  • No i found out at 16 weeks it was a reaaly small penis though, most dr wait til 20 weeks bc then its fully deveolped and they can see it better but i had to go in once a month for an ultrasound due to complactions and at 16 weeks they knew it was a boy.

  • no its not to early i found out when i was 16weeks along that i was having a boy The earliest a doctor will have a radiologist determine gender is about 12 weeks. Most wait until week 16 through week 20. Determining gender by radiology is not an exact science. A fetus could be in a position where it is difficult to see the genitals. Your radiologist may attempt to coax the fetus into another position where it is more visible. You could also consume something containing sugar, such as juice, (no caffeine!) which will make the fetus somewhat more active. Amniocentesis, if you must have one completed, is fool-proof in determining gender of the fetus through chromosomal testing.

  • It's possible - just depends on how much of a showbird your baby is. :]
    Generally they wait until about 20 weeks - it's more "defined" then.

  • You probably won't get to know at this ultrasound, but you will know soon enough and you have PLENTY of time to buy things, seriously, do price shopping until you know the colors you are going to be going for and check online at amazon, ebay, craigslist and the goodwill for cheaper stuff.

  • There is a chance if the baby shows its money shot-but remember at this point almost all babies are little girls still LOL, so if she clearly see's a boy, chances are its right, if she doesnt clearly see a boy, she won't say what the baby is yet...
