  • I was able to find out I had a girl at a 13 week ultrasound (not a level 2). I also had a friend find out she had a boy at her 13 week one also (we both had high risk pregnancies). With my first two babies I found out with a regular ultrasound at about 17 weeks, so I would definitely say you could find out!

  • Yes, I did a level 2 with my DD at 16 weeks and they found out she was a she.

  • I'm in the same position, i'm the same amt of time along too and they weren't able to tell because the baby wasn't cooperating lol we went because I have a 1/10 chance of having a down syndrome child....we'll be going back in 3 weeks because it still was a little early to detect.

  • Typically the genitals will not drop till the 21st week, but there may be a chance you can view the sex if the position is right.
