks for the ultrasound. It's eaier to see and they also check out other parts of the bodie's developement.

  • Its 15 weeks. But they do it at your 20 week ultrasound with all the measurements. But keep in mind I didn't find out till the 30 week because the baby wouldn't open her legs. So it s hard to sa) when they can tell you for sure. But remember healthy. That's what helped my disappointment. Good luck let me know what gender it turns out.

  • I found out all three times at 12 weeks with 75% certainty...then confirmed at 20 weeks.

  • It depends. By ultrasound, they can usually be reasonably accurate by about 20 weeks
