Ultrasound question

How many weeks can they do an outside the stomach ultrasound instead on the trans-vag? Also how early can you see sex of the baby? I know I should know this but I am coming up blank. Thanks

  • Definitely tummy one at 14-15. I had my first tummy at about 9 weeks and was able to see baby very clearly. Gender might be a little harder at that point. They might be able to give you an idea but I don't think it's necessarily accurate for another month or so.

  • I has the tummy ultrasound done by 10 wks...had a second where they couldn't tell at 13 wks and.I found out the sex of my baby at 19, but I'm not saying it can't be done earlier, just saying thats how it worked for me..

  • I think it depends on the woman really. My friend found out she was having a girl at 19 weeks i think and i thought that was too early because sometimes you cant tell or see. But she is 100% having a girl. I found out i was having a boy after 2 girls on December 4, 2009. i was 23 weeks at that time and now 29 weeks. The usually do on the tummy ultrasounds around 12 weeks.. Depends on the provider or radiologist.

  • THanks I ask because the hospital is doing free ultrasounds being done by med students and wanted to know if at 14 almost 15 weeks they could do the tummy one, and if it were possible we could see the gender. Thanks.

  • I found out I was having a boy at 17 weeks the first time and at 15 1/2 weeks the second time. Both were clear boy parts. They will be able to do a tummy one for sure for you.
