I am 15 wks and getting a sonogram today. Do you think they will be able to tell if the baby is a boy or girl?

  • Nope. I had one about 12 weeks, and they can't tell that early. I'm about 20 or 21 weeks and they're doing an ultrasound in a few days and they'll know then.

  • Fifteen weeks is early. If it is a boy it might be visible.

  • Even at a later week, if the babyhas it's back turned outward, you might not be able to see anything. I refused to get off the table untill the baby turned. I even used an ice back on my belly to get him to turn over! It wsnt there for hours Just a few minutes to make him move.

  • I found out I was having a boy when I was about 16 weeks along. I got lucky cuz he spread his legs so we could see.

  • If it is a boy, they n=might be able to tell if he's in the right position. I was 15 weeks with my second birth and they were able to tell. I was really shocked when they asked me if I wanted to know. Wasn't able to tell with my daughter until 21 weeks though
