  • 18- 22 weeks is when they do that ultra sound.
    You can find out earlier but it is not a 100% ID. Male and Female by the book look alike til about 12 - 13 weeks. I found out at 17 weeks by paying for a just for fun ultra sound.
    With my 1st tho I found out at 23 weeks.

  • they won't even give you an ultrasound in the second tri til you're at least 18 can find out can't even get an US before that nor can you request one to see the babies sex...they are only for anatomy and development

  • We found out with both at 16 weeks, but neither was a routine ultrasound. I had bleeding with my first, and had fallen pretty bad with my second. With this one, I am scheduling mine for 19 weeks.

  • You can find out any time after 14 wks. The longer you wait the less like its wrong. Your doctor
    s office will make you wait till you close to 20 wks. I was 17 wks. And it was 100% right. Im going at 15 wks this time.

  • I am waiting until about week 19 to have the ultrasound done but they do have at home tests for around $30. They are supposed to be about 80% accurate. I took one and will know how accurate in 2 more weeks!
