  • Pretty good. We found out at 17 weeks and again at 20

  • They are pretty good if the baby is cooperative and wants to show what he/she is. Good luck and congrats.

  • Very likely....I know at my 12 week they said 80% sure it was a boy, sure enough it was! I think they can tell at that point. Hope the bugger isn't stubborn and lets you know!

  • If it a boy you might be able to tell. There third leg is kinda easy to spot but if they tell you its a girl go back a few weeks later before you go crazy buying pink. This has been so much recently with my friends!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • You should be able to find out at 17 weeks pretty accurately if the baby is cooperating.

    Before 14 weeks all babies look basically the same so it's very common to be told boy that early by an inexperienced tech and find out it's a girl at 20 weeks. The only difference is the angle of the "nub" before 14 weeks.

    Interesting site, especially the info at the bottom:
