  • it can be more difficult for a plus size woman because the soundwaves have to penetrate more fat, for a thinner woman it can be seen earlier. I was 20wks when i found out i was having a boy.

  • I dont wana scare you but I just had mine done at 18 weeks and the baby wasnt active so we couldnt tell the sex...but with our first we found out he was a boy at 18 weeks to the day and had no prob...each baby and preg is different...
